Hi all, i'm new to the forums, and new to the world of Schleich.

I picked up a few from the carboot today and wanted to share.
The bear and lioness cost 20p each, and the dinosaurs were 50p. :)

Thank you Susanne, it seems like a friendly place. Not sure if my collection will ever be as large as some of those on the forum, as i'm mostly hunting at car boots and charity shops. However, it does make it more exciting, since i've no idea what my next find will be Very Happy

Hi NightLioness, you guys sure are a friendly forum cheers

I'm not too worried about the size, it's better to keep things small since I live in a small house :)

I hope to stumble across some more lovelies very soon, it's surprising the things people throw out or get rid of. I don't know much about Schleich, but even I know you can ask for more than 50p :)

Thanks, always nice to hear that ^.^

Luckily model animals can stand almost everywhere cheers Laughing

You will be more surprised once you know more about the older Schleich and that you can find them also for some cents. The dinos you have found are a good example of that :)
And to some, model animals are just 'plastic toys' but for others those animals can be a treasure long sought after. I always search trough those bins/boxes/bags with all kind of small toys in them, mostly you will find Schleich (or other brands) in them :)

Are the dinos quite old then? Not that I mind, since i'm not looking for any particular animals. Smile More than anything I enjoy rummaging through the boxes of tat, finding a treasure amongst them is quite a thrill

Not that old for a Schleich.
But if you consider we are already 2015, than you can say they are old.

Triceratops
Tyrannosurus

A thrill indeed! cheers cyclops

Goodness me, for 12 years old they're still in amazing condition. That's one of the reasons I like Schleich, they're very durable :)

So I went out shopping today, and I found this little guy.  cheers  

He's much smaller than the other dinos i've got, but he was only 10p so I couldn't resist.

Thank you LeeAnn :)

Despite the rain I nipped into town today, and my favourite charity shop had this little cutie. Once again he only cost 10p, so I bought him home. :) My tiny collection is now at 6, and hopefully there will be many more in the future. Very Happy

I agree, he's soooo cute :) As for the bargains, I think i'm just getting lucky, most people around here don't seem to know how expensive Schleich animals are.

Don't tell them how expensive Schleich is, so you can keep getting these figures almost for free. Very Happy

Laughing Don't worry, as far as they know it's just a plastic figure. At least I know that if I ever choose to sell my collection, i'm sitting on a small profit. Very Happy

So after some success last week at the carboot, I went back this morning and came away with a pretty impressive haul. All for the bargain price of £2.50

















All my Schleich animals. If my Maths is correct they cost me just £4.10 Very Happy

I think lion cubs are definitely high on the agenda, they need a little family :)

I was so surprised to see them when rummaging in a box, asked the stall holder how much and almost bit her hand off for them. They have a few slight rubs, but I can't complain for such a cheap price. :)

I'm starting to wonder how those people can't know that they are selling 'cheap plastic animals' for such a low price XD Razz
Big congrats Very Happy And I agree with Susanne, maybe some cubs will follow next.
The standing one is a cute lion cub to have Very Happy

I'm scouring ebay as I type :) they need cubs, fingers crossed there will be some soon. :)

I honestly can't believe that people sell them for so cheap, a quick look on ebay shows how much people are wiling to pay, and how active the market is.

They are very fine finds.
I also find most of my figures as used toys and it is actually possible to find some, when one knows what to look for.
A little while back I found a mamut, some vild animals and some dogs in the local second hand shop for between 0,5-2 euros a piece, so I do not believe it is pure luck - it is about beeing able to spot the figures.

I agree with this, and Rakel when they say it's about being able to spot the figures. Schleich scream detail, especially in comparison to lots of run of the mill plastic animals. I went shopping again today, and this beauty was hidden in a jumble of other animals. He stood out a mile off, and I was happy to pay 10p for him :)




Still no babies, but i'm on the hunt. Very Happy
