I was wondering what year Schleichs stopped being made in Germany, and started being made in China?

Thanks!

I think they make all the sealife in Portugal, am I right, guys ?

The question is how long they will manufacture in Germany.
Till the end of 2006 Schleich was family owned, but then it was purchased by a British compagny.
So as the wages are much lower in the Far East, the British compagny may want to move more of the production to China..

Schleich is owned by a British company now? Are you serious? This is the first I have heard of it and will also explain maybe why alot more 'Made in Germany' models can be found on the shelves of toy stores in the UK such as ELc and others...I have seen them with my own eyes.....

I never knew Schleich is now British owned.....and even though I am British I am not happy. We here tend to follow more of an American business approach and so all production to China may not be good news...I would rather it stayed as a German owned company.having seen Britains production move to China in the 90s I doubt quality will increase but maybe decrease....I know I dont sound positive but its how I feel sorry!

Yes, at least 80 % is British owned, which is the same - look here, under "History"

Thanks. I'm not very familiar with Schleich history at all. I just know that the ones I find are made in China. I'd love to get some that were actually made in Germany! I see them from time to time on Ebay.

Susanne, i don't know if are all sea animals, but a big number are.. I've 4 sea animals, and they are made in Portugal.

Schleich made toys in some countrys, like Portugal, Germany, China.. (i is just this 3 isn't it?)

Well, i just see this 3 in toys.. Are more?

Occasionally, some figures show up that are made in Tunisia. I've just got a Lipizzaner mare from my local shop which is made in Tunisia.
