Inspired by the curvy-shaped dodo bird, this Dodo Rocking Bird by Finnish designer Oiva Toikka is a playful take on a traditional children's rocking horse. The colorful and minimalistic bird is big enough to safely carry toddlers and children. With its ergonomic and sleek design, the Dodo rocks back and forth to keep kids entertained.

Made of rotational-moulded polyethylene, this rocking horse does not require complex assembling and will not fall apart. It is durable enough for outdoor use, for a nice day out on the lawn or on the back porch. Traditional rocking horses are detailed and often wood-made and this may not necessarily match the modern family's home decor. Oiva Toikka recreates traditional concepts with a sleek and new appeal.
