Look up look up!!
You can hear the dramatic music start to play in your head, you can feel what is about to happen, please Zebra stop drinking, you are in danger!
At least this is the story we heard from our grandchildren as they produced a watering hole made from the lid of an empty ice-cream tub in the over grown grass. These Schleich figurines are brilliant educational toys, hand painted, so each one is distinctive and unique, and are so strong they can outlast any scene your children’s imagination demands they play a part in. Where will your wild animals wonder?
We managed to see the long awaited Smurfs sequel over the summer holidays and were pleased to see the introduction of a couple of mischievous Smurf-like characters called the Naughties.
The evil wizard Gargamel continues to try and find the all-powerful magical Smurf-essence and kidnaps Smurfette to Paris.
There, many a chase scene happens and our particular favourite is the one in the sweets store, priceless!
Do you have a favourite?
We can help you and your children re-create some of these scenes and adventures with all the characters (and a few old favourites) which we just have to bring to you at a Special Price.
Here we are showing the Blue & Yellow Macaw from the wild animals, all are pretty impressive but some of the immediately most impressive and popular are the revamped Hippopotamus with huge wide jaws, the aggressive Grizzly, and the sleek Black Panther. With the horses Schleich are adding plaited manes to a few more models, see the fell pony and shire but the ones that take the biscuit are the appaloosas – to the uninitiated it looks like icing sugar on the hind quarters – to the initiated a fanatsic model horse.
So what is it about Schleich.
We would expect a significant rise of Schleich sales in 2011 compared with 2010 – simply because we have widened the range we stock. In 2010 we stocked around 75% of the range – now we stock 100% – sales however are 5 times 2010 and July is double June – we are very pleased.
Yes we have improved our presentation – yes we have improved our advertising – but most of this change has to be down to the quality of the Schleich models themselves.
Each scenery pack comes with one element that is only available within the scenery pack – thus making it collectable in its own right.
More importantly these scenery packs are one of the easiest ways to buy a present for a child and set them up with a whole new interest.
We have included images of each of the six scenery packs below.
The suggested retail price of £12.50 makes them really good value – at Toys & Learning they are just £9.99 giving a saving of £2.51
