Founded in 1935 by Friedrich Schleich in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Schleich is one of the biggest toy manufacturers in Germany today and the leading international provider of realistic animal figures. The design of the figures and play worlds, the manufacturing of the production tools and also the quality and safety tests are performed in Germany to this day. Production is carried out at the company’s headquarters in Schwäbisch Gmünd as well as other production sites abroad.
We as a company have made it our task to give children an understanding of animals and their natural habitats. With our detailed, authentic and hand-painted figures, children can gain valuable knowledge about the world of animals and learn about nature in a playful manner. This has turned into six different themed worlds with over 600 lovingly designed and high-quality individual figures which are specially designed to appeal to children in their different stages of development. The many different possibilities ensure long-lasting fun.
We are proud of all our figures, but especially of their quality and safety. And for us, quality begins right at the start. Our quality guarantee also applies to the subsequent production. Each individual figure is examined and hand-painted step by step with great artistic skill. We consistently use only absolutely non-harmful raw materials and have them regularly checked and approved by independent laboratories. Even the material suppliers are continuously subjected to strict checks. This means that you buy products which meet all valid national and international requirements. These include the European Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC, DIN EN 71 and the international Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety ASTM F963-2008.
