I received a few retired figures in the mail this week.

I have been watching for this little lady for quite a while...


Hippopotamus 14035 1991-2004 I am thinking she was one of the earlier productions because she doesn't have a year on her just Schleich with an S within a circle and it says GERMANY in tiny letters on the underside near a hind leg.
She has been reunited with her family. cheers



I am happy to have these also now in my collection.




Hedgehog 14237 1998-2004 Germany
Wolf 14223 1992-2002 Germany
Doberman 16318 1997-2001 Germany

And finally this beastie:


Waterbuffalo 14133 1996-2001 Made in China

cheers Sue

Gorgeous finds ! sunny

I also love that old hippo, she looks like she has found some really juicy grass
and is trying to get as much as possible inside her mouth at one time Very Happy
You are probably right that she is quite old. She was already launched in 1992.
Those with a year on is marked 1991.

They are all wonderful models, congratulation with these beautyful oldies cheers flower

The hedgehog is one of the most lovely of all the Schleich models,
- that one and the hare from the same time. They look so vintage Wink

Those are really nice additions! I confess I've removed recently the cape buffalo and lady hippo from my wish list, not only because Mojo is releasing two excelent figures this year but mainly because they are hard to find and expensive. Anyway I love them and they look great in your pictures. :)
I agree the hedgehog has a vintage looking but the wolf is very Schleichish! Laughing
Congratulations, Sue! flower flower

Not true, Roger. There are zillions of auctions and Buy-It-Now offerings for these on eBay.de. I have won both hippo variants for 3 euros or less each, and the cape buffalo for 5 euros in flawless condition. Overall, I've had seven or eight cape buffaloes in four years of collecting, and have sold them on eBay.com for as little as 12 USD.

I wouldn't want to see fledgling Schleich collectors dissuaded from seeking these figures based on misinformation... exclamation

Congratulations Sue, these are excellent additions! I love the Doberman, he's gorgeous I love you
I'd like to add this buffalo to my collection too. So far I only have the Schleich new version - I will hopefully get the Mojo one as well.
