Most people know dolphins from films or zoos. In the sea they live together in groups, so-called schools, in warm waters. These schools can consist of 15 to 100 individuals, sometimes up to 1,000. Dolphins are mammals and have an average length of 2.40 metres and weigh roundabout 230 kilograms. They feed on crabs, eels, squids and other species of fish. Foraging is done with the help of echolocation. They also make sounds to communicate with their fellow dolphins. Among each other these marine mammals keep company very fondly. They frequently keep good company with humans too. The U.S. Navy trains these clever animals to recognise underwater mines or to use them for other dangerous missions.

Competence and Experience - these two elements have been the basis of our company since we started as a supplier to the plastic industry. Friedrich Schleich founded the company in 1935. The now famous Schleich figurines first came to life in the 1950's.
The design of the Schleich products and the creation of the required tools are done in house, thus enabling us to control the initial vital steps of creating a new product. The production itself takes place at the company`s German headquarters and in a number of production facilities in foreign countries. Our products are marketed world wide.
