This handsome wooden stable houses eight toy horses, each in its own stall. Swing open the stable doors to take them out for playtime, then put each one back in its stall until the next big horse show! The sturdy wooden stable box features a comfortable handle on the top, a child-safe metal latch on the wide wooden doors, and an illustrated breed guide on the bottom panel with information about each horse. Also includes write-on labels so kids can name each horse and label the stalls! Encourages creative play and learning. For ages 3+ years.
- Ask the child to give each horse a name. Write the names on the labels (included) and place them over the stalls.
- Ask the child to gather different collections of horses depending on rules you decide. For instance, you could ask the child to gather all the horses with spots, all the horses with white blazes, or all the horses with manes the same color as their tails.
- Read one of the breed descriptions, then show the child the picture and help identify the correct toy horse to match. Repeat until all the horses have been identified.
- Help the child create a big horse show with multiple events, such as dressage, show jumping and cross country. Use blocks or other toys to set up the different courses. Use ribbon or other craft supplies to make a blue ribbon for the winner!
