So, remember when schleich delayed certain models to next year

Hannah with Cayenne

Sarah and Mystery
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Sofia and Blossom
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Lisa and Storm
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Notice how all of these state more than 10 items available. These models are in circulations and not as scarce as I expected. What I initially thought that some were sold on toy fares or as samples and are now in circulation. But it seems to be more than that.
Now did schleich do this to create a sense of exclusivity??? More money? I duno, but I find this mildly suspicious.

To next year, or later this year?
I honestly can't remember XD

If it is next year, then yeah, it is very strange.
It is not the first time Schleichs communication with their stores/customers is wonkey or non existent.
If this is such a marketing strategy, then they push their brand name really high (Oh look, Schleich! Need to buy it! Etc, etc...).
I can't seem to find any relevant information about why they are for sale right now.
Their Instagram isn't helpful, same on Facebook.

Next year, according to otten's website

I find it odd that they are in circulation on ebay if they were moved to next year...

Maybe I should put my limited editions in the sink, light candles and say schleich three times in front of my bathroom mirror tonight. Maybe the urban legend of the schleich representative is true.
Or does he only come out when we post pictures before they official publication?

But it indeed is very strange they are popping up everywhere.

It seems they are for sale everywhere (UK and France amazon have them too!) except Benelux....
But the official Schleich site doesn’t sell them. Something is going not how it supposed to go...

scratch
My theory is that the Schleich distribution centre still shipped the faulty products out, which they actually weren’t supposed to do. So, all the shops who get them directly from the official Schleich distributor gotten them, Puppy EU (the distributor for the Benelux) however kept them at their distribution centre after receiving them from the official Schleich distributor.

I think there is no intent from Schleich in this. Mainly because the sellers are all retailers who buy Schleich products for less and sell them for the prices Schleich sets for them (and therefore keep a part of the profit) While the official Schleich webshop doesn’t offer the products, while those platforms result in more profit for Schleich since they get all of the selling price.

That doth sound very plausible. A theory I can actually put to the test, bc I ordered a set of these sons of mothers!

No, just see what it is that might be so faulty about them. And next year compare them with the riders of the new friesian and the new washplace.

Stay calm. Producer/Seller problems appeared in other brands, too. Remember for the Papo Brachiosaurus, for example, or some Collectas.

Are they doing the same with the, for me, mysterious set 'Tori and Princess' a few months ago they were coming soon to a lot of webshops but by now they're sold out everywhere. Who can tell me more about this set?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] as far as I know, is the set with Tori and Princess not available yet. A lot of webshops show the sign “Sold out“ while they actually mean “Not in Stock“. I know a few shops that do the same, while I’m 100% sure they never even got 1 of the set in stock.

I‘m not sure if they do it on purpose to give costumers a feeling of urgency to buy it when they do have it in stock. Or maybe simply because the website automatically shows “Sold out” when the stock is 0.
