Rocking horses have long been one of the most wished for child's toy on Santa's Christmas List, and recently they have had a bit of a makeover! With the increasing popularity of unicorns amongst children and adults these two magnificent creatures have combined forces, and there is a new must have item on the block- let us introduce you to the unicorn rocking horse!
Unicorn Rockers and Rocking Horses
Unicorn rockers and rocking horses combine all of the elements that children love in the traditional style rocking horses but they have a sprinkling of magical unicorn added! These unicorn rockers and rocking horses are the perfect way to engage a child's imagination, let their thoughts run free and allow them to enter a world of make believe!
Rockers and rocking horses also have a number of hidden benefits to a child's development that you might not be aware of.
Children learn to develop a sense of balance whilst rocking back and forth on a rocking toy. They also develop the muscles in their legs as they push themselves back and forth, and fine tune their motor skills whilst holding onto the handles. All of these movements combined promote co-ordination of the child's limbs that are all working hard together at the same time.
Notably rocking toys are particularly good sensory toys for child who are autistic as they help promote a sense of calm in the child.
Rocking horses are also great for stimulating a child's senses and creativity. They are able to engage in a imaginary world, where they could be riding their horse across a field, or flying their unicorn across the sky! They are also objects that can take on more than a toy status and become 'pets' that they enjoy talking to, cuddling and feeding as if a 'real' animal!

Perfect Unicorn Rockers For Toddlers
We love this gorgeous Labebe Unicorn Rocker, designed for children from 1 years old up to 3. It features a beautifully soft plush pink finish, which feels lovely to touch, and we adore the two tone pink and white colours used. The metallic gold unicorn horn and wings perfectly completes the magical look of this cute rocker, making this design really stand out from others on the market. Safety with children's toys are always all important, and what is particularly well thought out with this rocker is the padded seat that it has with safety harness. The seat gives the young child a solid base with padded sides that comfortably support the child's balance and hold them in place whilst on the rocker. The harness is an added safety feature that gives peace of mind to support the child whilst rocking.
This lovely design will capture your child's imagination whilst providing reassuring comfort to parents regarding its safety. A fantastic design!
If all over pink isn't your thing then perhaps you'd prefer this cute design from HOMCOM. This beautiful design is a classic galloping unicorn. It features a soft white plush body, with flashes of hot pink mane, tail, horn and fluffy padded seat.
Again like the Labebe rocker, this one also has a padded seat with a high back to ensure safety, comfort and security for your little one as they rock to and fro.
This rocker has the lovely added feature of a musical button which is found within the ear of the unicorn, that plays a soft lullaby when pressed to enhance the magic of this beautiful design.
This rocker is designed for children from the ages of 18 months and upwards. We love the timeless feel this unicorn rocker has.

Who says unicorns are only ever pink? Well not so in this beautiful blue, grey and silver design from brand Little Bird Told Me, with their Moonbeam & Rae Rocking Unicorn. This design is refreshingly unique on the market with the blue colour palette, with many other designs opting for pink as their primary colour. We love that this rocking unicorn would appeal to boys and girls in equal amounts.
This magical beast is named Moonbeam and comes with its trusty companion Rae Bear who is tucks gently beside the unicorn, we think this is such a lovely added addition that children will love as they enjoy their adventures together!
The fabric on this rocking horse is beautiful, it has clusters of silver stars against a pale blue background. The mane, saddle and tail are made from a soft chenille, all in all this makes this unicorn rocking horse feel so unique and special. The wooden frame is painted in grey to match the colour palette, this design is really a stand out from all of the others on the market with nothing that comes close in design.
This age range for this toy is from 9 months upwards.
If this is being brought as a present, it also comes with a beautifully presented display box, with carry handles! If you love this design but do want something more traditionally 'girly' then you'll be pleased to know this also comes in a pink version too.

Here's another ride on unicorn design to transport you into your imagination! This design comes in a couple of different variations, both in terms of the colourways and the ages it is suitable from. This pink and white version is so pretty, as is the white and gold version. Like the ride on above this is powered the same way, and uses the child's weight to bounce up and down on the saddle to make the unicorn 'gallop' stimulating the action of riding a real horse.
This toy has a really sweet feature which we really love- it includes a leather ID card for your unicorn, so your child can officially name it, like a pet. Such a lovely idea!
