Killer Whale by Schleich


Killer whale by Schleich.  Hand painted animal figurine by Scheich.

Model 14807.

7.68" x 3.82" x 2.64".

The orca is a large, toothed whale that belongs to the dolphin family.  Its black and white colouring makes its unmistakable.  Animals swimming under it don't recognise it, because the surface of the water is just as bright as its belly.  And from above, you can hardly tell its apart from the sea floor thanks to its black back.

Fun fact:  Orcas travel great distances, swimming up to 150km a day to hunt for prey.

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.
