Schleich - Holiday Gift Guide Review and Giveaway


Some time ago I did a review and giveaway for Schleich with their Wild Life action figures. Me and the kids also attended a Schleich product showcase party in the summer, hosted by my sister. Since being introduced to Schleich, I haven't seen finer or more intricate details on figures anywhere else.

Schleich figurines first came to life in the 1950's and were started with comic figurines. The design of their products are as realistic and naturalistic as possible. I can say that is true with every figurine I've personally seen from this company. The figures are not made up of some cheap plastic. They are made to last through years of play or display.



Schleich is celebrating their 75th anniversary. To celebrate, they are offering an exclusive figure free with the purchase of their Airplane. When you purchase the Airplane, a voucher is included to redeem online for the free exclusive figure. To also celebrate their 75th anniversary, Schleich has online games where you can register and play the games for the chance to win 1 of 75 prizes.



Once my son, Logan, found out about Schleich and all their action figures he was practically begging me for The World of Knights. Its collection features knights in action, along with dragons, castles, and other accessories to complete the set.




Schleich was kind enough to send four of The World of Knights figures to my son. Talk about beyond the moon excited! I can't tell you how many times he's erected his own playsets to stage battles between the knights. The action figures aren't jointed and don't move, but the detail is non-comparable to most others I've seen. Of course Logan now wants more figures and accessories to add to his knights collection. I've seen Schleich sold at our local Farm & Home Supply. Before Christmas, I'm going to go out there to purchase more if they are still available.



Win It!
One person will win two figures from The World of Knights collection (to be chosen by sponsor).

You know what's crazy I did that search for places that carry their products and they didn't even mention Target, and that's where we buy them at. Anyway, I did a review on Amazon:it's under eudyxtreme (my maiden name)
