Vintage Creative Playthings Rocking Beauty Hobby Horse

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!

Right now they also have a couple of Cosco modern plastic chairs (green and white).

And I’m trying to figure out where I could put this incredible Big Bird poster!

I have a Rocking Beauty by Creative Playthings, but the colored wood is blue and it doesn’t have a ball at the end of the handle. It has a natural dowel that forms a cross with the blue handle. Do you know anything about that model? The engraved signature says “Creative Playthings Made in U.S.A. with a face next to it.
