The blinking. The beeping. The tinny nursery rhymes that emanate from so many children’s toys these days—sometimes it’s nice to return to the classics. If you’re looking for a quality toy that will last long enough to be passed on to siblings—and is cute enough to be left out when company comes over—look no further than the Hape Rock-a-Long Puppy Ride-On. With retro styling and sturdy wooden construction, this rocking-horse-style toy has a cute dog face and is durable enough to share with future generations. There are no bells or whistles here: Kids can stand or have a seat, hold on and rock, all the while developing their gross motor skills, problem solving and imagination. While the Hape Rock-A-Long Puppy Ride-On is meant to be suitable for babies 10 months and up, slightly older little ones who could pull themselves up or get on the rocker themselves showed more interest in playing with it. Parents will appreciate the value and excellent construction, while kids will enjoy the fun and independence this cute little pup offers.

This is a fun toy for both my kids, ages one and three. From the moment I took it out of the box, they loved the idea of rocking on a puppy. It’s sturdy and durable, and a toy I think they’ll enjoy for a long time.” —Carmela, mom of two
