Yes, Schlech sold some of the VW models back in '93, but they were moulded with Safari's name. Actually they were exactly the same.
The tags too, except that "Safari" was replaced by "Schleich".
The tale goes that the people in Safari's production joked about it , saying that "Taday we make Schleich", while thay were making exactly the same models.
Safari also sold Schleich models in '90, as you can see on p1 here : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
They also sold TM and Invicta and many other brands.
The only model I know sold by both Schleich and Safari but with eac ones name mould on is the Mountain goat ( Schleich 2005 - 7, and Safari 2008 - 11)
