One upon a time there was a mythical creature that captured the hearts of everyone it encountered – the unicorn. Now this magical animal is more popular than ever with children, and Steiff, the renowned German manufacturer of children’s toys, have produced a beautiful, if slightly less rare, example.
As if by enchantment, Steiff have turned the idea of a small rocking horse into a unicorn. But abandon ethereal visions, this unicorn is practical. Suitably robust for an enthusiastic toddler, the body is firmly stuffed to encourage a comfortable seat. Entirely covered with the softest, plush fur, the unicorn has subtly rose tinted lower legs and nose. Its velvet hooves are attached to sturdy, polished wooden rockers that give a smooth ride.
In addition, the unicorn has the most winning expression, melting eyes and wonderfully soft nose and ears (also with the famous Steiff button); even the all-important horn is stuffed velvet. The fluffy mane and tail are also lightly padded, so that they, like the unicorn, will hold their fairy tale shape over time.
