When I got an email asking if we could review an animal rocker from Little Bird Told Me I couldn't resist but say yes. They looked too cute! I picked the snail rocker, it came in a few pieces but don't be scared. I managed to attach the foot rests and rocker part in a few minutes and we were ready to go. It comes with everything you need to put it together including screws, a little allen key and of course some instructions which were very easy to follow.
The rocker seems very well made. The quality of the fabric and wood used to make the rocker is amazing. It looks like a toy that would last many years and many siblings. The snail is a gorgeous yellow, pink and purple with some lovely flower prints. Very beautiful and girly. The rocker is smaller than I thought but still the perfect size. It has lovely padding and feels soft to the touch.
Once the rocker is together your child is free to play. They can sit and rock, just sit and play and play with the little house on the back. I think the house is Paige's favourite part. She loves putting things in it and taking them out again. The house also has a little window which paige likes to put her hand through to try and get whats inside.
The antenna of the snail are also part of the fun. One has a squeaky toy and the other has a crinkly material. Both are fun and stimulating for your child. Paige hasn't quite figured out how to squeak the toy inside the antenna but she loves when we do it for her and loves to play with the other one. She sometimes holds the antenna instead of the handles!
The rocker also comes with a little snail rattle. Paige loves this little rattle and carries it around with her for most of the day. Such a cute little extra as most of the other rockers I have seen don't come with an extra little toy. This has the little rattle part inside the house on its back.
The rocker is suitable from 9 months but I'm sure a younger child could sit on it with adult support. Paige is quite a big 12 month old and still has a lot of room left on the rocker. As you can see she loves to just sit on it and chill out so it must be very comfy!
Paige hasn't quite figured out how to climb onto the rocker the right way. She tends to end up facing the wrong way playing the house and the little rattle. But she can climb off the rocker by herself. She is about the size of an 18 month old maybe a little taller now and she can reach the floor very comfortably when she is sat properly on the rocker.
The rocker is priced at £85 and you can purchase it HERE. You also get free delivery with orders over £50 which is great. I think the rocker is priced very well. For a toy that is well made and will last a long time I don't think you can complain.
There is also a bear and a caterpillar available if the snail is a little too girly for your liking. If none of those appeal there are some gorgeous looking rocking horses.
Thanks for reading
