As a child I was totally in love with the rocking horse that used to sit in my GP’s waiting room. The Jasper Rocking Horse by Little Bird Told Me with smart woven check fabric body, leatherette saddle and soft faux-suede mane and tail looks absolutely gorgeous and a lot more comfortable than the large wooden beast I used to play on! 

At £245.00 it’s not cheap, but it’s a toy that could stay in the family for generations.
