Why Didn't They Make These Ride-On Horses When We Were Kids?

While we settled for rocking horses and stick horses, the newest generation gets to play on these awesome ride-on horses. We're jealous. 

Were you lucky enough to have a rocking horse as a child? Maybe you were even super lucky and had one of those palomino rocking horses on springs so you could really get bouncing. Or maybe you had a stick horse that you galloped around the yard with.

As fun as these toys were, they lacked one major feature - you couldn't really go anywhere with them. At least, they were nowhere near as cool as these ride-on horses are.

These ride-on horses made by UFREE combine your traditional rocking horse with a bicycle-type toy. Not only can you ride these horses, but you can self-power them so that they roll along on any smooth surface.

Just stand in the stirrups and sit; the motion propels the horse, so not only is it fun, it's a good workout too. Plus you'll have a chance to practice your posting. You can use them indoors and out, giving kids a true sense of freedom when they're out playing and riding.

I don't know about you, but I would have killed for one of these when I was a kid! They're adorable and soft and feature detailed saddles and bridles.

You know that any lucky kid who gets one of these ride-on horses will spend just as much time grooming the horse as they will riding.
