Have you ever wondered how you can better teach your young child about the benefits of sustainable living and environmentally friendly processes? They are likely to either fall asleep or start a tantrum if you begin to lecture them about green technologies, as would many adults. However, another way to introduce eco-friendly awareness is through play and this is precisely what designer Günther Schunn’s ‘Calidu Rocking Horse’ does in a remarkable way.

The rocking horse comes equipped with organic light emitting diode (OLED) lights which flash when the rocking motion reaches a certain point. This teaches the child about the possibilities associated with renewable energy and sustainable design. The horse itself is made from a metal framework and solid oak wood which is further enhanced with a herbal oil finish. A fun leather fringe tail completes the look.
