Random Giveaway – Schleich Wild Animals ($25)

Schleich wild animal collectionTHE PRIZE

One reader will win a collection of animals (minimum $25) from Schleich’s wild animal figure collection!

MY REVIEW

In a world of singing, beeping, and largely annoying technological toys, I really appreciate simple, quality toys that require not batteries but IMAGINATION!

Schleich is the maker of a wide range of high quality, realistic animal and other figures that bring kids back to playtime basics – creativity and imagination.

airplaneIn celebration of Schleich’s 75th anniversary in September, a new product has hit the shelves – a fantastic zebra striped airplane, complete with a pilot, cockpit doors, freight bay, engine compartment, moving propeller, and more. It’s modeled after traditional fixed wing prop-planes commonly seen in the widest regions of Africa, the Australian Outback, the plains of Argentina, and now our house!

If you purchase an airplane, you’ll also get a FREE VOUCHER for an exclusive zebra-striped figureā€”a pig, giraffe, penguin or kangaroo (These 75th Anniversary figurines will not be available at retail.)

Schleich sent us an airplane to review and Elliot hasn’t put it down since it arrived in the mail. That airplane has transported every toy in our house that will fit, and he’s put at least several hundred miles on it in less than a week! Christmas is coming soon, and I’m pretty sure this airplane will be a hit for boys and girls of all ages (and it’s completely silent which will be a hit with everyone else…).

We also received the Indian elephant and calf which are two of Elliot’s favorite animals. They’re big and solid and just so nice to hold I think! These are not chintzy animals, Schleich only makes superb figures that have so much detail and realistic coloring – the mama elephant has wrinkles in all the right places, dirty toenails, and adorable folded ears. And for the quality, they’re definitely reasonably priced at an average of about $5 each.

Congratulations to Schleich for still going strong at 75 and THANK YOU for sponsoring this giveaway.

My daughter E’llee and I both absolutely love Schleich. I think the new plane is fabulous and probably will be a Christmas present. One of our favorite animals is the Okapi. She had one from our trip to the San Diego Zoo. Unfortunately it is lost and not one easily found in the normal venues.
