We have reviewed a few toys from the Schleich range before. The twins love all the animal ranges. Jack also loved his Thor figure and it has pride of place next to his bed. We have enjoyed playing with the Schleich Croco Jungle Research Station this week and all three boys have had lots of fun.
The Croco Jungle Research station is one of the larger Schleich play sets in the Wildlife range costing around £99.99. The set comes in a huge box and has lots of parts which you need to construct. It was easy to put together and didn’t take too long probably about 20 minutes. The instructions are really easy to follow and the boys sat and watched as I popped it all together helping when they could.
First section to construct is the hut that sits up on legs. It’s really simple to all click together. The boys enjoyed passing me the pieces to construct it. The instructions are really easy to follow so an older child could easily follow them and build it.
Once the house is built everything else is just cosmetics that make your jungle camp what you want it to be. There is the compound which can be shaped how you choose. You can also add the gates onto the compound sides to make it bigger if you choose.
The boys loved playing with the Crocodile head and making up their own adventures. They play really nice together and really enjoyed hiding things in the crocodiles head. They also enjoyed pretending to have their hands eaten by the big crocodile. Which created lots of screams and giggles.
Like with other Schleich toys we have reviewed the quality is exceptional. Its extremely well made and sturdy. As a parent I like to spend my money on toys I know will last there is nothing worse than a toy that breaks or doesn’t last. Some Schleich items are on the higher side of the budget but I know that every item we have will last lots of hours playtime. We have lots of Schleich animals that are years old and have been played with buy 3 generations of family now and are still going strong.
You can buy Schleich toys direct from their website or you can get lots of the ranges from good toy shops and also amazon.
