Is your pony not responding... press a button he has on the top of his tail to avoid a disappointed child.
8 April 2016
My 4 year old son asked for this toy for his Birthday.
This is a great toy of about 45cm approx. height but it does not stand up, as it's legs are soft. So the total height is reduced to 35cm approx. I would have personally preferred if the pony was able to stand up but no, the legs are floppy.
It has a soft fury material but the body is hard due to the mechanism inside.
This toy is very, very cute. I especially love his eyes (almond shaped) and the way it moves his little ears.
To turn it on you insert the batteries, switch the button in his belly to "on" (under the Velcro), press the sensor/button situated in the top of his tail for about 3 seconds and start interacting with him with the carrot, tapping his head, brushing him…
Please note when you receive it, once released and out of the box, it comes with no batteries.
So have a small star head screwdriver ready and 4 x AA batteries (standard big ones)
I have found the batteries to last for a month or so you better stock up and buy a big pack.
In case it helps, I bought a very good deal on Amazon, here's the link.
Kodak AA Xtralife Alkaline Battery (Pack of 60)
The noises it makes sound very realistic and if it wasn't because his ears sound (very mechanical) it would even be a very "real" experience
-If you want him to feel happy, hungry or sad - Use the magnet based toys.
The carrot and the brush that comes with the Pony
If your child's pony has never been scared / frightened or if you have a son like I do that wishes to see him shake in fear just for the sake on seeing everything his little Pony can do, then this are the steps to follow;
-You must play with him for a while, feed him, brush him etc…
-Then clap your hands and see him flap his ears all frightened (bless)
I must add it will not get frightened if you haven't previously played with him for a little while.
As an overall this is a good quality toy but I have found that my son has got bored of him just after a month's play. But never mind… that’s kids right?! ;)
Fun for our little ones
You must read the instructions or your child will not be able to turn it on and will feel disappointed
It would have been helpful if the box had the basics steps to "wake him" etc illustrated on the back
Would I buy this product again?
I hope my review has been helpful to you, thanks for reading.
