This barn has multiple doors that open-some slide and other's are dutch doors. We do have another barn of this type that has the dutch doors and the hinge's fell apart right away. I am hoping this one will be better since the doors do seem to open and close more smoothly on this particular barn...but need to stress that the kids need to be somewhat 'gentle' with these dutch doors so they don't break the hinges. The manufacturer really should attach them with metal hinges and they would last alot longer.
Overall...I feel my kids are going to get alot of enjoyment out of this barn.
The base of this large all wood stable is roughly 13"x18 folded and 13"x26" when opened. From base to the peak of the roof measures about 14.5".
Yes, this is a big toy. Item descriptions I have seen say this is scaled for the "Classic" Breyer horses. That doesn't work out quite right. The Breyer Classic horses are scaled at 1:12. They can't stand at the Dutch doors and stick their heads out without being propped up with their front feet suspended up off the floor .
THIS STABLE IS MORE CLOSELY SCALED TO THE 1:9 TRADITIONAL BREYER HORSES. At this scale, the Dutch doors are the correct height for a 1:9 scale horse with strait forelegs to stand comfortably at the door and stick his head out the opening. But even a horse of this scale can be a snug fit. It needs to have its tail hanging down for the smaller stall. It looks like the stable was built with an eye to a 1:10 scale.
Unfortunately, the 3 ft. corral fence supplied seems way too short. When you round that out, it would make an enclosure just 9 inches square. A better length would have been 6 ft. That would make an enclosure that is 1.5 ft. square.
The stable comes unfinished. A clear coat will bring out the warmth of the wood and protect it from juice box spill stains. A light grey stain would give a a nice, natural weathered look.
The 16 lb. stable does not lend itself to be being frequently relocated. But, if the stable is to be moved around a lot, a latch should be added to keep it folded and any loose contents safely inside.
The Dutch doors can be held shut with thin magnetized rubber strips. You may already have some of this material in the form of business cards stuck on your refrigerator. The longer the strips, the better they will hold.
This is a well-built toy that should last for a long time.
When folded shut, there is no way to keep the 2 halves closed when transporting; plus the
doors are not lockable so all of your childs things inside fall out when you are transporting it.
So...run down to Lowes & look by the door hinges in the hardware section.
Buy the following:
Gatehouse 2-Pack Brass Cabinet Catches
Item #: 311971 | Model #: 890236
These are draw-type latches to buckle the 2 barn halves together when transporting.
You only need one, but there is 2 in a pack. There will be only one place on the barn to install it, right up front..you'll figure it out.
To keep the barn doors from swinging open, go further on down the aisle or ask where the magnets are.
Buy the following:
The Hillman Group 1/2-in x 1-in Flexible Sheet Magnet Tape
Item #: 185280 | Model #: 542004
These are real thin magnetic sheets with adhesive on one side. You can cut 'em with scissors.
Make sure to orient the magnets (so they are sticking together & not oposing one another) before you stick 'em on.
Stick 'em along the entire vertical run of the inside of the door; then on the door frame, & you're off to the races..
