Donkeys have a powerful and sturdy build.  They have a grey coat and white colouring around the snout and eyes.  The donkey has been serving mankind for thousands of years and can be used for a variety of tasks.  Donkeys are very efficient mammals.  They support the farmer at his work, transport loads, sire mules, keep horses company, tend sheep and are even kept as pets.  In many regions they are also appreciated for their ability to live in the desert.  Thanks to their robust stomachs and an ability to extract water from food, donkeys are superior to horses in that aspect.  Donkeys were well-known for their use in war and their general reliability.  Their numbers and popularity continue to grow.

Fun fact:  Donkeys can carry up to thirty percent of their own body weight and are therefore often used as pack animals..

Schleich products are made of various plastics and dyes, which are carefully selected to meet the respective requirements.  Most typically plastics used are polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), in addition to other plastics typical for toys.  Even the material suppliers are subject to strict controls by our quality officers. The dyes used are optimally adapted to the different types of plastic and demonstrate top-rate mechanical and chemical resistance.  They ensure the high durability of Schleich products and make all Schleich pieces saliva and sweat proof as well as abrasion-resistant, and thus ensure that they are completely safe for playing with. Only once a product meets fully all international laws, standards and guidelines for toys is it released for production.  All Schleich articles and materials comply with the national and international toy requirements applicable worldwide, as well as the new European Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC and DIN EN 71.

Recommended for 3+.

We love Schleich's realistic animal figures, a quality toy that stimulates the child's imagination as well as teaching them about animals and wildlife.
