Okay, let’s rock. Not you dad! I’m talking about rocking toys for toddlers. The traditional rocking horse is still alive and well as a toy choice, but in today’s world you have many more options to choose from.
Giraffes, crocodiles, ponies, and even pink elephant rockers are available to keep the toddler in motion. There are suitable and colorful rockers available for any age toddler, from 6 months to 3 years.
Rockers for babies are different than those for toddlers of 1-3 years. They are more like a safety chair that the baby can sit in and be rocked mostly by the parent. They are brightly colored and usually have a toy rail on the front for visual and touch. There are also rockers on the market that have wheels and can double as a stroller.
