I think maybe all of you might know (or only recognize) these horses, even if you're not a horse collector. I was a horse collector, starting with Schleich, but collection some others along - including Grand Champions. I loved these hairy horses as a kid, but suddenly they disappeared.

Grand Champions are model toy horses produced between 1988 and 2008 by Empire Toys and Alpha International. Made from hard plastic with soft, brushable manes and tails, models come in a wide variety of styles, colours and poses. Widely distributed throughout North America, Europe and Australia, each horse came with a variety of accessories and a biography card detailing their name, breed and history.

Ooh, I do hope they're coming back! They're quite difficult to get here, I've been searching for an affordable one for quite a while as I've fallen in love with them, with no luck so far.

Magpies will be coming back, too; maybe there's some connection there? scratch

Yes, it would be wonderful to see these back in store! cheers

These Magpies are very lovely horse figurines as well. I've never seen them in stores.

Indeed, but the fact that the site is online again, is very promising Smile We'll just wait and see!
