“ Brand: Schleich „
My younger sister had loads of these animals when she was younger and as they were such great quality they were put away in the loft for when one of us started having children, me being the first to have children the bag of the animals has made a reappearence and now my girls aged 5 and 2 play with them.
The animals we have were originally bought from The Early Learning Centre but our local store doesn't sell these ones anymore and just a cheaper style of animal. You can buy this calf from Amazon at £6.30 with free delivery which is a little expesive but they are really great quality.
When you buy the animals you get a little booklet with them that tells you about the animal however my Mam put these away when my sister was young knowing she would just destroy them and they have never been seen again. The animals are made for children aged 3 and up but my 2 year old gets loads of fun out of the animals and we have never had any issue withe her playing with them.
The Killer Whale is the calf version and we have got both the adult and the calf, the calf is a bit flatter across the body than it's parent, it has the normal black and white markings of a Killer Whale and it has a little pink spot which is indented to show where the blow hole would be.
The calf is pretty light in weight especially when you compare it too it's parent who is really heavy, the quality is excellent and even though it has been well played with the only damage on it is a tooth mark on the flipper where my daughter decided to have a bite.
My daughters love playing with all the animals but the whales and the dolphins also join them in the bath where they play splashing games with them. My eldest daughter uses plays for ages with the animals and we use them to match up similar types and talk about them such as Whales and Dolphins and Tigers with Lions.
These animals are quite expensive but would say that it is worth it, they are excellent quality and will go for years.
