All Schleich figures are lovingly hand-painted with detailed modelling and allow children to understand as they play. The word "kangaroo" comes from the language for the Aborigines, Australia’s indigenous people. It basically means "I don’t understand", which was the answer given to British navigator James Cook when that he asked what the pet was. What a misunderstanding! These marsupials have a kind of rubber musical organization in their hind legs. It propels them upwards with each jump. The faster a kangaroo bounces, the farther the animal is "catapulted" forwards, and the less energy it uses. Giant red kangaroos can grow up to three metres tall and that can hop twelve metres.
