Wooden Rocking Horses – A Brief History

Rocking horses, in some form or style, are believed to have been around since ancient Greece and Egypt. The wooden rocking horse, as a toy for children, can be traced reliably back to the 17th Century in England. (In case you're curious, we made the distinction in the previous sentence of "as a toy for children" because knights of the Middle Ages were know to practice on large, wheeled wooden horses.)

In America, the wooden rocking horse didn’t become a well known child’s toy until the 18th century. Its popularity was greatly increased in 1877 when P.J. Marqua of Cincinatti, OH invented a safer, more secure base for rocking horses. Before this time, rocking horses had been made to "ride" on bow rockers. Mr. Marqua designed a new type of base that allowed for a fixed frame on which the toy swung on swing irons. This new type of stand not only required less space for the toy – traditional bow rockers scooted forward as the child rocked and played – it was more stable and safer to use. Mr. Marqua was granted a patent for his design in 1878.

What That Stuff Means...
