"At Schleich, we only seek to licence products with brands and characters we care about, which carry messages we believe in.

"Charlie Brown and the gang beautifully convey the wisdom and humour of children, and we promise that our figurines will capture the Peanuts spirit loved worldwide."

Leigh Anne Brodsky, MD of Peanuts Worldwide and Iconix Entertainment, added: "For 77 years, Schleich has been producing some of the most creative, beautiful, witty and charming figures in the world, and we know they will bring their signature touch to the Peanuts characters.
