Greetings. There is now an Animal Toy Blog, a sister blog to the Dinosaur Toy Blog.

Here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If you would like to be a Guest Reviewer, please do so. You can submit by using the email on the site (admin@animaltoyforum.com). Or if you have my personal email, text and images can be sent directly to me.

This blog is for extant animals, as the Dino Toy Blog is for prehistoric critters. We look forward to your contributions!!!

Thanks for sharing the link! Yes, it's quite exciting, I'm not sure why this didn't happen sooner!

If you would like to contribute...

There is no format, and it is good to reflect the Author's personal writing style!

Here are some things to consider (not required, but things that may appeal to the audience):

1. Talk about the species, especially if it is something obscure or has a bizarre biological quirk (common things like lions and elephants probably do not need much of an introduction LOL).

2. Talk about the figure:
-what is is made of?
-what size and scale? Some people are scale-conscience and scales can be very helpful, at the very least the measurements
-is it one piece or does it have to be assembled?
-does the figure have a base? If so, is it permanently attached?
-is the figure unique or commonly made? If common, how does it compare to others?
-playability. Is it a toy or a delicate model?
-recommendations. Who does the figure appeal most to? Collectors? Taxonomic specialists?

You can also look to the Dino Toy Blog for inspiration!

The Blog is taking shape, with 8 reviews! We would love to see contributions from many of you! Think of them as expanded walkarounds LOL
Figures can be:
-new or vintage
-good examples or poor examples
-wild or domestic breeds
-plastic, rubber, resin, metal, or...

the more diversity the better, with both figures and reviewers :)

Just email text and images to the email on the site (admin@animaltoyforum.com)

We've also now added a list of links to the sidebar and Links page, including a link to the STS forum. The blog also now has a header image.

New reviews! We're trying to make sure there's something for everyone, but fish are currently the most reviewed animal group by far.

And if you want to get really technical, there's only been 5 non-fish figures/sets that've been reviewed so far.

I don't! We're not using a strict monophyletic phylogenetic definition of fish: the traditional paraphyletic and most commonly understood meaning will do us just fine. You know, because the blog is for normal people as well as us! tongue

(STSForum needs a fish emoji!)

The reviews are flowing like wine, several this week including three today alone!

No contributions from STS members though... yet! Who will be the first? On the ATF we discussed that the blog hasn't covered many popular or domestic animals yet, that's surely a gap STS members can fill. Very Happy
