It’s no secret lots of kids love horses, and LEGO has tapped into that fascination. Their popular LEGO Friends series of horse building sets lets kids explore their horse addiction in a variety of ways. With prices ranging from kid’s budgets to big ticket items, you’re sure to find a set to ignite their creative fun.
LEGO Friends Horse Training and Trailer: This medium-sized set comes with 148 pieces to build. It also includes two Friends figures, as well as the all important horse and foal. It works great as a starter set for younger kids, with easy to follow instructions suitable for children as young as four. It comes complete with a car that tows a trailer for the horses, a jump, a stable, and grooming tools.
LEGO Friends Stephanie’s Horse Jumping: This set has a higher price tag and more bricks to assemble. The 337 pieces combine to make similar features as the above set, but with more complexity suited for older kids. You still get two Friends figures and two full-size horses with removable saddles. A winner’s circle comes with trophies to complete the play action in this detailed set.
LEGO Friends Olivia’s Newborn Foal: Want a smaller set perfect for gifting or introducing kids to the horse collection? This 70-piece selection comes with Olivia and a foal. It also includes a wheelbarrow to collect hay for the hungry newborn, and a pump that moves so kids can fill up the trough. A simple structure holds all the necessary tools for grooming and caring for this newest addition to the horse family, as well as your child’s collection.
You can get even more horse sets, with new ones being released all the time. My daughter owns multiple sets that have since been discontinued, and enjoys playing with the horses in particular. If you have a child who loves horses, start building their world with any of these popular sets.
