Here are the hobby horses I made the boys. I originally only intended to make the first one for Eden but I had so much fun making it that I made one for Joplin too. Dan is now sporting a pair of odd socks!
They have had lots of use and been very much played with - Eden shouts 'Horsey Moo!!!' every time he rides his! Joplin doubles his as a guitar too and my niece even used it as Cinderella's mop in her boxing day 'one girl play'!
