Welcome to Animal Kingdoms and our Schleich Retired 2020 Preview... this is a list of everything that Schleich stopped production of mid-end of 2019, and we will see disappear from the line in 2020.

Every year with the exciting announcements of what new Schleich to expect in 2020, we must also say goodbye to many loved models in the process.

All these Schleich models will have all production finished by the beginning of Jan 2020, so ensure you get any of those missing from your collection before they become hard to source new.

Released:  
Production finished: 30th June 2019

The Schleich Western saddle and bridle was brought out in close succession to the popular Western riding set with horse and rider. This gave customers the ability to use western tack on other horses.

Some breeds are more commonly used in western riding, such as Quarter Horses, Quarter Horse crosses, Paints. Some would be less common, such as Thoroughbreds, Standardbreds, and Lippizans, for instance. However this tack set made it possible for all Schleich horses to become western riding star.

One of the few riding sets brought out for the Schleich Ponies, this tack set has been a staple for the ponies of horse club. With this set retired, it will not be possible to buy a pony saddle and bridle unless it is purchased through the Schleich Horse Club Mia & Spotty set, which includes Mia, her pony and accessories, as well as the tack. We wouldn't be surprised to see the tack from this come out separately in future.

The Schleich forest animal babies set was also released in 2017 for the wild life range. This set matched up with the Forest Dwellers Pack North American boxed set. Its black bear cub (exclusive addition available only in the box set,) and moose calf naturally matched with the black bear and moose adults in the Forest Dwellers Pack North American. So these sets retiring together makes perfect sense.

Production finished: 30th June 2019

While only in production for a year, the Unicorn standing was based on a long standing Schleich unicorn sculpt. The Schleich bayala line has had a influx of beautiful new sculpts released over the past two years, so it is understandable that this model has been replaced.

Another Bayala creature that has completed its run. 2016 introduced some unusual Bayala additions that brought real imagination to the range. However with the Bayala movie and a new story coming out, it is time for these older models to be withdrawn.

Production finished: 31st Dec 2019

Last year we saw the retirement of the Schleich Star Companion with Feed set, which included both Femaja's butterfly foal and Venuja's pearl foal. So naturally it was expected that both these foals would do the same soon after.

Schleich Giant Volcano with Exclusive Tyrannosaurus Rex  42305
 
Measurements: 55 x 16 x 37.6 cm boxed  

Released: 2016 
Production finished: 30th June 2019

The Schleich giant volcano set is an amazing set and did what few other models have been able to achieve, bring the world of dinosaurs to life with a active volcano. It is highly interactable and had wonderful reviews. However it is a large set and the clips holding it together could break unusually easily for a Schleich product. Being so solid and large, it also took up considerable space. Which may be why this set has now been retired. It still holds true as our favourite dinosaur set from any brand however. 

With its retirement comes the possible last chance for collectors to get the Exclusive blue Tyrannosaurus Rex that came with this set.

Released: 2017 
Production finished: 31st Dec 2019

The kentrosaurus has been a long standing member of the prehistoric line, with this 2017 model replacing a previous kentrosaurus sculpt. So it seems natural for this line to have a rest.
