The Schleich Farm World Range has a new edition… the Schleich Pony Agility Training Set (you can see my review of the Schleich T-Rex And Farm World Starter Set here).
Aimed at children aged 3-8 this set is full of fun obstacle and jumps, this set is perfect for giving your ponies some fun exercise to keep their brains sharp and their bodies in shape.
What’s In The Schleich Pony Agility Training Set?
- 2 ponies
- little girl trainer
- paddock fencing,
- small jump obstacles that can be adjusted into slalom poles,
- a ramp/see-saw (turn the ramp upside down to make a seesaw)
- training bridle
As with all Schleich products, the quality and attention to detail is fantastic.
The two ponies included are very different from each other. One is more solid, stocky and fury (or are horses called hairy?) with braided hair.
and the other is sleek with a shorter coat of hair and its mane and tail set to look like the pony is moving.
The little girl figure has a hat that comes off, with arms that move up and down and her legs swivel at the hips so she can sit down(the legs move together not independently)
The paddock clips together easily and there’s a sturdy gate that opens and shuts to let the ponies in and out. We added some sand to make it feel like a real training paddock.
All the equipment can be interchanged. The ramp can be turned upside down and uses as a seesaw and the poles, balloons and flags can be moved about. So, for example, the poles can be used on the cones and tree stumps to make either jumps or slalom poles, the flags added to the poles, even the hanging down coloured curtains could be put on poles and used as an obstacle or jump. the only limit is your imagination!
This is a great little set from Schleich that will provide endless hours of imaginary play if your child likes to use figures to play with. I really like how interchangeable all the parts are which makes this a toy that will be used in lots of different ways. And I particularly like how different the two ponies are.
The Schleich Pony Agility Training Set is available from Smyths Toys with an RRP of £24.99.
