  • Horse Puzzle or Toy Patterns

    My granddaughter's fifth birthday is coming up and I would like to make a set of two or three horses for her. Either jigsawed but pinned together so there is movement but not a puzzle that comes apart. Or just some horse figures. I am interested in finding some patterns. She has been into My Little Ponies but the figures I've found have some details and thin sections that I think would not make good play toys.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    It can be as simple as doing an internet search for horse silhouette. Or maybe a plan like this:

      Are you talking about something like this? I google 'horse puzzle', copy, paste into Word or an imaging program to create the size I want and then print the 'pattern'.

        Thanks. I've changed paths in favor of a gear toy, but it is involved enough I have found something for her birthday and will complete the gear toy for a Christmas present.

              The gear toy is an excellent idea. Will intrigue her now and for quite awhile to come.

                I am sorry that I did not participate the last few years. I am like a little kid waiting for the mailman every day waiting to see what Santa sent me.
                Dave Thank you so much for organizing this.
