But I think your friend must be a little out of date
The little circle is relatively new, - the last 2 or 3 years by Schleich.
It is a common tool used for quality control.
In that way it is easy to go back and see when a problem started.
As far as I know Schleich never glued their figueres. Mr Schleich was a bit of a wizzard when it came to tools/moulds. But if you look at Papo, they have been using an awful lot of lgue on their earlier models
Silvia ( I think it was Silvia) asked Schleich what the numbers meant, and they ansvered that they used the numbers to identify the moulds, as they have several moulds for each figuere, - or even moulds for making several identical figueres at a time in one mould.
If there was a problem with a mould, the number tells them which mould is not working right, and they only need to concentrate on that one.
Or that is how I heard it
I have worked with quality control for 15 years, even was i Japan to study it, - and this does make sence.
Oh, thank You for the info Susanne!
That is possible he can be not up to date!! Well, that was interesting conversation anyway . At least I know how did they do it in the times of communism in Poland
So Schleich not use glue for their animals, that's nice to know. And all Your info are very interesting, thank You!
