These are Dalahäst (Dalecarlian horse or Dala horse) models. They are traditionally made in the form of a horse but have been modified to other animals due to its popularity. These are statues right outside of a Butik in Dalarna, but are available in much smaller scales. Originally, the Dalahäst was a children’s toy that was made out of wood. Now, it is one the most iconic symbols for Dalarna and Sweden in general.

 

Maybe one day if you go, you can ride the Dalahäst and take one home!
