Hoohobbers offer a lot of really great products for baby and toddler including baby gear and other products such as chairs, rockers, diaper bags, easels, soft toy boxes, bedding, and so much more. Hoohobbers products are made in Chicago and their fabulous products have been offered since 1981. Not only does Hoohobbers only offer safe products for baby and toddler, just about anything can be personalized with your child’s name! Looking through their website, I found most of their products to be unique!
I was given the opportunity to work with Hoohobbers on a review and I am thrilled to have the opportunity! Our little guy received the opportunity to try one of their Folding Rocking Horses which come in three great colors! You can buy it in white/pastel, calipso, or in primary colors.
The Folding Rocking Horse from Hoohobbers is very lightweight only weighing 5 pounds but safely holds a child up to 75 pounds! Better yet, “it’s the only rocking horse to ever win the juvenile industry’s BEST DESIGN AWARD” ! The one we chose to review was the primary colored horse and it is so cute!
I love that it features a “gentle curve” because this allows your child to rock safely without being able to rock to hard causing the rocking horse to rock too far forwards or backwards. The footrests are molded into the plastic on the bottom of the frame whcih I think is great. The handle bars are also molded on the plastic as well. Not only does this mean that there isn’t much assembly to the rocking horse but it also means there is never any worry about handles or footrests falling off!
As you can see from the images above, the design is perfect. At least I think so. After my son was given the opportunity to try it out, I think it would be very hard to tip it over. The fabric seat is perfect for holding his weight and allows him to sit comfortably on it. There really wasn’t anything I had to put together either. The horses head was already attached but if you have to attach yours, it velcros on really easily and attaches to the “body” of the horse. The velcro is also very tough too and I haven’t had any problems what-so-ever with it. It has never come undone or anything. I love that the head is soft and plush too! The only thing that I had to do was slide the back of the horses “body” (the seat part) onto the back of the frame. Then simply lift up the top of the horse until the crisscross frame bars lock into place. The pivot joints also lock into place.
And of course, it folds up! All you have to do is separate the crisscrossed bars a little to get them out of the locked position to fold it up. It is NOT an easy feat for a little one to do because the structure of the frame. At first I even had a hard time until I got used to it. That being said, it’s not difficult for an adult to do but I really don’t see a child being able to do it. My 5 year old can’t even do it – I let him try just so I would know that he couldn’t. If he wasn’t able to do it, I knew our little guy wouldn’t be able too. Of course since it folds up flat, it’s so easy to store when not in use. Also since it is so lightweight, it’s very easy to transport!
Our little guy loves it! I love it too! It’s definitely a VERY sturdy rocking horse and I absolutely love the design and the safety features. We also got his name personalized on the seat of the horse too. I chose the heat transfer (you can also get an embroidered personalization) because I thought the heat transfer looked great with the letters all in different primary colors. I haven’t noticed any of the letters having any wear and tear at all! We absolutely love it – a big two thumbs up for Hoohobbers!!
