Play Vision established a relationship with National Geographic and briefly produced several series of Prehistoric Mammals, Dinosaurs and Prehistoric reptiles and Amphibians. First there was the small dinosaurs, then a Habitat Earth series the final dinosaur series was associated with the American Natural History Museum.  The was also a series of large prehistoric mammals and small prehistoric mammals.  More interesting was the selection of small prehistoric marine reptiles and another of prehistoric amphibians.  Many figures were drawn from the illustrations in Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures. Only the small dinosaur series is currently known to be in production others are becoming very collectible.
