By far the most popular product on our entire range, the Thornewood Rocker has been our bestseller for three years running, and it is not hard to see why. It is one of the most versatile children’s toys around today!
Included with the purchase of a Thornewood Rocker, is a full colour booklet (in PDF format at the moment) full of ideas for using this versatile toy to promote all of the above skills. Yet, at the end of the day, all you really need to do is JUST ADD CHILDREN! The potential for open-ended play is just about limitless: children rock on it and in it, slide off it, push a friend or sibling around in it, use it as a bridge or a cave or a doll’s cradle, race their toy cars in it, turn it into pirate ship, a tunnel, a table…oh, the possibilities!
Double the fun with TWO Rockers, and with four you can build a large circle house for many little friends to play in!
The Thornewood Rocker is shaped into a perfect curve from thick, premium-quality wood with variations in colour, wood grain, texture and natural markings. These add to the unique, handmade quality of your Rocker.
Each Rocker is handmade with love using a 3-day long process to bend and shape it into a gorgeous curve. It is then sanded smooth and polished, ready for many years of adventurous play! A care guide is included in your PDF booklet to help you keep your Thornewood Rocker in good shape.
