PostSubject: Small Safari "bin animals"   Tue 11 Jun - 0:52

Hi All! My first post on this forum.
I wanted to post pictures of some small Safari ltd figures that I got from a bin some years ago. They are miniature sized, but of a higher quality than the Safari toob animals – they are made of a strong, heavy plastic and well painted. The ones I have are all North American forest/arctic animals.

The fox looks pretty happy.

It’s a lot bigger (and bolder) than its forest toob counterpart.

I really like eyes on the caribou, very cute-looking.

It looks like it could squeeze through a pretty tight gap….

The musk ox reminds me of a farm-grown sheep.

It’s dwarfed by the hulking Playvisions musk ox.

The howling wolf, compared with a wolf from a wild republic tube.

I love its expression.

The walrus has a big smile on its face.

Here it is, next to a safari sea lion from the sea life toob.

The Elk is one of my favorites. It is a lot chunkier and “softer” than the Playvisions elk. Its antlers are at least twice as big.

I really like these models, and I wish I had more of them. Although they are not as accurately proportioned as the playvisions models, I think they have a distinctive “charm” of their own, especially their faces.

Welcome on forum, Phrog! Very Happy
I agree that these Safari Authentics are very charming, I have myself the fox, but the PV elk looks absolutly wonderful. Can you still find easily Play Visions in Canada?

I am surprised at how much they sell for on ebay!

Yes, PV elk is very nice! I wish very much that I could find more Playvisions in Canada, but animal bins disappeared from the stores years ago. I can buy safari tubes and Schleich at some stores, but all of my playvisions are ones I kept from childhood. Are there online stores that sell playvisions? I've heard that Ebay is the best option

You have a wonderful collection of the rare Safari authentics, I vaguely recall seeing a few of these in bins when I was a young child. I also have the fox in two colors, wolf in two colors and will soon be getting the elk, reindeer and arctic fox, the walrus is completely new to me, I have never seen him at all! Very Happy These guys are great classics!

Today I got a little knockoff of the Play Visions Queen's Purple Wrasse from the plastic fish set! Not as nicely painted but still super cute! :)
Play Visions does do a nice job.
