I'm Mom to two boys who love dressing up as knights. They have lots of fun riding around on their hobby horses pretending to go on exciting adventures to find dragons.
The hobby horse or stick pony is a classic ride on toy that has been popular with generations of children. Originally hobby horses were carved from wood and you can still buy wood hobby horses which make a nice gift.
Stick ponies with a plush horse or pony head are popular today. It's amazing what fun toddlers and preschoolers can have with a stuffed horses head on a stick!
A hobby horse makes a great gift for little boys who want to be knights or cowboys and for little girls who love ponies and horses and dressing up as a cowgirl.
The hobby horses we have are plush with an electronic galloping noise which the boys think is great fun. You'll often find my boys in the knight costumes galloping around the living room!
