Holiday GG 2010 Schleich Toys Review and Giveaway





Schleich is a new company I just discovered and I am so glad. They make action and animal figurines that help children play using their imagination.

About them
"Schleich is the home of action figures and animal figurines. Our product range spans the World of Nature with beautiful animal toys to the World of History with realistic educational toys. Our popular category of the World of Fantasy includes the well-known Smurfs as well as the quickly growing World of Elves. From over twenty breeds of horses to a dozen species of dinosaurs, Schleich understands the beauty and range in the animal kingdom."

Although some of these figures can be a bit more expensive that other toys they are definitely worth it.

These toys are top quality and being a certified teacher I really understand the importance of imaginative play. It really helps a child's mind expand and develop.



I was sent the Giganotosaurus dinosaur for Shane. He really loves this toy. When he first saw it he yelled Rawr and got very excited. I know he is going to have many hours of imaginative play with this toy.

Schleich toys would make a great gift for any kid. All kids can benefit from the imaginative play offered in these toys. I also think the smaller figures would make great stocking stuffers.

These toys are available at target, toys r us and select retailers.
