I ran into a mom and pop shop that sells old school classic toys and saw this Rody Horse. The Italian made inflatable vinyl horse is free of latex and Phthalates, making him popular with parents. Priced at $43, you can also purchase an air pump for $8.
I told the shop owner I had never seen one and she was shocked and excitedly declared that it is one of her best sellers since kids love to bounce around her store on them. Most parents eventually cave in to the whines and pleas.
The smiling lil steed comes in 11 sprightly colors that are guaranteed to add some spunk to any decor. And should you decide to turn the bouncer into a rocker, you can buy a rocking base for an extra $29. As soon as I make more room in my daughter's stable, I am purchasing one of these ponies! And I can't promise that I won't try it out myself.
