Sometimes when you’re looking for a great gift or addition to your little one’s toy collection; it’s a good idea to think simple and forget the toys and play gadgets with all the lights, buttons, sounds, and other additions. Instead think back to some of the more simple pleasures and let your child enjoy some of the toys you loved as a child.

Rocking Toys

A rocking horse is a great example of this type of toy. The simple rocking motion is something most child find soothing and what is a simple riding toy can turn into a whole lot more as your child grows older. Think back to your own rocking horse, did you pretend you were a cowboy, messenger, warrior or other character as you “rode” your horse? The pretend play value a rocking horse can bring is endless.

Use these tips and give your child a fun toy that will let them expand his or her imagination instead of a yet another toy that is so advanced it does everything but play for the child. Give your child the gift of a toy that can literally do anything your child imagines it can – and give them the fun of a rocker!
