Description: The first year that Fisher-Price made a rolling riding horse was in 1934 with the #200 Wheel Horse. Fisher-Price made the horse a bit bigger and stronger and introduced the #225 Wheel Horse in 1935. 1936 rolled around with yet another new horse. The #237 Riding Horse is basically the same as the #225 except the #237 Riding Horse has detailed facial features and a red leather bridle-rein. A similar Riding Horse with a black leather bridle-rein and a rounded chest was introduced in 1937 as the #245 Riding Horse. The 1937 Fisher-Price dealer catalogue proudly boasts that the #245 Riding Horse is "so substantially made that it will hold the weight of three grown men".
Accessories:
  • FPT4139 - White wooden riding horse with scattered black polka-dots, a black realistic stenciled face (teardrop eye, nostrils, and bridle are outlined) and mane, a tail made of black fiber, a red leather bridle, and 4 round peg legs that are mounted onto a red platform that rolls on 4 wooden wheels. A small red wooden seat for a child rider is mounted on the horse's back. The horse does not have a Fisher-Price logo or model number written anywhere on it. Measures 16" long, 16-1/2" high, 6-3/4" wide.
Variations: None.
