Here are my latest additions in Schleich.

Baby African Elephant from local shop and grazing giraffe from Rusty!

When I got the baby elephant I also found a colorful rooster. I already have him in my collection, but this one is different as he's painted much brighter in color. The one on the left is the new one and is made in China. The one on the right, made in Germany! :)

I have found that with my other Germany figures (especially the more recent ones) they are painted not as bright in color, almost with an "antique" look. Has anyone else noticed this and have variations to share?

The baby elefant there is one of the best models of elefants ever made, IMHO.
From ALL brands ! It is both realistic, adorable and MOVING cheers

Thank you Susanne! My little elephant family is complete. Very Happy

As far as the variations....you cannot look for them cause it will drive you crazy. You have to let them find you. Wink

Congratulations Kristie and for your variation, nice find! I love having made in Germany Schleich drunken cheers I need to enlarge my hen collection, since I love hens and cockerels so much it's surprising I only have two Rolling Eyes Laughing

Congratulations on this great find with the rooster and your baby elephant and giraffe. I love variations as well, but it can be very pricey.
