PostSubject: Information about AAA models ?   Information about AAA models ? EmptyFri May 07, 2010 1:17 am

I wonder if anyone could give me any information about AAA models. I have asked some fellow collectors here in the UK but all we know is that they were sold in a toy shop called the Early Learning Centre.

I only just realised that I had quite a large collection of them which I sold a few years ago online, Elephants, Zebras, Kangaroo etc. I think I only have 6 of their dogs, two not shown on the site.

So are they easy to get a hold of ? Are they still made ?

I ask as the shop where I originally got them from, The Early Learning Centre, has stopped selling them and is selling Schleich instead.

I hope this is in the correct place. I am self taught German so do not understand a lot Embarassed

You can buy AAA or ELC on eBay, but they are (or were?) a part of Schleich, I mean schleich produced them for places like Early Learning Centre. Yes, they are still made, but I don't know who makes them now.

I don't know much about their background, so I'll leave it for others to say.

Thank you Very Happy

Yes, when I sold mine I put them as ELC animals. I had no idea about AAA. I regret selling them now, especially the Zebra and Camels Mad

It´s not right that Schleich produced them. AAA was never a part of Schleich. In the 90´s Schleich and Bullyland bought some figures from AAA and sold them with own article numbers in their own programm.

Sorry for giving wrong information Torben. I guess you're the best person to answer this question.

I bought the adult hippo long time ago under the ELC name here in Holland, but it is a AAA figurine obvious...

I just sorted out my little collection and of all the animals I bought from ELC, only a few are AAA animals. The rest are marked ELC. I did just win a auction on eBay for a set of three Zebras. Two are ones that I sold a few years ago (childhood memories have already come flooding back) but the other Zebra, I'm not sure what make it is.

I shall have to look when they arrive.

Well, AAA is the same as ELC in this case i think...
But not always marked as AAA.
Please make pictures of your new ones when they arrive, then we can see what it is... :)

Sometimes you only have one A in a circle and sometimes you will find ELC but, as Willy said, those models are often AAA Wink

I only know double B, BB, Brigitte Bardot... tongue queen

Ok, i know a nice joke about that theme...just of topic for short...

A woman knew that her husband loved Brigitte Bardot very much, so she decided to make a very special birthday present for him.
On both cheeks of her butt, she let herself tattood with a huge B, so together it would form BB when she turned her back to her husband...
When she came home the same evening, she kept it a secret for a while, untill it was time to go to bed.
Her husband was already waiting in bed, waiting for his present...
Then she came out of the shower, turned her back on him, bent over forwards, and let down her panties, and said...
Do you like it???
Then the man said...
Who the F@@@ck is BOB? Wink Shocked Rolling Eyes affraid question

In recent years, B. Bardot is a passionate advocate for animal rights, is she not? Of course, she is also a follower Jean-Marie Le Pen and the Front National. What a Face

Yes, she was, or still is...
What political preferences she has, i don't know...
The right movement in politics tend to be winning here in Europe the last years, as things go bad and worse the last years, i can understand the people around here...
Maybe not good actually, but i hope it shakes up the stubborn, old fashionned and stuffed politicians around here... Cool

This is an old thread, but maybe somebody is still watching and can help me with my question. I am after some AAA/ ELC non-animal figures. Apparently, they made this tiny mini line of mythical creatures. I think they are very small, the size of those figures sold in various tubes. Does anyone know anything about these?

They are ever so beautyful ! Much better than the TOOB ones from Safari. Rolling Eyes
I have a tiny AAA Centaur . Perhaps he is from that set ?
He was on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , but it is some years ago.

I would love to see a picture, Susanne. I have not seen that one at all. I collect miniatures on mythology, fairy tales, legends, and art and history. I'd really love to find this set, but it is either rare or I am not searching with the proper terms.
