Called Rocky, the toy is moulded from plastic in one colour with a rope slotted through the mouth as reigns.
Watch our recent interview with Marc Newson on Dezeen Screen.
Here's a tiny bit of text from Magis:
The second of Marc Newson’s designs for Children, Rocky is a modern take on a traditional object, a pop version taking its character loosely from medieval jousting horses.
The parallelogram motion mimics the movement of a traditional rocking horse. It is made from rotationally moulded polyethylene chosen for both its durability and recyclability.
