Aberdeen Angus toys

Introduce the toy Aberdeen Angus breed in the home with a replica toy cow for use in the shed or build up a family.

Scottish Aberdeen Angus cattle are a beast of an animal, known for their large figure and silky black coat with only their nose standing out amongst the darkness. Toy Aberdeen Angus come in all shapes and sizes whether it's a stand-alone toy bull or family of toy Angus including a toy cow, bull and calf to complete the set.

Although, with Britains you have a useful set of 1:32 scale Angus cattle to create an instant farm scene with a bunch of toy cows. The toy brands below have one thing in common, each toy farm animal is hand painted and made from a sturdy plastic to withstand rough child's play on the farmyard.

Collecta Black Angus Bull

Collecta's very own version of the Black Angus is a real winner as the sculpture is beautifully made by a very talented person. Collecta currently only have 2 Aberdeen Angus in there range with a black and an identical red Angus bull, both set in a standing position, looking over to his left with his head facing down.

Because this figure is all on his own, he can be introduced to all types of cattle breeds but will be most welcome with cows only. The Collecta Black Angus toy bull features lots of detail on his face, belly and back, with the texture on his body feeling rough but certainly realistic. If you come up a little short on this range, you can match up this bull in the same scale as Safari's own range.

Schleich Angus Family

Unfortunately, the Schleich Angus bull (pictured) and the rest of the Aberdeen Angus family have since been discontinued and replaced with similar breeds in the Scheich Farm Life range like the Spanish Black bull. Although if it's a Scottish breed you'll looking for, take a look at Schleich Highland cattle family.

Before the loss of this marvelous model cow by Schleich, they were probably the most impressive replicas available. This model is distinguished nicely with a little red colour in the painting finish which certainly brings out the detail on the body and face. If you are lucky enough to find the Schleich Angus cattle, be sure to buy the bull, cow and calf in the whole family.

Safari Angus

Safari Angus

Safari Limited also have their own Angus family toy cattle but not as realistic as their counter-parts but made with a more playful feel. But as they are made in a similar scale to Collecta's own range, you'll have your options open when you look to expand the range and certain figures don't impress you.

The Safari Angus cow (pictured on left) is most notable from her bright pink udder and long chest. She's in a standing position looking slightly to the left. Her big hoofs will sure keep in a secure standing position with a smooth finish to the body. Safari's Aberdeen Angus is a little tricky to find on the market but sure do look out for the matching bull and calve.
