The Proboscis Monkey from Schleich WILD LIFE is a primate that lives in rainforests and mangrove forests on the Asian island of Borneo. The males have a strikingly large nose that can be up to 10 cm long. But they dont have a strong sense of smell. Researchers believe that it is used to impress females. Proboscis Monkeys are day-active mammals who live in small groups and feed on leaves and fruits.
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.
