Melissa and Doug Pasture Pals Mini Horses and Fold & Go Barn Review

Thanks to the awesome folks at Gummy Lump, Emma and I were able to review two terrific toys by Melissa and Doug:  The Pasture Pals Mini Horses and the Fold & Go Barn Playset.  You really can’t go wrong with this brand – I have loved every toy we ever received as a gift or purchased by Melissa and Doug.  These two toys are no exception!

I wanted these Pasture Pals Mini Horses as soon as I saw them on Gummy Lump.  First of all, shipping was super fast.  And they are a GREAT price on sale at $15.99 (regularly $19.99)!  Second, look at their “faces”.  These are obviously nice mini horses, not cheaply or quickly made.  They’re also soft and velvety textured, like toys I had when I was a kid.

I was also pleased to find that they all stand well on their own.  With the exception of one, anyway – I just bent the one’s leg out a bit and he stands up fine, though.  Another great feature is on the back of the wooden case that holds the horses.  It features each horse breed and tells a little bit about them.  Yay for learning opportunities!

So guess what?  These mini horses fit PERFECTLY in the Melissa and Doug Fold & Go Barn!

Speaking of which, the barn is another toy we’re absolutely loving.  It’s very sturdy due to it being made completely of wood and comes with a set of plastic farm animals, a foldable wooden fence, and a wooden ladder.  It opens up to reveal stables and rooms for the animals to play, and has barn doors that slide open and closed.

I have nothing negative to say about these playsets – they’re very well-loved!  They’re high-quality, made to last, great for pretend play, and are even nice for taking along with you.   Keep in mind, though, that the barn doesn’t have a latch to keep it shut while you’re carrying it by the handle on top – so things can fall out if you’re not careful.  I can’t recommend these playsets more, and recommend checking out all of the Melissa and Doug toys on sale at Gummy Lump!

I have to mention that they also have the Melissa and Doug Fold and Go Castle, Fold and Go Dollhouse, Fold and Go Princess Castle, and Fold and Go Stable in stock – all on sale for $39.99!
