Classic and timeless, rocking horses are an iconic symbol of childhood that people of all generations can relate to. Whether it’s sitting in a nursery or getting plenty of use in the playroom, a rocking horse adds a certain aesthetic appeal to the room.
Wee Rock Toy Co. has put a new spin on the classic rocking horse by making them sustainably in a convenient new design. Catherine O’Sullivan and Michael Galea, founders of Wee Rock Toy Co., used their architectural training to create a classic rocking horse that has only six pieces, allowing them to be shipped flat and assembled with no tools, no glue and no hardware!
These unique rockers are crafted from bamboo plywood – an ultra high quality, renewable and child-safe material. Unlike most plywood, the bamboo plywood used by Wee Rock Toy Co. uses a soy-based adhesive that emits zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and is a responsibly-sourced renewable material. The bamboo parts are simply finished with a food-grade butcher-block conditioner. And all of these toys are cut, finished, and packaged in the United States!
These rockers are adorable, and currently available in five designs, including a classic horse, gorilla, elephant, rhino, and giraffe. See the designs here.
Each of these five designs has the same critical dimensions: the seat is 13″ off the ground and the assembled toy is approximately 13″ W x 33″ L – making the rockers ideal for kids from ages 18-48 months.
