[Péek-oh-Lee] Adjective. Italian for little, small, young. That’s where Piccoli Horses got their name. Piccoli Horses CEO Kimberly Rogers had to learn to teach her son to talk after he experienced some severe medical problems. She used her experience to develop a system to help all children. During that time, she also realized the importance of transitional objects. These are things like blankets, dolls and toys that help children feel safe and loved as they grow. She combined the the aspects of learning speech and transitional toys and created Piccoli Horses.
Piccoli Horses is a tech-based toy company that meshes custom-made, plush horses and educational mobile apps. Their goal as a company is to introduce children to technology, while letting them attach to their horse and not their mobile device. They have a variety of apps for different speaking situations like school, going to a museum or visiting a zoo. Apps help children with language development and improving motor skills. Plus, they just added the French language to their apps! Even better – these learning apps are free! They make learning how to speak universal for all our children. Children practice their growing conversation skills by incorporating movements, tangible objects and images from the child’s own world.
Every Piccoli Horse is made with super high quality PBA-free materials. These horses are unbelievable soft and cuddly… I couldn’t put them down. These are probably the softest, most cuddle-worthy plush I’ve ever had. And I’ve owned numerous plush toys, so that’s saying a lot! As I type this, I have 3 of them sitting on my lap right now 🙂 Their little faces are full of personality and each is super unique. In fact, under each of their saddles is a hidden code. Type that code in on the website and you’ll discover your Piccoli Horse’s name!
The horses are custom made, non-electronic plushes, which means they can take them anywhere they go, because they will quickly become best friends. As your child learns from the apps, they can experience them with their horse right by their side. They are lightweight and have slightly weighted hoofs, so you can stand them up on their own. It’s no wonder these magical horses and their educational apps have won SO many awards!
I’m absolutely in love with my Piccoli Horses. These aren’t just made for children, by the way – adults can love them, too! If you asked Santa for a pony every year of your childhood and never received one, now you can! 😉 These gorgeous plush toys are remarkable, and it’s so great to see a company get back to basics, while still incorporating technology and learning. I review a lot of products every year, and give my 100% honest opinion. If I don’t love it, you don’t read about it on this blog. And I can very honestly say that Piccoli Horses is my favorite company and product of 2018. THAT is how incredible these horses and the apps really are.
Check out Piccoli Horses and discover your own magic with your new best friend!
