Together with the Boost Group, schleich® plans to develop environmentally friendly collectibles that raise awareness of the sustainable use of planet Earth and support children’s development through play.
Collectibles allow children to experience subjects related to nutrition, sports, play, nature and the environment as they play. Leading food retailers such as ALDI, EDEKA, ESSELUNGA, COOP and REWE seek to positive support for children and families by making quality toys and assortments accessible to all levels of society through loyalty programmes.
Figurines and playsets from schleich® open up invisible magical worlds for children. Every hippopotamus, every Tyrannosaurus Rex, every long-eared rabbit is the beginning of an exciting, ever-evolving story. Parents who watch their children play know: there is more to the schleich® brand than just toys. schleich® sparks new stories. schleich® stimulates the imagination and promotes creativity. When children play with schleich® figures, they are immediately in their own universe.
According to Udo Rother, Managing Director at schleich®, “we are impressed with the level of customer focus and flexibility, the leading edge in manufacturing sustainable products and the creativity for new concepts and theme worlds at Boost. True to our brand message “where stories begin”, we are looking forward to developing further success stories with Boost in the coming years.
