Rocking Horses are Classic Gifts~Best Toy for Tots
Some toys are just classic, and Rocking Horses are definitely on that list. One of the first toys given to toddlers after they can walk is likely to be some sort of ride on toy, and before there were cars, that ride on toy was a horse, usually a rocking horse!
And since the earliest days of man's love affair with horses, people have always make replicas of horses to give to their children, whether from wood like in the old days, or later on, the spring ones, or now, the high tech ones. Riding in and on toys is endlessly fascinating to most toddlers and one of the first things they seek after walking.
And we all know babies and toddlers love to rock, so a rocking horse satisfies all their rocking and riding instincts at once!
Nowadays there are a dizzying amount of rocking horse choices, from wood, to plush, to spring. I remember we had a spring one around for years and years until the last kid was through riding. They loved that Palomino Spring rocking horse but it did take up a bit of space, so I was glad when they outgrew it.
The Plush rocking horses are soft and cuddly so more like a real horse I think. But wood is classic and for purists or those creating certain decors, only wood will do. Here I have arranged them by style for your shopping pleasure.
