I’m always on the look out for new toy brands for the kids to try, however as the kids are getting older this is some what proving more and more difficult. Recently I was lucky enough to come across Schleich, which is a brand we hadn’t come across before but had heard lots of good things about how their toys are great for kids imaginations. They were kind enough to offer to send us one of their latest toys the Schleich Bayala Mermaid With Turtle which looked lovely and with Little S being a huge mermaid fan we couldn’t wait for it to arrive.
The Schleich Bayala Mermaid is priced at £14.99 and is aimed at kids age 5 and up so was the perfect toy for Little S. The set comes with a mermaid, a baby turtle, a beautiful shell, a music instrument and a fern. All the accessories were lovely and really made the toy that extra bit special, however Little S favourite accessory out of all of them had to be the opening and closing Mermaids Shell. Not only was the Shell all pretty and sparkly but also could be used to store other little treasures that Little S deems precious to her.
I was really impressed with the design of the mermaid figurine, I thought she was going to be a solid statue meaning that maybe Little S wouldn’t get that much fun out of playing with her. I was surprised to discover though that she actually has movable arms and the accessory shes holding can be swapped this made it a lot more easier and fun for Little S to play with her.
Since coming across the Shleich and seeing how much Little S enjoyed playing with the mermaid I decided to see what other toy products they offer. I was happy to find that there is in fact a whole range of Shleich Bayala Products from Sea Unicorns to other Mermaids to even a Royal Seashell Carriage all of which look magical and would provide a great way to kids to use there imagination and get creative. I can see were definitely going to be investing in some more of the range now Little S has had a peek at what else there is to offer.
Have you come across the toy brand Schleich before?
