Spring is a season of renewal and growth. A time when every living thing is positively blooming with new life. Help your children, ages 3 and up, celebrate nature’s wonders this spring with an all-new collection of Animal Family figurines from world leader Schleich www.schleich-s.com. Perfect for inspiring imaginative play, Schleich’s figurines are hand-painted, stunningly realistic and designed to stand the test of time.
From wild life families including Water Buffalo and Kudo to more familiar farm life families such as Texas Longhorn Cattle and Pinto Horses, Schleich collections spark young imaginations as children identify with “animal babies” and play with the family groupings.
We were sent a brand new set of Schleich Farm life Animal Families to review as well as a lovely coffee-table book about the history of Schleich titled Anywhere’s a Playground: Schleich 75th Anniversary, by Paul Kraut.
My daughter loves these figurines and we’ve already started a collection for her that we began in December. Schleich figurines are extremely well made and very appealing to the eye. I even have a few of my own that I’ve grown quite partial too because of certain sentimental value and symbolism that they graciously hold.
If you check out the Schleich website and browse the figurines you’ll notice that each of them have a great description and that’s what makes these figurines more than just fun but educational too! You’ll can learn the Zoological Name, Conservation Status, and Global Home of each animal!
I’ve been enoying the Anywhere’s a Playground: Schleich 75th Anniversary book. It’s great to know how this company got started, how the whole creation process goes for these figurines, and what’s been going on with them for the last 75 years. Definitely worth the read. The full color photos are candy for the eyes and the rich history is soup for the soul. The book retails for $19.99 on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com
Prices for the figures vary. You can see Schleich’s growing collection of figures and search for your nearest local retailer on the company’s web site here. I am glad I can easily find these locally and thrilled that they are carried at my favorite hobby store. Though they also can be found at Toys R Us and Target.
One winner will receive a collection of Schleich figurines just like the ones I reviewed as well as the Anywhere’s a Playground: Schleich 75th Anniversary book.!
