Schleich - Now Available At George At Asda - Review



Schleich is a brand that takes me back to my childhood and one which leaves me with the warm fuzzies. I remember being in awe of their figures every time I visited a museum, as that's where they were commonly stocked, in my area, when I was a child. I probably spent more time admiring all the different Schleich figurines than actually enjoying my time at the museum! I'd make a mental note of all the figures I wanted, but unfortunately, I never got any!

As you can imagine, I was delighted when I heard the news that Schleich is now being stocked at George at Asda, making them easier to buy for families like you and I. I was also very happy to go ahead with a review of some of the figures that are available, and couldn't wait to see if the kids loved them just as much as I did as a child.



We were sent two products for the purpose of this review, the first being the Schleich Farm World Starter Set. Included in this pack are four farmyard animal figures, a cow, a sheep, a donkey, and a cockerel. All four figures are hand paints and incredibly lifelike. They are all made to scale which makes play so realistic. We all have a favourite figure when it comes to this set, mine being the small donkey, Noah's being the cow, whereas Ava loves the sheep. The set retails at £14.97, which I think is a fair price for the quality and attention to detail. Both Noah and Ava have been playing with them none stop since they arrived last week, which is great to see.



Next, we have the Schleich T-Rex and wow, what a showstopper he is! He is quite a large figure, with all the attributes a ferocious T-Rex should have. As always, the attention to detail is out of this world, even down to how he feels to touch. The movable jaw is a nice added touch, meaning that Mr. T-Rex can gobble up all the small farm animals and ROAR! Prior to this, Noah had never shown an interest in dinosaurs, unlike most of his peers. Ever since receiving the Schleich T-Rex it's all he's been talking about, he wants to learn about them all. The T-Rex figuring retails at £15.97, and is suitable for children 3 years and onwards.


Having such realistic figurines is great for imaginative play and for using as a learning resource too. There are more Schleich figures and sets available at George, including the Wildlife, Bayala sets and many more. Noah has already asked for two more dinosaurs for Christmas and I have a feeling that we will have to collect them all.

- We were sent these products for the purpose of this review, however, all opinions are my own.
