However, what should have been "a no more than 10 minute simple assembly of screwing the horse's legs to the rocker base" was a Pain!!!! The sockets seemed to be angled, which made for much difficulty trying to line up the screws for proper threading!
It gave both My Husband and me fits!!! And then - why is there a need for putting the world's smallest screw on the Battery pack?
We had to find a mini screwdriver from an eyeglass repair case in order to be able to install the two AA batteries for the horse's sound! Ugh! Thank goodnes! - the grandson liked it.....all of 15 minutes! LOL
I've purchased other Melissa & Doug products and have found them to be beautifully designed and well-made. This rocking horse is no exception.
Some reviews mentioned a smell and poor quality materials, but I didn't notice any weird smell. It resembles a high quality stuffed animal to me. The saddle material is also nicer than I expected and has a thin, leather-like feel. I had gotten the impression from another review that it's more like plastic. And, it's pretty sturdy. I weigh about 130 pounds, and I've rocked on it for several minutes with my feet on the platform and sat on it with my 22+ pound son in my lap with my feet on the floor.
I received the same color horse as pictured in the listing with a boy riding, except the saddle and bridle look a bit darker. I'm actually very happy with that because it goes better with my home decor; we have sand-colored tile floors and the lighter color base really makes it kinda blend with the floor.
The galloping and whinnying noises are OK. One of the other rocking horses I was considering played a really annoying song, and that was a dealbreaker.
The assembly process was harder than you might imagine for something that only requires four screws. At first I thought they sent the wrong base, because it has four slats, rather than the three pictured. But I think four is probably better since the boards are closer together. You really have to stretch the horse's legs to make it fit. I basically had to do some yoga-type poses with this thing. Then, it is very hard to get the screws lined up with the bolts in the legs -- especially on the last leg. I needed my husband's help with that one, and it took us several minutes to get it in place. Also, the instructions say to put the batteries in after it is secured to the base, and after doing it that way, I recommend reversing those steps. It's also not so easy to get into the battery compartment once it's on the base. But it's worth it once it's put together.
However, our horse has different coloring than what is pictured: the brown "leather" saddle and reins is more like a chocolate brown, and the horse has a white patch on the chest and nose. The picture needs to be updated or the seller needs to warn customers that colors may vary. More importantly, ours arrived in a less than satisfactory condition. After unwrapping the wooden rocker base from the plastic bag, I noticed it had black spots all over. At first, I thought maybe it was mold from being damp and wrapped up; thankfully, after wiping it with a damp rag, I realized it was just dirty...still disappointing it arrived that way.
Due to it being needed in two days, my husband sanded and wood filled the missing pieces. The toy was purchased and intended for a young toddler and the child would not have been able to use it without injury due to the condition it arrived in had my husband not repaired it. It did not look new, but usable. We think the toy is very cute, but were disappointed in the quality control.
