I have always wanted to know (approx.) how many people are:

Collectors of Schleich; puts them on display and uses them only for shows and makes sure they are in LSQ condition.
                                                                     or
Play or User of Schleich; (I don't exactly know how to name theses type people) plays with them and warns them out until there is nothing left of them leaving them in Body condition, with scratches, dents, rubs, broken parts, etc.

This is just meant for fun, please do not be harsh to anyone in any way because of their ways/choice.
Thanks!

And if you're not a full on collector or a 'destructive' player I'll just add an in between. Just because I am :)

I think this forum is not representative...the "players-only" aren`t here Laughing

But there are many in-betweens...perhaps you should add that 3rd option in your poll ? scratch

I think something between would be an option, I mainly collect but when I have some free time I take my animals outside for photos or I play with my son ( but except more delicate figures: japanese, handmade or vintage) . :)

(oh and I think you ask not only about schleich animals but animal figures in general?)

Strictly collector, although I do destroy the figurines in a sense, when I customise them.

I'm a customiser/collector, and maybe a little bit a user (when nobody is watching an I should do my homework) but I make sure there are no scratches anywhere on the figure.

Yes, there should be an option "customiser" then you use them, but you don't really play with them...
