One of my favorite online toy stores, Gummy Lump, is back with a spectacular giveaway! Remember my review of the awesome Russian Building Blocks from Gummy Lump? I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with them and absolutely love their selection of toys. You can find puzzles, push/pull toys, doll houses, furniture, pretty much whatever your child is into, you can find there!

Other things I like about Gummy Lump:

  • Easy online shopping (filter by age, category, and brand)
  • Huge selection of high-quality toys
  • It’s easy to find the clearance, specials, and toys under $10.00
  • They’re very nice to work with and have great customer service
  • They carry all of my favorite brands like Melissa and Doug, Haba, and Radio Flyer

My Thoughts/Review:

Thanks to Gummy Lump, I was able to review the Melissa and Doug Rock and Trot Plush Rocking Horse.

Check out that expression on my little one’s face! That kind of exuberance is the reward every parent wants to see when they give their children gifts. I am one happy mommy. :-)

When I was first checking around online for the best deal on a quality rocking horse I could find, I thought I wanted a wooden horse. I’m a huge fan of wooden toys and it seemed like a good idea at the time. But when we received this rocking horse, I knew that it was perfect. I love the plush softness of the horse, it’s so much more realistic than a wooden one would have been – and much more comfortable for my toddler. She’s also really into animals right now (she is a zhu-zhu pet addict) so the realistic look really appeals to her. The horse is well-proportioned and well-made, and has a really sweet face. I love the design.

Rock out!

I thought you might like to see Emma rocking – all by herself! She’s 18 months and it’s the perfect size for her.* I was really relieved to see that she could do it all on her own. She’s also figured out how to rock across the room, which I thought was really funny. Watch this video:

*Note that this toy is recommended for ages 2 and up.

Sound Effects:

The Rock and Trot Rocking Horse is totally adorable and a great rocking horse, but that’s not where the coolness ends – squeeze this horse’s ear and you’ll hear a clip-clop, clip-clop, clip-clop and a resounding neigh! It takes two AA batteries that are not included. The battery pack is safely tucked into the horse’s abdomen (it requires a screwdriver to get to the batteries, so safe from tiny prying fingers) beneath a velcro closure. I appreciated that safety measure since Emma watched me curiously and wanted to know exactly what I was doing. Thankfully she can’t get to the battery pack at all.


I couldn’t be happier with this toy and am so glad to be able to recommend such a great product to you all! There are no negatives to it that I can find at all!
