There’s always something new from Schleich, and the new toys always fit in well with existing ones, thereby extending the play value of children’s entire collections. Learning about animals offers a fascinating world for pre-school and older children too. The 4×4 vehicle is recommended for 5 to 8 year olds on the box, but I am sure young children will thoroughly enjoy it too. The additional ranges, which include this 4×4 vehicle, really add to the play value as children’s imaginations have plenty of scope added.
Unusually, this set does require putting together to make the vehicle, but that just adds to the fun – and the tyres can be changed when a problem arises! The set includes a poseable ranger, who can stand or drive the vehicle, plus a chimp. The extendable winch can be secured on either the front or the rear of the vehicle, adding to the play value – secure it to the tree trunk to pull the vehicle out of the mud. Lots more too – including a petrol canister and veterinary equipment!
Schleich’s vast collection of farm and wild life animals ensure children can learn as they play, due to the high attention paid to complete accuracy of detail and the exceptional quality of the hand painting. Each Schleich animal, whether new or part of the existing line-up can be collected one by one until an entire play world is created. Couple this with the ready-to-play sets and accessories and the scenario is complete, giving endless scope for hours of educational play. The animals are a great way to encourage children to take an interest in our wildlife, and to encourage them to find out more for themselves. Another superb addition to a fabulous range.
