I have had repeated requests for my Rocking Sheep in the past few months and have decided to do a limited run of 14 sheep that will be ready to ship in time for Christmas 2013.
So order early to avoid disappointment!
This Rocking Sheep wasn't made on a production line in a factory. It was hand made by me, the designer, in my little home workshop on the Westside of Los Angeles, where I strive to create the best possible work I can. But you'll know that as soon as you see it.
My Rocking Sheep is inspired by a Danish designer named Povl Kjer. This is my take on his design.
Each prototype and design revision was fastidiously test ridden by my 18-month old daughter, Rosie. Believe me, if she wasn't happy with it, I wasn't happy with it.
I've created these Rocking Sheep using Baltic birch plywood, some reclaimed wood from around my shop, and of course, real sheepskin. It's finished with a low V.O.C. water-based polyurethane.
Age Range: 18 months to around 3 years
overall length 26"
width (from ear to ear) 10"
overall height 18"
seat height 14"
I've worked really hard to keep the shipping costs down, currently the best deal is FedEx Ground (4-5 days) but if you have a better idea, please let me know. Of course if you live in Los Angeles you're welcome to swing by and pick one up.
IF YOU DON'T SEE YOUR COUNTRY LISTED BELOW, PLEASE CONVO ME FOR A SHIPPING QUOTE **BEFORE** PLACING YOUR ORDER
So anyway, thank you for supporting an independent craftsman and designer.
However, I'll totally understand if you'd rather go to Toys R Us and buy something similar that's made of plastic for $40. That's a great price. you should probably do it ; )
