Acting Sheepish

A fresh take on the classic rocking horse

With fleece and sheepskin all over the runways lately, we were psyched to discover LA-based Bright Spark Design churning out these really cool Rocking Sheeps ($175 each). Los Angeles dad and craftsman Max Tyrie garnered inspiration for his stylish spin on the staple nursery fixture from Danish designer Povl Kjer’s Rocking Sheep, but geared his version especially for kids ages 18 months to three years. Handcrafted in Tyrie’s West LA workshop, each sheep is sustainably made-to-order from Baltic birch plywood and reclaimed scrap wood, finished with low-V.O.C water-based polyurethane, and topped with real plush sheepskin. Up next from Bright Spark Designs: a complete collection of baby and kid play things, from simple rattles to giant forts with zip lines and climbing walls.

Special discount for StrollerTraffic LA readers: free shipping until the end of March 2012 on any Rocking Sheep delivered within the US (a savings of $25). Enter coupon code STROLLERLA2012 at checkout.
