Today I’m going to share my current top 10 favorite figurines from Ostheimer. Now I say animals since that is what they are known for but they also offer a selection of wooden people, trees, pieces of nature, and building structures.
At this time these are the top 10 figures I’m truly enjoying – and you can tell since I was using them in my photoshoot for J’s Rainbows to promote the new Ocamora & Gluckskafer line in the shop.
Mo is my prized possession. He’s so cheeky and cute. I was waiting for a while for him to come back in stock, so the moment it happened I was quick to fill up my cart and check out. Couldn’t risk losing him.
This was a surprise for me. I was searching for a lamb for a while – but I originally thought this was ugly when I saw it online and in store. Now that I own it, I really appreciate how simple and beautiful it is. Also I want to stress that it’s the lamb that we love – not the sheep.
These wolves are truly beautiful. I think that are one of the most beautiful figurines Ostheimer makes. But for some reason Mo & the lamb has a special place in my heart. I personally would buy a 2nd set of these two if I could get my hands on them.
He’s a simple dog, but a cutie. I love how short and stumpy he is. Also photographs nicely.
This giraffe is another masterpiece. It’s simple yet so rich in color. I feel like this one of those pieces that make your collection stands out. Also, it’s a criticial animal in your safari collection.
I would love to see more diversity in the Ostheimer line. They recently came out with a dark skin girl that I would love to add – the mom and daugther was quite well done. I love how simple this girl is with her pale pink dress. Although J adores Heidi, the daugther is so simple and sweet.
When starting our collection I only wanted animals. After a while I came to appreciate these wooden people. I would love to see more diversity in their line and an expansion of their ostheimer family since they look like everyday people.
Another unlikely one. I couldn’t decide whether I liked this one when I looked at it online. But after seeing it, I love the rough edges and the way the hair is painted.
What do you think of this list? What are your favorite animals?
