Safari Ltd Focuses on Education, Safety, Service and Dinosaurs?
Focus On Safari Ltd Dinosaur Toys
Safari offers a great variety of ever improving Dinosaur toys.
Founded in 1980 as an educational toy company operating out of the founders apartment, Safari Ltd. has grown into a $200m business.
The growth of their business is mirrored in the new (and very realistic) Dinosaur figures it produces today. The Safari Dinosaurs range in price from about $2.99 to $9.99. Safari also produces the Carnegie Collection of prehistoric animals.
Safari had been producing Dinosaur toys for the Carnegie Collection since 1988. In 1993 they produced 'the Dinosaurs of China' series and 1996 saw Safari jump into the Dinosaur toys game with their own branded line of figures. These were somewhat toy-like but none-the-less realistic and are generally sold as individual figures, out of a bin or off the shelf a la the early MARX Dinosaur toys. Carnegie has remained their "serious" dinosaur toys line although the Safari line itself has been getting a lot more 'serious' of late.
Ranging from cute little Dinosaur babies introduced in 1997 and still available new in retail stores to the amazingly realistic (and ferocious looking) armored fish from the
Devonian Period, Dunkleosteus, Safari is producing the broadest line of prehistoric creatures and Dinosaur toys of any manufacturer today.
Demonstrating their commitment to quality Safari has come out with new molds to replace older models. Here we see the new T-Rex for 2008 standing in front of the more toy-like toy T-Rex from 1996 (still one of my favorites).
Ranging from Carnivores...
Safari has a deep and broad line of Dinosaur toys to augment your personal herd(s).
Given their price point and good looks these make really excellent Dinosaur toys with great "playability". They are tough and wear only makes them look tougher. The 1996 T-Rex is still one of my personal favorites even though it was superseded in 2008. You can read about them and the other Safari Dinosaur toys by clicking on the links in the list of Dinosaurs below.
Safari Ltd. is a very serious player in the creation of realistic Dinosaur toys.
