Hi everybody,
I got some wonderful Tiptoi models , with a big help from our so kind and generous friend - Yvette cheers
and I would like to show it to you.

But I am making this topic also, because I would like to share some interesting information with you.

When I asked Yvette to help me with getting some of these models , actually this became a hard job for her,
because she found out , that the shops in Munich, which normaly sels Tiptopi models, doesn`t have them anymore.
Then Yvette got the information, that actually Ravensburger has stoped with producing Tiptoi models.

When exactly this happened, we don`t know ... Maybe this year, maybe last one..
But one is sure now, Tiptoi line is retired.

But, as we know Yvette, when she says, that she will find something, she is doing it !  Very Happy
And yes, she found for me all models, which were in my wish list  cheers
She got most of them from different sellers on german auctions and the good thing is,
that also she found some models for her collection too  cheers

Ok, now back to the models in my collection.

Some of them are missing on TAW, so I made also a special photos.
So please TAW editors, be welcome to use it  :)

Let`s start with the African elephants :

Fantastic topic to celebrate the end of an animal themed series. Laughing
You are lucky of knowing a lady from Munich with a magic wand that can resuscitate what doesnt exist anymore. You're right, Tiptoi models are more than decent to join our teams of models from most famous brands. They have also their own design what turns them far from being boring.
Some interesting aspects, the way they painted the giraffe with the spots covering almost entirely their legs. Spots are too much regular but the painting scheme is interesting. Donkeys are lovely, I also like them a lot. For a last note, , although you already owned it, the black rhino is a very interesting model, the high posture, short head, all features correctly represented to the species.
I will take care of your Lego photos for TAW. Very Happy

Never heard of the brand, but they are very beautiful. I especially like the elephant calf and the donkeys. Why do they have a large "droplet" on their hips?

Beautyful photos, and such nice models !
I have never seen the elephants before, and they are a great surprise Applause Applause
I have the donkeys, of course, and also the antelope, which fits really well with the models

Thankyou very much, dear Kosta !!!

When they were launced, I got an agreement with Ravensburger that they would mail me when they had new models, so I could up-date TAW, but now I see that I have not heard from them since 2017 Shocked
And here you tell us the reason .....
Still I can see that TAW is not up-dated, for insrtance the Elephant calves are not there.

The orange "drop" is a kind of app. You need a special pen, and when you touch it to the spot, you can hear something about the animal.
I am not sure it was a very good idea, because most people find it ruins the model.

Also, I am sure the idea was too late.
Perhaps 20 -30 years ago children would have found it exiting, but these days they have everything on their phone,
Also, the pen was quite expensive, and the speak was in German, which limits the market a lot.

Interesting idea, but yes, they could have made the spot a bit less obvious. Do the animals or the pen speak?

Wow, what a great presentation of the Tiptoi animals!
The photos are beautiful, especially the light shading on the outer edge is very nice.

First a presentation of each model and then together with models from other companies.

Kosta, you were surprised, that the Tiptoi animals could not be ordered online on the official homepage by Ravensburger although other tiptoi products like games or puzzles could be ordered there.

Ravensburger shows the animal models, but writes that they are only available in stores:

https://www.ravensburger.de/produkte/tiptoi/tiptoi-spielfiguren/tiptoi-afrikanischer-elefantenbulle-00356/index.html

OK, so I thought, the problem is easy to solve. I will buy them from a shop in the city next time.
So far for years they have been available in toy shops, a large bookstore and various department stores. They were available everywhere, just like the Schleich figures.

First I visited the biggest toy store in Munich: They have a big range of Tiptoi articles, but no more animal figures. The seller said, they were taken out of the assortment. Why, he doesn't know it.

Now I became curious and asked in two other department stores. But also with the same result. They lhave a large assortment of Tiptoi items from Ravensburger - but no more animal figures. The same in the bookstore. Everywhere the sellers said the same thing.

I found the Tiptoi figures on Ebay and various online flea markets. When they arrived at my home and waited for shipping, they were standing on my shelves next to figures of different brands. So I notiiced, that they fit very well together. This is also shown by Kosta's comparison pictures very well! The orange dot is not really disturbing. I also bought some figures for my own collection. Kosta's pictures show very impressively, how beautifully the figures are modeled, the quality is very good. Interesting is, the sellers in the different shops could not say - or maybe did not want it - who is the manufacturer of the Tiptoi figures. Some sellers suspected, that Schleich produced the animals for Ravensburger. But, that was a "trade secret" at Ravensburger.
That was the story for hunting the Tiptoi figures with some intresting results. Very Happy sunny study
Many thanks Kosta for these interesting topic with all the very nice pictures! sunny

Roger, the Tiptoi digital pen contains a sensor. If you move this pen over the orange dot, a code is read. An audio file is then played back in the pen via loudspeaker. The pen works with AAA batteries. This is how the pen speaks. Tiptoi is an artificial word, made up of the German word "Tippen /antippen (to touch)" and the English word "toy" for the German word "Spielzeug" (toy).

Thank you very much everybody for your nice comments :)

Yes, Roger (Portugal) , you noticed very well ( and I was sure that you will do that Very Happy ), that hte legs of the  giraffes are painted very well . Especially on the calf, which is actually a very small model, with very thin legs, the spots are a lot ...all over.. and the model look`s very good.
Alo I like very much the black rhino. The body and these long legs are just perfect. Roger, you pointed that the short head is tipical for a black rhino... I only think that on this model , the head is too short...
Actually we had discuss this model with Kiki ,you and me in the past... somewere on other topic.

Thank you Susanne and Yvette for answering the Roger`s question about the orange "drop" on the models ... I was too late :) But you explained the reason and the technology,much better than me :)

Yvette, I want to thank you again for all the work and time, you have put , to find these models for me :)
Also if you want and when you have time, maybe you can also show some of your models here.. and to make this topic bigger  sunny

Nice idea. I suppose it would have been better if the animals themselves could speak, but then each animal would need to have a loudspeaker, which would make them too expensive.

Yes, you're right. One of the differences between black and white rhinos is that the former have shorter heads but surely not as small as the Tiptoi model. Laughing However, it turns the figure quite recognizable for the featured species.
