I would give it an A+, but it is rather difficult to get the saddle to buckle under the horse. Doll balancing isn't too difficult thanks to the stirrups, but the saddle should have a saddle horn to keep the dolls from tipping forward. I haven't named mine yet, but he's already been ridden!
The "Our Generation" horses do not compare. I want to be able to "pet" a horse, and those ones are all plastic with no softness to them.
I think he has more play value than a piece of furniture, though, and you can braid his hair and stuff, too.
