I’ve laid eyes upon some pretty groovy children’s rocking horses in my life as a parent. Well, they haven’t actually been rocking ‘horses’ at all as most have swapped the horse element for a thoroughly modern, abstract aesthetic that combines a neutral colour palette with sleek, flowing and contemporary lines.
However, I’ve never seen anything quite as fantastical as this modern rocker by Swedish company Kalikå. With playful names like Egg and Grasshopper for its two designs, the rocker has a definite organic feel. At first glance, it reminds me of a galloping horse carefully cradling its rider.
Kalikå have stopped producing this rocker and have limited quantities in stock, so to secure your family a soon-to-be collector’s item, head to Scandinavian Brands Online. The rocker is priced at €79.20 (excluding VAT) with delivery to Australia making the grand total about $166. A bargain for a true piece of design genius.
