My daughters have got loads of the Schleich range of animals as they were passed down from my younger sister, most of the animals are in family units and one of the families we have is the Chimps family, in my opinion they are about the ugliest family of these animals.
The animals were originally bought from Mothercare for my sister and you can still buy some of them from there and you can also buy them from Amazon, Amazon have this one in a family unit at the moment so you get Mammy, Daddy and baby Chimp for £8.75 although there is an extra £3.75 for the delivery charge.
Mammy Chimp is a little bit smaller than Daddy Chimp at about 6cms taller and is nearly as wide as tall. The Chimp is sat on her bum with her legs bent up as if she is about to get up but then her arms stretched out and turned upwards as if she is saying "I give up" There is loads of detail on the animal and there are markings for all her fur but her face for all it is detailed it is pretty ugly and certainly not a cute animal.
Both my daughters will not accept that this animal is a Chimp rather than a Monkey which I can understand from my 2 year old but my older daughter is 5 and has seen the different animals in the flesh in the zoo but still insists this is a Monkey. Both girls bounce around with this toy and the Daddy and baby which we also have shouting "oo oo oo" and calling each other Monkey's which I would have to agree with.
The toy is very durable, there is no damage to it at all and it is years old, the paintwork on the toy is still in perfect condition too. The toy is meant for ages 3 and up but like I said my daughter is 2 and she plays with the animals and she loves to play with them and neither myself or my Husband have any issues with her playing with them.
The toys are educational as well as being fun to play with and they are really great value too, we play counting and matching games with the animals or the girls play with them themselves and play roleplay style games. I would recommend all the animals and have bought the girls some more for Christmas presents.
