My 4-year old has been talking to me about getting a puppy for our home. Yeah, she wants to have a pet ever since she saw my cousin’s little poodle during the recent Chinese New Year gathering. I definitely do not think it is a good idea to get a puppy now as she still does not know how to take care of the animal. It is not easy having a pet and it requires a lot of responsibility. Guess she would have to wait till she is a little older. In the meantime, I think this beautiful plush rocking horse could change her mind regarding a pet now. It is a Rock and Trot Rocking Horse from Melissa & Doug and is finished in premium plush fabric. It has a safe, sturdy hardwood base and a comfortably soft saddle. This pony holds up to 150 pounds and is almost as good as a real horse. However, you do not need to get any horse supplies for it so it is much easier to take care than a dog 🙂 I am sure my toddler will be thrilled to have this Rocking Horse.
