Most people’s favorite memories of Summer include time spent at the beach. Going to the beach is also a hands on learning experience. One way to enhance this enjoyable learning experience along with recreating favorite memories is with beach them animal toy miniatures. The top 5 animal toy miniature to reminders of Summer at the Beach are listed and the most popular animal toy miniatures are as follows.

  1. Dolphin Toy Miniatures – Dolphins are everyone’s favorite animal at the beach. Out of reach but not out of sight Dolphins represent the playful beauty of going to the beach as they make the ocean come to life with their frolicking in the wave as a family pod group. The Dolphin Toy Miniatures are an excellent way to remind yourself of wonderful times at the beach.
  2. Shark Toy Miniatures – When it comes to Sharks everyone wants to talk about sharks and act tough regarding sharks but no one wants to be in the water in close proximity with a real shark. It is at that moment of realization when man is aware that they are not the top of the food chain in fact instead of feeling like the hunter they feel the uneasy feeling of being the hunted. Despite these realities boys especially can’t resist the allure of sharks and the best way to feed this obsession is with a variety of realistic shark toy miniatures.
  3. Pelican Bird Toy Miniatures – People today visit the beach and a now common sight is the beautiful v formations of Pelicans as they work their way up and down the beach. Because of DDT of the 60’s and 70’s the only place you could see Pelican was Southern parts of the US however with the ban of these chemicals the pelicans return has been nothing short of phenomenal. This remarkable comeback makes any trip to the beach a dazzling experience as the crystal blue Summer sky and  open ocean waters come to life with flying and diving Pelicans. For beach lovers who are fascinated by these amazing flying creatures the Pelican toy miniatures are a perfect reminder of time spent at the beach.
  4. Crab Toy Miniatures – Every trip to the beach is the ultimate combination of land water and sky. No other place on earth combines these 3 elements in such dramatic fashion. This classic grouping of land sea and air subconsciously hits a relaxing chord that makes going to the beach such a relaxing popular attraction. Beach goers, however, are land bound along with their ghost crab friends. For anyone relaxing by the beach watching crabs darting in and out of their holes while making what appears to be a sand salad becomes a popular beach spectator sport. The amazingly realistic crab toy miniatures bring that Summer at the  beach feeling into any room of any house.
  5. Jellyfish Toy Miniatures – One memory of the beach that most people do not cherish is any experience with the dreaded jellyfish. Jellyfish ruin any ocean swimming experience in a matter of seconds. For children and their mothers many hysterical moments have been experienced whenever a jellyfish sting has occurred. Only with time and in retrospect can jellyfish experiences become a family experience that can be reviewed with humor and fondness. For practical jokes and fun the orange jellyfish toy miniatures are a sore but essential part of anyone’s favorite Summer reminders of the beach.

Going to the beach during the Summer has become an annual event that for most wish would never end. Taking the beach home with you is obviously not possible but it is possible to relive many of those special memories with animal toy miniatures including the dolphins, sharks, pelicans, crabs and jellyfish listed. All the animal toy miniatures have their own special way of making one smile and of taking one away to that special relaxing spot on the beach where you watched the dolphins play in the waves, watched the pelicans overhead, watched the crabs pop in and out of their holes, while you hoped to stay far away from dangerous sharks or bothersome jellyfish. The special relaxing joys of Summer if only in your imagination most of the year. All the animal toy miniatures shown for Summer beach memory reminders are available online at Animal World.

Robert May Artist Extraordinaire for Dog Animal and Pet Illustration

Artist Ribert May in his studio If you currently have in your collection animal or pet lover theme gifts like dog breed mugs, blanket throw tapestries, flags and stationary it is a good chance you already possess Robert May artwork. Like Sandra Brue of Sandicast is to dog figurines, Robert May is to dog illustrations. Robert May continues to fuel his passion capturing the beauty of animals and specific dog breeds in art. In Robert May’s own words.

After spending approximately 15 years as a graphic artist / illustrator I decided to change direction and concentrate on fine art and animal painting in particular. My work was seen in a local gallery and I was subsequently commissioned to produce a series of dog head studies for reproduction as greeting cards, due to the success of this range both in the U.K. the U.S.A. and Europe further commissioned work followed for more breeds of dog and a variety of other animal subjects. I never tire of painting dog subjects as there is such a variation in size, colour and coat texture there is always a new challenge to take on, and although basically self taught I now feel that I can achieve consistant work of a high standard. I paint in oils and acrylics but gouache is my primary technique which allows a high degree of detail and richness of colour, these qualities make the finished works ideal for reproduction which is why a number of leading companies have made use of my artwork in connection with products including tapestries and fabrics, transfers, and various other gift lines. I now publish my own range of limited and open edition prints which ensures that I have control over the quality of the end product as well as continuing to build a library of new images and also accepting private commissions.”
bernese mountain dog blanket throw tapestry Everyone’s relationship with their pet dog is special and very unique to each specific life’s experiences.  Robert Mays artwork is special because like Sandra Brue’s Sandicast dog figurines his artwork is able to transcend that specificity of relationship and make it feel as if that picture is of your dog along with it’s unique personality. Robert May continues to create beautiful animal and dog paintings which seem to all possess a majestic lofty feeling and appear to put each animal on a pedestal of importance. Since all animal and pet owners have the same feelings as is reflected in Robert Mays paintings the artwork is timeless. In addition many of the Robert May painting not only capture the animal or pets conformation they often also include a background which lends itself to the dog breed’s historical origin. This is especially evident in the Bernese Mountain Dog Blanket Throw Tapestry artwork shown featuring the Bernese Mountain Dog the foreground and a majestic snowy  mountain range in the background. The special relationships between people and dogs and animals is as old as time itself. Fortunately their are artists like Robert May who capture this special bond in illustrations which is later licensed for animal and pet lovers to enjoy on blanket throw tapestries, pillows, mugs, stationary and other animal and pet theme gifts.

Edmontosaurus Dinosaur Toy Miniature

The new Edmontosaurus Dinosaur Toy Miniature is the latest release by Safari Toys in their growing line of realistic dinosaur replicas for education, school, business, research and creative play fun. Made of durable PVC plastic the Edmontosaurus Dinosaur Toy Miniature Replica is featured by Animal World. According to Steve Forrest at Animal World “At no other time in history have there been a better selection of realistic dinosaur toy miniatures. Every new release broadens everyone’s awareness and education of the ever increasing knowledge of recently discovered dinosaurs. Drawings are flat, whereas replicas like the Edmontosaurus dinosaur toy miniature allow the opportunity to see the animal in exciting 3 dimensions. Best of all anyone can inspect, turn, without the anxiety of damaging the Edmontosaurus dinosaur toy miniature because it is made of durable PVC.” For this reason the dinosaur toy miniatures are perfect for school education. Teachers teaching modules on dinosaurs can allow students the chance to see the differences between the herbivores and carnivores. In three dimensions it is easy to isolate the differences shape of heads, bodies, legs and tails between each specific dinosaur and how each characteristic allowed each to benefit from it’s surroundings. Carnivores with their large mouths are immediately distinguishable from the smaller mouth herbivores. In addition it appears Carnivore dinosaurs were more adept at standing on their hind legs whereas herbivore dinosaurs being grazers appear to be more adept at walking on all four legs. Whatever the reason or goal the ever  increasing line of dinosaur toys most recently represented by the new Edmontosaurus Dinosaur Toy Miniature will continue to educate students of all ages about the never ending fascinating tale of these amazing animals that roamed the earth millions of years ago.
