Creating a figurine zoo is a fun idea, isn’t it? You can have a little group of still animals to take care of and display all of your own. You will not have to feed them, but you will need to dust them every once in a while. A figurine zoo is a great way to show your love for animals without actually having real ones.

The first step in creating a figurine zoo is determining the exact location. If you have a few shelves to work with, great. The other option is to have a table or a small area of floor space available in a corner of a room. Measure out enough space for the animals that you want to include in your figurine zoo.
The next step is to collect the figurines. You may have to shop around for a while in order to find all of the animals. The usual animals that you would find in a zoo are a lion, tiger, bear, giraffe, zebra, and elephant. These animal figurines will be the easiest to find in stores and online. You might be able to find other animals like birds, and if you can find them, the better your zoo will be. Make sure that they are all a proportionate size, or the zoo just won’t look right. You may want to look at some pictures of these animals just to be sure of their relative sizes.
Once you have all of your figurines, it is time to set up the zoo. You can add some fake grass or a little area of sand in the zoo area. You might want to put up a small tree figurine, or put up several trees and bushes. Make a separate space for each animal, so they don’t hurt each other.
Now you can put each animal in their special place. You can have them next to each other, facing one another, or facing forward. If you really want to get creative, you can add tiny people figurines looking at the animals in your zoo. Tiny human figurines will be a little bit more difficult to find, however.
Take care of your animals by dusting them regularly. Don’t let the kids play with them, figurines are easily breakable.
There you have it. That is how you can create your own figurine zoo with animal figurines.
