Inspired by HyenaSean's Hyena collection post.. here are my Meerkats! Not a fancy setup or anything...I just put them together for a collection photo.

I've been collecting them since 2008, I believe. However, in 2009, I began collecting them more seriously.

These are unique figures, no doubles. Oops, spiderweb. Haha!

Here they are, without the giant Meerkat. :)

And companies are as follow:

1. ??? Need Identification
2. Safari LTD.
3. Blip Toys
4. Schleich
5. Bullyland
6. Animal Planet - Meerkat Manor Playset
7. Imaginext Jungle - Fisher-Price
8. Littlest Pet Shop - Hasbro
9. Jungle in my Pocket - Jakks
Bottom Row: ??? Needs Identification - tags show no company


Here's a photo with duplicates... :)

I don't think this is enough, do you?

I also have two statues I couldn't fit into the picture

And inside the tin and pictured in the figure shot is this little guy!

I have more meerkat things, including Plush, books, flat items...but since this is a figurine forum, I felt I'd only show these. :)

I'm going to be ordering some meerkats online soon, from various companies. Can't wait to add more meerkats to my mob!

Wonderful collection! I take it that meerkats are your favourite animal. I really like the meerkat in the bottom row wearing the suit jacket!

Thank you, everyone! It's nice to finally share my collection :smile:

I can't believe I forgot to photograph my Papo Meerkats... I'm ashamed, since they're among the most gorgeous in my collection.

(It knocked my other meerkats over..:frown: )

Luvsanimals, the Meerkat in the suit is named Justin. :biggrin: after my favorite singer, Justin Furstenfeld, who seems to have Meerkat Eyes - and often wears a suit.

I have to say Meerkat that Justin is very cute. I am talking about the meerkat not Justin Furstenfeld. Although your singer does have pretty meerkat eyes. Lol!

Definitely get the Papo figures, they're beautiful.

And thank you! ^_^ Justin has such charm because of his suit.

Thanks Ken! I ordered one, it should arrive in the mail any day now =)


I got 2 packages in the mail today. :D

The first one is from http://www.christianbook.com/. It's from a series called Baobab Blast VBS.

Such a sweet little Meerkat! He's got the biggest smile ever. The site says his name is Sam. He came with a few buddies, as well. :)

Awwww!


The next was a tiny box from T.G.F. Toys (http://tgftoys.com)

Four new Meerkats, made by CollectA! They look so much better in person than the T.G.F. Toys Website depicts. I love the walking meerkats pose, I've never seen a walking meerkat figurine before. =)

Here they are next to a meerkat from Schleich. They're quite large!
