The Model Horse Hobby has been around for many years. It began back in the 1950s and has developed into an extremely fun, friendly, and educational pastime.
Collectible horses like Breyer Horses are the most popular ones. They are also ideal gifts for horse lovers.
Breyer horses are sought after by horse-crazy kids. They are a collectible form of horse art for kids. Model horses, in general, make great gifts, but Breyer horses shine in this category of collectibles.
When I was a kid, I collected Breyer horses, and now my daughter Rachel adds her own to that collection she inherited. Keep in mind, even though Breyer horses are loved by girls try also different options horse from our gift collections for girls.
Of course, leaving them in a box on the shelf allows them to increase in value, but I found great value as a kid, and so does my daughter, in using my imagination and my model horses for hours of fun. Either way, they make a great gift for young horse fans.
If at all possible, you should consider age, available display space, and the overall personality of your young horse enthusiast. This will help you to choose from the huge selection of Breyer horses available today.
For example, you may want to choose a less expensive model for a kid who’s likely to play with it quite often and a more “collectible” model for a more mature individual. You might also consider Stable Mates or Paddock Pals for those with less space to display them, and Classic or Traditional models for those with a lot of shelf space
