White tigers are not true albinos: real albinos have red eyes, but white tigers’ eyes are blue.  White tigers are breathtakingly beautiful.  They have a snow-white fur and strong, bright blue eyes.  They differ from normal tigers because their fur, skin and eyes cannot form red and yellow pigments.  White tigers usually live in zoos because in the wild they would have little chance of survival.  Because their fur is missing the camouflage, prey would discover them quickly and run away early enough.

Fun fact:  Only 1 in 10,000 tiger cubs is white.

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.
