DD has just turned two, her latest thing is horses - shouts "horsey" at everything horse shaped. Can anyone suggest a good horse-based toy please, I cant find anything in ELC that jumps out at me and the Happyland stables are going for silly money on Ebay at the moment as I've left it bit late. Thanks for any ideas.

Melissa and Doug Pasture Pals is a collection of 12 small horses, with a box for them to live in, DD2 (also 2) loves it. Only thing is they are fuzzy and have furry tails and manes so not suitable if she might chew them. Otherwise gorgeous.

hobby horse? I bought one at a National Trust shop for a two year old recently.

Rocking horse?
Real horse/pony? (Not really).

Dd 18mo had a pony from a charity shop . I checked the make and it's strawberry stables and fudge the pony .

Amazon don't currently sell it but it could be found on gumtree maybe ? I saw a couple of links . It looks like a great wee set in full ! I had a look on google to see if I could find it but no luck !

Hope you find something nice smile

Look at the schleich range they do all animals and horses and a stable I think.

We have a huge collection of schleich animals built up over the years, all kids have loved them and they last.

B & M do a couple of nice horse sets for a very reasonable price.

Sorry I forgot to mention we do have a rocking horse already, its a bit basic and I would love to get her a nicer one but the one we have is a family hand-me-down from MIL and would cause ructions if I got a new one. Dontlaugh I cant believe I didnt think of My Little Pony though - I loved them as a kid! Will also have a look at the Pasture Pals, thanks again.

I know my mum is getting the DC a Schleich farm for Christmas which I hope will have a horse or two in it, but want to see what it comes with before I add any extra horses to it. Plus she will have to share with DS so hoping to get DD her own horsey-based present.

My daughter has a horse toy from alimrose designs it is beautiful - there are all different patterns my daughter has a yellow one they are expensive but it's treasured

My dd has a hand puppet that is a horse with a rider on it, she loves that, not sure what make it was but it was from hobbycraft.

I thought the My Little Pony would be my favourite - but now I've googled them and my 80's-brain can't get over how weird and spaced out they now look!

I second the Melissa and doug pasture pals. Or a Shetland pony ride?

5madthings Sun 30-Nov-14 22:02:12

All the lottie stuff is lovely. Dd is going to have quite a collection after Xmas. Also if you sign up to the lottie club on Fb you will get special offers at the moment.

A Shetland pony ride!! Would they put a 2 yr old on a Shetland? She's pretty dinky for her age but I love that idea Vijac . All these ideas are ace and toys I had never heard of before. Poor DD is the youngest so she gets a lot of hand-me-downs, she is going to love some of these!! Thanks all flowers

Amazon have a "trotting pony" which is battery operated like one of those dogs on leads she may like?
