I’ve always loved animal figurines.  When I was a kid I played with them constantly, and when I grew older I enjoyed setting up animal scenes on any surface I could find.  But I never had anything as nicely made and detailed as Schleich‘s figurines!  These animals are perfect for imaginative play, and also for teaching different types of animals to your kids, especially since they carry a variety of different animal species and even different subspecies such as the Indian and African elephants.  They also have male, female, and young animals – all accurately portrayed.

But Schleich doesn’t only specialize in animals in the real world.  They also carry buildings, vehicles, plants and trees, people, and everything else you’ll need to create an elaborate scene to play in, along with knights and dragons, elves, dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals, and unicorns and pegasi.  Their catalog is really a delight to look through.

Our Review

Thanks to Schleich, we were able to receive a set of figurines to review including various horses and a unicorn and pegasus (the two shown above) from their fantasy Bayala line.

As you can see, they’re just as beautiful in real life as they are in the catalog and on the website.  They are also intricately detailed, including textured fur, muscle tone, and even their faces are completely realistic with vein lines!  Some of the horses have shoes, and – accurately – the foals and wild horses don’t.

The fantasy line is just as beautiful.  The unicorn and pegasus I received both have special details of their own.  The pegasus has glittery, feathery wings and the unicorn a floral painting down it’s flank and intelligent eyes.

Product Safety and Quality: Schleich makes product safety a priority and expects parents to gift these to their children to play with, so all materials are top quality and comply 100% with safety standards.

When it comes to toys, parents and educators demand the best quality and the highest level of product safety. These are our top priorities which we stick to one hundred percent – no compromises. Because children are our future. The primary duty of our company is to support you in every way we can and protect you from harm. This is why we check the design, material and safety of our toys with the greatest care.

Final Thoughts: I couldn’t be happier with both the quality and selection of animals available at Schleich.  Each animal is unique and very well-made, making them toys that will last from early childhood to … well, for as long as you want them to.  I recommend them highly!
