Mad About Ponies Craft Party – Review

Mad About Ponies Party Box is a party kit in a box for up to six children full of activities and fun!  Aimed at lasting for approximately one and half hours, it should keep a group of children occupied and entertained, whist having fun and games.

  • 6 Resin-cast ponies
  • Double sided foam sticky tabs
  • Pots of paint (5 colours)
  • Pre-printed card jumps
  • Paint brushes
  • Dice
  • Pencils
  • Score sheets
  • Pre-printed card rosettes

All children seem to love horses and the sight of paint pots is always a winner.  They couldn’t wait to get started and you can see my children below happily painting!

ponies 2I was really surprised at how much all the children loved getting artistic with their horses, really paying attention to detail with the colours.  They were all totally engrossed in their painting and produced some wonderfully painted horses!

ponies 3We then had some food while the paint dried on the horses.  Also supplied in the Mad About Ponies set were some cardboard fences, rosettes, sticky pads and a large dice.  We folded the fences in half and set them up in a star like shape as a course for the horses to jump around.

ponies 4Included in the party set are three game ideas along with six score cards and pencils.  The children were eager to mark down the names of their horses along with the scores.  We had lots of names such as Daisy,  Patch and Spotty!

The games were fun to play with the number you roll on the die determing whether you can jump a fence or not.  The children loved moving the horses around making cute noises and saying “giddy up”.

I think a really nice finishing touch for the end of the games is the rosettes for first and second place.  There are some little sticky squares included which can be stuck to the back of a rosette and then placed on the horses.  The children really loved these and they added to the fun.

Mad about Ponies is a really great party in a box, it has everything from a fun painting activity to games suggestions to play with the horses and some little accessories with the fences and rosettes.  I think all children would enjoy this and it’s nice that each child can take a horse home after that they designed themselves.

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the party set in order to write the review.

We are lucky to have the Fairy Princess Party and the Pirate Party boxes.  5yr old Miss M is thrilled – she’s a huge craft fan and can always be found making something.  She loves to be a princess but is also a huge pirate fan – in fact last week in her class at school it was pirate week and parents attended a lovely assembly to listen to all their songs and see all the things they’d made.  Miss M has invited a bunch of girls from her class who are all very excited about the prospect of a crafting party so we’re hoping it’ll be a big success with everyone.
