5112 - arabian horse with jockey
« on: January 15, 2012, 21:14:41 »
This is my first review, so please bear with me ;D

As a horse lover, I was excited to see these new horse sets. I ordered number 6 in the series to start.

stable assembled

The stable is much more sturdy than I was expecting it to be.

jockey in her silks

I think her goggles got painted on crooked, but oh well. The painted goggles are not my favorite, but I guess the only other option would have been glasses you can remove, which are not my favorite either.

all assembled, in the stable


The whole set

I like this set a lot more than I imagined. My daughter has claimed it for her collection, but I plan to order others from this series.

Thanks for the pics.. I love the horsies.. wish it didn't include the "stable thing"...

Just made an order that included that set...

(the woman will go to the snow guys though.. maybe with different legs..)

just for comparisons sake, a couple shots of the various versions of the Playmobil horse through time:


side view


front view

The newest horse has smooth sides, with no groove to accommodate the saddle. This looks really nice, in my opinion. Below is a view of how the new saddle looks on the horse:


The new saddle hugs the horse more than in previous versions.

I like all the horses they've made. The first version is artistic, the second versatile, and this new version looks great.

Hope you enjoyed the review!  :wave:

Thank you for a very good review, tenni.  I hope you'll do more of them.

It's a nice set, although not my theme, and I'm sure it'll prove very popular, especially with the girls.

Great review, I have 2 of the others in this series and am planning a review some time soon.
I thought I didn't like the stalls, but that was just until I got them. I really like them in person, they look great and may be very useful in the future for me.
It looks from the 2012 leaked catalog that all of the horses in the future will be more like this series, and the 'New Horses' will now be discontinued like the 'Old Horses' were.

Doesn't it seem a waste, to end the old new horses?

And it's a darn shame the saddles don't fit.. IMO, a mistake...

But the horsies are GORGEOUS! :love:

Thank you for the picture of all the styles of horse.  I thought the latest one was a new design, and now I see it is.
