The pick up with horse box playset is perfect for taking horses along on days out. It contains a vehicle, a trailer, a horse, a groom, truck driver and lots of accessories for the horse. The playset does require some construction, mainly building the trailer, adding wheels to the car and sticker placement.
The playset is all very well made from quality plastics and seems to be able to withstand some harsh play. All of the doors and flaps on the trailer and truck open and close. The roof of the horse box can also be removed to accommodate 2 horses and there is a shelf for the bridle and reigns. The groom comes pre posed so she can hold the grooming brush, although her limbs don't move, the driver is also pre-posed and ready to sit in the vehicle.
Strangely the first thing Miss S did was attempt to move the figures arms and legs, she likes all of her toys to be mouldable to how she wants them and as these didn't they were cast aside in favour of the horse and trailer.
She happily played and moved the horse in and out of the horse box, she was easily able to open the back door of the trailer and enjoyed pushing it around on the movable wheels. She also took the grooming brush and one pint and groomed the horse herself, the brush is tiny so it's perfect for improving her fine motor skills that are still a little lacking in areas. She seemed happy with all the moving parts on the vehicle, she likes toys that 'do' and this satisfied that need. She even managed to get the driver into the front seat of the car once she had picked him up from the floor she discarded him on earlier! The set gets thumbs up from us, it is well made and great for your horse loving children, or if you already own part of the Schleich collection this is a great addition. The Schleich Horse Club Pick Up With Horse Box retails at £39.99 and is available from the Schleich Website.
