Below are some of the products SCHLEICH NORTH AMERICA, INC. has shared with ToyDirectory and TDmonthly
There's a new category of collectible from Schleich — the American Frontier (Wild West). Like this Cowboy With Lasso, they're based on the United States' westward expansion of the 1800s. "Schleich figurines are meticulously crafted and hand-painted with attention to detail," said Katherine MacLean, sales and marketing coordinator for Schleich North America Inc. "They are realistic without a cartoon feel. The price points are reasonable. Schleich is becoming a brand." Launch date: September 2006.
— "We have a line of animals from Schleich that does extremely well. There are all types of animals from frogs to horses to elephants," said Holly Reay, owner of Kid’s Corner in Carmel, Ind.
— Bonnie Dodds, owner of Bonnie’s Toys and More in Iowa City, enthusiastically endorsed the brand in the miniature category by exclaiming, "Schleich everything!" sells well.
— Nine of 45 retailers we asked told TDmonthly that these figurines were popular with their customers.

The 2006 Halloween Smurfs are everything you would least expect from a Smurf. They're scary, gruesome and definitely not cute ... or so they think. But Smurf lovers from kids to adults will want to add these spooky blues to their collections. Also in the series are a Ghost, Witch, Mummy, Vampire, Jack-o-Lantern, Creature and Death With Scythe.
— "We don't have much licensed product. If we do have anything, it would be Smurfs. We sell lots of Smurfs. We have a huge display," said Tristan Hewitt, manager of Dragon's Toy Box in Seattle.
— "I'd say we sell about 20 or 30 a month,” he noted.
— “Schleich is the original manufacturer of the Smurf figurines. 2008 will be the 50th anniversary of the Smurfs, and their birthday is being commemorated with a movie that is being produced by Paramount Pictures,” Katherine MacLean, sales and marketing coordinator for Schleich North America, told TDmonthly.

Jousting knights and horses need a place to gather, rest and strategize. This modular castle has two 16.5” towers with crenellations so archers can let fly and then hide, a drawbridge and an authentically medieval look. Made of textured plastic, the castle comes as an easily assembled kit. Towers and other pieces are available separately so that kids can add to the castle as their collection of knights and horses grows.
— Karen Barwick, owner of Boomerang Toys in New York City, expected the Knight’s Castle to be a great Christmas seller.
— The knights and horses that fit in this castle have been cited by almost every retailer surveyed as the hottest collectible item among boys ages 4 to 12.
— “The Knight’s Castle is a winner for us,” said Sam Armstrong, CEO of Schleich North America. “It’s a product everyone is chasing right now. We’re getting containers in every week, so it’s just a question of keeping of up with the demand.”
