I grew up on a smallholding so have been surrounded by farm animals including ponies all my life. My mum kept horses and ponies her whole life. It was how she met my dad, by asking to buy some hay from him! So when I was a kid I had my own toy farm sets, rather than dolls. Now my daughter is getting older shes full of questions and has been asking about ponies and wanting to go and have a ride. My mum tells her all about the ponies she had and shows her photos. So it seems I have a pony mad little girl on my hands.
Getting the chance to have a look at a high-quality play set like this Pony Agility Training set from Schleich has made her day. It’s a fantastic set to introduce younger children to ponies and into the whole Farm World Collection.
The traditional farm horses have new breeds to discover plus a bright new Pony Agility Training Set to put them through their paces. Launching in April, there’s everything you need to train and have fun with your ponies, including paddock fencing, small jump obstacles that can be adjusted, a see-saw and more; an articulated child figure is included to help lead the horses.
Set Up P
The Schleich Pony Agility Training Play Set was very neatly packaged when it arrived. All the main pieces were delicately wrapped to protect bits from breaking. This shows a very high quality to me. But then you can tell it’s of high quality due to the heavy nature of the parts. The ponies are very heavy and detailed for their size!
There are lots of parts to help train your ponies. From obstacles and jumps to a seesaw that can be used as a ramp as well.
The gates take a bit of snapping together and unsnapping for putting away. The set is recommended for 3-8-year-olds so I would say the top age range would find it much easier. The younger ones would need some help as my 3-year-old did.
There is a fantastic instruction booklet included. It gives details about each individual piece and how to put the pieces together. You also have a small sticker sheet included placing on a couple the parts.
It’s a great starter set to the Schleich Farm World play sets and pieces or a fantastic addition if you are already a collector. You may find your kids go on to then be interested in the Horse Club range after they
It’s truly a lovely play set to keep younger kids entertained and their imaginations run wild. It will be one to cherish for many years to come.
The Schleich Pony Agility Training Set is available from Smyths Toys for £24.99.
