Looking for a way to stay sane till the frost melts? Gotta keep those active kids entertained indoors? I can’t praise the Rody horse from Maukilo enough. Maukilo has a site chock full of toy goodness, but the Rody holds a special place in my heart. It’s the perfect solution for active indoor play on all those chilly, snowy, rainy days when your kids have energy to burn.

Rody horses have been in my house for over a decade. Our original red Rody horse is still going strong after hopping many a mile around our neighborhood and around our living room. But I hopped (pardon the pun) on the chance to review a new yellow Rody Horse. Our one problem with the original horse is its popularity. We’ve had fights break out over the thing. At one point I purchased a cheap Rody imitation to try and deal with this. It promptly popped. Nothing but the real thing for us from now on! It’s no coincidence that the motto on the Maukilo site is “Buy Once. Play Forever”. That about sums up what I love most about the quality european toys sold at this site.
Over the years I’ve recommended Rody countless times to friends and family. Some of the questions I’ve heard are :
Q: How old does a kid have to be to enjoy Rody?
A: The packaging states 3 yrs, however my children enjoyed this toy with supervision from a younger age. My youngest child was able to sit and bounce on Rody from a yr old, though he needed help getting on and off. By 18 months he was bouncing around the house without anyone holding on.
Q: Don’t your kids get sick of Rody?
A: No. Not at all, even after ten yrs my 13 yr old tries to get on one.
Here’s a little video I made of my sons bouncing around on Rody. Note that the red one has been in our house for many years. It never gets old!
