Review: Schleich Horse Club

I have to admit I cringe a little bit each time my kids catch a commercial when they're watching a children's show on TV. Inevitably, they want whatever it is being displayed, and whatever it is, is usually junk. It's truth time around here! I feel like Husband and I can pat ourselves on the back, though, because I think/hope we've done a good job of discovering and buying well-made toys for our children. Classic items that perhaps we had as kids (cue nostalgia).

Schleich is one of those companies. One of Germany's largest toy manufacturers, it's been around for the last 80 years. That tells me they're doing something right! The little Schleich doggie I had as a little girl was a favorite of mine until he was tragically lost, but that's a sad story for another time (sniffle sniffle). In happier news, my girls have discovered Schleich, too. Their first figurine came from a friend, and we've slowly added to their collection over time.


So naturally, I said yes when I was invited to a campaign promoting their toys. My girls received a Horse Club set, which includes a Riding Arena, Horse Wash Area and Arabian Mare with Blanket. Like the majority of little girls, they love everything that has to do with horses, so this collection has been a huge hit! Everything was very simple to put together, and the attention to detail is truly impressive.


I've so enjoyed watching them play with their new horses and accessories. One of the many joys of parenting is watching your children's imagination grow, so I love seeing how they create individual stories for their horses (one day they're sisters, one day it's a mama and her children, one day the horses can fly!) and of course, learning to take care of something by making sure they are underneath the riding ring at night and have gotten a good bath. Too cute! And at a price range of $12.99-$34.99, it's an affordable product, too.

Geared towards ages 5-12, Schleich's Horse Set is perfect for kids who love animals, and as I've seen, really encourages imaginative play and taking care of something other than oneself. I just hope the girls are luckier than me and will be able to pass down their horses to their own kids one day!
