THE WOODEN ROCKING HORSE

In spite of the profusion of “newer”, more interactive technologies, including the Internet and mobile phones, a wooden rocking-horse is much more than just a toy of the moment. A rocking-horse is a wonderful medium for a child’s imagination and can occupy a special place among a child’s playthings.

A rocking-horse can remain a firm favourite. It never gets tired and is always ready to take the young rider on another exciting, secure, imaginative gallop.  A rocking-horse will potentially outlast the young rider to become a family heirloom and be greeted by future generations of young riders, who in turn can ride into their own imaginative, make-believe adventure.

Toddler’s Rocking Horse

The Toddler’s Rocking horse is based on the design adaption of the seventeenth-century slab-sided style of rocking horse by Anthony Drew, The Rocking Horse Maker.

This design is ideal for younger riders. Because it is low to the ground children are able to climb on unaided from a very early age, about 10 months or so. The rider has complete control, and may wish to just rock gently or enjoy a very exciting ride.

This rocking horse is available in several styles.
