Remember those wooden rocking horses at your grandparents or at home when you were young? Sooo much fun!That joyful feeling was also something Annemarie de Man of Petit Puk had! So she went looking for vintage pieces to refurbish and sell them in her shop. She wasn’t the only one loving rocking horses so it seems. The selling went well. But finding good vintage ones wasn’t easy, so she started thinking of producing them herself. And she managed to find a way and we are big fans!
Beautiful handmade birch, if wanted painted in powder pink or powder green. Or in any other colour you wish for a little extra. Of course only childproof materials are being used. And what do you think of that funny and soft sheepskin to go along with it?
Awesome as a birth present because you can also personalize it with a nametag. A beautiful, personal and nostalgic present for someone special to give with a group of friends or colleagues. Rocking can be done as of 9 months (when the baby can sit well) till approximately 3 years.
Please take a look at the clothing section on the website as well, there is so many original pieces that you don’t find somewhere else.
NEW: WE WILL BE ADDING A LITTLE INTERVIEW WITH INSPIRING BUSINESS MOMS ONCE IN A WHILE AND TODAY WE START WITH ANNEMARIE:
- Where do you find all those original brands you sell on your site?
Really everywhere.. in stores, online. I try to avoid trade shows because once there the change that it already mainstream is big. I try to look for and find little gems. Of course we also sell some brands that other shops sell too, but only if it fits so well with our style. We only buy stuff we absolutely love ourselves. I.e. the whole monochrome style trend is not our thing. That’s how we keep the fire burning!
- How do you divide your time between work and family/kids? You the work/life balance ;-) (Annemarie has 3 little ones at home)
Oh my, that is like the REAL challenge.. But try to use every free minute, when one is napping, at night, right before the school run…
- Which famous child you would love to see rocking on one of your horses?
Eeeeh, difficult, ALL of course! Actually there are quite some ‘famous little ones’ that received my horse already. But I do have a royalty-crush so I would say Princess Charlotte the daughter of Prince William and Princess Kate or one of the Scandinavian royalty-babies?
