Just as Kosta, I love these figures and also because of their vintage charm. The design is also very reminescent of the French vintage figurines, I guess.
I remember seeing a long time ago a Spanish blog talking about these figures but I don't know why now I can't find anything just using Google.
Spanish figures were painted and the fox, for instance, was not available in Spain.
I think the lioness is also used as a black panther and that there is alos a kangaroo, maybe a penguin and a few more. I will let you know if I ever find that blog again.
I saved in my pc this picture, probably from that blog, showing a promotional from a Spanish newspaper.

Very interesting pub Rogério!  Very Happy

The spanish figures were painted with natural colours or "flashy"ones?..

If you could find some samples on spanish ebay, it would be fine, above all with new species that were'nt available in France like kagaroo!..

here are some samples of boxes found on french ebay:

..by mistake, the fox is often sold as "loup" (wolf) on french ebay!.. because nobody kept the boxes..

When I was a child, we had only the little lioness and with its little head and lack of stuff at the top of tail, I was convinced it was a puma!

Shocked Curiously, I never met lion small model.. It's maybe very rare or doesn't exist..

They are not hard to find in Spanish auction websites. If it is correctly described, one of the most interesting is this lot.

Very Happy oh yes! I see the 2 black lionesses, the white polar bear, the grey rhino and the reddish camel! it's strange for me to discover these so old models with natural colours and that gives me the desire to paint some of mines! thanks a lot Rogério! Applause

( the kangaroo is the one from Clairet)

Actually, using auction websites as a source is not very trustable thus my mistake. Often figures are misidentified by the sellers.
Luis, an autority regarding vintage Spanish figures, I think it is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on forum, claims on its wonderful blog that the Spanish series is composed by 12 figures. All of them can be seen in its blog through this link. Instead of painting, you could try to complete the Spanish collection.

Ah, that brings back memories!
Thanks for sharing.
I collected the Omo animal figures too (when I was young)(I'm from the Netherlands)

I still have several of them.
But I don't remember that they came in two sizes.
I never owned the elephants though.
