Breyer Corral Pals Formerly Collecta Horses – What’s Going On?

Breyer Corral Pals
There was rumor flying around that Breyer acquired the very popular Collecta Figurines company. This is partially true. Breyer (or rather Reeves, the company that owns Breyer to be exact) will be marketing part of the Collecta line under the name Corral Pals. You can see all of the Corral Pals that Breyer will be offering directly on Breyer’s website.
Breyer has the rights to Collecta’s Horse Collection,Farm Animals Collection and Cat & Dogs Collection. Breyer is discontinuing the Collecta Deluxe scale horses as they would be in direct competition with their Classics line. Breyer will only be producing the smaller scale horses that were sculpted by Deborah McDermott. Collecta or another company will continue to produce their other Collections like the Dinosaurs, Sea Life and Insects. Collecta will cease production of the Horses, Farm Animals and Cat and Dogs.
It is unknown if Breyer will continue to use the same hard rubber material that Collecta used. It’s possible that they will transition to plastic but there are no guarantees. I personally would love to see Breyer transition the horses to plastic!
We are excited to be carrying the Breyer Corral Pals Horse Collection series along with the adorable Grey Donkey that is part of the Corral Pals Farm Animals series. Our order for Corral Pals has already been placed. If there are others in the Farm Animals or Cat and Dogs series that you would be interested in purchasing, please let us know and we can order them. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have one last bit of exciting news. Our order for the 2017 Breyer Horses has been placed. Woot!
Thanks for mentioning that they’ll be discontinuing the larger line, I hadn’t known that.
Yup, grab those Deluxe scale horses while you can!
Yea I saw that I was very up set
May I ask why this upsets you?
I can’t speak for Hanna, but I agree, I am disappointed the will be dropping the larger scale line ~ there are some great molds there! I am REALLY hoping they release these in the same plastic as the Traditional Breyer line, the McDermott sculpts especially are wonderful but the rubber is not! 🙂
I too would have loved to have seen the Classics Scale Collectas continued but I understand why Breyer does not want them competing with their current Classics. From what I understand, Breyer has the rights to produce certain Collectas and if Breyer chooses to not renew their contract with Collecta, we very well may see the larger scale horses being produced again by Collecta 🙂
