Default Schleich's Dragonrider Toys

Schleich, the German sculpt company best known for making nice heavy animal models for children, has in recent years expanded their line to an extensive fairy kingdom lineup. There have always been dragons and unicorns to go with, including one of the bad fairies 'hawking' with a little dragon on her fist that I've always thought could be made Pernese without effort.

Get a look at this guy in their new Dragonrider line, though:

This is the closest to Pern toys I think we'll see for a while.

We have some Schleich knights and animals for Matt, and they really are quality stuff. I'm hoping he'll branch out into other figures as he gets older.
