It was no surprise when I found out the 2017 catalogue would be the same as last year's; A5 formatted. I still miss our beloved A6 catalogues, but I think we should get used to the new format. Where the 2016 catalogues still matched the old Schleich style, the cover of the 2017 one looks completey different. I took some photographs of my issue, which you can find below, but don't hesitate to take a look at the online PDF catalogue in the links above.

Page count
2016.01 > 67
2016.02 > 79
2017.01 > 63
2017.02 > ??

2016 vs 2017
When opening the catalogue, it strikes me that Schleich pays little attention to their brand. In both 2016 catalogues you start with 4 pages about the brand, but these are just gone in the 2017 one. In the second catalogue of 2016 you can find some colour pages in the middle of the booklet (which can be taken out quite easily), but the 2017 catalogue is full of colour pages and little games, everywhere in the folder. A major change (not necessarily negative) is that all product numbers, names and price tags can be found beneath every page. The figurines on the page are simply numbered, and you can find addition information about the figurines beneath the page. It looks rather clean, actually. But the figurines are still pictured on busy backgrounds; I miss the simple white ones. Lastly, and what bothers me most, is that they completely left the pages on which you can see the new products. The first catalogue of 2016 had this, and I found this an improvement. Unfortunately Schleich didn't think the same, and they left it.

NOTE
Please note that the pictures below are from the Dutch/Belgian/French edition. Pictures and releases can be different in other countries. Also note that, as far as I know, exclusives are never pictured in the catalogue. Not sure what Schleich will do about the July sloth exclusive, though.

Great presentation of the new catalogue and very interesting observations. As a poor sighted man, I confess these catalogues are much less friendly, mainly when checking it in a collector's point of view. Now, it is not a big problem for me, Toy Animal Wiki will keep telling the Schleich history in the same way of ever and I feel more confortable with the wiki. However, a website is not a catalogue and I really wished Schleich could turn back to the classic style. Yes, classic once we see a very similar style in other companies like Papo, Bullyland, CollectA, Safari, etc. I also hope this new design doesn't turn fashionable and that other companies do not feel influenced.
I actually like the A5 size, I love the A5 Mojö catalogues for instance. On Schleich new catalogue, The busy background is in fact what I dislike.
By the way, I have a Portuguese version of this catalogue, if anyone is interested, I can send it and you only have to pay shipping. Very Happy

Thank you very much for your insight, Roger! I can tell you, even for someone with good sight like me, these new style Schleich catalogues are a disaster. I can understand why children love them, but I do miss the old Schleich catalogues. And indeed, I do hope so that the other brands don't get 'inspired' by what Schleich's doing these days!
Unfortunately, I've never seen a Mojö Fun catalogue in real life, so I had no idea Schleich's not the only one doing these A5 formatted catalogues. I prefer the A6 ones (I think it makes these collector's catalogues distinctive), but I think these A5 catalogues would look better when they have a clean, calm layout.

Ohh, great that it is not only me !!! I find them very confusing...and in a strange way it makes the range look smaller scratch

I fear that it is the fashion, - adults complain about it also in children's movies : Swish! Bang! hurry, hurry ! No time to sit together and talk about what happens. Rolling Eyes

Thankyou, Julie, for sharing pictures and your thoughts flower

Thanks for your comments, LeeAnn and Susanne! I'm glad that it isn't just me. I fear we have to get used to this new fashion of Schleich's Neutral

No. On this website there is only the brand catalog from January to June 2017.

I do have the brand catalogs but I lack the collector that is the one I need.

Thank you.

No need! You can find lots of catalogues (by other brands as well) on the Spielzeug Guenstig site, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The Schleich-S 2017 one is available in German. Good luck!
