Spring Toy to Promote Reaching

I discovered this toy in the arena. It is sort of a doll with a baseball head and the feet are attached at the end of a spring. I had been wishing for a toy like this so that the children could have something fun to pull while reaching on the mane. This was more fun than telling children to touch the pony's ears or mane. It also worked well when held on the croup so that children rotated to reach and pull on those feet (shown on left side of photo).
