Ring-tailed lemurs are small monkeys with long, black and white curled tails. They are active during the day, live in small groups and like to cuddle up together. At night they sleep in trees. During the day they scavenge for fruit and leaves. The leader of a group of ring-tailed lemurs is always female. The only other animal groups led by females are hyenas and meerkats. Fun fact: When ring-tailed lemurs fight each other, they give off a powerful odour. The winner is the one with the strongest stench.
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.
