My 7 year old daughter Brooke is very girly, she loves pink glittery things and especially fairies. We were sent 4 figurines from the new Schleich Bayala range, and Brooke was mesmorised with them straight away.
For 2012 something magical is about to happen in Bayala. New children elves, fantasy animals, horses and unicorns are joining this mystical world from Schleich and encouraging the imagination of children.
The magical elves of Bayala, already a fascination to girls, have some new additions to the range in the form of children. These new young elves join the mystical world from Schleich and live in Bayala together with Pegasus, unicorns and many other animals.
Graceful and playful, the young elves will inspire and delight the imagination when released in May. There’s one extraordinary thing about them, they all have a special relationship with the natural plant world. Two favourites will be the Chestnut Elf who wears a skirt made of chestnut shells and another beautiful elf child that wears a dress made of delicate magnolia blossom.
Also new this May, the popular princess Eyela rides through the country on her magical white horse. She will be accompanied by two elves who gallop on their wonderful forest unicorns. And who knows, perhaps on their magical journey they may encounter the beautiful fantasy creature known as the Magical Asian being.
In the autumn, an Elf merry-go-round will further capture the imagination of children and will make an amazing centre piece to any treasured Bayala display
Included for Brooke was Lilenzarte Elfe, Blumenelfe, but Brooke has renamed them ‘Shooting Star Sophie’ the pegasus/unicorn, ‘Sleepyhead Max’, ‘beautiful Alice, and ‘Sparkly Ruby’. The detail of the figurines are amazing, from the glitter and finely crafted detail on the wings of the pegasus, through to the see through wings of the fairies.
Brooke has spent hours playing with her figures, creating a magical wonderland for them. It’s so endearing to watch her imagination taking the front seat instead of battery operated toys. As with all Schleich toys we have had the pleasure to own, they are fantastic quality and despite being played with hard, and even Brookes 2 year old brother deciding they had to be crushed by his combine harvester, they are still in tact and look as good as new. Brooke has more on her list for her Birthday, and seeing the play factor she is getting from these, I will definitely be buying her more.
We were sent four Schleich Bayala figures to review, all thoughts are our own.
