Toy-horse is relevant for children of any age
Choosing a toy for a child is not as simple as it seems. Dolls, cars, animal figurines ... The assortment of modern shops makes the eyes run in different directions. And almost always on the shelves there is a huge selection of horses of different colors and sizes.
A toy-horse is available for almost every child. Kids are perfectly suited for rocking horses with semicircular skids and handles on the head, on which you can swing, simultaneously training the vestibular apparatus and coordination of movements. Such toys can be made of plastic, wood or plush (artificial fur). Each option has its advantages and disadvantages. Fur horses are very soft and pleasant to the touch, they usually like kids, but they collect a lot of dust, they are difficult to wash. In cheap market toys, the fur fibers are not firmly fixed, so they climb with cracks, which is not at all useful for crumbs. Plastic horses are lightweight, they can be easily wiped or washed. However, the plastic is easily scratched, it can form chips (especially in instances of not too high quality). A wooden toy-horse is what is called a classic of the genre. It is durable and stable, but heavier than most plastic and fur options.
In addition to horse-rocking, there are horse-wheelers, which have wheels instead of runners. The kid can push off the legs from the floor and thus "ride" on his horse. Adult can also crumble. In addition, there are some kind of transformers that can be turned into a gurney and rocking chair, rearranging skids or turning them around.
When the baby grows up, the toy-horse does not lose its relevance. A variety of figures from rubber and plastic allow you to invent many role-playing games, they can be taken for walks and trips. There are even whole game sets-farms, as well as toy families of horses. As you can see in the photo, toy-horses of this type are relevant for both girls and boys.
Specially for girls, a lot of toy horses are produced with a variety of accessories, dolls, carriages. This is ideal for role-playing games. And for future men, suites, in which, along with horses, men (soldiers, knights, etc.) are perfect.
Talk about toy horses will be unfinished without mention of the ponies. These are not just toys. Little horses - the heroes of the famous animated series "Friendship is a miracle", which won the hearts of the girls of many countries of the world. Pony for every taste is produced: from miniature figures (about 5 cm high) to fairly large interactive toys (plastic and plush).
Psychologists have an interesting theory, based on the preferences of the child. So, if a toy-horse became a pet's favorite, this may indicate that he is trying on himself the role of a horse, not a rider, that is, in many respects will depend on others (how a horse depends on the owner who feeds it) and is unlikely can radically change the situation. In addition, a fan of toy horses is, it is possible, a future workaholic, ready to work until the fall, and for a very modest reward. The theory, of course, is very controversial, but if you approach it wisely, you can from time to time talk through the child various points, giving him the opportunity to be not only a "horse" but also a "rider", and instilling in him the confidence that all (or, at least, much) in life depends on him. The latter will be useful for any growing up person: and the one who has a favorite toy - a horse, and one who is crazy about cats, bunnies, dolls, robots, etc.
