Smile (US) Children's toy horses free to new home :)

My family has been hard at work cleaning the attic this spring and yesterday I found an old toy box of mine. In it were, among other things, the toy horses that had given me endless hours of fun when I was younger. I loved them but I just don't have the space to keep all of my old horse toys now. So I thought that perhaps if I try to find them a home with one of the Horse Forum members they might end up in the hands of another horse crazy little girl (or boy) who can enjoy them as much as I did. It's worth a try, anyway.

So here's the deal:

I'll give them away for free to anyone who can pay for shipping. This is of course first come first serve and for the sake of simplicity I'd like to give them away as a set. These toys were well loved and are in a very used condition, however they are all still fully intact* and are no doubt ready for many more years of play. Payment for the shipping would be sent to me by PayPal before I ship them to you. If you want them or have any questions, please email me at WalnutPixie 'at' Gmail.com

(*The black one is actually missing his right eye. He's much more beaten up in general than the others are. Maybe I played too many 'wild, crazy stallion fights' with that one )

About the toys themselves:

-They're all similar in make; hollow plastic with a fine, fuzzy coat that is difficult to describe. Many of them have small scrapes where the fuzz was torn away to reveal plastic underneath (it's less noticeable than you'd think). The manes are very soft and tails are long and braid-able.

-There are 14 of them in total including adults, yearlings, foals, and a chubby pony.

-They come with a plastic saddle that is very oddly shaped but fun none the less. You can have the weird looking 'saddle stand' horse too, if you want it. I never liked that one :P


<---- Spirit and Rain

<---Appaloosa family. Yearling has a bridle.

<----Palomino family

<--- More of the palominos and the black 'stallion' who is missing an eye (he has a very nice pose, though. You can't really see it in the picture).

<---Chubby palomino spotted pony. Cute!

<---The strangely colored foal. This was its original color, it isn't dirty or anything.

<---Ugly 'saddle stand' horse who you can have if you actually want, and the saddle. The saddle attaches with a rear cinch (intact, btw) and appears to almost have a second set of stirrups. lol!

I am here to learn! :)

I asked my mom about the pony. She says that it is Misty of Chincoteague from the book and came in a set with foal 'Stormy' who must be the oddly colored one.

I will take them! I have little cousins who would love to play with them! Always looking for more. (: Zip code is 54913 for shipping, I can send it through pay pal? They're adorable.

Hey, that is so great! It looks like shipping US Priority mail to 54913 would be about $9. Would you mind emailing me? I have to use my father's paypal and I think he'd be more comfortable if I didn't put his info up on the forum ;)

So, the person who was going to take these hasn't gotten back to me and the toys are taking up much needed space in my room. These toys are once again looking for a new home! Please let me know if you're interested :)

Thanks tinyliney. I had an essay to write when I took these pictures so they of course turned into something over-elaborate ;)

The toys may have found a home, so I'll revoke what I said earlier about them being available again. Thanks everyone!
