Schleich Toys, founded in 1935 by Friedrich Schleich, is one of the largest toy brands in Germany and an international leading supplier of figurines. Bendable doll Jopo was the brand's first toy sold, but the offering quickly expanded to Disney characters Bambi and Pluto and many other plastic figures made famous through television in the 1970’s. High-quality, realistic and hand-painted animal figures are at the heart of the company today.
