Animal figurines are figurines that represent animals, either as toys or collectibles. They are often made of plastic.
Inexpensive animal figurines may be used as toys, especially for toddlers. Dinosaur models are popular, often available at museum gift shops or toy stores, and often have inaccurate features such as excessively large mouths.
Historically, animal figurines were made of lead, and were made by several manufacturers, including Britains Limited. Several companies now manufacture realistic plastic models, such as Schleich and Safari Ltd.
