My Kingdom for a Horse

Okay so I know that most any child is imaginative enough to grab a broom or a Swiffer or even a paper towel roll, and turn it into a horsie. But if you’re like me, your heart will ache and swell and torment you until you break down and get that kid a real hobby horse.

A beautiful option can be found at Craftsbury Kids, which is now selling the heirloom-quality horses from Irish toymaker and dad, Dan Hillman. These handcrafted wooden playthings are each hand painted and stained usiing only eco-friendly, plant-based paints, then signed and numbered by the artist. The heads have that beautiful, elegant look reminiscent of a classic carousel horse, and seriously, what child can resist a carousel horse?

These heirloom quality toys go for $135. Which is definitely cheaper than the real pony you also considered buying after seeing the kid giddyup-ing around on the Swiffer.
