Take a gander at this Groovy Whale Rider from One Happy Robot, for instance. All kids love rockers, but most of them are pieces of junk (or are too flimsy to support a child; I recall a zebra rocker my kid received for her first birthday that was a study in instability). This rocker is sturdy and so original; it's the first rocking whale I've ever seen, and the colors are bright and fun. One Happy Robot offers lots of furniture and decor options (the owner will even customize items), and the prices are very reasonable. What wonderful original baby gifts these pieces would make.
