I am so excited.
This is my first post, and I was wondering what I should be writing about. As you would have already guessed, this site is all about Unicorns. So, the only right thing to do is write about this beautiful creature. Of course, we would love for you to shop for your favorite unicorn accessories with us, so look out for our future posts as we discuss some of the amazing products in our range.
If you are like me, you would probably already have an incredible unicorn collection. The range of products available is mind-boggling from books to slippers, to mugs, cups, pencils, sticky tape holder, purses, bags…etc.
But first, the most important question.
My friends and I have been discussing this for a while now. Well, we think that they are. But then, some of my friends are a little skeptical.
We (Dad, is the best…he believes in Unicorns too!! How cool!!) decided to investigate to find out the truth…and discovered….
Yes, it is true. It was described as a mythical creature, a beautiful horse with a single horn. Typically, it was a white horse with cloven hooves. These are hooves like what a deer or cows have. Unicorns are also part of mythological stories both in eastern and western culture and there is quite a bit written about these beautiful creatures.
What set’s unicorns apart is their spiral horn and I am sure you would have seen these in images and pictures or, even on your friend’s birthday cake as a topper!
While researching for images for Unicorns, we stumbled upon creatures over the centuries in different cultures, all resembling a unicorn! Check these out:
Description: A mythological one-horned beast with dragon type features. They are creatures which punish evil doers. Qilin is beloved to be a symbol of good fortune and prosperity.
Country: India and Persia
Description: This unicorn-like creature was not very friendly in the animal kingdom and was actually feared.
Description: It is the King of animals and lives on The Holy Mountain.
Unicorns have unique magical gifts. If a unicorn sheds tears or blood, it is meant to heal. However, they are so mystical, it is hard to catch them. Whenever we go to the woods or forest reserves in summer, my friends and I are always on the lookout for these creatures. One day, we are going to see one, and when we do, we will be the first ones to post them here.

There is an Austrian man Antal Festetics who has recorded a unicorn. Okay, so if that sounds crazy, then, how about the claims made by an organization such as The Ontario Science Center! They saw a unicorn in the Don Valley. Now, you may think that this sounds fake but in 2016, scientists discovered fossilized bones of a one-horned animal in Kazakhstan. It is known as the Siberian unicorn. What is so exciting about this discovery is that as early as thirty thousand years ago, they roamed Siberia with humans!
But, what about some ancient explorers of the past? Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Ctesias, a Greek historian and even Confucius also claim to have seen a unicorn. Surely, these are very respected people, they would not lie or were their eyes playing tricks on them? They must have asked themselves the same question, are unicorns real?
There were a few characters such as Twilight Sparke and Rarity who were unicorns and much loved by children. If you remember, there was a character called Rainbow Dash which was not a unicorn but had rainbow wings. In recent times, unicorns have made it into popular culture, and now many images portray rainbow unicorns with rainbow colored hair or unicorns standing against a rainbow display.
In the book, Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, there is a very important comment about unicorns. Here it is below:
Firenze: “Harry Potter, do you know what unicorn blood is used for?”
Harry Potter: “No. We’ve only used the horn and tail hair in Potions.”
Yes, even Harry Potter and his fellow students at Hogwarts used parts of Unicorns for magic.
There are so many other books available which mention unicorns, and in some, the unicorns are the main characters.
Below are a few titles where unicorns make an appearance. How many of these books have you read?
A quick google search by typing up are unicorns real brought up close to 1.8 million results! That is how much information there is out there about unicorns. Come on. Please convince us otherwise that these beautiful creatures do not exist.
The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland to celebrate its belief in myths and legends. Unicorns have also been represented in many coat of arms for centuries.
1. They eat hay and oats just like horses do.
2. They sleep lying down and very punctual in their sleeping habits
3. They are gentle creatures unless provoked.
4. They love helping humans in need as well as other animals, but they are so shy, so only very few humans ever see them.
5. They have no known allergies.
6. You cannot tame a unicorn, unlike a horse. Maybe, that explains why you rarely see them.
