Schleich Animals

I’ve been reading about these Schleich lifelike animal figurines lately, but always figured they’d be super expensive and only available in an upscale toyshop selling European toys. So I was pleasantly surprised when I was cruising the crazy neon-colored, battery-operated toy aisles of Target and came across a big Schleich display that looked like it carried their full line of animals. I think they’re reasonably priced too. I bought the chimp and baby elephant for my almost 2-year old daughter, and she played with them throughout the entire day. These are great to keep in your bag to whip out for instant tabletop entertainment while waiting for the grilled cheese sandwiches to arrive, as we did out at lunch today. The detail is really quite amazing. It makes me want to give away all the cartooney looking Little People animals and load up on more of these, which are so wonderful for pretend play and learning about animals too. If you have a T-Rex-loving child, they have some great-looking dinosaurs as well.
