PostSubject: First Germany-made Schleich in Ukraine!   Sun Oct 17, 2010 6:46 pm

Hi, everyone!
Yesterday I went to my traditional mid-Autumn shopping for Schleich and was very surprised to see some “Made in Germany” figures in the store! As I’ve told earlier, only China-made Schleich wildlife figures have been imported to Ukraine, and I didn’t even hope that things could change…
In total there were four German-made models: fox, older raccoon, new swan and mallard duck (there were both German and Chinese ducks). And you know, the magic words “Made in Germany” did a miracle: I’ve bought the fox! :) Me, who always said that the fox is the worst Schleich animal figurine... :) But with the “Made in Germany” marking the fox looked sort of better than usual Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy


By the way, Germany- and China-made mallard ducks have visible differences – not in painting, but in the surface finishing: the German model is more matte, while the Chinese one is more plastic-looking and a bit shiny.

Mine is distinctively red, even closer to orange.

Same here - I have special feelings towards my "Made in Germany" items, which are rather scarce.

But they're nice as well! Their color seems to be even closer to reality.
