ELC large animals (he's too young for the small cheaper ones I think) are £4 each and I've just lost my bid on ebay for a stash of them and there's none on there at the moment. REally would like ot get him elephant, giraffe etc to play with.

ooooooooooooh you lovely mumsnetter

hadn't thought of tesco, will have a nose in there this week. ARe the poundstretcher ones little though? Need chunky or he will scoff them

I cant find them, am sure ds had some somewhere....sorry.

yes, you get those animals in tubes. The dds got a lot in France recently. You get them here too, just can't remember where I've seen them. So I'm no help really.

i have about 20 of the medium/large size.

i cant give them away though (see car thread), so what would you pay plus postage?

Thank you for looking totaleclipse. Lady Victoria the stuff I missed out on ebay went for £3.70 for 30 animals plus p and p but I could go up to £5. DOn't worry if you would rather not sell them for that, I fully understand.

My Mum's a car boot sale addict and regularly gets loads of toys at bargain prices for my 2. Would be worth a try if you're going to be up at that time anyway.

Another vote for Poundstretcher, they do little clear tubs with about8 wild animals/dinosaurs/farm animals in, think they are £2 and you get a little plastic playmat too. Worth the money, ds has some dinosaur ones he loves them and they don't take up loads of space!

Just seen size question. They are about 2inches high each figure, and very resilient to chewing, bashing about. smile

You might pick some up in a charity shop.

on ebay

fick Mon 27-Aug-07 10:02:36

more ebay

thanks fick ,I saw the first ones but thought dye cast meant they were metal so didn't look closer (look plastic though) will bid on the second lot I think.
