Do your kids play with Schleich animals?

Saw these in a store today and my kids went nuts. They are not as open-ended looking as most of our toys (playsilks, blocks, building sets) but I can see how they would like them the same way they like their play food. I see all kinds of awesome reviews for these on amazon, but it seems like these are from collectors.

Experience with kids and Schleich animals?

For reference, my kids are 0, 2, 4, and 6.

Thanks!

For Christmas, we needed to buy something from Gma for our daughter and I asked my husband to pop to the toy store and get a few in the budget, I think $20.

My crazy husband bought a dragon, a bison and a fairy. My daughter totally makes it work. She likes them, just not to the extent that we will be buying one every week. Maybe once in a blue moon.

My DD got a bunch of Schleich horses for her 2nd bday and they are by far one of her favorite toys.

My kids have hundreds of them. We probably have at least 1 of everything. They sell them at our local feed store, and basically my kids get one every time we go.

We like them because they hold up better than most other toys. We have yet to have any of them fall apart or break. The paint even stays on!

Our kids play with them everyday. They're pricey but they seriously do hold up and look brand new even after several years of play. Best money we've spent.

Our family loves them too. We got my DS a large wood barn and quite a few horses, cows, chickens, pig, ducks, dogs and bunnies for his 3rd bday two years ago. All the kids love them. The last time we went to TSC he got a dragon and a ninja and DD1 got a horse and fairy that are really cool too. Pricey but definitely worth it IMO

Re: Do your kids play with Schleich animals?

They are like any other toy -- some kids love them, some could care less. My oldest has several of the horses and still loves them. Some of them she's had for 5 years, probably. My son wasn't really interested in any of them, and my youngest daughter is a bit iffy. She had some barnyard animals she used to play with, but she's outgrown those. I think she'd love some of the fairy ones, but I haven't gotten her any.

DS loves his. They used o have them at our local Target, and if he got a "treat" I would pick up one of the less expensive ones. They are great when we travel or to throw in the diaper bag or the car.

My oldest adores them, my youngest strangely does not. My oldest is really into the dragons so that is probably why. I think if I had done the knights and horses sets my youngest would have loved them but since he already had Playmobil I didn't. I do think they are open ended in that you can make up all kinds of adventures to have with them, the limit is your imagination. Any child that loves figures will enjoy them.
