Hi, I thought I would share my little collection with you all..... I've had 3 Schleich chimps for a few years, but recently decided to create my own "Monkey World", and over the last couple of weeks, I've added quite a few new monkeys and apes to my menagerie. Here's what I've got so far....

The whole gang:

Safari Spider Monkey and Lemur:

Safari Golden Lion Tamarin.... I wasn't expecting it to be so big (should've read the ebay description more closely!) - it's a really nice piece, but I was disappointed it can't really fit in with the rest of my collection. (Chimp to show scale.):

That's it! Hope you like my little monkeys! Very Happy

Thank you Ana! Very Happy Yes, I've been tempted to get the CollectA chimps, and also the Papo chimps - I don't like the look of them as much as Schleich, but then Schleich are nearly always superior in my book. I've also nearly bought the Monkey Toob, but have been put off by the quality... a few of them are nice though, and would add a few more species to my collection! They're all still on my shopping list, so I'm sure I'll get them eventually.

My one seems to be the latest Safari chimp (I'm not sure how old it is).... I have seen older versions, and they all seem to have flesh-coloured faces, but they are less detailed. Here's one, it's not from my own collection, I copied the picture from ebay:

There's also the one from the Toob set, which is very crudely sculpted and painted in comparison.

By the way, does anyone have the two different adult male gorillas by Schleich? (14196 and 14661) I only have the later one, and didn't bother to get the older one, as I thought they looked too similar. However, I'm now wondering if I should get him - I would love to see a photo of the two side by side to properly compare them. :)
