My daughters were passed down a great set of the Schleich wild animal range from my sister who got them when she was little, most of the animals we have are in family sets and of the Zebras we have this male, a female and a cute little foal.
The animals were bought originally from Mothercare and my sister collected them over a couple of brithdays and Christmases, Mothercare do still sell some of the animals but there seems to be a wider range on Amazon. This Male Zebra currently sells at £4.75 on Amazon with free delivery which I think is great value as the toy is so goo and I am now adding to the girls collection for Christmas.
The Zebra is about 10cms long and is slightly bigger than the female version, the zebra stands about 9cms tall and is pretty heavy. The Zebra is of course black and white in colour and has lots of stripes, he has a thick area for the hair which has lots of markings in it for the detailing, the face makes him look really stern and you can see from his face he is the boss.
The Zebra is really well made and he is really robust, he is one of the few animals that I worry a little about my youngest who is 2 playing with due to his weight, you could easily do someone an injury with him. The toy is made for children aged 3 plus however apart from his weight there is no issue with younger children playing with him in my opinion.
The girls love playing with the animals, they enjoy putting the animals into their families aswell as counting the legs to group them together too. The animals are educational and your children can learn alot from them, my daughter likes to announce the pattern on the zebra which can get quite annoying.
These animals are years old and this one is still in pefect condition, they are fun, educational and great value.
