Gear: Ekorre Rocking Moose

The antlers make great handles too...
What is it?
Ekorre Rocking Moose

How does it work?
Once you've spent a half hour assembling the flat-packed 15-piece (plus hardware) moose with the provided allen key & your phillips screwdriver, it rocks.

Why is it good?
I fell for the design--I love red & the moose is a nice twist on the traditional horse design. It's also a nice height, taller than some rocking horses I've seen, so it'll theoretically last a kid longer. At 16 months, Sprout was barely able to throw a leg over though, so unless your kid is tall, they'd require help to use it at a younger age. It's quite sturdy & the black plastic pieces under the ends of the rockers limit it so the child can't go too crazy riding it.

Where can I get it?
Ikea, in case you hadn't figured out by the Swedish name (though oddly, Google Translate tells me ekorre means squirrel).

How much does it cost?

*I didn't get any compensation for writing this review, just like the toy.
