These days I am having a great time going through my box of unicolour models, which are mainly German brands. Very Happy
And now I found these two which ar neither German nor really unicoloured  Shocked

Can anybody tell me something about them ?

Hi Susanne

Timpo zoo range started in 1950 and were hollow-cast metal. These were designed by Roy Selwyn-Smith (who went onto designing most of the Herald range of figures). Then in the mid-1950's production was changed to plastic and any additions to the hollow-cast metal series were designed by Norman Tooth. Both your Lion and Rhinoceros figures were never issued in hollow-cast metal so were designed by Norman Tooth.

These Timpo plastic zoo animals had a production run from the mid 1950's to the early 1970's.

Your rhinoceros figure is number 6003.

Your Lion figure is 6004.

BTW Timpo is derived from the words Toy Importers and were founded in London in 1945 and later had a factory in Scotland.

Hope this helps.

You are welcome Taylor but I had a bit of help:

Timpo Farm and Zoo book

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

This is a superb 28 page book featuring the complete range of Timpo Farm and Zoo products produced in plastic. This is a full colour publication with just a few pages in black and white featuring copies of original catalogues/information leaflets.

Published by Plastic Warrior in 2011. Photos printed in this issue were provided by Barney Brown, a well known plastic figure collector and author of several books on Herald/Britains plastic figures.
