Schleich Wild Life Animals Review and Giveaway

Without fail, every time the kids go to Target with me my daughter asks for a Schleich animal.   My kids have always loved playing with animal figurines, from horses to reptiles to dinosaurs and everything in between.  My closest estimate is that together they have over 100.  I can't even begin to describe their level of excitement when a box of Schleich animals were delivered to our house.

Schleich figurines are hand painted so each one is distinctive and unique.  The attention to detail is simply amazing.  Each one looks "real" and "alive!"

These aren't your typical animal figurines that are a dime a dozen.   Schleich figurines are durable, strong and made to last!

Featured in the 2011 Schleich Animal Families Wild Life collection are:


  • Water Buffalo Calf – $4.99
  • Water Buffalo – $7.49
  • Kudu Antelope – $7.49
  • Kudu Calf – $2.99
  • Artic Fox – $2.99
  • Artic Fox Kit – $2.99

Schleich is celebrating 75 years! To help celebrate this amazing milestone, they have released an incredible coffee table book called “Anywhere’s a Playground: Schleich 75th Anniversary” by Paul Kraut.  The book is amazing and takes you through the entire Schleich journey!  You'll be amazed at how much work goes into each of their wonderful figurines.


Schleich brings the world of nature, animals, history and fantasy into the hands of our children.   Their figurines are sure to spark the creativity and imagination in every child that touches them.  I know that my children play with theirs for hours and their journey is always fun, new and exciting.  The possibilities of play-time are endless.





WIN IT:

 ONE lucky Being Frugal and Making it Work reader is going to receive the 2011 Schleich Animal Families Wild Life collection and the “Anywhere’s a Playground: Schleich 75th Anniversary” coffee table book.  ($50 value)

Mandatory Entry:

Visit Schleich and tell me which figurine is your favorite.

LOVE the Smurf characters. It's a blast from the past. Gutsy is really cute but I don't remember him from back in the day. That's not saying much though, I don't remember what I had for breakfast this AM. lOL. And you gotta love Grouchy.

If I had to choose a favorite it would be the smurfs from back when I was a kid. For an animal character I would choose the elk. Rita Spratlen
