The day that most new parents fear isn't when their child finally reaches the terrible twos, or first heads off to school, it's when their kid starts asking for a pony for their birthday. And since few of us can afford the real thing, this stuffed horse head might be a more affordable substitute.
It might seem macabre, but there's a good reason the rest of this stuffed horse is missing. The $US40 plush toy is actually designed to strap to a parent's leg and give kids something to hold onto while they're being bounced around during a simulated horsey ride. Sound effects still need to be added by mum or dad, and the addition of flies buzzing around is completely optional depending on how authentic you want the experience to be for your child.
