I received an Animal Nursery and several animals from Schleich for this review, all opinions are my own.
I first heard about Schleich Toys from one of my friends and neighbors. We were talking about really durable long lasting toys, especially animals and she told me I needed to check out Schleich toys. That is where my obsession began with Schleich toys! The reason why I love these animals and their toys in general so much is how durable and sturdy they are! I couldn’t believe how strong the animals actually were! I am used to cheaper plastic animals that may or may not last. I have had some Schleich animals since Leah was 2 and they have kept up so much!
I also really love how realistic each animal or toy looks. The elephant we received actually has the creases and folds and wrinkles that an actual elephant would have. I love that I can go to any animal on the Schleich toy website and it will tell me a ton of facts about that animal.
“Elephants can consume over five hundred pounds of food per day.
Indian elephants look similar to African elephants but have shorter tusks and smaller ears. Although they do not stay in one spot for more than a few days, the habitat of this elephant varies but is often close to areas of scrub-forest. Indian elephants live in family groups that are composed of between two and ten elephants. As with the African elephants, the matriarch is in charge and ensures that all in the herd follow the social customs of the community. Experts believe that elephants have large brains. These mammals are able to imagine how others in the herd are feeling and remember information such as differentiating between individuals, recalling the experience of a drought, or knowing where the best feeding places are.” (Schleich Website)
Both of my girls absolutely love animals, they love playing Mommy and Baby and I love that several of the animal families actually have the mommies and the babies!
Schleich has so many different types of animals to choose from like african, asian, sea animals, farm animals and more! I also love the houses that they sell like the Wild Life Animal Nursery that we received. The nursery is used to teach the girls about where we can actually help animals and where baby animals can be housed! It’s a great way to show my girls that animals need help too and it takes a special person like them to work and help those cute animals! The animal nursery is perfect for any animal that needs a place to stay out in the jungle or the wild!
“In the jungle, the savannah, or your own backyard, the African animal nursery is a wonderful home for any Schleich animal in need of a place to stay. Imagine the adventures and the possibilities when it comes to rescuing animals from danger and helping them heal!” (Schleich Website)
“Competence and Experience – these two elements have been the basis of our company since we started as a supplier to the plastic industry. Friedrich Schleich founded the company in 1935. The now famous Schleich figurines first came to life in the 1950’s. At that time we started to concentrate on the development, production and marketing of comic figurines. And they are still popular and well known: The Smurfs, Snoopy, The Muppet Show characters and many many more.
Since the early 1980’s we added animal figurines to our range of products and consequently extended this area. The animal play worlds created over the years are a true reflection of nature on a smaller scale. Spanning from the lost world of the dinosaurs to domestic and wild animals of present times. Meanwhile, and starting in 2003, Knights, the Wild West theme and Elves have also been added to the popular Schleich Play Worlds.
The design of the Schleich products and the creation of the required tools are done in house, thus enabling us to control the initial vital steps of creating a new product. The production itself takes place at the company`s German headquarters and in a number of production facilities in foreign countries. Our products are marketed world wide. ” (Schleich Website)
