This toy is absolutely adorable. I bought one for my grandchild's birthday in August 2013. She had been "needing" one for a couple of months. When she saw the box, she was so happy she almost cried! The doll and horse are very compatible size wise. Both have that gorgeous hair that all children love to brush and play with. I really appreciated the safety helmet the doll wears, as the child will instantly ask what it's for. Through explaining it's purpose, you're able to reinforce safety practices when riding horses. The colors are bright and vibrant, and the quality of the toys is very good. My only concern was the small accessories that can easily be lost/misplaced, but then again, that teaches some degree of responsibility for the child to take proper care of their toys/possessions.
