While they might be small in stature, these ponies have the heart of gallant steeds. Including a Dartmoor, highland, fell, Welsh, quarter, Shetland, Chinoteague, and Exmoor pony, our Ponies Toob contains tons of little friends with big personalities! History: Although you might not think it, ponies can be as effective or better workers than horses. Because ponies evolved in and are endemic to naturally harsher environments, many farmers have found that they outperform horses in areas of rugged terrain and poor climates. Ponies are just as intelligent and friendly as their equine relatives, and they make loving companions, especially for young children first learning how to ride.Characteristics: Realistically crafted and professionally hand painted, each figurine in this Toob, like spirited Exmoor posed in a defiant rearing position, captures the demeanor and personalities of these miniature mares. Due to their scientific accuracy, fun poses, and stunning craftsmanship, these models are a great resource for educational study, rewarding play, or just charming dÃ©cor. These pony figurines make great Montessori toys for exploration learning activities including sensory bins, matching activities and much more.Size: 1.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 12.8 inches tall, this Toob is a bit larger than the size of a standard American ruler and contains 8 starkly varied and vibrantly colorful pony figurines that range from 1.25 to 3.75 inches tall. You better believe the white and mustard yellow Welsh, as well as all its pony friends, are equally hard workers and loving companions as their larger relatives!The Ponies TOOB® is part of the TOOBS® collectionAll of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free8 pieces per TOOB®.
