Fleckvieh cows have a white head, white legs, a white belly and a white bushy tail. The rest of their coat is covered in patches that range in colour from light gold to reddish brown.
Grass is hard to digest. That’s why cows chew an average of 50 times per minute – a total of 30,000 times per day. Even if we humans really make an effort, we generally don’t chew a morsel of food more than 30 times. Cows produce over 150 litres of saliva per day as a result. This makes them very thirsty, so they also drink a lot of water: up to 180 litres per day. This is equivalent to a large bathtub filled to the top. If they are very thirsty, they can even drink 25 litres per minute.
Fun fact: Cows can smell fresh, verdant grass from up to eight kilometres away.
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.
