An email from CollectA.

Quote.
"What is really discouraging is the copycat is a big company with over 150 years old history and now sell the knockoffs in Greek & Italy with TV commercials. That really worries a lot especially they are all straight copies. Anyway, we are not scared of fighting with the giant."
Unquote.

I think it's disgusting what the company did.

It`s interesting how they change the Papo Triceratops.
It`s actually mirrored reverse from the original...and the head is more rotated...

Actually, they are made from a cheap material...and inside are hollow. They have ugly grout in the midle.
And the legs (especially) on the deer..and giraffe, are so soft, and they are crooked Mad

Yes, the seller who I found...he sells this toys to the small shops.
That`s why I couldn`t buy only one toy from him..but he sold to me the hole box with 12 models..but they are only 5 animals Very Happy
But they are very cheap. The hole box - for 8 euros :)

Kosta is right. They look nice in pictures but when we touch them they're really bad. Very poor manufacturing . They are here 1,80 €, the same price of a pair of Happy Kin Toys little dinosaurs. I like the dinos much more than these CollectA copies. :)

Like Gugogulo76, no stores near me sell CollectA; any copies I have found have been on eBay. I wish the Chinese companies would just make their own designs Mad Rolling Eyes Suspect I don't know if anything can be done about them copying other companies designs scratch I think something should be done, so then the Chinese companies will learn to make their own designs and not copy off others.

China does not seem to have any manufactures with original ideas. All they do is copy!
They do the same thing to the company my dad works for.
It really ticks me off when people do this, but there is nothing we can do about it. Mad Mad
