Octopuses are very curious, intelligent, and playful sea dwellers. They can open screw caps, play with toys in the current, and always find the exit from labyrinths.
Octopuses have three hearts. One is for the body and the other two pump blood through the gills.
The golden retriever, one of the most popular dog breeds, has a long history. The credit for the development of this breed is due to Lord Tweedmouth, who wanted to breed a strong, but gentle dog. Golden retrievers are the perfect family dog and need only daily exercise and sufficient attention. These sociable and sporty dogs have a friendly character. They like to swim and carry things in their mouths - take care where you put your shoes!

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.
