Product : Midway Dreams Story Book & Pet Horses Bundle for Communication Between Grandparents and Grandchildren - Stuffed Animal Therapy for People with Memory Loss from Aging and Caregivers
Midway is an adorable horse who has many dreams to share with all his friends! He dreams of winning a big horse race, competing in a real live rodeo, visiting New York City and many other fun experiences and roles the horse plays in our culture. He was named after the historical small town in Kentucky called "Midway". This bundle of products includes the beautifully illustrated book called "Midway Dreams", a 16" standing Memorable Pet horse for a grandparent and a 13" sitting horse for the grandchild.
