That is one of the cutest rockers I have ever seen! I love it so much, William! Absolutely wonderful!

What a nice toddler rocker! I hope you have a family member for this – It would make a great little heirloom to hide away in the attic for the next generation when the current kids have outgrown it. :)

Actually, all my kids have outgrown things like this. When my grandkids start coming along, I’ve already got tons of ideas stored in my head and in a tablet when I can remember to jot them down. Fot the time being though, all the stuff I build (I do eight different rockers at this time and always adding new ones) is for sale.

William, that is very cool. Other than rocking horses, I once made a rocking train ( also a Meisel plan) which was a lot of fun. I’m goning to have to build one of these. Great job.

There are all kinds of rocking toys to make. About the only thing I haven’t made into a rocker is a horse. I’m always looking in magazines and websites for new ideas. My next (new) rockers I think will be a rocking fire truck and a rocking school bus.

Very cool! I wish I had seen this before I started on my rocking boat. Some neat ideas here. I really like the way the rockers look like a wake. Nice job!
