Since the old times, animals have been part of children’s games imagery: Pets, exotic animals, farm or traction animals... And there we have the horse, even in a peaceful way or in war, allowing the child to move, drag, race, imagine or compete against himself.

The horse displacement functions are enriched by a more playful and symbolic function, the rocking movement of a swing. Rocking is one of the activities used from early childhood to reassure, sleep or simply distract the child.

So the horse meets the double function of a toy: to represent and imagine the real world, but also to release the imagination and fly far, far away...

Our horse is part of the traditionally handmade toy industry in Catalonia.
