Little Tikes Rocking Horse
Advantages: Very popular with kids
Disadvantages: None found yet
My daughter has been fortunate enough to receive this rocking horse for her 1st birthday back in February. This was an unexpected present and I must admit I probably would have never purchased it if she hasn't been given it. This horse immediately got my daughter's attention. Well of course it did, it is pretty hard to miss. She has got bright pink version which I love, I have actually managed to find out that this particular shade of pink is called magenta pink.
This horse is aimed for babies for 12 months+ which is appropriate in my opinion however this may also depend on the individual child. My daughter was very confident on her feet and walked since she was about 10.5 months and so when she received this horse, she was able to climb on it by herself.
This horse if made out of hard moulded plastic and as I mentioned above, we have pink version but I believe there are other colours available to purchase. Horse has two grip handles, eyes and low seat with raised back support. It is very lightweight; my daughter is able to move it around although she is bit bigger/taller for her age. Approximate weight of this product is 3kg (as per my scales) and its measurements are H43, W86, D29cm.
I wasn't very sure about whether she will like it. She was looked happy and excited with her new present so I put her on it. The response we received was quite unexpected. She didn't look happy at all and started crying. We have taken her off the horse which calmed her down and let her get familiar by herself. It only took her 5 minutes before she went back to the horse this time climbed on and immediately figured out how to rock it. I must say from that moment she loved the horse. One day doesn't go by without her sitting/rocking on it. She hasn't had the problem getting on/off due to low seat however they have been few times she stumbled over when she has not been careful enough.
The rocker is available from many kids toy stores, Argos or on-line. It sells for around £23, you might be able to find it cheaper on eBay if you hunting for absolute bargain.
I do not have anything bad to say about this toy. Although it doesn't play any sounds or music it teaches kids co-ordination. This toy is very good quality and also seems to be un-destructible (only judgin from experience when older kids played with it) and I can honestly see this toy lasting years. Not sure about weight restriction however i have sat on it and it still going strong so no worries there.
This was a brilliant present my daughter received and I would pay even full price for this. My daughter had it for 5 months now and still plays with it, this toy proves to be popular with her friends too when they come to visit.
5/5 stars from me
Summary: Great toy highly recommended
