The King’s highway

This is becoming a bit of a hobby-horse for me, so I guess this one’s quite appropriate…

As with the guitars we saw earlier, these hobby-horses remind us that “pink” is the opposite of “natural”:

Hobby-horses available in white-and-brown horse version and pink unicorn version.

Horns a-plenty

The pink ones (pink face, pink mane, pink bridle) aren’t just pink horses, though, they’re unicorns! Because only in fantasyland can girls even pretend to do anything active. Not only that, but check out those shaped eyes and long lashes: they’re sexy* unicorns!

* For “sexy” read “a bit creepy”. See also the way My Little Pony has been given a sexy toy makeover in recent years (though still not quite as bad as Struts, which thankfully seem to have died a death).
