Schleich Horse Riding Arena
This week the girls received a lovely surprise in the post! a beautiful Horse Riding Arena by Schleich to review for the blog. This toy is from the Farm Life range.
When Amelie got home from Ballet she couldn't wait to open it up. Assembling the toy only took a few minutes, i laid it out all neatly to perfection but of course Amelie wanted to do it her own way!
Amelie enjoyed placing the rider on the Horse and pretending the Horse was in the Grand National!
Later on we let Lottie join in the game too, Lottie enjoyed playing with it just as much. She quite liked the Horses little coat and the reins.
What they thought
The girls continued to play with the set for around an hour or so, it is a toy that they often get out of the cupboard to play when they get home from School.
They just love toys like this, we will probably soon buy some more Horses to join our Arena.
What I thought
Play sets like this one I expect to be good quality sturdy toys that will last for many years to come. This is the first Schleich toy we have owned, i often admire the little Animals made by Schleich in our local toy shop so it's lovely to be able to see the toy for myself at home.
I was very impressed with this set. The arena itself seems to be sturdy, made to last! The Horse is beautiful and so very life like, made from high quality plastic to the highest standard.
The rider sits on the Horse and stays on when her feet are slotted into the foot rests on the Horse's saddle. She can even hold onto the reins!
I like realistic toys like this. The windows on the roof top all open and stay open which is lovely.
The little fences slot together and stay together unless pulled apart.
This set in available from all good toy stores priced around £26.99 a fantastic price for such a good quality play set.
