I've recently discovered the Schleich brand of toys and now I am obsessed. For plastic animal figures, they are very well detailed and pretty close to 1:12 inch scale. The company was founded in Germany in 1935 and is one of the largest manufacturers of toy figurines. I'm sooo bummed that it took me this long to discover them. The main reason I collect figures is for photography. I photograph the miniatures I make myself on a daily basis (for selling online ) but taking photos of toys is just for fun.

When I found this lovely creature in the garden, I couldn't resist posing it on a Hot Wheels car (yes, I collect those too lol).
