Rockin' Rider (Review & Giveaway)

Part of Balian's 2nd Birthday Bash

As Balian grows before my eyes, we are exploring something new together each and every day. B is such a sweet little guy, and is an absolute lover of animals. He loves to read stories about animals, and one of his favorite animals from his favorite book just happens to be a horse name Horace. We've sort of started playing horsey with Balian, but he's a sturdy little fella, and there's only so much my back can take. So, imagine my delight and surprise when we were offered the chance to review a Rockin' Rider Pony from Tek Nek Toys!

Tek Nek Toys

Based in Colleyville, TX, Teknek Toys opened their doors in 1997, and they have been creating innovative toys for boys and girls of all ages, ever since! The folks at Tek Nek Toys love bringing safe, sturdy, durable toys to children, and love to see the smiles on children's faces while playing with their favorite Tek Nek Toys!

As soon as I got word that we would be receiving Tek Nek's popular Rockin' Rider Brown Pony ride on toy, I was excited, because I knew Balian would fall in love with it.

Our Rockin' Rider Pony arrived in this big box!

I was home alone when the Rockin' Rider Brown Pony arrived, and though I was excited to see it, I thought- Uh-oh, what if I have to put this together? When I opened up the box, the Brown Pony was all in one piece (it comes this way- no assembly required), and I was overjoyed! This is a sizable ride-on toy, and it would be the perfect size for my little cowboy.

Here's the Rockin' Rider Brown Pony- sitting on our coffee table, to give you an idea of its size.

Front view of the Brown Pony- What a sweet face!

...and the other side of the Rockin' Rider Brown Pony.

I couldn't wait for Balian to get home, so I could introduce him to his new friend from Tek Nek Toys! Later that same day, Balian came home, and he saw his new pony waiting for him. He immediately ran up to the pony, and began to stroke his mane and pet him. He didn't waste any time swinging his leg over the pony to take him for a ride. Needless to say, he had a ton of fun! The next day, I showed Balian all of the fun things that the Rockin' Rider Brown Pony can do. His mouth moves when you press his ear. One ear makes the pony talk or plays sounds, and the other one makes the pony sing an adorable song about loving to have his coat brushed. Well, Balian got a big kick out of that and we spent most of the day playing cowboys and making the pony talk while Balian rode him.

Check out the fun we've been having with the Rockin' Rider Brown Pony...

Balian- meeting Brown Pony for the first time...

'Hi horsey!'

'Git along little doggy...'

'Giddy Up!'

'Let's sing, horsey!'

As you can see, this boy loves his horse. His Great Grandpa Jones would be so proud! Not a day has gone by since we received the Rockin' Rider Brown Pony that we haven't played with him. I've even caught Balian sneaking my vegetable scrub brush out of the kitchen to brush his horsey- and I just have to smile, because it's such a precious sight!
