Ok, it's expensive. We'll get that out of the way first: it is a $265. rocking toy. We have refrained from the high design/high pricetag stuff this month - as a parent we know how it is....but today is the grand finale of kids design so we're going for it.
This looks FUN to play on and it's nice to look at as well as beautifully made. Which means it will be loved, won't get stuck in a closet and will last to be passed on to friends or handed down to the next generation. Made in Germany from birch with a woven red nylon seat, it is described on Modern Seed's site as being "sculpture you can ride" that is appropriate for ages 1-5. Olga Rocker, $265, from Modern Seed.
