34 Rocking Horse Variations

From Stringed Swaying Seats to Activist Rocking Bears

— April 7, 2014 — Life-Stages
One of the most iconic toys of all time is the wooden rocking horse; a ton of rocking horse variations have helped the classic toy stay popular.

Almost everyone I know remembers playing on their rocking horse, but these days, kids have a lot more options than just horses. The toys come in shapes and sizes of all kinds; you can ride a frog, a dog, a bear or a bunny rocker. Even Fictional animals and insects have made there way into some rockers designs.

It's easy to change the size and shape of rockers but some of these designs go further incorporating odd materials and extra functionality. Wood is the most popular material but some rockers in this list are made from metal, cardboard and even bales of hay.
