Barbie Saddle ‘N Ride Horse Review
She can enjoy her riding time with her horse alone or with her Barbie friends. This is a toy that allows for Barbie to be able to make a move on her own and any child will be thrilled with that.
It is suitable for a child as young as three to use and for sure, it will be your child’s playmate for many years. This toy is user friendly with various mechanism controlled by simple clicks from the toy’s buttons. With just the click of a simple button, Barbie can swing up into the saddle and is ready to get the fun started. By placing Barbie’s hand on the horse and pressing the button, Barbie will make the move on her own to get on the horse’s back.
She swings her leg up and over until she’s in the saddle. What delights kids with this toy is that when Barbie saddles her beloved horse, it actually moves a bit just like a real horse. Talking about toys being close to reality!
When the saddle goes on, the horse goes forward, ready to get started. When Barbie is ready to get off the horse and continue on her way toward a different adventure, all kids have to do to help her dismount is press the button on the horse and it frees Barbie.
Though the horse and the doll alone are great fun, there are also some fun accessories with this toy to add to the imaginative play time. The doll comes dressed in a short flower patterned tunic that features a ruffled hem.
The tunic is topped with a sleeveless blue jacket. She’s also wearing riding pants made of plastic in her favorite color along with a pair of riding boots that are brown.
Ever safety conscious, Barbie also sports a cute pink helmet that fastens beneath her chin for when she’s riding the horse. The horse is a lovely tan color with a darker brown mane and tail.
His legs move and are bendable at the joints of the knees and feet. He comes with a wide pink saddle that has plenty of detail that you’ll see on a real saddle. Attached to the saddle are the pink reins that connect to the bridle which is also pink.
The bridle fits on the sides of the horse’s head. After fun adventures, the horse will need to be taken care of with lots of love and grooming. Keeping the horse groomed is easy thanks to the brush that’s included with the purchase. Barbie will be able to keep the tail and mane looking fabulous.
