Schleich Action Figures Review

Have you ever seen the adorable, extremely detailed animal figures that just stand out from the rest on the shelf at the store? Chances are they are by Schleich. All of Schleich's figurines are modeled true-to-nature and hand painted. They are extremely detailed and very high quality. All of their products are developed with the help of parents, teachers, and children.

We received seven animals from several of their categories to review. From the Farm Life, we received a cat, boar, hen, and Haflinger foal. From Wild Life, we received lion and panda cubs. And from Pets, we received a tortoise. My children were tearing into the box the moment they arrived. My son was so impressed with them, he didn't want to take the tags off because he wanted to keep them as collector's items. He also asked immediately where he could buy more of them. My daughter on the other hand had other things in mind. She snatched them up and added them to some other farm animals we have and started playing with them.

These figures are a wonderful way to encourage creativity. They can be incorprated into many activities in your home, helping to bring nature to your children. Not only will your children fall in love with them, but you, the adult, will find yourself falling in love with them as well. They are truly nice enough to be collector's items but yet sturdy enough for rough and tough play. Whatever your purpose, you will find yourself spotting them in stores and wanting to add to your collection.

Here is a list of the different categories of figures they carry: Farm Life, Wild Life, Forest Animals, Trees and Plants, Human Figurines, Pets, Dinosaurs, Dogs, Sea Animals, Prehistoric Mammals, Replica Saurus, The Smurfs, The World of Knights, The World of Elves, and World of the American Frontier. You can look at what is included in each of these categories if you CLICK HERE.

Schleich figures are sold at Target, Toys R Us,, and your local farm stores. Don't be fooled by imitations. Make sure there is a Schleich tag identifying the real thing.
