My daughter loved her new horse, it really is a beautiful looking toy, but considering the toy is made for children it should really be more sturdy. In short, while playing with this toy the main stick snapped, the poor design has the cross handle inserted through a hole in the main stem, creating a weak point and the stem that broke leaving a sharp pointed stick which stabbed my 4 year old daughter in the stomach. I am disgusted and upset that my daughter was hurt. I could design a much better, stronger handle myself and cannot believe how bad this product really is. I would like to add that following a detailed complaint to Amazon, they have not even had the courtesy or decency to reply or refund my purchase. Awful, Disturbing, Disgraceful service.

I am delighted with my purchase. Bought one for each of my daughters and adorned them with bells and ribbons. Very sturdy steeds.

I bought this for my 3 year old as she wanted a "pink horse"! Initially I was pleased, however after only a few hours of play she managed to pull out the handle bar, revealing a sharp nail!! I would return this, however she is now attached to macaroni pony and we don't want to risk this happening again, so we have removed the nail and secured the handle bar ourselves. I would not recommend this product on safety grounds.

This is a lovely toy. We had promised it to our soon to be three year old daughter who obviously hadn't quite got the concept of a hobby horse before it's arrival as her first response which caused amusement was "there's no seat!" Once she was given a quick demo she soon had some fun using it though be it not for long, but this is more likely to be down to my child and her age as she flits from one thing to another in no time. She is quite tall for her age but it was plenty big enough. My only gripe is that the woollen mane does shed small strands of fibre. This is nothing drastic but if like me you hate to see a bitty carpet especially being dark brown and plain,then think twice. I've just encouraged my little one to play more on the laminated floor where it poses no problems at all. It's good value for money and much better quality than the ones saw for sale at certain bookshop outlets. It did take until the latter estimated date rather than the earlier to arrive which in our experience is unusual when ordering from Amazon.

Ordered a cord hobby horse for my 4 year old son as a Christmas present last year and we were both absolutely delighted with it. The quality was good, a sturdy toy that has withstood many hours of fun. Based on this, decided to order another for a friends little boy's birthday this June. The horse that was delivered was disappointing and of inferior quality. The mane looked as if it had seen better days, tatty and falling out and the wheels were missing the rubber surrounds.
We decided not to return the horse as we didn't want to deprive a 3 year old of their birthday present but I would certainly think twice about ordering another one.

I bought this for my niece who described it as a horses head on a stick - hence the name Lollipop. She prefers other toys but I am led to believe she batters about the house on this.

Arrived really quickly and looks fab, well made and sturdy.
Love that it has little wheels at the bottom to help the running around, and reigns for pretend play

This is a nice solid wooden hobby horse. The head is made out of a very lovely cloth/corduroy. The mane is nice and soft. It's definitely worth the money.
