Kids love to help out in the kitchen when the end product is cakes, pies, or cookies. Though even the simplest of assigned tasks can turn into a kitchen disaster in the blink of an eye, cutting cookies has always been a pretty reliable assignment. Now, it's even easier for young'ns with this adorable rocking horse cutter.

Once you've got the dough all rolled out, kids just need to plop the $15 Sweet Pony down and rock it back and forth a few times. A classic, scalloped-edge biscuit imprinted with a small heart that's ready for baking is the fruits of their labor. As for cleanup, your kids will be long gone by that point so you can probably just toss it in the dishwasher and keep an eye on the oven. [Animi Causa]
