It's a Dogs Life!!
(Virtual Press Office) - Renowned as man’s best friend, it’s hardly surprising that Schleich’s collection of Dogs is one of its most popular ranges and a firm favourite with both children and collectors.
The assortment contains a wide variety of different breeds from around the world ensuring everyone can find the perfect companion. The most pressing decision will be whether to invest in a mischievous young puppy or a fully trained, full grown dog.
There are eight new additions to the canine family this year, with each figure a miniature replica of its larger counterpart – and as with real dogs, no two models are exactly the same. The chubby Pug family, with their faces full of character, includes a male, female and puppies, as does the Labrador family. The magnificent Great Dane family includes mum and her gorgeous giant puppy.
All dogs in Schleich’s collection are anatomically correct and intricately hand painted ensuring that they have both educational and recreational value. Children will love playing with their canine companions and in later years, proudly display their collection for everyone to see.
For more information about the entire collection, read on for detailed descriptions of each new piece…
