My kids are on their last day of Spring Break. They spent most of it with their dad but now are home with one more day to go. Unfortunately, I have to work and, 10 days in, the kids are ‘bored’. It is time to pull out the big guns to get their imagination souring and them playing outside in the beautiful sunshine! Enter Schleich and their wide range of Wild Animal toys that prompt fun and play all day long!
These wonderful and fun figurines are perfect for little hands and big imaginations. They are realistic, unbreakable (trust me, my kids have tried!), and beautiful too. My girls were instantly enthralled playing zoo, tallest to shortest and safari. They laughed and played while I watched them enjoy everything from a rooster to a giraffe, which they set up to smell a flower.
Founded over 80 years ago, Schleich is one of Germany’s largest toy manufacturers and a leading international provider of realistic and hand-painted playsets and toy figurines. The Wild Life Starter Set and Farm World, which are the ones we got, are perfect examples. Farm World and Wild Life Starter Sets (sold separately) are composed of classic animals little ones can recognize (i.e. cow, sheep, lion and elephant.) This is the perfect introduction to the world of farm and wild life animals. They are for ages 3+ and retail for about $19.99 each.
As the kids played outside, letting these cute and realistic looking animals play in the jungle of the yard, I thought how wonderful these would have been when they were younger too. You can play all kids of games with them like: name that animal, where does this animal live and so much more. We adults can use our imagination to prompt our kids into playing using theirs!
With the Easter Bunny upon us, these adorable figurines are the perfect surprise addition to a spring Easter basket. They encourage creative and imaginative play, as well as offering an alternative to filling the basket with sweets. (Who needs Peeps when you can enjoy playing with a ‘real’ toy animal?) Instead of sending the kids on an Easter egg hunt for – well, Easter eggs – get creative (and
educational) with a fun search for all kinds of Schleich miniature animals. How fun would that be?
You can get Schleich’s realistic figurines at any major retailer!
Would your children love these?
