Schleich is a brand of toy that I trust, they produce top quality models with beautiful detail and they really stand the test of time with even the most boisterous children. We have been fortunate to review dinosaurs and horses previously, but this time something completely new arrived!
The picture does not do this justice, the box is huge! Opening it up we were faced with some assembly…
But it was all straightforward, with clear instructions to help you. It literally took five minutes to assemble, if that.
Once assembled, it’s magnificent! A large model which is perfect scale for the animal figures. You get Lion, Lion cub, Zebra, Flamingo, Centipede, Snake, Monkey and scorpion included in the box, so you can play straight away and don’t need to buy additional items. The actual base comes in three parts which don’t fix together, but we quite like that as it means its easy to store away too. It also means more play factor as you can create even more scenes.
There is so many features on this set, the waterfall, rocks, plants, caves, and even the tree is designed so the monkey can break it in half. The plant detail is a great addition too, they really bring the set to life. Under the water is a fish design too. This set has so much detail, I love the different textures.
This set is such a great addition to our house, it has been played with every single day. As you can see, it is easily big enough for two or more children to play with together, it really is great for imagination play.
Overall we are really pleased with the Schleich Wild Life ‘Big Adventure at the Watering Hole’ playset, it is the same great quality as I am used to with Schleich, and it has created a whole new world of play for all our existing figures as well as inspiring some new additions too. This is the perfect present for any child who loves animals. The RRP is £69.99 but this is a quality item that Schleich is known to produce, it is large enough for many children and will last years. We adore it!
