I had sent Heather the set info and she has it up at PlaymoDB http://www.playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=4081
My recommendation would be to order the unique jeep parts from German DS  through a friend in Germany and then either convert a common safari jeep or get the rest of the parts from DS Canada.

Is this set no longer available then? Sorry, I'm out of date with things. When did it come out?

It was an exclusive to a German store chain last fall. The box is pretty big too, so finding one in Europe and getting it shipped could be costly.
It's a great jeep so I hope it shows up again in a regular set or a Target one at least.

Guess I'll have to follow your plan then with Euro DS and have someone ship the parts to me. That or eBay the thing. I just really need the Jeep and immediately what goes with it. The rest is not that important to me.

Thanks Tim

Tim, do you have any idea if this set is still available? Or at least the baby zebra and the jeep?  Is there no chance of getting these through US DS? I really need some baby zebras.

Thanks, Anne

At this point there is zero chance of getting them through US DS. It was only released in Germany, so they never would have sent any parts over here. If you have a German contact they may be able to still order them from German DS. I strongly suspect that the baby zebra will show up in either this years or next years German add-ons catalog. Animal families in the add-ons sell well. We will know about this year's German add-on catalog some time in the next 6 weeks or so.

Thanks Tim. I placed my very first parts order yesterday, and did request that baby zebra but as you said, not available. Can't wait for the new German add ons catalog, I'll be watching for it!
