Raccoons are small but intelligent predatory animals. They learn very quickly and have a good memory. They are active at night, when they feed on small animals such as insects, beetles, worms, fish, but also on plants, fruits and nuts. Before winter arrives, raccoons eat enough to put on a thick layer of body fat. Fun fact: With their slender fingers, raccoons can even lace up shoes.
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.
