The new Wary Meyers Kids Shop has a vintage Creative Playthings Rocking Beauty Hobby Horse (from 1964) for a mere $1200.
If the vintage version is too pricey, I DID find the modern remake (called the Red Ball Rocker) still listed at Genius Jones for $265. It is no longer being made by Knu however, so this may just be some stock that they have left over. I’d call and check if they still have it before I put in my order.
For more information about the history of this modernist rocking horse, read Greg’s post on daddytypes.
Even if you’re not in the market for a vintage Rocking Beauty, you’re going to want to bookmark the Mary Meyers new kids shop as it is sure to have all kinds of wonderful vintage treasures. I was tickled to find Robie among their offerings. We’ve got one of these mechanical banks in my son’s room!
And I’m trying to figure out where I could put this incredible Big Bird poster!
