Schleich Horses Range

My kids love horses, most probably something I have passed on to them from growing up surrounded by them. Therefore I knew they would love to have the opportunity to review the fantastic Schleich horses range which is so true to life and full of amazing details that I was seriously impressed. Schleich clearly don't cut any corners when it comes to reproducing real life animals and their accessories in toy form.

We were sent the Horse Feeding Playset and the Eventing Rider set and oh how they bring back memories for me. The Eventing Rider comes complete with a beautiful horse, rider figure, saddle and bridle, the rider definitely looks set to take part in the next big event. 

The Horse Feeding playset is very well designed with paddock fences that click together and can be configured, a beautiful Trakehner stallion and his little foal, a girl figure, carrots, hay and a feed basket that hangs on the paddock. This combination of pieces opens up an amazing and endless world of play and imagination, with a different story and adventure to be told each day.

Horses at Play

The twins have certainly been kept entertained playing with these horse playsets. They love clicking together the paddock and then putting the horses inside and feeding them carrots and hay. I love watching and listening to them as they play, they very cutely offer them carrots and play games with them. They play hide and seek with the little foal hiding behind the bales of hay and the daddy and mummy horse search to find him. It has given me the opportunity to explain to them what a bridle and saddle is and how a rider uses them which I'm sure will impress their horse obsessed Grandad when next they see him. 

Our Verdict

Having grown up with horses and familiar with all things equestrian I can honestly say these play sets are of amazingly high quality and without a doubt true to real life. It is a joy to watch the children play with them and see their imaginations fire as they invent stories and play. I can definitely recommend both the Horse Feeding Playset and the Eventing Rider which are available to buy from Amazon and the usual toy retailers.
