Jellycat Maypole Pony Musical Pull
Great friend but not washable...
My mother in law gave our son this horse when he was born. It has now been 2.5 years and he still LOVES his horsey. He cries if horsey goes missing at night and sometimes, we hear the tune going in the middle of the night when he occasionally wakes up or moves in his bed! The only problem we have had with it - and this is crucial when you are looking for a cuddly toy for children - is that the musical contraption inside the horse is not removable and therefore it makes the horse nearly impossible to wash. I have washed it delicately by hand a few times before - and again, if you have children, you know how difficult it can be to find time for this - but this time, with a newborn in tow, I just decided to try it in the washing machine... Well, horsey has now nearly lost its voice. The tune is so slow my son cries of frustration. We're going to have to buy another one... Not too happy about the washing situation.

Beautifully Musical Pony
Pull his tail and he plays a haunting little melody which just happens to be my favourite and the one I have sung to all my children and grand children too. Its a Russian folk tune and seems to be soporific. The latest grand son has to have it with him at bedtime and his eyes droop when the music plays.
The mane is a generous row of multicoloured ribbons which I know will be a hit in a month or two and the tail is made for teething and for little hands to hang onto. All in all its my favourite toy of the year. I have now given 5 as gifts and am buying an extra just in case they run out.

So looking forward to this colourful pony arriving...Beautiful looking toy ..
BUT the mechanism inside the toy was inescapably large...Soft toys should be soft and this one felt as if it had a brick inside it.
Also the tail pull did not work so don't know what sound it makes.
So disappointing. Will be returning it.

Gorgeous but dangerous
We received this as a present when our 10 month old was born, he absolutely loved the horse and was totally mesmerised by it. Unfortunatelly I don't think the tail rings are safe for babieswithout supervision, our son at 9 months managed to smash the tail breaking both plastic rings and leading to our spending a night in a&e worrying that our son had swallowed some of the broken plastic. Jellycat should review the plastic rings on all their toys. Please can john Lewis also review their Jellycat range. The rings should be removed and replaced, a baby should not be able to break the plastic.

much loved toy
Bought this for my grandson when he was a few months old to keep at my house when he came to stay. Tired horsey is his much loved toy that we keep when its time to go to bed. Hes strong enough to pull his tail himself now, but only just. Its well made and he loves rubbing the ribbons on his mane as he is falling asleep in his cot. Would definately recommend as a present for a newborn.

Very sweet musical toy
I bought this in readiness for our imminent arrival who is now 7 days overdue. The toy is beautifully made, with incredibly soft feet and plays a very sweet little lullaby. Very pleased with the quality. The only slight issue is that the pull tail doesn't always fully retract at the end of each play, meaning that occasionally the toy will play a random note in the middle of the night, which could be a little creepy!
