About

Creative Playthings rocker made of a light, warm birch plywood. Designed in 1964 by Gloria Caranica, this rocking horse predecessor is a perfect synthesis of material, design, and function. The curved top and bottom meet on the sides to create a mirrored angular form. The hollowed middle highlights the perpendicular rod with a spherical red ball at the end. Dimensions: 11.75” width x 25.75” depth x 18.5” height Excellent vintage condition; professionally cleaned.
