Dear Sts Friends:

Okay, whoever said that about the latest AAA activity being in 2017, well, correction, my Mamejo catalog says "Coming soon in Summer of 2018," and I've had my catalog for a couple of years, so it's pretty old. Somehow, I was able to obtain a link to the Mamejo 2021 catalog, although I don't remember what the link said exactly just now. Oh well. I do know that the link had something to do with the website flipping book dot com, or something like that. I just don't remember the actual text. Christy's toy outlet sent me the link in an email awhile ago, so I was able to see the catalog with my mom's help. Anyway, to answer all your questions, AAA is still there, and up and running, except for the past 8 months, because of the pandemic. I heard that from Christy's Toy outlet. Anyway, this info is all I have. Besides the catalog, anyway. If anyone has any more information, then let me know. Because I'm on the hunt for AAA models.

I just bought a set consisting of AAA marked figures at a Lakeshore Learning store. They had this Forest Animals set, and a Farm Animals set which I didn't get (terribly expensive) but I recognize at least a few of the figures on the box as AAA. I also found a partial box of Learning Resources Ocean Animals at a thrift store awhile back; the figures were a mix which included AAA.

I don't recognize the wolf (!!!) but all the others are known AAA sculpts. What a great catch! Especially, of course, the howling gray wolf.  drunken

Unfortunately the wolf wasn't in the set. They had a small sitting/howling wolf stamped AAA instead.

PostSubject: AAA Forest animals?   Information about AAA models ? - Page 3 EmptyMon Jan 23, 2023 6:55 pm

Dear Pipsxlch,

Hi there, could you tell me which AAA figures were in the forest Animals set, as I'm interested in getting some of these from lakeshore learning for my collection. So, the question is: what AAA figures came in the forest animals set? If you could describe them to me that would be great. Also, mom and I looked at the lakeshore learning website, and there's a wild animals classic set, a dinosaurs classic set, a farm classic set, an ocean animals classic set, and of course, the forest one that you got. Each set has around 18 animals in it. I'm only telling you this, so that you can check it out for yourself. Right now, mom and I are in the process of gathering information about these sets, so your descriptions of the forest animals would be very useful.

Thanks in advance,

Aschuck

Anna, I will post descriptions of them tomorrow when I have more time to take them out and describe them fully. If your mom has described the photo on the box to you, i think all of the figures are as pictured except for the wolf.

Dear Pipsxlch,

Yes, yes, yes! Post your descriptions! The info will be very useful, as mom and I haven't been able to find really good pictures of these figures yet. At this point, we're still investigating this whole thingy, of lakeshore learning carrying AAA. Anyway, if you could describe your figures for me, that would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Aschuck

