Your Kid Will Not Appreciate This Stylish Designer Rocking Horse

Inspired by the strong steel I-beams used in the construction of towering skyscrapers, Japanese design studio Nendo started with that simple design, but then warped it into one of the most beautiful looking rocking horses you’ve ever seen.

The use of clear plastic makes the H-Horse almost invisible, but it’s still strong enough to support the weight of a toddler as they ride off into an imaginary sunset. For parents who want a nursery decorated to look like a baby’s room photographed for a magazine, this is a must-have accessory. Just keep in mind that one day it will end up covered in fingerprints, slobber, and peanut butter.

Designed specifically for Kartell, it’s safe to assume this rocking horse isn’t going to be as reasonably priced as toys from Playskool or Fisher Price are. It will almost certainly cost a small fortune, which means you probably won’t want your kids ever actually touching it.

Hmmmm..... first of all, this is super costly to make. If this is made of acrylic, the material cost itself will make it a collectible right out of the factory, or a brat out of an innocent toddler. Secondly, it will break, and when it does, your kid will get hurt, like really bad. Even if someone thinks that it is still a good idea to get this for his/her kid, it will get scratched up in no time, then it will lose its elegance, which is probably the reason it was purchased in the first place. As a designer there is not a single good reason to make this, even as a prototype. For shits and giggles? Perhaps, but ain’t nobody got time for that.
