The Mustang symbolises freedom and America’s Wild West. Mustangs were brought to America by the Spanish as domesticated horses, and became feral in America. Nowadays, the horses live in large herds. Mustangs are also called “mestengos”. This comes from a Spanish word meaning “wild, stray”. They were originally domesticated horses that the Spanish brought to America by ship in the 16th century and that ran away once in America. Since they found plenty of fodder on the fertile pastures and had almost no natural predators except pumas, their numbers rapidly increased. Wild Mustangs still roam the countryside to this day. They are led by a brave herd stallion who protects his herd and is usually the father of all the foals.
Fun fact: Mustang stallions are very brave. They defend their herd even if they’re injured.
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.
