The History Behind Schleich Horses
In 1935, Friederich Schleich founded the Schleich toy company in Germany. Ever since then, Schleich has been creating high-quality toys for kids all over the world. With more than 600 different figurines on the Schleich shelves, the horses are made to look as realistic as possible. From molding to painting, each horse is unique and some even have their own backstories.
The Schleich company began its life building bendable toy figures with long legs, pointy hats, and cone-shaped noses. These delightful little creatures were called “Jopos,” and they achieved great success with the children of Germany.
Since then, Schleich has evolved its craft to produce the most stunning toy figures of animals both real and mythical. From dragons to lions and more, Schleich toy horses have always been a source of great pride and joy. With the aid of computer software, high-definition molds, and the highest quality paint, Schleich can create true works of art that are safe for play.
What Makes Schleich Horses So Special?
There are hundreds of kinds of horses in the world and Schleich has taken that to heart in the creation of realistic figurines. They pride themselves on getting the details right from start to finish. All figures are delicately hand-painted, down to the last hair. So if your little one is dreaming of having a Palomino steed to call their own, we have one of a more manageable size to gift wrap.
How Many Horses Does Schleich Make?
Schleich makes dozens of horses for you to choose from. All Schleich horses are based on real horse breeds from the farthest reaches of the world. You can be sure to find the coolest and rarest horses to take home from wild Tinkers to ancient Arabian Thoroughbreds.
Each figure is carefully designed to match the build and color of a real-life horse. So, if your child is ready to start their journey as a professional horse rider, these figures are the perfect visual aids in helping them discover their favorite horse breeds.
How Schleich Horses Are Made
Over the years Schleich has evolved in its toy-making abilities.
Rather than carve wooden figures by whittling the tiniest shavings away, the production process is far more advanced.
Using 3D modeling software, they design the molds of all of figures. They then use wax to create the models, delicately refining the shapes of the models down to the last detail by hand. From there they work on bringing these figures to life with vibrant color. Schleich uses a variety of painting tools and techniques for all figures.
- Airbrushes for the base colors
- Paint brushes for fine details
- Sponges for color granulation
