This handcrafted rocking horse is non-toxic, water and heat resistant and built very sturdy to hold up to 150 lbs. Constructed of Ponderosa White Pine and hand rubbed with teak oil for a beautiful finish.
It measures 42 inches long, 33 1/2 inches high and 14 3/4 inches wide. The seat measures 23 inches off the floor. Makes a great toy for that little buckaroo, or a decorative piece throughout the house. The wood has been burned to make the spots.
This rocking horse is very sturdily built. They are capable of holding up to 300 pounds safely, If really abused, we would recommend only up o 150 pounds, which means we want to limit that kind of use to young children.
Our handcrafted wooden toys are designed and built with the safety of each child’s safety in mind.
Our rocking horse is balanced so that when a young child is positioned on the horse they are slid forward to hold onto the handle to secure themselves well. This helps prevent sitting back too far, which could create potential falling off too easily. We also do not put a foot rest on for a very young child to position their feet on. As a very young child’s leg muscles are very strong, and would give them the ability to force rock the horse and maybe throw themselves off. As the child grows, their feet will eventually reach down to the rocker, at which point they then will have control to move he rocker across the floor. (Especially carpet-this is really “cool” if you as me),
The size of this horse is 30 inches long, 26 inches high (at the head) and 11 inches wide. The seat is 16 inches off the floor. The weight of the horse is 18-19 pounds. The rocking horse is completely assembled and then the head and tail are removed for shipping purposes. So there is little assembly required with only a philips screw driver.
Our wooden toys are created for the safety and education o all. While having fun,learning skills are apparent. These wooden toys help develop dexterity, hand and eye coordination, color, shape, size identification, problem solving and reasoning skills, plus many others,
