The Portuguese compagny Maia & Borges has worked together with Schleich for many, many years. I think that the "Made in Portugal" models from Schleich have always been made by M&B.

M&B has made both sea life and coral fish from Sahleich`s moulds, - now these seem to be produced again.

So if you are searching for the Beluga or the sea cow, you can get them here, for instance, at a reasonable price:

The mould is clearly the same, but the ones from Schleich are darker and more shiny:

And the brand mark is different :

Unlike the one marked Schleich, the M&B one has a calf cheers

Laughing Laughing Of course I remember the wahle shark. I'm very glad you decided to contact me and Maia & Borges have a special meaning for me not only because it is a Portuguese brand but mainly because it made me to know a fantastic and wonderful Danish friend. flower flower
I'm not sure that Oceanário shop still have M&B figures. I think not. scratch

Susanne, thank you very much for posting this. cheers (it's like Bullyland and Kindertoyz Very Happy , but the quality of the animals looks way much better)
For a long time I've been thinking about buying the three big Schleich Whales (they were retired this year, but they're still available), but now I think I'll buy some Maia & Borges sealife animals. And they have that lovely Walrus for a such a nice price and Puffin and the Octopus. Very Happy

The moulds are exactly the same, but the colours are differnet in some.
Also M&B models are less shiny.

You can compare here. The Schleich ones are in front :

Thankyou VERY much, dear friends sunny

Ohh, BTW, - this is probably well known to most collectors of Schleich Rolling Eyes
Maia & Borges also made their own versions/paintings of the tropical fiish from the moulds of Schleich, only with their own logo in the mould :

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

The close cooperation between Schleich and Maia & Borges goes far back in time.
In the book from the 75 years anniversary of Schleich we can read that M & B helped save Schleich in 1987 when they were declared bankrupt, - you can see more [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] if you are interested Wink

I wonder if M & B actually is where the "Made in Portugal" Schleich models are made scratch

Yes, and in lately they also have models made in Tunesia.
But they do not have their own facturies in all those places.
Other compagnies also mould the models and paint for them .

I think it is a Malamute. The Huskies are slimmer and do not have their tail curled up like that. scratch
