We are always amazed at the interest and opinions adults have concerning children's toys. Itís as if we have to design such projects with two people in mind; the adult who will build the items, and the kids who will play with them.
BONUS PLANS: Save more than $21 and receive plans for our popular Rocking Motorcycle and our Rocking Cow projects as well.
Well, this rocking horse project fulfils both objectives. The project is easy enough for most parents and grandparents to build, and rugged enough to last for a generation or two of the wildest of riders.
It was decided early on that the rocking horse shouldn't look too thin or spindly, so the body and the legs were made of 1-1/2-inch thick stock. This material lends the horse a natural appearance and makes the back wide enough to sit on comfortably.
After the body has been built, the project can be made to look more realistic with a few added extras - two glass eyes, ears, mane, and tail. And, donít resist adding a leather saddle and bridle.
All our plans come with a materials list, cutting schedule, plenty of illustrations, and step-by-step instructions to guide you from beginning to end. Pattern No. 920140.
