Schleich toys are invaluable in educational play and provide endless imaginative and creative fun. With such a vast range of animals, figures and playsets available there really is something for everyone whatever type of creature they love and enjoy.
As part of their ‘Educational Play the Schleich Way campaign’, Schleich have created a 16 page brochure that is designed to guide parents as to the best in imaginative play and development. I’ve had a chance to look through the brochure and it really refreshs your mind with the importance of play, whether it’s alone or in a group, imaginative or creative and all all the skills that it gives to a child in their early years.
The brochure also give you lots of play and game ideas, really simple and probably the sort of thing you are doing already, but these prompts are really useful particularly if you are running out of ideas, feeling tired or just looking for a different way of playing with your Schleich figurines with your child. There are also ideas for other general play and games to encourage you to stimulate your children naturally and immerse them in play with any toys that they.
I think Zoo Keeper is a really fun but educational game where the child sets out their animals like a zoo and you discuss what the animals will be eating and where they come from all as you play along with the zoo creatures. This way the child will learn without realising it, but also have a lot of fun along the way with the carpet divided into various zoo enclosure’s full of animals!
The animals from Schleich are packed full of educational value, there is so much you can do with them, and they fit into all areas of play. My little boy has had the animals above out in the garden on adventures and up in his bedroom going along in trucks and all sorts! He also owns a number of other Schleich creatures such as dinosaurs which often come out and mix with his super hero figures or are even for sale when he plays shops!
The quality of Schleich products is fantastic, they look great, feel great and really will last a lifetime, well worth investing in some as they can play such a great part in your childs playtime.
