|Quelle and Schleich Kwak Toys|
Both Schleich and Quelle branded Alfred J. Kwak toys are available. Quelle is a German mail order house. Some products sold by Quelle are produced by an OEM (original equipment manufacturer). Schleich is the OEM for Quelle's Alfred J. Kwak toys.
Sometimes, Kwak toys in Quelle catalogs are depicted with alternate colorings from what eventually ends up for sale. This is because Quelle catalogs occasionally feature pre-production versions of products. The apperance of the finished toy can change during the catalog's "lead time" - the time between when the catalog is produced and when the items are available. Decisions can be made during this "lead time" that ultimately change what is released from what you see in the catalog. There are times when an item in the catalog isn't released at all!
