Two horses run and prance side by side. Which one will jump higher? The horses canter one after the other. When one goes up, the second goes down. Together they have six wheels located non-centrally, which means that they don’t turn regularly. To make the horses move pull on the string which acts as a rein. When the toy moves, it resembles horses running. The imitation of animal movements introduces a child to animal world who takes interest in it, learns to appreciate it and notices the behaviours of animals. The whole body is involved while playing with the toy thus contributing to the development of gross motor skills. These horses can be great companions when a child takes its first steps.
The wheels of the horses are not painted. The Bajo company makes sure that every toy has a wooden element without any coat of paint in order for children to get to know, see and feel the structure of wood.
