I got some wonderful Tiptoi models , with a big help from our so kind and generous friend - Yvette
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 !
And yes, she found for me all models, which were in my wish list
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
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 :
Here is the male :

Now, let`s see the Asian Elephant :
I like this one a lot. It is very charming, but also it has a very nice sculpted, and painted details.
It look`s to me, like young, not fully grown elephant ..

I like both of them very much.

But I like especially the calf. It has great proportions :
