But because I love him (and there’s a recommended 65 lb weight limit), I didn’t sit on him.
He can thank his lucky horseshoes for that.
Standing just over a foot tall (riding height), the pony is made for the littlest ones, and it’s easy for them to get on and off its back. Plus, the soft plush body is much more comfortable to ride than a traditional wooden rocking horse.
I also like that the rocking rail is made of plastic. My old wooden rocking horse cracked and left jagged splinters, so I appreciate that this one is much safer.
The one thing to be cautious about is that it’s likely to scoot across the floor a little bit when kids are rocking on it. It will move less on carpets, but it will still move, and I can remember as a child that I wanted it to scoot. I’m pretty sure all kids love that! 😉
Another fun thing about the pony is that it talks, sings, and moves its mouth. But no worries, there’s volume control and an on/off switch in the battery pack (3 AA batteries included) right by his mane.
The only thing I thought was a little odd is that the pony sings in a male voice, but talks in a female voice. Not a big deal; it just seems a little silly.
I wanted you to be able to see how the pony moves its mouth while it sings and talks, so I made a little video.
You fell in love with it too, didn’t you?
