Okapi by Schleich
Okapi by Schleich. Hand painted animal figurine by Scheich.
11cm x 4cm x 10.4cm.
The okapi is a small forest giraffe. Particularly remarkable is the striped fur on its hindquarters, which resembles a zebra. Okapis live in a small area in the African rainforest and eat leaves, fruits, ferns and mushrooms. The animals are very shy and were therefore not discovered until 1890.
Fun fact: Okapis lick clay to absorb minerals and salts.
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.

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.
