Schleich Braided Horse Figurines – Review

We received six braided horse figurines from the ‘World of Nature’ range by Schleich new to the collection in 2013.  These horses have been created with realistic attention to detail and all come positioned in a dynamic pose.

                                           They are aimed at girls aged between 5 and 8, so with Miss M being 5 she was the perfect age to try them out.  My first impression was the beauty of the intricate detailing and likeness to real life.  They are made to an exceptionally high quality making them very durable and definitely toys that stand the test of time.  They range in size from 9-12cm tall.

The detail on them is amazing and I sat with Miss M and we looked at each one picking out the little intricacies, like the red roses on the tail of one, the little plaits and pink ribbon on another to the silver horse shoes detail on another one.  They are all beautifully designed with gorgeous braided detail.

Miss M found these a joy to play with and they easily integrated into play with other toys and even joined us at the dinner table!!  Two year old Mister B even showed an interest and commandeered the small black foal as his own to carry around.

Overall these are high quality animals that would give a lot of play value in a variety of situations.  A durable product with lasting play value over a good range of ages.

RRP: Stallion: £5.99; Mare: £5.99; Foal: £3.99

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions. We are not paid for reviews although we do receive the product to try out and enable us to write the review.

      These have proved much more fun with my 2 than I thought they would be. They spark all kinds of imaginative play.
