Made in the 1920’s, this plush horse started his life with long horse hair all over the body. After 100 years, it is still in great shape. The entire piece is original, showing normal wear from all these years of service. The wheels still turn just like they did a century ago. Yes, this is usable by your toddler to help learn to walk by him/her self. Think of the hours of enjoyment your toddler can get out of this wonderful toy.
