Schleich figurines-TOS Homeschool Crew Review

 As a member of the Old Schoolhouse homeschool review crew,  we sometimes get to review products that are not necessarily for homeschoolers.  When I found out we were on the list for Schleich figurines, I was really excited.  These are not just your regular farm animals, each of these figurines are crafted to be the most accurate and detailed figurines that you'll probably ever have.  Everything about these figurines is accurate from the silver shoes on the horse we received to the line on the donkey's back and front legs.  My children were so excited to see the donkey at our local zoo actually had this line on it's back.  My 13 year old is a Zoologist in the making and was absolutely in love with the detail and accuracy that was shown on each animal that we received.

 If you click on the logo above, it will take you to the Schleich website where you will enter a whole new world.  From Farm animals to zoo animals, Knights to Princesses, Imaginary worlds to Imaginary beings; you will find a Schleich figurine to help nurture an imagination and broaden a horizon.  The product line is not limited to just the figures either, they also have fences, pens, trees, vehicles and buildings to help round out any playroom.   These aren't available at the online Schleich site, you'll actually find these at many local stores, Target, Hobby Lobby, and many others that you can find on their retail store finder.  I also found them available on many online toy stores.

What I love about it the line is that you can spend as little or as much as you want.  Figures range from a few dollars to as much as $150,  the larger the piece of course the higher the price.  But you could literally build an entire Medieval village or an African Veldt depending on how much you want to invest.  It really is an investment in a great product though, these toys seem pretty indestructible.  I had four kids ranging in ages from 5-15 playing with these and they have not a scratch on them, they are a great, durable product that will last a child a lifetime.

Head on over here to see what other families thought about these great toys.
