Momma Told Me: Play with your imagination.

Action Figures. The very concept defines childhood.

Though the term may have a masculine association, rest assured that action figures are not just G.I. Joe and Thor replicas. Action figures, by nature, typically represent people with moveable appendages that can literally participate in various 'actions.' However, action figures also encompass a wide array of plastic and resin features cast to resemble everything from celebrities and cartoon characters to anatomic marsupials and more. Safari LTD, with over 25 years in the industry, is one of the largest worldwide companies dedicated to educational and whimsical action figures. From their historical sets of horses, farms, and dogs to their widely sought after fantasy figures of mythical realms and dragons, Safari LTD has a high chance of being in your home already.
From an early age I was fascinated by the world around me, especially the seemingly never-ending range of insects and animals there was to explore. My favorite place to visit was the California Science Museum, and a close send was Michaels Craft Store. Believe it or not, our local Micheal's had an entire aisle of Safari LTD characters arranged by animal and size. I could sort through the bins for hours discovering the new inventory, as Safari LTD was always sure to release new characters each year. But what made these action figures so very special was the incredible detail each hand painted animal featured. First featured at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in 1986 (the same year I was born), Safari LTD has some of the very same painters still working on the iconic Carnegie dinosaurs today! Not only does this company have a great respect for quality, but they clearly have a wonderful relationship with their employees too.
Whether you're looking for a collection of creepy crawlies that glow in the dark, or a Toob full of your daughter's favorite animal, Safari LTD has creatures big and small to stuff stockings and fill gift boxes. And, while I personally think a love of the animal kingdom is educational already, Safari LTD even carries a line of Safariology Science sets that cover lifecycles, the solar system, exploration and more. Their Toob collections are literal tubes of small replicas inside an easily resealable container with a string to tote, and a spinning globe top latch. Parents will love that these figures come with their own carrier and cover topics from everyday animals to world destinations and American Indians. (Did I mention these mini replicas are also great for school projects?)

We received a Penguin and a Panda Toob for Sabrina (11) to explore with and a smile immediately broke out on her face as she counted one after another, unique penguins and pandas spilling from the Toob. There were baby animals, momma and baby sets, variations of the species and even different poses to play with. I was consistently impressed with the level of detail put into each character's mold and the wonderful paint job which brought them to life. We also had a chance to explore the lifecycle of the frog and butterfly; and enjoyed playing a mini game to see who could arrange the characters in order the quickest. These life-cycle sets also came with an easy read guide to each cycle step and the importance in the character's development. Safari LTD was also kind enough to enclude their full color product catalog, just in time for more Christmas wishes!
