Hi

When i started to buy schleich it was because i loved it for my son.
now i've bought a catalog and found out that i've bought animals
from one year before the where sold. or even the don't have a year on them.

Hello!

When you look underneath the belly or bottom of the modell, u will find the country where it's made and also the brand of the animal. This is the best way to reconize them :)

Hallo!

Als je aan de onderkant of naar de buik van het model kijk, zal je het land vinden waar het gemaakt is, maar ook het merk van het dier. Als er dus 'Schleich' staat, ben je zeker dat het een echt Schleichmodel is! Ook staat er soms een cijfertje, dit cijfer toont de mal aan waarmee het figuurtje is gemaakt. Ook als je echte Schleich modellen komt zullen ze allemaal een papiertje rond hun hebben met 'Schleich' erop.

Hi, Pam, flower

Stay a while here with us at the forum, and you will never consider selling your nice models Laughing

The very old models did noy have the year they were made on them.
The year shown is usually ( always, I think) the year the mould was made, so they did not come for sale or in the catalogue untill the year after.

An example : The appaloosa horse 13271 has 2002 on it, and was made (sold) from 2003 - 2007 Very Happy

Hi Pam! Welcome to the forum.

By far the best way for you to get information about the figurines that you have is to post pictures of them here. There are so many of us who will be delighted to give you lots of information (more than you would ever want, probably) about each model. I'm quite serious when I say that there are some people on this forum that know as much about Schleich as anyone out there knows (I am not one of them, but they are here). And they will be delighted to help you.

Susanne answered this question above. The year on the animals is the year the mold was made and is usually one year prior to the year the model was released.

It's unlikely they are fakes. But posting some clean pictures of them from different angles, here on the forum, is the best way to find out.

One way to handle selling them on eBay is to make sure that you post several pictures of the same model, from different angles, on eBay. In this way, you can help assure any prospective buyers that they know what they would be purchasing.

Yes ! We are a very helpful bunch here cheers Wink

Another good idea to get a good price on Ebay, is to offer international shipping, - AND accept PayPal.
Bank transfer is very expensive from countries that do not have Euros Wink

Hmmm..one more good idea is to put many items for sale, one in each auction. Then prospective buyers can pick and choose, and perhaps save a small fortune by combined shipping Very Happy

What did I forget ??? scratch Rolling Eyes

PostSubject: Thanks   Tue Jun 19, 2012 11:32 pm

Thanks out there!

I'm glad i found this forum. You gave me enough to think about for today.
And i'll make some photo's some day.
For now my son and me are very much enjoing those beautiful almost alive animals.
I'm just wondering where i was spending my money on.
At first i was offering way to less.
And i didn't understand why.
I love those animals and what to know them.
also about the start of schleich.
And the say it an natural product
but what kind.

Thank you again and i'll come back. no hurry.
