Our Top Easter Picks for Your Horse Lover

Posted by Eleda Towle on

If you're looking for something more wholesome than candy for your horse lover's Easter basket, we're here to help!  We've put a whole bunch of Easter basket-sized models on sale ( Click here to go to the Easter Sale collection ) and have listed a few as our top picks here!

We've organized them by size so that even if you've never bought model animals before, it will be easy to find ones you'll enjoy giving on Easter.

 

Classic Size (1:12 scale, adults around 7" tall)

Classic models (around $15- $20) are a great centerpiece for your Easter display or basket.  Colorful unicorns are always a winner at Easter time, so here are our favorites in this size:

Solaris:

Breyer Solaris unicorn at Triple Mountain

This golden unicorn named for the sun is perfect for Easter sunrise.  He sports a metallic golden coat with warm highlights and a touch of glitter in his mane and tail.

 

Zoe and Zander:

These adorable unicorn foals wear spring-colored pastel coats with glittery manes and tails and will bring a smile to any horse lover's face.

 

Cupcake:

Breyer Cupcake at Triple Mountain

What's better for an Easter celebration than cupcakes?  This pastry-themed pony wears a "chocolate" body with pink frosting and glitter sprinkles!  He has been a favorite at Triple Mountain since his release, and shows no signs of stopping.  He even comes in a colorful, themed box!

 

 

Stablemates Size (1:32 scale, adults average around 2" tall)

These little guys (individuals around $4, sets priced comparatively) are perfect for making a big impression.  For the same price as one Classic sized model, you can get several of these to sprinkle around a basket, create an Easter Pony Hunt, or place with table settings.  Here are our favorites for Easter:

Unicorn Blind Bags:

Glitter Unicorns Set:

A huge favorite of young horse and unicorn lovers, this set of four jewel-toned, semi-translucent unicorns contain glitter right in their plastic, making them sparkle and glow!  We expect to sell out of these for Easter, so to add some glittery sparkle to your celebration, you may want to grab a set soon!

Mini Whinnies and Pocket Box Animals - (about .5 - 1" tall)

These tiny but fun little critters (priced around $2 - $3 each) are perfect for tucking into plastic eggs for a super fun hunt with less sugar but still plenty of sweetness!  They are also great for baskets and gifts between friends.  Just note their tiny size can make them a choking hazard for young children, so they're recommended for ages 5 and up.  For the price, you can grab handfuls of them to sprinkle throughout your special celebration!

Have a doggie or kitty lover in the family?  These teeny, tiny pets each come in a blind bag that contains two dogs or two kittes, and an accessory.  Dogs may get a water dish; kitties a scratching post or a bed, among other items.  They come inside a tiny box that you can fit into your pocket so you can take them anywhere.  They also, it so happens, fit very well into plastic eggs!

 

Schleich and CollectA (approximately 4 - 5" tall)

Both brands (average around $8 for an adult horse, more for play sets) are favorites with young collectors and their parents.  They are made for rugged play, with a slightly bendable plastic that makes them more durable for galloping around the wild plains of the kitchen table or leaping to the floor.  CollectA is best known for realistic sculpts that mimic each horse's breed, making them popular with kids who love to learn about different horses.  They even include some rare breeds, sure to spark their quest for learning.  Schleich's horses are more generic, but very popular, and their play sets are the best of any brand we've seen, with lots of accessories to keep play going for many hours.  Here are our favorites for Easter:

CollectA Rainbow Unicorn Mare
