I’m pretty sure that my daughter fell in love with horses after her first pony ride. She grinned from ear to ear and gazed lovingly at that gentle animal. Teagan is also very curious of the horseback riders at the park that we live near. She states, “I want to ride one.” She’s not quite ready for horseback riding (neither is my wallet) but I recently learned about MGA Entertainment’s new line called Moxie Girlz Horse Riding Club. Could these dolls and horses be the perfect toy for my young equestrian lover?
First, the dolls. There are three different Moxie Girlz dolls to choose from. Each doll is dressed in a different contemporary horseback riding outfit. Outfits are complete with riding boots and hat. We received Avery who is blonde with blue eyes. She wears two ponytails (my daughter is a fan of pony tails!) and is fashionable in a short sleeved top and cute green/black plaid pleated skirt. The dolls are for girls 3+ and retail for $14.99.
Second, the horses. There are two Horse Riding Club Horses to choose from. Cricket (Palomino) and Bingo (Brown). What’s so special about these horses outside of their good looks? They walk and make horse sounds! The horses retail for $34.99 and take four AA batteries.
What did Teagan think? She was tickled pink to test out the pair and see Cricket walk. We popped in the batteries and Teagan set up the pair for a ride. Avery was posed and hung on the straps as Cricket clicked along. Unfortunately the horse tipped over walking on our carpet. I’d suggest placing the horse on a hard, smooth surface for a better ride. The horse stops on its own after 11 seconds or so. You would then need to reactivate the horse. This is perfect for saving battery life but I do wish that the horse walked a farther distance. Overall, Teagan has enjoyed the Avery and Cricket! She likes brushing both Avery and Cricket’s hair and has fun watching the pair trot around. I encourage her to take care of her new horse and to “practice” riding with them.
These toys would make a fun holiday gift for your animal lover! You can complete the set with the Moxie Girlz Horse Riding Club Stable which comes with a pony! The toys are available at Target, Toys R US, amazon.com and other department stores!
