Mandai Wildlife Group & XM Studios Launch Zoo-Inspired Figurine Collection

In celebration of World Wildlife Day, Mandai Wildlife Group and XM Studios have teamed up to launch a series of collectible figurines, featuring six beloved animals from the Singapore Zoo. Each of the animals is part of the Group’s Adopt an Animal programme and includes the African penguin, Aldabra giant tortoise, California sea lion, Malayan sun bear, pygmy hippopotamus, and the Sumatran orangutan.

As part of the official launch of this series of collectible figurines, Mandai Wildlife Group and XM Studios collaborated with media personalities, artists, and creators who stepped forward to give their time to hand-painting and creating personalised versions of the animal figurines.

Here's taking a closer look at some of animal figurines and the various media personalities, artists, and creators who painted them:

African Penguin

Painted by local host and media personality, Sonia Chew (@soniachew), she is one of the 27 artists and local media personalities engaged for this endeavour to create a one-of-a-kind hand painted piece.

Pygmy Hippopotamus

Painted by Lydia Yang (@oakandbindi), she is more popularly known by her online handle, Oak & Bindi, as an illustrator, graphic designer and creative entrepreneur. Her bold and playful style can be seen in her interpretation of the pygmy hippopotamus.

Sumatran Orangutan

Painted by Kunhua, or affectionately known as DJ Kunz, he is an illustrious media personality with MediaCorp YES 933.

The hexagonal base design allows enthusiasts to combine multiple figurines to form a diorama of the Singapore Zoo.


These one-of-a-kind pieces will be sold on Mandai Wildlife Group’s e-shops on Lazada and Shopee from 8 March 2024, and 100 per cent of the proceeds will go towards conservation projects in Singapore and the region.

The mainline figurines will retail at $39 each, and for a limited time, can be purchased at a launch price of $29.

These animal figurines will also be available in-store at the retail shops in the Mandai Wildlife Reserve and XM Studio Store.
