Schleich realistic animal figures
Schleich makes the most incredible animal figures around! The German company has been creating figures since the 1950s, and continues this tradition today with their highly realistic and detailed plastic animals.
Schleich creates a huge range of animals, from farmyard chickens & cows to prehistoric dinosaurs. Some of our most popular toys, these figures are a major hit with kids. Their durability means they can take adventure after adventure and still look great.
They are fantastic for encouraging open-ended, imaginative play. The sturdy toys also make a great addition to blocks and stacking toys. Schleich changes their collections regularly; come by and check out the new additions for 2012!
Older kids and adults have a soft spot for these creatures too. Here are a few fun projects not so little ones have done with Schleich figures:
Elizabeth Soule takes truly delightful photos with these animals to create beautifully warm and fuzzy images. See more of her work here.
House to Home posted this great idea of gluing animals to jar lids and spray painting them bright and cheery colours. What a fun way to store odds and ends!
One of our very favourite blogs, Oh Happy Day, posted this fantastic idea for party decorations for a birthday celebration.
So, no matter your age, these fun little creatures really strike a chord and bring out the play in everyone!
