The Schleich figurines are all modelled in finest detail and encourage children to play and learn at the same time. Maine-Coon cats are large and heavy, but very calm, balanced cats with a noble, long coat. That's why they are often referred to as gentle giants. Maine Coon cats do not lay around all day, but love to roam the countryside. They are not afraid of water either - on the contrary, they even love it.
