Meet Chestnut, the next best thing to a real horse! This realistic plush spring horse responds to your child's motion with life-like sounds that change based on how fast your child rides: walking, trotting and galloping. The plush coat and padded head invite hugs, and the saddle keeps your child in place while riding. Chestnut also encourages imaginative play by responding with eating sounds when "fed" the carrot accessory, and the soft yarn mane and tail can be brushed with the comb accessory. The spring covers combined with the patented EZ Climb™ step provide maximum safety

Chestnut: Plush Interactive Riding Horse is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fun Horse Toy with some Construction Issues Like many other reviews the sound system quit working in less than a day. The safety features are excellent. My child loves the horse but for the price I believe we should receive a product worthy of the price. I only hope CS will help solve this issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Started putting this together and ran into problems immediately. One of the frame bars was too thick and did not fit... even when hammered. Hoping radio flyer will take this back. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great featured riding horse! Radio Flyer provided us with a free sample of Chestnut: Plush Interactive Riding Horse to try out and review. The first impression I had was with assembling the toy. It took a little over 2 hours to assemble this toy with 2 people and that felt excessive, as there were a few features that seemed avoidable: the body bars are just exactly long enough to link the suspension chains, if they were even 1/4" longer, it would have taken at least 30 minutes off of the assembly process. The head of the horse was really challenging to attach to the body of the horse - I'm not sure what could be done differently, but it took us at least 40 minutes to attach it. Once we completed assembling the toy, I realized it needed 3 AA batteries and I didn't see anywhere on the box that it needed that nor whether they were included/not (like most toys do). Once we got the toy assembled, our daughter really enjoyed it. She is 3 years old and wears a 4T. She can get on and off of the horse by herself, she really enjoys combing the horse's hair with the included comb and feeding the horse with the included carrot. The scarf around the horse's neck is stitched to the body in one place and nicely hides some screws where the head mounts to the body. I noticed my daughter wanted to try to put a softer saddle on it, since the existing saddle is a hard plastic shaped saddle. She has ridden it daily for about 3 days and has only recently slowed down on hopping up on the horse to play with it. She is able to successfully "ride" the horse and make it rock and the horse itself is clearly very stable and strongly constructed. This toy is a nice rendition of a rocking/bouncing horse and my daughter really enjoys that the horse makes sounds. I also really like that the horse sounds have an on/off button that is designed more for adults than children, so we can control when the horse makes the sounds =)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Instructions need more detail I still can't figure out if there is a "volume control" on the horse's sounds---if there is, would someone please give me a clue where? And if there is, why isn't there information on how to control sound on the instruction sheets? Hasn't been used yet (Xmas gift)--will wait and see how the child likes it, and it's feeble noises.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a Happy Customer I assembled this today for my daughter's second birthday. The 'eating' sounds when feeding the horse stopped working within an hour, and the rest of the sounds it makes are hardly audible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Interactive Toy! Radio Flyer provided me with a free sample of Chestnut: Plush Interactive Riding Horse to try out and review. Overall I think this toy is a lot of fun and very sturdy. Putting the toy together was a little difficult in the sense that you have to have 2 people to put it together. All the pieces fit together so snugly that you have to have one person holding the pieces in place, or holding the horse up, and the other person putting them together. Since the pieces do fit so snugly it allows for the horse, when complete, to be very sturdy. I have a 2 year old son and he loves to interact with the horse. His imagination really comes alive when he feeds Chestnut the carrot and he also enjoys brushing his coat. The only thing that I wasn't thrilled about is how high off the ground the horse is. My son is newly 2, but taller for his age, and there is no way he is able to get on the horse himself. This isn't such a big deal, because I can help him up and it is a toy that he can grow into, but this isn't a toy he can play with by himself if he wants to ride on it. At this point in time he is happy to just pretend Chestnut is his pet to take care of which is so cute to see!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We LOVE Chestnut! We were lucky to have received a free sample of Chestnut from Radio Flyer to test the product! He’s so soft and is a solid riding horse! Starting from scratch here with assembly... it was easy for me until I got to attaching the limbs, from there I let my husband take over because I’m just too weak, haha. Overall, it was very simple, and instructions were very clear and organized, down to separating the hardware into sealed and numbered bags associated to specific steps. Impossible to mess anything up. Took about 45 minutes from start to end. From the moment we got Chestnut up and galloping our 2 year old (25 Months) has truly been obsessed. She feeds him and combs his hair in the morning and before bed and has so much fun taking him for a ride! She was able to master appropriately hopping on after a few tries. The step made it much easier for her. Volume of the gallops and neighs on the highest level is not over bearing which is nice for this mom of two! Chestnut will continue to be loved in our home, that I am certain of!
