Breyer Wish and Wonder – History of the Breyer Christmas Mare and Foal Set

Breyer Wish and Wonder – Christmas Mare and Foal

Breyer Wish and WOnder 712279

A few pictures of a grey Breyer Misty appeared in the Back In the Saddle catalog and some other places. Now, that Misty is officially available for purchase directly from Breyer’s website! She is being released with the Stormy foal in a  set called Breyer Wish and Wonder 712279. A number of collector’s have expressed distaste for the look of the unpainted plastic that Breyer typically uses for white markings. This was an especially big problem with Dundee who’s mapping sometimes looked downright strange alongside the bare plastic. I noted that Emerson, the latest Breyer 2018 Premier Club model that the white markings were painted. The Breyer Wish and Wonder appear to be chalky, meaning that their white is painted on and is not bare plastic. Bravo Breyer! I personally do not collect the Breyer Christmas Mare and Foal sets but I might make an exception for Wish and Wonder. They look really nice! Misty is a lightly dappled grey and Stormy is and adorable sooty buckskin or bay pinto. The chalky white basecoat compliments their fuzzy hair and make me want to hug them!

The Breyer Wish and Wonder set is available for anyone to purchase on Breyer’s website. You don’t need to be a member of any Breyer’s Clubs. Here is the direct link to Wish and Wonder. The description from Breyer’s website in its entirety reads:

A LIMITED EDITION BREYERHORSES.COM EXCLUSIVE

Every child (or child-at-heart) wants a pony for the holidays, and now you can bring home two! With their chalky coats, this delightful mare and foal set will bring joy to collectors of all ages.

Chincoteague Ponies can have many different coat colors and patterns, just like the ones seen on this island-dwelling pair. The windswept mare Wish has a beautifully-shaded dapple-grey coat, and her sweet filly Wonder has a sooty buckskin pinto coat.

This set comes in a festive satin gift bag, making it a beautiful gift to give and receive! One per order.

Ages 8+

The Breyer Wish and Wonder set is priced at $50. Domestic shipping is FREE <gasp>.  Historically, Breyer has offered Free Shipping on the Gambler’s Choice Christmas Decorator but not on the Christmas Mare and Foal Sets.  The Christmas Mare and Foal sets also came with cute winter blankets (including realistic working buckles!) but Wish and Wonder do not have blankets but they do come with a festive cloth bag.

2014 was the first year that Breyer offered the Christmas Mare and Foal set. The first offering was the Vixen and Blitzen set. Sadly, this set seemed to have a lot of staining from the horses being shipped with the blankets on despite that protective plastic layer (Athos and Kris Kringle anyone?!). They were the Breyer Running Mare and Running Foal molds in matching bay pinto.
