I bought this for my 8 month old. I obviously cannot leave him unattended on it and he cannot climb on it himself, but if I sit him on it he knows to hold the handles and I can rock him on it. He loved it. First off it took only about 3 minutes to put together....the handles just twist on and the horse only had a couple of nuts that attach it to the base. This was a relief because everything else we have received from overstock has came in 500 pieces :) The horse is of good quality and very cute. It is solidly stuffed yet has a soft feel. I am happy with my purchase overall!
We bought this for our youngest daughter's second birthday so she hasn't seen it or played with it yet. It was not well packaged from the manufacturer, the horse was actually upside down in the box with the bolts sticking through the box. When I first pulled it out I noticed that the neck seemed like they had messed up the styrofoam (or whatever gives the horse it's body) but I discovered there is actually a button in the left ear and when it is pressed the horse whinnies and makes other sounds while the head and tail move. The holes in the rocker are cut too wide, or the horse's legs are too close together as my husband and I had to really fight with getting them in and ended up splitting a small piece out of the crossbar to get the bolt in. We still think she is going to love this pony! Just hope it will last!
- How accurate was the sizing? Pretty close
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? The legs had to be forced into the base. Holes do not line up with bolts in the bottom of the feet.
It looks to be a beautiful rocking horse. As stated above I have no reason to think different as we have been more than satisfied with all the things we purchase at Overstock. If there is a problem I certainly will let you know when I wrap it.
- How accurate was the sizing? I have not opened the box yet
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It looks fine in picture and it is unopened
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? will let you know when we are ready to wrap it.
While my granddaughter will not yet ride her Christmas horsie. I feel like it was a good value. The only thing I would change is a volume control for the whinny-ing and hoof beat sounds. It's pretty loud and adds to the intimidation factor. BTW she is 22 months old.
I purchased this horse for my 18 month old son for Christmas. I was initially surprised at how light the box was that I received and didn't think it could be the horse. When I opened the box, I was disappointed to find a horse that I believe to be very poor quality. Everything is very cheaply made. I would not recommend this item!
