This Year, Fill Their Easter Baskets with Schleich!


Disclosure: This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Schleich.
I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.

As Easter quickly approaches, I see many people heading to their local shops trying to grab their plastic eggs that they'll soon fill with candy for their kids to search for on Easter Sunday. I'm here to tell you that there's a better way to fill your kid's Easter Baskets this year and that's with Schleich!



Schleich (Pronounced Shh-Like) was founded in 1935 and has been bringing figurines to life since the 1950's. In the 1980's, Schleich added animal figurines to their famous figurine line including the Smurfs, Snoopy, and the Muppet Show. Schleich animal play worlds span from the lost time of the dinosaurs to domestic and wild animals of the present day. To Facilitate this review, we were sent the Farm World and Farm Life sets which feature amazingly realistic and naturalistic animals on a smaller than life scale.


Gabby Loves to hunt for hidden eggs, so I thought why not open up these fun packs and have her hunt for some of the Animals and foods that I've hidden within each egg? She's only 4 so I thought hiding them would take her forever to find, but she LOVED the mystery especially since she knew what she was searching for. It was sort of like an Easter Scavenger hunt except you won't know what you've found until you open the eggs. 


If it were up to Gabby, we'd be at the Zoo each and every day. She gets really excited when she gets to play with any animal figurines and I applaud Schleich for all the details they put into such Tiny things. My favorites from the two sets we received have got to be the Baby Chicks from Farm World and the bunnies in the hollow tree from the Farm Life set. We had lots of fun with these Schleich play sets, they definitely made our Baskets fun!



Other Schleich play worlds now include the Wild West and the fantasy realms of medieval knights and elves. As with the ones we received, Schleich animal play worlds are a true reflection of nature on a smaller scale and are as realistic and naturalistic as possible!

  1. I never would have thought of putting Schleich toys inside of Easter eggs. What a clever idea to break up larger sets. I can see kids getting really excited over this idea instead of just candy in all of the eggs.

  2. That's so neat! I think putting little Schleich toys inside of Easter eggs is a great idea! It's a lot better than just feeding them a ton of sugar.

  3. That is adorable! My sister-in-law has children just right for this idea! I hope that next Easter I will be there in I can do something like this for them.

  4. Aww! This is such a cute idea. I rarely give candy at Easter and was stuck as to what to stuff in my daughter's Easter Baskets.

  7. I absolutely love unconventional Easter basket ideas! These are the kind of toys I grew up on and the kind I bought for my kiddos! It does not always have to be about the candy. Candy is great sure but some kids can't have candy such as my daughter who has type 1 diabetes. Sure she gets some candy now and then but toys are so much better! Love this idea of Schleich toys for Easter!

  12. Schleich is a name I am not familiar with but I am familiar with the animal farm sets by another brand. I will have to share this post with my nieces ad sister for their kids. The Schleich Farm World and Farm Life sound like great gift ideas too.

  13. How fun is this?! My daughter loves animals. Especially farm animals. She would freak out, in a good way, if I did something like this! Thanks for the idea!

  14. I love this idea. I think it's great to put some toys in there. I hate that candy is such a thing with Easter baskets. I'd rather put toys and such in all my daughters baskets.

  15. I love this idea. Kids don't need all the candy and sugar that usually fills those plastic Easter egg. My son would love these farm items.

  17. My kids love Schleich toys! Their favorite Christmas present was a Schleich safari set. Didn't think about doing an Easter Egg hunt with their miniature animals. Will have to keep that in mind for next year.
