Our daughter has about one or two million Schleich animals, little plastic figures that vary in size depending on the animal but are typically 2-3 inches tall and 3-5 inches long. (There is a lot of variation — the meerkat is much smaller and the giraffe is taller.) They’re made very well with a lot of attention to detail. My daughter loves them — she calls them her “guys.”
As we started accumulating these things, I looked around last year to see if they made a Gnu (or Wildebeest), but was disappointed to find they had previously made them but they were now discontinued. I even wrote to the company to ask that they bring them back.
Well, they’re back! Apparently as of January this year. My wife found some yesterday at an area store and bought one for me. If you search Google for [schleich gnu] you’ll find several places selling them online. I like having a little Gnu on my desk, and thought some of you might want one also. (I also like that they call it a Gnu and not a Wildebeest, although I would have been happy to buy one going by that name as well.)
Now: go buy a bunch so they’ll keep making them.
