Disclosure: This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Schleich. I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.
As Easter quickly approaches, I see many people heading to their local shops trying to grab their plastic eggs that they’ll soon fill with candy for their kids to search for on Easter Sunday. I’m here to tell you that there’s a better way to fill your kid’s Easter Baskets this year and that’s with Schleich!
Schleich (Pronounced Shh-Like) was founded in 1935 and has been bringing figurines to life since the 1950’s. In the 1980’s, Schleich added animal figurines to their famous figurine line including the Smurfs, Snoopy, and the Muppet Show. Schleich animal play worlds span from the lost time of the dinosaurs to domestic and wild animals of the present day. To Facilitate this review, we were sent the Farm World and Farm Life sets which feature amazingly realistic and naturalistic animals on a smaller than life scale.
Gabby Loves to hunt for hidden eggs, so I thought why not open up these fun packs and have her hunt for some of the Animals and foods that I’ve hidden within each egg? She’s only 4 so I thought hiding them would take her forever to find, but she LOVED the mystery especially since she knew what she was searching for. It was sort of like an Easter Scavenger hunt except you won’t know what you’ve found until you open the eggs.
If it were up to Gabby, we’d be at the Zoo each and every day. She gets really excited when she gets to play with any animal figurines and I applaud Schleich for all the details they put into such Tiny things. My favorites from the two sets we received have got to be the Baby Chicks from Farm World and the bunnies in the hollow tree from the Farm Life set. We had lots of fun with these Schleich play sets, they definitely made our Baskets fun!
Other Schleich play worlds now include the Wild West and the fantasy realms of medieval knights and elves. As with the ones we received, Schleich animal play worlds are a true reflection of nature on a smaller scale and are as realistic and naturalistic as possible!
