It’s pretty hard to re-imagine something as simple as a rocking horse. A toy that’s been around for centuries, and has typically been limited to a wooden design going back as far as we can remember.

Designer Felix Monza has taken the iconic design and re-engineered it into one of the coolest toys we’ve ever seen. Dubbed ‘the Moto Rocker’ this new toy is sure to make your kid the coolest on the block thanks to clean lines and racer-inspired look. That is, if you can get over the price tag.
