Today I am showcasing this stunning CollectA musk ox, this beautiful addition to Animal Kingdoms has superb detailing. At just $9.82 is it great value. While less well known in NZ compared to Schleich, CollectA is a world reknown brand, especially celebrated by collectors for their accurate life like sculpts, huge range and affordability. . . . . . . . . . #animalkingdoms #collecta #schleich #animalfigures #animaltoys #muskox #nzsmallbusiness #muminbiz #familyowned #toystore #nzfamily #nzmums #quality #nzchristmas #kidsdecor #collecta #imaginativeplay #parenting #playbasedlearning #montessori #beingmum Photo from @sasstodxo

Looking for a fun Christmas stocking filler that can be played with all year round? This beautiful CollectA woodland Caribou Reindeer is one of my favourite CollectA models. It is perfect for a Christmas decoration, prop or gift but is neutral enough to be played with all year around! Every year we see people turn this beautiful reindeer into Christmas globes, decorations, table settings, gifts and even hood ornament (yes its happened!) This lovely wreath was made by @ohivy . . . . . . . . #animalkingdoms #collecta #schleich #animalfigures #christmascrafts #nzchristmas #christmaswreaths #reindeer #christmasdecor #christmasdecorations #jinglebells #caribou #giftideas #santasleigh #nzsmallbusiness #aucklandmum #familyowned #toystore #nzmums #nzkids #stockingstuffers #nz #newzealand #afterpaynz #laybuynz

Is it just me, or does it sometimes feel like the toys are taking over the house! Good thing our animals are so beautiful to look at! These mountaineering animals are on a journey up the mountains to the land of room. Watch out for the giants that live in the mountains and the four legged beast with the tail of destruction that runs up and down at speed. I always love watching the adventures imaginations come up with!

Are you dinosaur mad in your household! Would you get the world reknown Tyrannosaurus rex, or the slightly larger and more agile Gigantosaurus ? We have the perfect gift for any dinosaur mad kids to make Christmas roarsome. @kelseydemers shared this beautiful moment with us, it looks like the choice was both! . . . . . . . . #animalkingdoms #schleich #prehistoric #dinosaurkid #jurassicpark #jurassicworld #dinotoys #trex #gigantosaurus #tyrannosaurusrex #kidsactivities #roarsome #christmasgifts #aucklandlife #aucklandmum #familyowned #toystore #muminbiz #nzmums #dinovember #childhoodmagic #childledlearning #girlsroom #mumofboys #mumofgirls

When we decided to name our little business Animal Kingdoms, we included Kingdoms as a way to incorporate mystical creatures and lands far far away! So while Animal Kingdoms is most well known for our huge range of animals, we also have some amazing fantasy creatures, knights and more! For example this Schleich Eldrador set, including the chilly ice monster battling the lava wolf for the super weapon! The only limit is your imagination while you create your own mystical kingdom! . . . . . . .

At only $12.50 nzd, today we are featuring the great Bowhead whale, from the CollectA Sea life range! CollectA definitely has the largest range of sea life and they are very impressive! Pictured is the beautiful CollectA Bowhead whale, which is also amazing value at only $12.50 !!!! Great for water play, sand play, and everyday play! Bowheads are one of the longest living mammals on the planet. One individual caught of the coast of Alaska in 2007 was found to have a harpoon point embedded in it that dated back to 1880, suggesting that it was at least 130 years old. Experts believe the oldest Bowhead could be as old as 200!

Looking for some festive fun! This winter wonderland was created by the awesome Sarah and her son @2little_lims This only took 15 minutes to set up, using Papo Deer (in stock now!), nature found from the garden and a mixture of bicarb soda and desiccated coconut for the snow. Such a fun way to recreate a winter woodland wonderland! . . . . . . . . #animalkingdoms #papofigurines #schleich #animalfigures #collecta #smallworld #sensoryplay #sensorytray #smallworldforkids #bambi #christmastoys #christmascrafts #christmasdecor #woodland #snowkids #deer #imaginativeplay #learningthroughplay #toddleractivities #kidsactivities #nzkids #nzmum #nzsmallbusiness #aucklandmum #familyowned #toystore

Still have some Christmas shopping to do? We have you covered! Our cut off date for Christmas 2019 orders is not until Friday 20th of December at midday. Due to the busy time of year, we recommend getting your orders in well before this date to ensure the items you want are not sold out and you have plenty of delivery time. (Animal Kingdoms ships everything out same day when possible or next working day via courier) Pick up is available in Laingholm, Auckland by arrangement (Please email us on Sales@animalkingdoms.co.nz or call 0277 495 488 to arrange a time) Every year we have people call us desperately looking for a set that has sold out nationwide, it can be hard to predict which sets will be the biggest sellers, so we highly recommend ordering early to avoid disappointment. All the Schleich in NZ comes from an international supplier, so getting new stock in close to Christmas is not possible due to shipping times and customs clearance. #animalkingdoms #schleich #collecta #animalfigures #animaltoys #nzchristmas #nzmums #kiwikids #aucklandmum #toystore #toyideas #supportsmallbusiness #familyowned #nzsmallbusiness #christmasgifts #Christmas