Anna, I have the box here with me, so will describe them as I pick them up. I will not descibe the material, as they all seem to be typical AAA heavy rubbery plastic. They all seem to have the fur sculpted in.
1. Small wolf sitting on its haunches and howling, perhaps 3" tall. Its eyes are closed, and its tail is curled around it. It is sculpted in adult proportions, not those of a pup. It is a dark brownish grey.
2. Adult fox, presumably red fox. It is about 5" long, and 2" at the highest point (its eartips). It is sculpted male. It is standing with its left foreleg raised, as if in mid stride. Its head is turned to the right. Its head and tail are held fairly low. It is a golden tan color, with a heavy dark grey overspray, white on the belly and ears, and blue eyes.
3. Fox pup, about 2" high, closely matches the adult. Colors are the same. It is sitting down and looking up. The tail is curled around its right side.
4. Bull moose adult, about 7" long and 6" high at the highest point (the tips of the antlers). It is standing, facing slightly left. It is also a yellowish tan, with dark overspray on the face and brown antlers and beard.
5. Fawn, in a jumping posture. Total length is perhaps 5", as the legs extend beyond the body to the front and back. Height at the tips of the ears is about 2". It looks like a young fawn, but it does not have spots. It is dark brown with a white belly and red eyes. The tail is up, but it is very tiny. It is facing forward.
6. Black bear, maybe 7" long and 4" high. This is a heavy substantial figure, with the fur sculpting detail over the shoulders very nice. It is standing facing forward, and snarling. It is solid black except for the eyes- dark brown almost covered by the black pupils- and mouth, with a light pink palate, dark pink tongue, and white canines and incisors. A very nice detail is the ridges sculpted into the palate.
7. Whitetail deer buck, 6" to 7" at the highest point of the antlers. He is sculpted very thin and tall. He is standing facing slightly to the left. He is a medium brown, with red eyes and white inside his ears, down his belly and on/around his lowered tail.
8. Owl, standing but with its wings extended as if in flight. Wingtip to wingtip is 6" to 7", though height is less than 2". It is facing forward. It is a medium Golden brown, with white around the edges of the wings and tail, also brushed lightly on the cheeks and beard. The eyes are yellow, outlined in black. The beak and claws are also black. There is black barring on the back, wings, and tail.
9. Raccoon, about 4" and less than 2" in height. It is standing facing slightly to the left and slightly crouched, with its tail curled a little downward. It is dark grey, with white on its belly, and white stripes on its tail and face. The only paint on the eyes is the black pupils. The legs are a darker grey.
10. Chipmunk, sitting up holding a nut(?) it has taken a bite from. It is 2" or a little more high. It is facing left, with its tail curled over its left hip. It is an orangey tan color, with the underside left the blank yellow plastic. The tail and nose to forehead between the ears is black. It has a white stripe above and below each eye, with black around those stripes. The nut is orange and brown, with the inside red.

11. Brown bear, as heavy as the black but a different sculpt. It appears to be walking, with its head turned left. It is about 6" long and 4" high. Unlike the other bear, it has a calm expression and its mouth is only slightly open. It is a light orangey tan/brown with a dark brown belly. The eyes are yellow. The skin around the eyes, lips and nose are dark brown. Inside the mouth is a dark pinkish brown.
12. Another raccoon, identical to the first.
13. Tortoise, medium brown on top and left the whitish plastic on the bottom. The only other paint is a wash of black to bring out the details top and bottom. It is about 3" long and a little over q" high. It is resting on its belly, with its head turned left.
14. Hedgehog, looks rather like an African pygmy hedgehog? It is about 1" high and 2" or a bit long. It is sitting facing forward. It is made of a tan plastic, with its neck and back (areas with quills) painted black and brushed with white to bring out the deeply sculpted quill details. The eyes and nose are red.
15. Another chipmunk identical to the first.
16. Brown bear cub, standing on its hind legs and walking forward like a human. It's right leg is forward, and it has its left foreleg is raised. It looks like its smiling and it has a tiny green leaf in its mouth. The stamp is on its bum. It is about 4" high.
17. Brown bear cub sitting, facing left. It has its left foreleg between its back feet and its right foreleg raised holding a green leaf. It has another leaf hanging out the left side of its mouth. It is maybe a little less than 3" tall. It also has its stamp on its bum, but it is a more attractive figure that doesn't have a silly smile.
18. Bald eagle, in the same pose as the owl- standing facing forward, with its wings spread as if in flight. It is 7"-8" from wingtip to wingtip and a little over an inch high. It is medium brown, fading to white on the wing edges, with a white head and tail. The feet, beak and eyes are orange, with the eyes outlined black.
19. Tortoise, same as the first only this one is only peeking out of its shell. Only the fire legs are out of the shell; they are folded tight against the sides.

Forgot one
20. Beaver crouched on its belly facing forward, about 4" long and 1" high. It is a uniform dark grey with a slight whitish detailing of the ears and muzzle. The oddly tiny smooth tail is dark brown and held behind it.

Fantastic job describing these figures, Kelly. It is also useful to me because my eyes are also defintely not the best. cheers
