“ Brand: Schleich „
My sister had a massive bag of these animals when she was little and as they were such great quality they were put into the loft for when one of us had children, me being 9 years older than her as expected that was me and now my daughters play with these animals when they are at their Grandparents.
The animals were originally bought from Early Learning centre but I have looked in there as I was thinking of adding to the set and have found that the animals that they now sell are not these ones and are nowhere near the quality of the Schleich brand. This Killer whale can be bought from Amazon although at £8.99 for the adult whale this is by no means cheap. The Killer Whale is about 20cms long and it is meant for children aged 3 and up however my 2 year old plays with this and there is no problem with this.
The Killer Whale is available in Mummy and in baby of which we have both, the animal is rubbery and very heavy which is my only concern when my 2 year old starts waving it around as if she let go it could easily do someone an injury. The killer whale is painted as you would expect in black and white and it has a little pink circle which is slightly indented about a quater of the way down it's back from it's head to represent it's blow hole.
My daughter love playig with all the animals and they have a wide range to choose from, they play Mammy's and Daddy's with them as most of the animals in the range you can get both parents and a baby. The girls like to take this one in the bath along with the Dolphin and like playing splashing games with them much to my Mams dismay!
The Killer Whale is fantastic, it is painted in block colour which is nice and simple and it is extremely durable, this toy has been played with for years now and it has stood the test of time. The price may be a little steep but when you think we are now onto the 3rd child playing with it with my youngest daughter and there are still many years of play left it is much better value than some modern day style toys.
