Im looking for some plastic animals.. Farm or zoo.
DD has inherited some Dinosaurs from a friend and would like to add these with some Animal.

Toys R us ones seem quite expensive and the ELC ones seem quite small.
DD is only 13 mths so they need to be a fair size.

Anyone suggest anywhere to look?

Some cheaper toy shops (or John Lewis pocket money bit) sell bags of plastic animals for a couple of quid. They are not as substantial as the ELC ones but who cares!

We have Scleich toy animals. They're not the cheapest but they're lovley quality and very sturdy for little ones. My mum bought us most of them. She lives in rural Wales and apparently they are the farm animal toy of choice for farmers children!! They are stocked in a couple of independent toy shops near us but are quite widely available I think.

we also have the Scleich toys, and my ds nearly 7 still loves them so well worth the expence IMHO. He atill plays with them all the time and they are always the choosen toys to take on long car journeys and holidays.

Yes re schleich - they are fantastic and there are so many. Online is best. DD has a whole stable. DS#2 has some dinosaurs.

Mothercare are doing tubs of about 8 quite large animals for £8. They are slightly soft plastic - like bath toys, rubber duck texture. They do safari animals or farm animals. Ds2 (20mo) really likes them (I have 2 hippos living in my handbag now).
