New cows are not bad, but not only Fleckvieh or Holstein. And they should have horns.

Finally it looks if Schleich is going to make new elephants, maybe even in both series!
The big question is if they will make them in a good size??? question Rolling Eyes Shocked
I understand when they retire items that won't sell god, although the retirement of the gnucalf means that we won't have afamily of gnu's then, and they were on the track of making families the last years... Rolling Eyes
I hope we will see the news very soon! Very Happy

Schleich is being really strange once again. If they like families, then why are they retiring the Clyde mare and making that poor foal an orphan? That's cruel!

It is a shame as he was really nice. But Papo's one is so much more realistic, maybe that's why they retired him.

The prehistoric mammals and dinosaurs were probably not selling well. They were big, ugly, expensive, and inacurrate.All the other companies offer some better/cheaper ones instead.
I guess the end of some lines is approaching. Neutral

I hope they will make new elephants, but why on Earth not new hippos or a female ostrich?????????????????? pale
Also, why no new dogs lately? Those sell well.

@Wildheart. In germany, the Schleich Dinosaurs are very big sellers ! That's why they were sold such a long time, and I'm sure, the line isn't ending, just a few models, and nobody knows, if these models will be replaced or not, but I think so...

Nobody knows at this time, if there will be an ostrich female and or new hippos. Because the old hippos model ins't retired yet, is dosen't mean, no hippos will be published in 2012...

@Abu Rai.Why Schleich should do that ? Don't Worry, they won't, I'm sure, the new elephants will have the same size as the present elephants.

And why not? Maybe you're right but they made it with the white new heroes elefant Twisted Evil

Well, Schleich seems to disprove [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] once again... Does it mean that the long ago outdated hippo, bison male, squirrel eating will remain at the market? And the older ostrich male? and rhino female? white-tailed deers?

I think they are good at making money Laughing Laughing

At least here all the kids want "Schleich-animals", so that is what they buy and what they get for christmas.
These "bread"-customers do not care a thing if the model has been made for 25 years Rolling Eyes

As long as those sell well, why spend money on new tools, pictures, distribution etc...there is only a little, tiny flock of serious collectors who want a new one...and how many are we? Max 1 out of 1,000,000 people even in the rich countries ? Crying or Very sad
