Wombats are small marsupials that live on the Australian continent. Their body shape doesn’t make them look agile but they can be surprisingly fast. When they’re not grazing the small mammals live underground, where they dig tunnels and burrows. To do this they have rodent-like teeth and wide paws with sickle-shaped claws, just like the wombat from schleich® WILD LIFE.
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.
