|Rocking and playing|
She does not only love sitting in it and playing with her plastic horses, but she also loves rocking. And to be more precise, rocking in a serious way, as fast and far as possible, and preferably so that the top is left open. Knocking on wood - she has not fallen of her ride so far!
|From the 1940's|
We think the rocking chair dates back to 1940's due to how it looks like and based on Pekka's discussion with the seller. Of course we can't be certain, but it is clearly old and unique, we have not ran across a similar item in any of the live auctions or the internet sites. The wood work is beautiful, it has some very appealing shapes and details.
|Child proof (?) locks to lock up the top|
Urho and Sofi have a very interesting relationship at the moment. When we were for example taking these pictures, Urho had to know that by positioning himself close to Sofi in swing action, he is risking his well being a bit. Mysteriously, however, despite of the inevitable risk he often prefers being in the centre of all action. And equally miraculously, between him and Sofi, there has been no major incidents of any kind, which has a lot to do with Urho's calm and easy character. Instead, a couple of times we have even observed a form of interaction between those two which could be called "playing together".
