Earlyears' Baby Rocking Horse has been presented with the coveted 2007 Toy of the Year Award by Creative Child magazine in the Baby and Toddler Ride on Toys category. Through its annual award program, Creative Child recognizes play products that meet its high standards for nurturing creativity, safety, design, durability and social responsibility - products that offer children something "extra" for optimal learning, play and fun.
"It's an honor to have Earlyears' Baby Rocking Horse recognized by Creative Child magazine as a top toddler ride on toy," said Ticia Will, Senior Product Manager at International Playthings, Inc. "The Baby Rocking Horse, like all of the Earlyears products, was designed specifically to promote meaningful development, as well as interaction between caregiver and infant. It is extremely gratifying to have a respected publication like Creative Child recognize Baby Rocking Horse for those specific qualities."
Earlyears' Baby Rocking Horse is designed for toddlers aged 12 months and up. The Baby Rocking Horse jingles when rocked, has a mane and tail that crinkles when squeezed, and features a soft padded plush body. The Baby Rocking Horse, which retails for $109.99, is sturdy, anti-tip ride on toy that features foot rests and safety handles.
