The Grovely Wood toy horse is made by bringing together layers of multi layered birch ply. The layers are first cut to shape, and then held together whilst Emily hand sands the form to produce the distinct horse features. Once the shape has been sanded to perfection it’s time for Emily to paint the horse with a mix of Osmo® oil/wax, using tints to match the desired colour. Once fully dried and hardened, the horse will be ready to be firmly glued together or it’s at this stage the mane and tail will be inserted. A further coat of natural Osmo® oil/wax will be applied to produce a beautiful and enduring toy.
|Dimensions and Weight|
|Centimeters and Kilograms||Please note, all our horses and ponies are hand sanded, so sizes may vary. Height is measured from the tip of the ear to the base of the hoof. Length is measured from the tip of the nose to the tail. Small Pony; 12 cm high x 15.5 cm long. Big Pony; 13.6 cm high x 16 cm long. Horse; 17 cm high x 20.7 cm long.|
|Osmo natural waxes and oils||All of our toy stables and accessories will have had at least two protective coatings of Osmo® (Osmo® uses all natural waxes and oils), the coating will allow the natural beauty of the birch grain to be retained. Up to three coats of Osmo will be applied, and the overall finish will require at least three weeks to harden sufficiently, giving the toy increased durability. Osmo® forms an extremely hardwearing, dirt-resistant and water repellent surface.|
|Please Note:||Due to all of our toys being hand finished to specific colour requirements and individual specifications, we cannot accept responsibility for colour or texture variations from product to product.|

Please bare in mind that it takes us up to three weeks to produce each stable.
Once cut, they will require at least two coatings of Osmo® oil & wax which needs sufficient time to harden between coats. Whilst we try and maintain a good stock of pre-prepared selection of stables in the most popular tints, fitting doors, windows and mounting onto their chosen bases will require a few days. We will do our best to despatch your order within 14 days or sooner. However, this period may be extended during busy periods such as the lead up to Christmas.
We appreciate that there will be times when this delay won’t be acceptable for those upcoming special events, so we always try and keep a limited range of ‘off the shelf’ stock for those more immediate deliveries. We would advise, however, that you contact us direct to check on our day to day availability as we only update this ‘off the shelf’ list weekly.
All our toys are for a recommended age +3
