Cheetahs are the fastest land animals in the world. With their slim bodies and powerful, long legs, they can accelerate up to 120 km/h within a few seconds.
Cheetahs are excellent hunters. First of all they approach their prey very carefully until they are within a few metres, then when the time is right, they run at lightning speed. If the fleeing prey suddenly changes direction, the Cheetah can simply turn its body mid-leap. Its flexible spine makes this possible. However, if they have no success after a few hundred metres, they have to give up. The high speed is so energy-sapping, they can only keep it up for a short distance.
More about Schleich
The complete production process for Schleich figurines, from the design of the models to the finished product, takes an average of three to four months. Many different stages must be completed – each involving loving attention to detail and the highest quality standards – before the famous hand-painted and uniquely realistic Schleich figurines are finished and ready to be played with by children around the world.
Materials: Each Schleich figurine has its own base colour, the recipe for which is uniquely developed using various PVC-based pigment mixes of varying degrees of hardness. All production substances and materials used undergo chemical checks in advance.
Hand Painting: Every Schleich figurine is hand painted. The only exception occurs in the case of large patterns – for example the brown patches on a giraffe – which are applied via a pad printing process. Otherwise, the careful, step-by-step process of hand painting each figurine with sponges, brushes and airbrushes is a great display of painstaking craftsmanship. In order to keep the colour of each figurine identical across all production runs, each tone has its own individual recipe that stipulates the pigment proportion of up to nine base colours and is mixed in-house. Mixing its own colours not only helps Schleich ensure consistency between all its tones, but also means it can guarantee that the paints it uses are safe. The colours undergo strict quality inspections both during purchasing and after the painting process in the form of light, heat, abrasion and chemical tests. Only once they have passed these tests the finished figurines receive the famous Schleich flag with the red “S” and are ready to be dispatched.
