Schleich Animal Toys

Updated on July 24, 2014

Beautiful Schleich Animals

I recently purchased 3 Schleich animal figurines for my little boy as I'd heard a lot of other moms talk about them and I wanted to see what the fuss was all about.

I bought a dalmatian, a zebra and a giraffe and I have to say that they're beautiful - the best toy animals I've seen.

I'm not a fan of buying loads of cheap plastic toys for my child but I love the idea of starting a collection of beautiful animals that will last, be educational and played with for years. And who knows, maybe they'll even end up as precious collectable ornaments.

Schleich Animals We Own

Dalmatian

My little boy is a big fan of dogs at the moment and he immediately responded to the image of this dalmatian with a "woof, woof".

There are several other dogs available from Schleich too - including a golden retriever, German Shepherd and St. Bernard.

Zebra

Out of the three Schleich animals we currently own, the zebra is by far my favorite.

Out of all of the toys - I think this one most looks like a real animal when you look at the product image on Amazon. The detailing is just perfect down to the glossy eyes, nostrils and hooves.

Female Giraffe

Whilst I still love the giraffe I don't think it's quite as nicely detailed as the zebra - the skin is quite "flat" looking but this is really nit-picking as it's the best giraffe I've seen.

The paint has come off the face of our giraffe a little but I think that's because of overly-rough handling from my toddler.

Schleich Animals on Our Wishlist

African Elephant

I'm planning on collecting a few more animals before we make our first trip to the zoo.

What wildlife animal collection is complete without an elephant? I love the texture of this elephant's skin.

Black Rhino

Perhaps not the prettiest of animals but the rhino is of course another classic animal to have in a wildlife collection.

Tiger

Lions and tigers are must-haves and this one's a beauty.
