Animal figurines are figurines that represent animals, either as toys or collectibles. They are often made of plastic.

Historically, animal figurines were made of lead, and were made by several manufacturers, including Britains Limited.[1] Companies that manufacture realistic models include Schleich and Bullyland.[2]

K. Narayanan is the Limca Book of Records (an Indian record book) holder for the largest collection of miniature animal replicas, numbering 1,773 as of June 12, 2011.[3]

Animal figurines are also created from crystal glass.[4][5]
