Toys & Learning was born in 2007, in the heart of beautiful Norfolk. We started life as an educational toy shop, selling products that were geared towards teaching and learning. Over time, however, our youngest customers taught us a lesson of their own: the toys that provide the best learning experiences are always the ones that were designed, first and foremost, for fun and enjoyment!
Hence our turnaround: we now specialise in products by Schleich and Papo, two of the world’s most famous model makers. Working closely with these companies allows us to provide
a) brilliant customer service and
b) major savings – which we do our very best to pass on to our customers, with some of the lowest prices in the UK. Two decades on, we’re one of the country’s leading Schleich and Papo suppliers. But we still have a local-toy-store ethos – a passion for great products, from experts you can trust.
. . . and never stop blowing bubbles
We love Schleich and Papo because they’re brilliant at encouraging children to engage with the wider world by freeing their imaginations. This picture encapsulates that rather nicely! We’ve been using it on our website for years. We keep it as a reminder that we’re about helping happy children to widen their horizons.
What’s so special about Schleich?
If you’ve ever bought a Schleich toy before, you probably know the answer to this already. If not, you’re in for a genuine treat. Schleich models – which were created in Germany in 1935 – are famous for their realism and almost forensic attention to detail. This is partly down to how they’re developed in the design studio, with intricate prototypes (initially made from wax) drawn from photographs of real-life people and creatures. But it also has a lot to do with the finishing. Though millions of models are sold around the world, every single one is hand painted by a human being before it heads for the shop shelves. It can take up to eight weeks to bring a new design from concept to modelling. The result, though, is something that feels just right. In an era where so many companies cut corners to hike profits, Schleich toys feel like something from another age.
Thank you for your prompt and efficient service. Parcel arrived yesterday. Wishing you a merry Christmas and all the best for next year!
Thank you for your prompt reply to my enquiry and subsequent order. I will certainly shop with you again. Happy Christmas to all
Hi just a quick email to let you know I have received my parcel and I'm over the moon . Thankyou for your help and prompt responses to my concerns and emails. Much appreciated.
I am so sorry to have troubled you! When I saw the Schleich box with the wrong label on it I did not want to open it as it was going to be sent back. I didn't realise that there was another Schleich box inside with the correct item present. Everything is fine and your service has been extremely good!
Just received my order of Schleich items. So thrilled with them. Delivery was really quick and the order was packed beautifully. Definitely recommend this first class shop. Will be buying from them again. Thank you
Hi, I wanted to say that I’m a huge fan of your Papo products especially my daughter. We’ve been a long time buyer and can’t imagine buying anything else. I know a lot of people probably email to complain and it can be tough responding to those, so I thought I’d email something positive. You’re doing great work and it’s appreciated in our family home and I wanted to say thanks.Thank you and I hope you have a great day!
Thank you very much for delivering my order of a Schleich horse with Hannah so promptly .I had been sent an incomplete package from another provider on line and they were not able to replace it. Now my granddaughter will not be disappointed when she opens her stocking .You have gained another customer ! Happy Christmas
Good afternoon Susan
I spoke to Ray earlier about adding to an order and combining the postage however I no longer need the additional item so the order is complete.
Please thank Ray for his kind assistance. Lovely company to deal with!
Kind regards & best wishes for the festive season ahead!
The parcel arrived today, and the animals are superb. Thank you so much.
I ordered the Ice Dragon on Friday and was delighted to receive it today Tuesday. This is excellent service and as this is a gift for my Grandson who collects these Eldradors and its been very difficult finding this one it's even more special .
Thanks again Vivien
Many thanks. I was very impressed with your prompt delivery of my order and I will certainly be ordering something else to replace this item.
Just wanted to drop a line to say thank you for sorting my order so quickly, brilliant customer service.
I have just received my order thank you so much for sending it so fast. I have somehow managed to order 2 of the flower Pegasus figures by mistake.
Thank you for sorting this out. I’m very excited about these animals, a new one on me, and look forward to seeing my grandtwins faces. There’s also a couple of Christmas presents in there for my granddaughters...think you can guess which ones!
Thankyou for your prompt reply. I am sure I will purchase other things from your company in the future.
Thanks for letting me know. You have a great business and will continue to use!
Susan, Christian - thanks very much for your prompt service. Much appreciated. The replacement horse arrived today, causing great excitement and a line-up of horses! (The white ones joining a couple of others my grandson has - he plays with them constantly!).
Many thanks for your email and more importantly, I value your service as we have purchased many things in the past with an outstanding customer service.
Thank you for your support leading up to Christmas, my daughter was so thrilled with her Schleich jungle sets and animals.
As we trust the quality and care previously received we will definitely order from yourselves again.
Hi just wanted to send you some customer feedback. Our second order from you is due to be delivered today and can't believe how quick it is arriving at us even with the new year holiday. Your prices are so reasonable compared to local toy shops too! We will definitely be ordering again soon to complete our daughter's schleich horse club!
Many thanks for this, my girls love all the schleich and I have done a few purchases over the year and have been so impressed by the simplicity of your site and how fast everything arrives.
Many thanks and a happy Christmas

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for our most recent order. Delivery was super quick and everything arrived in perfect condition. We have so many Schleich’s and I’m so happy I found your company.
I just wanted to thank you for your speedy delivery of the product I ordered. I had first ordered this item from a very large and well known online shopping service, days before. They let me down and couldn't deliver it until August. This prompted me to search and find Toys and Learning.
You were able to deliver Fairy Feya Pegasus Unicorn two days before my daughters 7th birthday. Not only that but you have packaged the item with great care, included a catalogue and kept me updated with each step of the delivery. Fantastic, and excellent service!
I just spoke with you on the phone, regarding leaving a review .
I would just like to say, what an amazing service you provide. Your website is straight forward and easy to use. The prices of the items are very reasonable, compared to many other distributors.
Very quick delivery , I was very impressed how quickly the items arrived . I will definitely be recommending you to my friends .
My daughter loves the horse Schleich range, I will be ordering from you all the time now.
Thank you again
I just wanted to say thank you for my delivery today. It was packaged with such care, all of the characters arrived in pristine condition.
Thank you again
Just wanted to say thank you for the Delivery of our recent order, excellent service. Due to including a Schleich catalogue in the order my son is obsessed with animals and dinosaurs and has carried that catalogue around with him ever since! We are now looking to order a few of the Dino sets and animals shortly.
I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for fulfilling my recent orders. I realise businesses are currently facing extra challenges. Thanks to you I managed to give my daughter every one of her birthday wishes (she has a schleich addiction) and make her day.
Your prices are unbeaten and delivery is a very reliable next day delivery and I am very grateful you were open for business.
Thank you very much and kind regards
