My DD is a bit obsessed with being a horse (or a cat), I have made her a tail and she likes galloping. Anybody seen a nice hobby horse (with sounds maybe?) that we could get for her birthday? PIL's are paying, so under £20 if poss, if not we'll pay extra.

There's a pretty floral one in The White Company for £30.

Can you link me to the Ikea one please?

I have seen them from ebay from a company called Merrythought. The company itself has now gone bust but you can pick up second hand ones in good nick, my DD is besotted with hers. Your DD would need to make her own sounds though!

Oh Ruby - I googled 'Ikea Minnen Hobby Horse' and there it was but cannot find it on the Ikea site. Perhaps it has been discontinued or is a Christmas Item only. Sorry.
