If you've never seen the Schleich animal series from Germany, you are missing out. These are awesome high-quality animal toys for kids. Well sculpted and lots of fun to collect. Typically found in smaller mom and pop shops, gift shops, arts and craft stores, and you can find these at Toys R Us as well. They have a nice line of animals, horses, dinosaurs and Smurfs.
My kid and I spent hours standing these animals up and playing around with them. I focused on the bears and animals of the mountain wilderness. A few of these are not Schleich.
