I bought these up the post office when i was a kid. I remember getting these figures in two sets, i think one set had more than the other.
Thanks to everyone for their help with this so far.

This serie of New Ray was sold in diffrent kind of sets. Basically it was called "Zoo park" but as i remembered they were also sold in single blister packs.

Set 1:
Tiger
Python
Gorilla
Polar bear
Black leopard (panhter)

Set 2:
Rhinoceros
Koala
Moose
Anteater
Wolf

Set3:
Gnu (Wildebeest)
Panda
Elephant
Antelopes (Eg Gazelles)
Lioness

Set 4:
Horse + hunter (eh, with camera...)
Fox (with young)
Hippopotamus
Two rabbits, two Squirrels and two racoons on a piece of land

Set 5:
Lion
Zebra with foal
Kangaroo
Wild boar with piglet
Camel

Set 6:
Brown bear
Chimpanzee family
Giraffe
Wild horse
Lizard

They are all roughly 1:32 scale, some is good, (ex Wildebeest, Wolf) same bd (Camel, rhino).
The coulors differs a lot from diffrent sets, some are ok some terrible.

Later on they relaesed family groups of Cheetah with 4 cubs, White tiger with cubs, and as I remember Wild boar with piglets, fox with puppys and maybe something else.

The also made farm animals att that time, now they merly makes hunting sets, some of that animals are nice. And I think it was New Ray who made some horse jumping sets I have got similar to Britains show jumping set from the 60:s.

There are other modern chinese makers like Tim which ha a nice set with a deer family, wild boars, squirrels and hares + sets with farm animals.

I realize I'm adding nothing of value here, but: OMG! Hippo on the move! :DIs this the first hippo model that isn't standing still and/or yawning?

Thanks for the photos, they all look great. I have one of the cows that's in one of the photos but mine has what looks to be Chinese painted on the sides.

Lots of interesting ones there, some of the groups are different than you see often and remind me of the old Britains.

I have these wildlife sets too cheers
But a lot of them are in a not so good condition, cause as a child, I played a lot with them. So some of them have a lack of ears, the antilopes aren´t stick on the ground. Leguan has lost his ground and the panda has lost his food Sad

Kikimalou: You are probably right about the Clairet cat, its build more like a cheetah, some figures are actually not so great modelled... I'm not really sure that it is a Clairet, but the material feels like it.

Didn't know its was rare, I'm not good at Clairet, is there a cataloque somewhere?

Are You sure about the wild boar being japanese? I don't now where I've got it but probably in a lot. Never seen any japanese animals sold in Sweden.

I think it is a CLAIRET, it is a so typical pose Wink 

Unfortunately no catalogues are known from this old brand No

Aha, but is there a difference between PV (Playvison?) and Yujin cause I have some PV:s?

Mine is marked Hog boar China, but it looks like mine except that Yours is better painted.

I am not an expert with these figures as you are but it is very interesting to me once I love these rare and little stylized vintage figures. I watched on Willy's collection once the first Clairet figure Lennart is showing looks much more a cheetah than a leopard to me but of course it can be illusive due to the lack of accuracy of these figures. Very Happy
I have found this leopard in Willy's collection and this one I am sure is a leopard.

It is a leopard and it is a CLAIRET Wink  This mold was also used by WENDAL and MARX TOYS... CLAIRET touch' rules cheers 

Lennart's lying one is also a CLAIRET, I have no doubt about this. The company made also nearly the same tiger.

Well, we are far from NEW RAY isn't it ? Laughing

Well we are a bit from New Ray but it's still interesting. The french brands were never on sale in Sweden so I bought my first Starlux ones in Italy. But I have never seen any Clairet in shops in the 70- 80- and 90-ties when I started to buy Starlux in France.

My few Clairet are from E-bay, since I only collect 1:32 scale its a bit sad that the Clairet ones often are small. And it would be nice to know what the brand made and of what, Starlux is covered in two fantastic books but not Clairet then?

And back to New Ray, You could say what You want about their hunting sets but some of the animals like for example their pronghorns are really good by todays standards.
