My son has loved to rock since he was an infant. As soon as he could sit up by himself he was rocking away to his favorite music. His daddy and I have loved watching him enjoy dancing and swaying and just loving music and movement. His favorite toy at his first daycare was this rocking horse on springs that he could ride all day long and be happy. We quickly picked up on this and purchased a race car that rocked, but as soon as he starting walking we converted it into a walker for him to practice. I have been longing to buy him a real rocking horse that he could play with. Well, my dreams have been answered by Hayneedle.
Hayneedle.com includes 220 stores and counting, each devoted to a single product category. Best of all, you can shop all of them with one global shopping cart. From hammocks at hammocks.com to dart boards at – you guessed it -dartboards.com, Hayneedle dives deeply into selection; each store showcases true variety.
Unlike brick and mortar retail stores that are limited by shelf space, Hayneedle has virtually endless space. This allows our buyers to search the globe for the finest selection, best value, and unparalleled choices in products for your home, work, and play.
I recently contacted Hayneedle to see if they would be interested in being featured in my Holiday Gift Guide and I was very excited when they accepted. I looked at their over 220 stores to find the perfect kids gift for the holidays when I came across erockinghorses.com. I immediately knew that I wanted to finally get TJ his rocking horse. What I didn’t realize was going to be a problem was the vast product selection that they offer. It made for a very tough decision. Here are some of the cute rocking horses (and animals) that I almost chose:
I chose the Plush Colt Rocking Horse with Sound from Rockabye!
The goals of Rockabye are simple. They use the highest quality woods and most luxurious fabrics from around the world to create heirloom-quality rockers. Creativity is the guiding principle of their company. Their team of designers and quality managers work side by side until they are satisfied that they’ve not only created the most unique rockers, but rockers that exude a whimsical charm that sets them apart in an industry full of the ordinary.
This little colt has to be one of the cutest things I have seen in a long while (besides my little TJ of course). He looks so happy and friendly and one can’t help but to fall in love with the little horse. I love that it is a classic horse but with an updated plush look to him. My little TJ is quite taken with stuffed animals and I know that this is the perfect fit for him. He is surrounded by plush so I can be confident that he can’t hurt himself (unless of course he falls off).
The colt came already assembled (much to daddy’s delight) and was ready to rock as soon as the box was opened. He features a red saddle and bright yellow bridle along with a red scarf. I love how colorful he is. He just makes you happy looking at him!
What is even more amazing is that this rocking horse does more than just rock. He plays four educational songs to help your little one learn his alphabet, numbers and colors. There is even a fourth song that is just for fun to help your little guy get a groove on while he is rocking away. Parents have the option of turning the sounds off by a control located in a Velcro pouch near the colt’s chest. What a wonderful way for TJ to get an extra dose of education while have fun!
As you can tell we are very happy with TJ’s new rocking horse. Delivery of the toy was fantastic, assembly was non-existent and the joy that it will bring to our house is immeasurable. Be sure to visit Hayneedle for all of your shopping needs. With over 220 stores you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for.
You can purchase the Plush Colt Rocking Horse with Sound from Rockabye at Hayneedle for $109.99.
