I recently came across a new toy that definitely sparked my intrigue. The Pony Cycle is a plush toy that is quite unique. There is no motor, no power and no battery required so you actually mount the Pony like you would a real horse – your feet rest on the stirrup step and as you bounce the spring action propels the horse forward; the faster you bounce the quicker your Pony will race. The product actually promotes exercise to children, getting them to keep fit whilst still having fun.
The Pony Cycle comes in two sizes: small, which is for 3-5years and has a weight capacity 25kg, or medium which is for 4years and above and has a weight capacity 40kg. There are several designs, Golden Brown Pony, Brown Pony, Chocolate Brown Pony, Zebra and even a Unicorn!
There are currently none of these products stocked in the UK or even in Europe, however there is a comptition to win one over on their facebook page. With Christmas coming it would be a great time to win one – the competition ends on november 6th so head over and get your entry in!
Pony Cycles will also be attending the Magical Christmas Fair in Manchester on Friday 29th November- Sunday 1st Dec at Eventcity next to the Trafford centre. I am really hoping to attend this event as it sounds fantastic, so I will definitely be heading over to their stand!
