The Anteater from Schleich WILD LIFE lives in the savannas and grasslands of Central and South America. The mammal feeds primarily on ants and termites. To get them out of their nests, the anteater bores in with its long snout, then sticks out its 60 cm long sticky tongue. Anteaters also have a bushy tail that looks bigger than it actually is due to the long hair.
Schleich products are made of various plastics and paints. These are carefully selected on the basis of the specific requirements. Among the most important plastics types we use are polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), actrylnitril butadiene styrene (ABS) and other typical plastics for toys. Starting at the material suppliers, there is strict scrutiny from our quality assurance representatives. The paints used are perfectly adapted to the various types of plastic and have the greatest mechanical and chemical resistance. They ensure that Schleich products last a long time and make all of our products resistant to perspiration, saliva and wear – meaning they are completely safe to play with. The product is released for production only when it meets all the laws, standards and guidelines.
