PostSubject: Where do you buy your schleich in YOUR country?   Fri Jan 13, 2012 12:34 pm

I'm just a curious little rhino...

In my town, there is only one store which sells schleich, Citymarket, and I use it alot :) How ever I decide to buy just food, schleich animals jumps in to my shopping cart... Strange, isn't it? Wink
I also use a lot of internet , mostly this shop: ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And in southern Finland i buy my schleich from BR-lelukauppa ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or Toys R us ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I buy mostly from eBay (.de, .fr and .com). Locally, there is an excellent toy store nearby, as well as a feed store where I purchase Schleich figurines. I know of several other independently-owned toy stores in the Sacramento and SF Bay Area regions which are Schleich distributors. Occasionally, I find older used figurines in antique stores.

I can buy Schleich at a few stores here. In fact we sell them where I work, but only the farm animals, horses, pets...no real wildlife. I also buy at Tractor Supply and some at Toys R Us. Toys R Us is VERY expensive though.

Many of my animals have come from my friends here on this forum.
I have yet to find Schleich in antique stores, but then again I haven't really looked. I do love a treasure hunt. Ebay is nice because you can find what you want and just buy it (usually for a high price). But for me I love the "thrill of the hunt" and I have found some true treasures at really good prices!

If I must mail order I buy from TGF Toys online. They seem to have competitive pricing and also really good service!

I nearly always buy online now, the toy shop in the town near me is so expensive.
I buy from a mixture of sites, depending on who is the cheapest at the time

Same here, they are awfully expensive in the shops, - and all the have is Schleich, Schleich, Schleich Laughing

When I buy online there are several things I look for,
- prices, of course ?
- do they also have other stuff I am looking for ?
- AND cots of shipping. Often they send free of charge if you buy for a certin amount.

I use this place a lot :

These have a great range of many brands, but they aren`t cheap

I buy there also because they have the most fantastic service, - and speak english ;-)

I have bought from them for as many years as they have existed.
They have a lot of different toys, so I buy there, when I need f.ins Lego as a gifts for children in my family

Sometimes I buy horses for girls in the neigbourhood..they get them a lot cheaper than in the shops, - and we all get shipping free of charge Laughing

About German, - if you use Googletranslate at the beginning, there are very few important words to learn in order to understand enough to shop safely study

In Finland BR and ToysRus are the most expensive places to buy Schleich animals for normal price. Tough they sell quite often old models for just few euros, today I got animals for 15 euros when they would have normally cost over 35 euros.

Cheapest place to buy animals in southern Finland is toystore Casagrande, where I always buy my new horses from. On local newpaper is once a year a coupong that gives -20 % of one buy. That's alot when buying over 10 animals at a time!

Older animals and special editions I buy from eBay (Germany).

Try eBay, it's in finnish :) You can buy schleich from Germany alot cheaper than in Finland and shipping is even faster when ordering from Germany than from Finland. Shipping is about 4 euros per 500 g, so that's not expencive.

There are at least 3 shops in my town which sell Schleich but I prefer to buy them online. I've found a Polish online shop, and it's cheaper when I buy there.

In France, we can find Schleich in shops named King Jouet (the best) and sometimes at Picwic, Joué Club, La Grande Récré...

I've got a Joué Club in my town !! And the nearest King Jouet is 60 km far !!

I don't buy online or very rarely. I absolutely want to see what I buy, so that I can choose the best figurine of each model. I have decided to order online only retired models !

Here's my list with the number of each of the store in our city in brackets (...)

Big R Tractor and Farm Supply (2), Aslin Finch Farm Supply (3), Toys R Us..now called Babies R Us (2) and Fred Meyer (3) and I have actually seen Schleich on sale at Fred Meyer, but it is usually a select few and not usually advertised and you can use a flyer coupon to get a discount as well. Wink
When I want a specific figure I too will go to the store and "pick through" those available at the store...

Online stores:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

and of course ebay.com has some "stores" that sell Schleich.

Hope someone finds this list helpful. Of course there are other stores online that carry the other brands. Wink
