    Seems like yesterday...

    Seems like only yesterday that we dropped off this motorcycle rocker for my 1 year old nephew.

    Yesterday they came to visit and after being "well used" by him and his two brothers, they wanted my grandson to have it. This is my nephew now, on the rocker with my grandson.

    That will be passed around for generations. I have the rocking horse my dad built me when I was one (70 years ago). My kids road it also, my brother's kids. It has spent a couple years at every grandchild's home, all my wife's nieces and nephews and many of there children. It is currently grazing at my three year old grandson's house.

    As someone around here likes to say, "when in doubt, Build it stout!" It looks great and it's so cool that it's going to get passed around.

    I can see that working as a tool to get a toddler to nod off to sleep or at least prepare for sleep gramps.

    I'm thinking it needs LED eyes and an Arduino-controlled rocking servo.
