A toucan’s beak grows to a length of up to 20 cm and is four times larger than its head. Although it looks very heavy, it is actually very light since it is hollow inside. When it is very hot, the bird sends blood into the fine veins in the beak where it cools down before flowing back into the body.Fun Fact: Toucans can’t fly very well. They usually move by hopping
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.
