Schleich Wild Animals: Lion
Product informationA striking detailed figurine of a Lion. Lions roam the African savannah in families called prides that are made up of related females, their children, and a single male. When a male reaches adulthood he gets kicked out of the pride and has to go seek his own group.
Female lions hunt as a team. Together they can overpower large prey like zebras, buffalo, Giraffes, hippopotamuses, and even young elephants, but they're not above scavenging other animals' leftovers.
Lions sleep as much as twenty hours a day and both males and females defend their pride from any intruders. Lions' roars are really loud and can be heard up to five miles away! Lions roar to communicate with each other and to warn off intruders.
Males and females have light tan coats, but males have thick brown manes that grow larger and darker as they age.
Fun Facts: A lion may eat sixty-six pounds of food at one mealtime.

The company was founded by a man named Friedrich Schleich in 1935, but it wasn't until the 1950s that the first figurines were created, with a range of comic characters such as Snoopy, The Muppets and The Smurfs being released. The pride themselves on being a developer and supplier of top quality products with an educational aspect, as all their products are developed with the assistance of parents, teachers and children to ensure that they are designed for children’s hands.
The design of the Schleich products and the creation of the required tools are done in house, thus enabling them to control the initial vital steps of creating a new product. The production itself takes place at the company’s German headquarters and in a number of production facilities in foreign countries.
