Schleich at George at Asda: Tyrannosaurus Rex figure & Farm World Starter Set review

Toys & games

You will probably know by now that we love Schleich figures. Realistic and fabulously tough for serious play, Schleich have been going a long time and their hand painted figures are just as popular today as they were when they started in 1935.

Schleich are thrilled to announce that a range of their figures will now stocked by George at Asda.

Although you’ve been able to find them on the shelves of most local toy shops and of course online for many years, this exciting partnership will open the figures up to a brand new audience of parents who never actually get to browse unless they are doing the weekly shop.

To celebrate, we were sent a Tyrannosaurs Rex and a Farm World Starter Set.

Schleich Tyrannosaurus Rex

The T-Rex is, as you’d expect, quite a big figure. At over a foot long from nose to the tip of his tail and 5.5 inches tall, he’s the biggest Schleich dinosaur we have.

He has a movable jaw for roaring a fearsome roar (or squeaking, which has amused us no end), big clawed feet which stand him on the floor, and small hands (which don’t move) for playing the piano or whatever they did with them.

The Schleich T-Rex is a beautifully crafted toy; the plastic is moulded with remarkable attention to detail; he feels lumpy and scaly like a dinosaur (probably) should (I haven’t actually touched a real one).

As with all Schleich figures, the fine detail is painted by hand.

If you have a little dinosaur lover at home who would love this T-Rex figure,  you can currently buy him from George at Asda for £15.97 here.

Be aware that he is very solid and heavy, so is recommended from children 3+ who won’t use him to beat siblings around the head with.

Schleich Farm World Starter Set

The Farm World Starter Set would make a brilliant gift as it’s boxed (i.e easy to wrap which I’ll tell you now, the T-Rex would not be) and contains not one but four different Schleich farm animal figures;

A woolly sheep,

And a handsome cockerel.

As with the entire Schleich figure range, the farm animals are extremely lifelike with handpainted detail.

Size-wise they’re not as big as the dinosaur; in face they’re all to scale so you can play with them together and collect more realistic animal figures to fill up your farm and maybe even have a dinosaur invasion.

Sorry Mr Cockerel.
