Instantly recognizable, sturdy toys worthy of packing up for the next generation, the Schleich brand encourages imaginative play (no batteries required)
Kids have always found time and/or excuses to horse around. With the Schleich® Horse Club Lakeside Country House and Stable, horseplay has been turned into an educational adventure. Mr. Kramer’s Trakehner (a breed of horse) and Hannah’s Quarter Horse are stabled next to the historic lakeside country house, which has been the home of the Kramers for many generations. There’s always a hot pot of tea or a nice soup waiting in the kitchen. The stairs lead to the first floor where Hannah and Mia share a beautiful room.
The house and stable have lots of fun functions and moveable parts. Stairs can be moved, and there’s a foldable table, a tiltable sunshade, moveable doors and interactive accessories. Plus, the horses can be rinsed off with the hose. This toy set is suitable for children aged 5 to 12.
This is just one set that shows why Schleich® is a leading manufacturer of animal characters and playsets, both of which let kids’ imaginations run wild. If the children in your life gravitate towards more exotic animals, the Alpaca Set from Schleich® WILD LIFE is another option.
The calm and friendly animals featured in the Alpaca Set come from the South American Andes, where they are bred for their soft, warm wool (perfect for those chilly days or evenings). This set is suitable for children ages 3 to 8.
Does your child want to play at being a farmer, selling their harvests to family, friends and the public?
The Sunny Day Mobile Farm Stand set from Schleich® Farm World has everything a farmer needs to sell fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs and milk. The set comes with Schleich characters, as well as accessories. This set is suitable for children ages 3 to 8.
Are you a dog-loving family, but maybe not quite ready for the real thing? The super-realistic four-piece Schleich Shiba Inu Playset that makes an ideal gift for the little dog lover in your life who might be a bit too young for that real pup just yet. This set is suitable for children ages 3+.
Widely known as the creator of some of the most detailed dinosaur figurines on the market, Schleich has produced every prehistoric reptile you can think of. Whether your child prefers to explore a Jurassic world, or the fantasy world of fairies, Schleich can help transport them into one of imagination with limitless possibilities for fun play.
