Next time your child whines "I want a pony", consider these Rocking Squares by Frederik Roijé. Albeit as exspensive as a real horse, these will last forever.
I've been a fan of Dutch designer Roijé for sometime now. His "Holy Homes", two porcelain birdhouses, caught my eye, several years ago and since then I try to keep up with his inventive designs.
His Rocking Squares are a reinvention of the traditional Hobby Horse or Rocking Horse. The wood rocking horse is covered with a durable coating, is available in three sizes and two color options.
A stunning combination of interactive sculpture and hip toy, the Rocking Square is available for purchase (at a price befitting original art, rather than a child's toy) and ships directly from his Holland studio. Shipping time is 6-8 weeks.
The available sizes and prices are as follows.
Dimensions (l x w x h) & Prices
large, black or white, 250 x 75 x 180 cm = €8200 ($10,975.70 USD)
medium, black or white, 180 x 60 x 130 cm = €6200 ($8298.70 USD)
small, black or white, 130 x 40 x 90 cm = €4500 ($6023.25 USD)
