The Swan from Schleich FARM WORLD has a pronounced black knob at the base of its beak. Mute refers to the fact that this species is less vocal than other swan species. The large birds are part of the water fowl order and prefer to live by lakes and ponds. They feed on water plants and small animals. When foraging for food they dabble with their long necks and heads in the water. Once a year they molt to get rid of their old plumage and renew their feathers.
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.
