The rocking horse is a designer’s reply to the challenge of conventional rocking horses. It is designed to provide fun, safety, and comfort: it is soft and appealing, very well cushioned, extremely difficult to overturn, sturdy, and all of its surfaces are well rounded. At the same time, our rocking horse manages to have the irrevocable appeal of a plush toy. Even the youngest children are drawn to its soft and inviting presence. They immediately recognize a rocking horse in its simplified shape.
