Toy horse; multi-coloured (purple, orange, red, yellow, green, blue) textile soft head and legs; hard plastic body and hooves.

Packaging: product is mounted on cardboard; instructions and information are on the back of the packaging. Product is approximately 16 cm tall, although it cannot stand up because the legs are soft textile, too flimsy to support the plastic body. Toy is for children of 6 months and older.
