Schleich searches for new star for its Wildlife line-up

Published on: 11th July 2018

In a global campaign, Schleich is asking its fans to vote for the next species to join its list of true-to-life Wildlife figurines.

The winning figure will take pride of place in the 2019 catalogue.

The consumer vote will take place between 11th and 19th July, with entrants being asked to go online to the global website to place their nomination. As an added incentive 15 Wildlife Playsets are up for grabs, and winners will be chosen randomly from all those that vote.

Paul Dearlove, marketing manager, Schleich UK, commented: “This is just the sort of campaign that shows how Schleich’s toys and playsets have no global boundaries and are relevant to children the world over. We expect the choice of animals to be extremely varied and I for one cannot wait to see what wins. What’s more not only is this initiative great fun, but the market research will also be invaluable. My personal vote goes to the Tasmanian Devil.”
