Schleich display at FAO Schwartz

For anyone not familiar, German toymaker Schleich makes quality, hand painted action figures.  Some of my favorites are the African safari animals, the whales and the sharks.  I saw this display last January at FAO Schwartz in its NYC flagship store on Fifth Avenue.  Schleich had recently released its Animal Nursery.  I love the structure and design of the piece.  It's made of plastic, but still looks pretty good.   Also, part of the roof comes off, which provides a good view into the model.

At the time I had only my camera phone, but was still able to capture the spirit of the piece.
