Little Tikes Little Tikes Rocking Cow
Advantages: Stable and well made
Disadvantages: Needs some supervision
This was a second birthday present for my daughter from her grandfather so I'm not exactly sure what he paid for it but on checking a couple of websites it is priced between £35-45 depending on where you look. In my opinion it should be recommended for her age as a minimum however a younger child could certainly use it but with careful supervision as they could easily fall out of it. The actual recommended age range is 1-3 with a maximum weight of 23kg. I guess it depends on the size of your child and how well developed they are.
The seat is quite deep and there is support for the lower back however the sides are open and while it would take a lot or effort and strength to tip this in a vertical direction either over teh front or back it is easier to fall out of the side however again I have never seen this fall over onto my daughter even though a couple of times she has exited it less than elegantly. However I have to say that she really loves this rocking cow, she ofetn gives it a hug when walking past it and she loves to rock back and forwards under her own steam as she is little miss independent at the moment.
It is an outdoors toy however we also keep in in the conservatory for when the weather is not good enough for outside use, the cow cover is material and is easily removed for when it needs a good wash which is on a regular basis unfortunately as it can get a bit mucky and the white patches that dominate certainly do show the marks. The body of the cow is made from moulded plastic and there are no sharp edges but it is a solid construction and hard wearing to boot.
There is no assembly required however you do have to remove the two handles to get the cover off however that is an easy job and after washing it retains its shape and there is no shrinkage so the cover is easy to get back on.
I love the design of this toy, it has lots of bright colours and the cow has a lovely happy face. My little one loves to rock on it for ages and she also seems to include it in her role playing as if it were a real cow judging by the way she chunts at it and pets it. She has already got a fair bit of use out of this toy and of course she is getting some exercise as well.
