Silly Billy’s has been stocking Schleich for a long time now and it is one of our core lines, it is one of the best places to buy Schleich in Yorkshire. We have written about Schleich before and it is a very popular product in our Toy Shop. After the floods of Boxing Day 2015 and during Silly Billy’s Start-Up we were given a new Schleich Stand and it is illuminated.

We have the lighting on a timer and you can clearly see the stand at night-time in our new shop location.

Some History Of Schleich

Schleich was founded by Friedrich Schleich in 1935 in Schwäbisch Gmünd . Its figurines were first released in the 1950s with the development, production and marketing of comic figurines such as Snoopy and The Smurfs, the Schleich Smurfs are still manufactured today and we have tried stocking them here at Silly Billy’s, although they did not prove too popular, so we stopped!
In the early 1980s Schleich added animal figurines and Muppet characters to their range of products. Until the end of 2006, Schleich was a family-owned business. It was then taken over by the British investment company HgCapital, who paid 165 million euro for an 80% share.

Design, Production and Materials
The design of products and the creation of tooling is mostly in-house. Production is at the German headquarters and in production facilities in foreign countries, with the figures being hand-painted in China. In 2006, Schleich had about 250 employees and a yearly sales figure of around 80 million Euro.
