Schleich---Toys You'll Pass Down to Your Grandkids


As much as I enjoy receiving new curriculum to review...my kiddos like the toys. Who can blame them, especially when the toys are from Schleich?

We received these from Farm Life Collection: the Mustang Black Stallion (he's rearing up, though he looks like he's taking a nap in the photo---I should have my 8-year-old take these pictures for me:-), the Hen, and the Piglet (eating). And we received these from the Wild Life Collection: the Female Giraffe, , the Ostrich Chick, and the Black Bear Cub. The quality and details of these animals are awesome, truly exceptional compared to any toy animals we've had in the past...and yes, they are anatomically correct, but are very tastefully done.

And play value? My kiddos claimed ownership almost immediately, with one boy taking the stallion, the other boy taking the giraffe, and the girl taking the little ones and...no fighting, believe it or not! I thought for sure there would be arguments, but everyone was thrilled with their new animals and I have a feeling they will be hankering to add to the collection. I'm not even a little bit worried about durability...these are the kind of toys you can pass down to the next generation.

Schleich is also in the process of expanding their website to add more educational features, so be on the lookout for these changes sometime in the latter half of this year. In the meantime, be sure to check out their on-line catalog...they have over 500 different items available, far more than you'll find in any one store. Prices on the animals I received range from $2.49 to $6.49. In addition to animals, you'll also find barns, knights, fairies, and assorted other figures on the site.
