Gone are the days when children grew up playing in rocking horses. But, the new generation can now enjoy with the Star Wars-themed wooden X-wing rocker by New Zealand-based toy maker Steve Coupe from Steves Wooden Toys. Coupe has been making toys for 25 years and now he decided to make a special tribute to Star Wars, meanwhile helping to raise money for local children’s hospital.
The X-wing rocker is made out of solid wood and comes with a removable R2-D2 at the back, as co-pilot. This cool rocker would make your kid grow up virtually killing Death Stars, just like in the famous sci-fi flick. It is a perfect toy for the little ‘Luke’ and ‘Leia’ in your life.
