This well-loved rocking horse awakens childhood dreams. While hair and tail have long since been loved away, it is the very worn look that creates the wonderful appeal of this vintage original painted rocking horse. For those who remember the wise words found in the classic children's book, The Velveteen Rabbit,  “Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
This original painted Swedish rocking horse is a wonderful, vintage example of the enduring charm a well-loved toy stil brings. Please examine the close up photos to understand condition, inlcuding faded/chipped paint, wood cracks and separation, etc. While solid, this rocking horse is best for display vs play at this stage of its long life.
