Schleich is a company that specializes in making toy figurines and was founded in 1935. Originally, they made miniature versions of the Smurfs (still available), Snoopy,and other characters. They added animals to line of products in the 1980s and have recently added other themed figurines like knights, wild west, and elves.
The philosophy behind Schleich is also admirable as well:
"The design of our products is as realistic and naturalistic as possible. This enables children to experience the large variety of nature - from domestic animals on a farm to wild animals in the jungle.
When deciding on licensing products such as comic figurines we pay careful attention to their character and the message they carry. Educational aspects play a more important part than possible sales potential."
Most of the Schliech figures cost between $3 and $9. Check out their site for local and online distributors. And don't forget about the TOS Crew blog...you'll find other reviews of Schleich products there.Pin It Now!
