Rocking horses have been around for generations and with good reason. They are fun, they are great looking and they inspire imaginative play without taking up much room.

Today there are many styles of rocking horses to choose from. There are traditional pony styles with stirrups and handles, set on a rocker base. Some are plush, some are wood and for the tiniest riders, a low riding plastic horse.

Unicorns have become a popular theme in girls’ bedroom décor, and there are several to choose from in the rocking horse stable. And don’t limit yourself to traditional horse styles – there are rocking donkeys and rocking zebras, too. Fantasy carousel horses are available, too.

Some rocking horses feature battery operated noises – a simple squeeze of the ears and you’ll hear realistic whinnies and nickers just like a real horse.

For a really authentic experience, there is even a mobile versions; rather than rockers, this version has wheels. The rocking action makes the horse’s legs move and propels the horse forward. It’s the next best thing to a real live pony!

All rocking horses are sturdy and safe. Solidly constructed of durable woods, the non slip rocker bases are designed to be tip proof and secure. Wooden dowel handles are sized for kids and the saddles are shaped for a good fit. Most rocking horses are designed for children over the age of three. Models that sit lower to the ground are more appropriate for younger riders.

As with all toys, parental supervision is recommended.
