you are bound to find a Schleich figurine to meet your playtime needs. Oh, and your children's too.
Delicately detailed by hand, these realistic toy animals are a wonder to behold. I was fortunate enough to review some of the other lovely critters last year, and now our collection has grown. The beauties you see above arrived nicely packed, and ready to become a part of one of the many imaginative creations my son comes up with. All but the donkey-because that sweetie is mine. I have decided I need to get myself a miniature donkey-you know-one that is potty trained, can wipe its hooves on the rug in the entry way, and showers daily. So, since that is not possible (darn neighborhood association rules), I have commandeered that sweet thing as my "pet". But I do play nice and share him with the fam.
Now if you have children, or you yourself have a passion for playtime-why not use animals, action figures and gosh, even Smurfs to jazz up your adventures? Best yet-these are built to last, are extremely realistic and just darn adorable! There is a huge selection of creatures to choose from, and now there are even buildings, vehicles and people too.
These are a hit in our home! I am even going to use them to help with the animal sketches for our art studies. It is a lot easier to draw say-a gazelle or Okapi, when it is in front of you (and not trying to destroy the house, you or in constant motion), especially when it is accurately depicted. Not to mention-when we cover the animals of Africa-it will be a lot cheaper than packing up the family, and heading to the open plains of the Serengeti. Definitely a keeper set of toys for us.
