Rated 3 out of 5Â by FireWife Stable Parts Dont Connect
My daughter is 4 and saw the commercial on TV and was persistant that she wanted this. We purchased it for her as a Christmas gift.
The only thing I found is that the "other" ramps and the other horses dont connect to the stable. They are just free about the "yard" .. So if you purchase addition parts that are offered they dont connect to the stable. When the klop down the ramp given they maybe get 2 or 3 klops. That doesnt really interest my daughter. She likes when they continue to go.
And also the ramp on the side has a blockage in the middle so that ramp can not be used for the horses to go down. Overall this is a good toy but has those two flaws.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by mercy4free Great toy with two issues
First my two year old loves this toy. It's really cute and I love that it is not dependent on batteries (you can play with it without themas they are only used for the few sounds).
However, I completely don't get the stop in the middle of the side ramp and others have stated this too. It even has the sliding part...but with non-removable gate in the middle...why? I hope with enough comments that Fisher price will provide a free replacement part. It's frustrating to my daughter..and me if I must be honest!
I, too, think the tower seems flimsy and will probably break. The rest is very stable though (no pun intended). I do wish the extra horses are not so expensive!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by cb2girls A little disappointed
Overall this toy is good but maybe needs a little redesign.
I have the same problem as most of the other reviewers--what a disappointment the lower ramp was. And it wasn't pictured so that made it even worse. It's a total waste of time (which also means money!) Why have a ramp that barely works? The "jump" is a good concept if it was removable or on a longer ramp maybe. My 2 yr old doesn't get it. My 3 year old gets it but doesn't bother with it. She'd much rather have a ramp with no stop.
And that tower does feel a bit flimsy.
They enjoy the horses and the ramps that are longer though.

This toy is awesome. The concept is so simple, but it keeps my kids attention for about half hour intervals, several times a day. The horses make a realistic sound as they "ride" down the castle and my kids LOVE it. It is very pink, but you can buy a "Mike the Knight" horse separately for boys. The lights and sounds are neat, but to be honest, we didn't turn that on until we had it a week and the kids were none the wiser. The toy has held up after hours of play for a few weeks now and I am impressed with the quality. The individual horse toys themselves get carried around with us, but they don't do much on their own without anything to "ride down." Overall, GREAT toy, great quality, good price.
