Who would have thought that teeny tiny rubber toys would bring such fun for toy photographers? And yet, the good luck minis from Safari Ltd do just that!
I’ve really fallen in love with these little models, and I thought I would share the benefits of them with you and see if anyone else loves these as much as I do! This is a very quick review, as befits the simplicity of these toys!
So what’s so charming about these little creatures?
1. They are pretty detailed for a 75p bit of rubber. I mean, sure the printing is not perfect, but for the cost and the size, it’s not bad!
2. They are good to pop in your pocket for a fun photo when out and about. They do attract a little bit of fluff, but put them in a little bag or container, and they are the perfect pocket-sized toys for just about all locations!
3. There is a huge range of options in them, from sloths to dinosaurs to pufferfish. Check out the website to see just how many types of these toys there are! I mean, where else are you going to get such sea creatures to photograph?
4. They are cute. This pretty much does it for me! I’m not even that big a dog fan, but check out these adorable models!
At the Cambridge toy safari I think we all bought some of these tiny toys, and you can spot them in photos from across the weekend! Check out the hashtag and see if you can find them!
I now have 14 of them, and I can definitely see myself getting more! For the cost, size and variety, they are the perfect pocket money toy for all toy photographers! They are also perfect for this months MeWe cheap toys challenge!
I think i’m just fallen in love. Although most of the credit goes to your awesome pictures, the one with the chameleon and the sloth are my fav!
Thanks Marco! I love the sloth one as well! Finger clinging cute!
I carry them with me everywhere, but so far I didn’t take that many photos… I hope this will change as they are amazing!
Yeah! Take some photos with them! Can’t wait to see them!
Very cool Lizzi!! Love your pix
Loved this post and the tiny toys!
I have a few bags of tiny animals on my Amazon wish list and will get some soon. I can’t wait to put a few in my bag and have fun creating little scenes when I’m out and about.
Thanks Wade! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Beautiful photos Lizzi! I have a little brontosaurus in a similar size that I love but don’t shoot often. This post has inspired me to take him out of the toy box!
Thanks James! Looking forward to seeing the results with your brontosaurus!
So fun, Lizzi! I laughed out loud with delight at the pufferfish. I can definitely see the appeal of these little guys!
Thanks Teddi! I’m so glad it made you laugh! I’m relishing the inspiration that Spring is bringing! 😀
