The classic per se is of course the rocking horse made of wood which in the meantime, however, has got a lot of competitors. Among the well-known manufacturer Nattou are e.g. a lot of different animals made of plush, which offer your child a comfortable swing feeling. And who knows – it might be memories of your favourite toy which make a rabbit, donkey and horse your favourite animal later on in life. The rocking horse made of wood is nostalgic and a well-received guest in every child’s room. There are no limits to the designs and colours of rocking animals and they often fit to the colours of the rest of your little one’s room. Girls like a tender rosé while all the small boys want to have the obligatory blue. Modern and especially gender-free is a mint green. Your baby is going to feel very comfortable on his/her rocking animal.
Rocking animals are not among the most popular equipment for children for decades without cause, because they are not simply a toy. Your baby starts to be active and is not just pushed like on a regular swing. A lot of different courses of motions are necessary which support your child to be independent. Not to forget the calming effect of a rocking animal. You might have recognized this effect while using a baby bouncer or while pushing your child around in a stroller. It might remind them of the feeling and special way of carrying during your pregnancy.
When purchasing a rocking animal, you should look out for one with a good quality. Price and look should not be crucial for the price – especially when you see the used materials and their manufacture. A rocking animal which has an instruction appropriate for children as well as high-quality materials are approved with the CE seal – well-known manufacturers as Nattou do of course have this seal. Besides the manufacture, safety plays an important role as well. Especially if your baby is under a year, the back rest should be padded softly and protect him/her well. There are also rocking animals equipped with a belt so that your child won’t fall over. However, despite the belt you should properly watch your child and don’t leave him/her unattended. Another mark for a safe toy is that you choose the rocking animal corresponding to the size of your child. He/she will be enabled to get up and from it if the height is suitable. If the horse has a forelock or reins besides the usual handles, there should not be anything else in the way for a lot of fun swinging on a rocking horse.
