Did you bought them new or used? I absolutly agree with you that it doesn't looks nice...maybe someone wanted to hide some defects, or they do this in the factory when they painted wrong...

they are new with tags. I looked at one that I had previously purchased from a completely different place and it has them too. Not as obvious as these but they are definitely there. I am going to have to look at the ones in the local stores and see if they are the same way.

hmm, at the second picture, at the left bottom corner, there is a white line that looks, like there was brown painting, that shouldn't be there. maybe the color leaks by paintig this giraffe design and they have to repanit this design at some places...
i hope you understand me, i think i even couldn't describe it well in german Rolling Eyes

I know exactly what you mean but it just seems odd that they would be so sloppy with it and that it is such a different color and from the looks of the female one there is no paint underneath just the brown stenciled in so it really looks obvious on her.

To me it looks like the "normal" white parts arent painted, but just the "Rohling" white. That would be the reason for the different white colour. Maybe its impossible to schleich to make the painting right at the first time (what i dont believe). But maybe they are using cheaper paint and re-do some lines instead of using expensive high quality paint. perhaps they are made in china?

you could tell Schleich about these bad painiting jobs. Just if everyone who is disapointed about quality tells Schleich, there could be a change exclamation

That worked some years ago with Steiff, the german soft toy producer. They started sometimes to produce in China and they got so many complaints by fans and collectors because the quality got very bad, that they are now producing in Germany or Europe again.
So to everyone: Start complaining if youre not satisfied Twisted Evil affraid Laughing Wink

frogman, please tell us if you ever found any giraffe without these white lines...

Ok so all four of these have it. The one drinking is made in Germany and the other three made in China. I sent the pictures to Schleich to see what they have to say about it.

That's a very good example photo. You can see on the giraffe on the left where the two brown spots blend together on the neck, and on the giraffe on the right that spot has been painted.
I wonder if they are using tampo machines? With these really curvy surfaces it would be difficult to get them to always be spot on unless the animal is really well set in the holding device.

I am sorry for you Froggy... Crying or Very sad
I guess, those were a little bit re-painted, as they came out of machinal painting with some mistakes, and they tried to make it better, which wasn't a succes as it seems... Mad

I have the same thing on my 4 giraffes (that I got all new with tag). I have checked in different shops and they ALL have those white "lines". I think they sometimes paint so fast that two brown spots get linked. Then, they have to make those white lines. But, of course, I have chosen the models and my lines are correctly painted. The only thing is that they are not the same white as the background...

Yes, exactly, why don`t they chose the same colour as the backrround ? Shocked geek
I never noticed before .

Two of mine also have white lines, but they are nicer made.
Not this one, but look, her spots are different than on Rusty´s giraffe Shocked cheers

She is also more glossy I think, perhaps she is older ? She is made in China.

You have the older variant : the painting is slightly different : look at the hooves also, they are yellow and mine has black/grey hooves.

Great topic! Now everyone's checking their giraffes :)

Well, my giraffes are no exception, they all have that ugly white spots, but before you mentioned it, I didn't even recognize it. Thank you!

The giraffe Susanne showed here was the first version of this model.
When the drinking giraffe, and the stretched giraffe came out, they changed the former model and calf into a version which fitted better with the 2 new ones, so with smaller spots.
I thought this was old news... Rolling Eyes

For me too, I usually buy the new releases each year and didn't realize of that variation... Will check in the store later today (2 new on my list - these lists keep getting longer Very Happy )

My goodness I am really surprised that many of you didn't realise that the painting on the old female and calf giraffe was changed to match the painting of the other two new giraffes. This always has to be done to keep consistency and I just assumed you were all aware of this.

Another variant to note was the change to the original female black rhino - when they brought out the new male and calf they had to change some of the texture and colouring of the female to make it match with the darker male. I hope you are aware of this too?

At least now we are aware of such changes and keep an eye out.....what fun! Very Happy

I agree with what was said earlier regarding the giraffes, there must have been an error on the paint scheme joining two of the brown spots and instead of fixing the paint template problem they thought it would be easier just to draw those white lines on which I agree looks ugly.

As for the 5 shops which you have looked and found the same paintwork then it must be that those shops which would be in close proximity to each other were sent stock from the same batch around a similar date. I sometimes find it easier to spot variances in different stores when travelling around Europe....
