Vintage Original "The Wonder Horse" Rocking Horse. Red painted Wood Horse Body with Black Stencil details and Spring Platform. Does show wear on paint finish due to use and age as can be seen in photographs. But, still in very stable working condition.
First constructed in 1939 by Arkansas toy maker William Baltz, and manufactured and produced through the 1960s as a popular child's toy called "The Wonder Horse". For Christmas, 1939, William Baltz constructed the toy horse and attached it to a wooden frame with heavy springs as a gift for his son, Billy. The children enjoyed the toy so much that Mr. Baltz obtained a patient for the toy horse. Soon the toy was being manufactured and became a favorite of children all over the world. William name it the “Wonder Horse” because it was invented in Arkansas whose state nickname at that time was the “Wonder State”.
