There are a lot of great web sites where you can find the scale, for here it's mainly 1/6th sized items such as Monkey Depot, they specialize in military type toys but you can find everything from articulated Asmus horses to jeeps to a suit. Be sure to check out Integrity Toys web site for all things Fashion Royalty related. Seriously the best made fashions for the Ladies are on this site.
