Most little girls are crazy over horses. How many mom and dad’s have told that all time little white lie to their little girl so not to break her heart, that the garden isn’t big enough for a real horse, but when she gets older you will move to a new house with a bigger garden so she can have a real horse. If you have a daughter who love ponies and horses then a fabulous gift to consider is the Playmobil Horse Farm from Playmobil.

Once again because it’s made up of small parts avoid giving this as a Christmas present if the child is 3 years old or under.

As the 19th century progressed, chess organization developed quickly. Many chess clubs , chess books, and chess journals appeared. There were correspondence matches between cities; for example, the London Chess Club played against the Edinburgh Chess Club in 1824. 48 Chess problems became a regular part of 19th-century newspapers; Bernhard Horwitz , Josef Kling , and Samuel Loyd composed some of the most influential problems.
