This 2023 Border Collie Toy Buying Guide intends to help you select the Border Collie Dog toy model that is best for you based on features and your budget. We discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the FOUR Toy Border Collie Dog figures currently available to assist your decision making so that you can purchase the best Border Collie model that is best for you.
Border Collie Dog Toy Overview:
There are currently FOUR different Border Collie Dog toys available. Three of them are very good looking models. The fourth model is not as crisp as the other models.
The playful pose of this figure makes it a winner. Instead of just standing on all fours, this figure looks like it is sneaking through the grass in a low crouch. Tail is extend as if happily moving along. Texture and paint are nice. The red neckerchief is a great detail and adds an eye-catching pop of color. Great looking model.
If you are looking for a Border Collie in the more traditional standing pose, this figure from Papo is a good option. Figure has the roughest hair texture of any of the Border Collie models. The chest hair is especially rough. Head is up and face looks happy. Good looking figure from Papo.
This is also a good looking model in the traditional standing pose. Texture is slightly smoother than on the Papo Border Collie. Face from some angles looks a little angry. More black coloring than white coloring. Overall a good looking figure from CollectA.
Compared to the other models, this figure is not as refined. Biggest issue is with the texture and the paint job. Texture is the smoothest of any of the models. The others have “rough hair” texture, this has some but is relatively smooth. The paint job is overly shiny. Shine makes the figure look plasticky. The other 3 figures provide better options.
