That's not a bad idea surely! Very Happy I am glad you're sharing all that info and it is great to see the name of my country there. Very Happy

Look up 'People of Walmart' lol. I've seen just as bad as most at my closest Walmart.

I broke down today and bought one, sadly I threw my money away it's one of the cartoon characters. Sad  I did take pictures, I will post them when I can get them loaded. I will give the Yowie to a kid at church I guess. I didn't bother trying the chocolate (I'm a mutant anyhow and don't really care for even good chocolate). It had the expiration date of Sept. '15.

Edit in the photos-

They have the nasty habit of running little shops out of business, underpay their workers, the list goes on...

For those ending up with Yowies instead of animals, the cartoon characters are made of a different (softer) material that also seems quite a bit heavier. You could try doing a rough weight comparison on a few and going with the lighter ones - the odds should be greater you have an animal. They are also bigger, so maybe shaking a few and picking the ones that rattle more (more space = smaller animal)?

Interesting to know. I just grabbed one; didn't compare it to any others. I was somewhat surprised by the weight of it; I expected it to be lighter. If I decide to attempt any more, I will take your advice.

I was in my other nearby (nicer) Walmart that sells gas, and they didn't have any Yowies at all.

Edit to add I'm at my brother in law's and his Walmart does have them, so I'd guess they're pretty widespread in distribution. This is about 35 miles from home for me, and the 1st Walmart past the 'nicer' one in this direction of travel.
I didn't buy any, but I picked up and shook a few and noticed that some are noticeably lighter, with a lot more rattle when shook. So thank you Blublub for the tip!

Many thanks Laura , these little leaflets help children learning more about the Wild Life and are not excessive in terms of information. They help turning these toys even more educative. Very Happy

Not sure if this was already posted here, but it seams they put some sort of poster/checklist on the Yowies site:

So for informational purposes I'm not sure there are substantial differences, but the Yowies are marked either "made in china 1" or "made in china 2"

I think these numbers stem from moulds made for more than one piece at a time for faster production.
It makes it easier to identify the place needing repair, if there is a problem with the mould. Very Happy

I hope these turtles can return to their original position, I've read somewhere that it is not easy for them to do it on their own. affraid Wink
Seriously, I think it is always interesting to know, sometimes we neglet some markings and this hobby has teached us that sometimes they're more important then what we thought before. :)

Hey, back at the forum for the first time! Very Happy I'm loving these models. I'd really like the clownfish though. If anybody gets a spare clownfish, please let me know! Very Happy I would really like that for my reef.

I started looking for these this week. After buying about five boxes I have all the animals except for the fox and wombat.  I will post my extras later. I bought all that my Walmart had.

If you've got a spare clownfish, I would definitely like a trade. Very Happy

Don't some of these remind you of major brands? Retired schleich anteater, schleich desert tortoise, Safari ltd bison...

Hmm, I don't think so. scratch
The tortoise, for instance is a beautyful Galapagos tortoise , while the ones from Sahleich are non-specific ones.

Unfortunately I will be very busy this week end, but perhaps somebody else has the time to show comparisons ? Very Happy

I think it is probably inevitable that they will remind someone of major brands, since these seems slightly better sculpted than some of their Yowie predecessors.  I don't have those specific models you asked about. But I can show you the comparison pics I made previously with the ones I have...

Papo Anteater, Yowie Anteater, Safari Ltd Anteater (w/baby)

Yowie - US relaunch - Page 3 Anteat10

Schleich Bison, Yowie Bison
Yowie - US relaunch - Page 3 Bison_10

I admit that I didn't make comparison photos of ALL the yowies, but the ones I did are one pages 7& 8 of Exerpts from Wilorvise's collection.  I'm a bit busy for the next few days. Got behind on some stuff.
