Plan Toys Tori Folding Rocking Horse Review {Giveaway Tomorrow!}



As a little girl I had few toys, but some of my best memories are that of my wooden rocking horse. I've always wanted one for my kids, imagining how much fun it would be for them. Our small living quarters made that next to impossible though, there is only room for so much large kids toys. Enter Tori, the Plan Toys folding rocking horse. Whoever designed it is genius! 


The Tori rocking horse is rather compact even when unfolded, but it only takes a few seconds to have it folded down to stow away seamlessly under a bed. Kids can't fold it themselves, so it's safe to leave them to play with it. It is made of Eco-friendly Rubberwood, like so many of the Plan Toys products. Latex is harvested from Rubberwood, and when the tree's latex producing cycle is over it is discarded. It's great that Plan Toys can use this material to make toys instead!

Almost four year old Baby E loves riding Tori, she plays with it at least once a day and usually more often than that. Her little brother Baby T is only one year old, so he is too small to rise it alone or to really enjoy it, but it looks like in about a year it will be 'his' toy. The Tori rocking horse is recommended for ages 2 and up. 


We love the simple design that looks equally great in the living room and it does in the kids room. This classic piece has a non-toxic finish that is safe for kids, doesn't emit any toxic smells, and is splinter-free. This is a very durable toy that I suspect will last for generations. It can be easily and compactly stored when the kids outgrow it and before you know it, grandchildren will be having fun with it. The Tori rocking horse retails for $99.99 (also currently available on Amazon for $89.95 with free shipping).


Tori isn't the only rocking horse that Plan Toys makes. They also have the Palomino, Lusitano, Arabian, and Neo-Classic. Their selection of wooden toys is pretty incredible and the modern designs are very attractive to both parents and kids. You'll find everything from dollhouses and cars, to rattles and educational toys for preschoolers.

Come back tomorrow, Monday, to enter to win a Plan Toys Tori Rocking Horse!

  19. Wooden toys are always good quality toys, especially as simple as just wood not painted. I like the folding part, easy storage. This type of clasic toys always will be used by young and older children.

  26. What a beautiful toy. I love wooden toys and rocking horses. While we do currently have room for a full sized rocking horse, we don't own the house we live in so you never know when we may have to downsize. The foldability may come in handy down the road.

  39. I think this is so adorable, and I like it even more that I learned it folds down. We don't have a whole lot of room where we are now, so it's great to hide things under beds. Esp. toys!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love that this thing folds down. I can use it when the little ones come to visit and then tuck it away under the bed in the spare bedroom when it's not in use. Fantastic design choice. Your kids are adorable but I got a bit nervous when I saw where the little girls hands were. Seems like she could get them smashed under the horse rocker. Ouch!

  42. This is one of the best toys for kids I have seen. Not only is it fold able, it is one of the most loved rides ever.

    ReplyDelete
  43. The rocking horse looks like a high quality products that would last for a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I also love the simple but genius design! We live in a small home and have a 1 yr old grand daughter living with us (and her mommmy too...they share a room). Space is golden here so this would be a toy that would not take up a lot of room, be carried from room to room or travel. I am such a lover of wooden toys and this company has so many neat ones. I adore the dollhouse items and the play food, but the big kitchen items are so amazing and colorful. I dabbled in making some simple furniture and love the idea of making kid's toys, but don't have the tools. I'd recommend this company to parents out there or for people to gift...sight unseen. These are the toys you hand down for generations and they dont need batteries to keep em' going. Imagination...is FREE and yet worth so much!

    Thanks for the great review. I'd never hear about companies like this if not for bloggers who do their homework and show actual product use. Great job!

  45. Love that this little rocking horse folds up! What a wonderful keepsake toy to pass down too! (And adorable little models that you have here with the rocking horse :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!

  46. The foldable feature is great for small spaces. Thanks for the review!

  47. The fact that it folds flat is the best. I have a huge, honkin' vintage spring horse in my daughter's "cowgirl" bedroom right now, and it takes up an unbelievable amount of floor space.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Looks like a very sturdy toy. I appreciate that it is made of beautiful wood and not colored pink or blue or splashed with licensed characters. Much easier to develop my kids' imagination and sharing amongst siblings.

  49. i love the foldable furniture and the basic color of the furniture and how it can go with anything!

  50. I love that it is foldable, but I wonder what the age limit is for the toy?

  53. I love so many things about this rocking horse! Most of all, i love that it folds up and I love the natural look of it. It won't look out of place anywhere in our house. My two year old daughter loves ponies, and i know she would be super excited to get this one:)

  57. Ever since having our first baby in a tiny one-bedroom apartment, I have an obsession with things that fold down for storage. I also love the natural wood look. So many beautiful wooden toys look gaudy after they're painted!
