Lovely soft pony
on 25 January 2009
Father Christmas bought "Honey" for my 9 year old daughter this Christmas and it has become one of her favourite toys.
Firstly, Honey is beautifully soft and tactile and just the right size for a cuddle on someone's lap. She feels silky to touch and has a sweet face. She's very slightly out of proportion with a big head and little legs but this doesn't bother my daughter.
Honey - like FurReal toys - has various pressure points (on her back, on her nose, and inside her mouth) which make her move her head, nuzzle into you, whinny, and make a crunching noise as if she's munching a carrot. She comes with a carrot which you pop inside her mouth.
Slightly misleadingly, I thought from the picture on the box that she opened her mouth herself, but she doesn't. Her mouth is quite stiff to begin with and you feel as if you're forcing the carrot into her mouth. You also have to get the carrot into just the right place to make her make the munching sound, so don't worry if you don't get it first time.
I'd have liked her to do a bit more for the money, perhaps swish her tail or open her mouth, but my daughter is just delighted with her, so that's the main thing!
She's certainly been a well-loved toy so far and by the way she gets tenderly tucked up at night, I'd say she's not likely to be a flash in the pan, so highly recommended.
