I picked up this little sled from Target earlier this week. (they also had a sleigh that miiight work for Schleich/CollectA sized horses)
I’m always on the lookout for 1:9ish scale pieces for my collection, and thought this would work ok.
It’s cute as is, but I wanted to try customizing it. It was only held together with screws so it came apart pretty easily.
After sanding the wood pieces, I gave them a couple coats of paint and some matte varnish.
Once that was dry, I screwed it back together and added a new cord. Here’s how it’s looking now. Not bad for a $3 ornament!
Off for a test run!
My dolls have no cold weather gear… I should fix that. 🥶

What a clever idea! And it turned out so well. Thank you for the idea – I’ll head to Target Monday and see if I can find one!
A lucky find. But I think the sled is lucky too: It found an owner who brought out its real self, its true spirit — or at least a very good version thereof!
Good find! I bought two. LOL.
