What scale are Safari Ltd figures in?

We do list the scale for our Wild Wildlife and Incredible Creatures lines, but Safari Ltd figures are not specifically scaled with each other.

While our toys are not made to scale, many of our collections are generally compatible based on size.

In general, our Wild Wildlife and Incredible Creatures tend to be larger figurines.

Our Wild Safari figures are in the medium range and can be displayed together.

On the smaller end are our TOOBS,  which are usually 2-3 inches long, and our Good Luck Minis, which are typically about an inch long.

You can always check our sizing chart for more information.

Does Safari Ltd® safety test their products?

For over 30 years, our products have been laboratory tested and have met all lead safety requirements. Safari Ltd® is proud to announce that all our products are phthalate and lead free. What are Phthalates? Phthalates are softening agents added to PVC that can be harmful to children. Our products are also in compliance with the new safety requirements put forth by the CPSIA on August 14, 2008.

What are Safari Ltd items made of?

Our items are made from a durable and strong plastic material that is safety and chemical tested, and chosen depending on the specific requirements of each toy. Many of our products are made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride), flexible TPE (thermoplastic elastomer), or ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), a more rigid material. Safari Ltd toys do not contain latex.

In addition to rigorous safety testing to ensure our toys are free of harmful chemicals, our material partners are subject to strict quality and safety controls to ensure our toys are safe and durable enough to last a lifetime!


What can I do to keep my Safari Ltd®  toys looking like new?

Our products are made of ultra-durable plastic materials, but they are not invincible! 

Storing your figurines properly will help prolong their lifespan for years to come. Ideally, all of our toys would find homes in toy chests, closets, or other storage spaces that are cool, dry, and tucked away from the elements. This will ensure that their colors stay vibrant and that they do not become warped or damaged.

Safari Ltd® animal figures and collectibles will also thrive being displayed indoors on desks, shelves, or other cool, dry locations.

What is the best way to clean Safari Ltd® toys?

Our toys are made of durable, flexible, non-toxic materials that can be hand-washed with a clean sponge or cloth, dish soap, and water. After rinsing, allow the toy to air-dry or gently wipe it down with a cloth towel—it should be good as new!

  • For a deeper cleaning, you can place our figurines securely in the top rack of your dishwasher. Remember to opt out of heat drying!
  • In order to avoid damaging the paint on the product, please avoid using abrasive soaps, sponges, or other cleaning tools.
  • Excess paint marks or light scuffs can be removed from white products with a Magic Eraser.

HELP! My favorite animal toy is warped. What can I do?

Luckily, our figures are made with pliable plastics, meaning that they can be bent back into shape! You can correct almost any of our figurines by using your hands to gently reshape the bent pieces. They should return to their original state in no time.

What do I do if I received a damaged or defective item?

Oh no! that’s terrible news, but don’t worry, we got your back.

If your toy arrives broken, damaged or defective, Bernie and our Customer Care gang will work to make it right for you.

Simply contact us, please include a picture of the damaged items and include as much info as possible (order number, name, batch code, etc)

Batch codes are located either under the tummy, tail or foot. On TOOBS, it can be found stamped into the label on the package, just above the barcode.

The more info provided, the quicker we can get it fixed! It will also help us to prevent future issues for others.
