** Price has been raised at Amazon to $17.53, which while not $14.22, is still a hot price.**
Amazon has a hot deal on a Schleich animal set that you won't want to miss. These toys are notoriously high-priced, although well worth that high price as they are phenomenal quality. This farm set at Amazon was regularly $29.99 and now on sale for $14.22.
If you click the link, you might see the title of children's zoo play set, but that is actually a mistake as you can see in the photo, it is the farm set. The description says this toy is new for 2015, but I couldn't find it anywhere else. Either way, as I said, this brand can be expensive so this is a really great price.
I have quite a few Schleich animals and I can attest to their good quality and detail. These are flimsy dollar store animals, they have some heft to them and are hard plastic so they are very durable. Plus, they have every detail that you'd expect the real animal to have.
This set includes a calf, lamb, goat, baby rabbits, fruit and vegetables, a feed basket and paddock fencing.
I love this toy because it really encourages imaginative play and if your child loves animals, they will be thrilled to get this set and the age of the child really doesn't matter. I've seen my oldest play with these animals and my youngest.
Just to give you some ideas on pricing of these types of sets, Costco has an 11-piece set with fairly larger animals, but basically the same amount of pieces for $79.99. These sets are not usually sold at stores like Walmart or Toys r Us I think because of the higher price point. Stores like Mastermind Toys carry Schleich, but generally as each animal and as you can see, they start at about $5 each.
Shipping will be free once you reach $25, so you might see what other toys are available on sale. Amazon sells quite a bit of Schleich and this horse stable Christmas advent calendar setis pretty cool. Regularly $49.99, it is on sale for $45.99.
