What is the recommended child age for your Riding Rockers?
We have found that the youngest is approximately 2 years old. As with any toy of this type, it is recommended that adult supervision be present when riding. The upper end on age? We have seen "big kids" ranging in age from teens to 60's, weighing upwards of 250 pounds get on and ride.

How safe are your Riding Rockers for my child?
Very safe! The Riding Rocker's creator, Fred Stave, has spent most of his professional career concerned with product design and development of consumer products and as such is very sensitive to safety issues. A component of "Precision Engineered Craftsmanship" is taking safety into account and doing everything possible to make the Riding Rockers safe. For example, the rocker ends are formed so that the rocker can not be rocked too high and tip end over end. Another example is that all joints have at least two fastening mentods holding them together such as glue and screw or peg and glue. In fact, mortise and tenon combined with glue and screw joining is utilized on the rocker cross pieces.

What is "Handcrafted Heirloom Quality"?
"Handcrafted Heirloom Quality" is an often overused and misused term. The dictionary definition of heirloom is "possession kept in family". To Goose Creek Enterprises, that means that, with reasonable care, the Riding Rocker will continue to perform as new and continue to look attractive, and in the case of some natural woods, will improve its look with age. During the time interval the child outgrows the Riding Rocker and the next generation occurs, the Riding Rocker is intended to look so good that it could be used as a room accent piece.

What is "Precision Engineered Craftsmanship"?
Goose Creek Enterprises' definition of "Precision Engineered Craftsmanship" is combining the old world skill of the wood trades with the modern design engineering skills and the utilization of modern materials. For example, creator Fred Stave, used engineering calculations and strength of materials information to design and confirm the strength of the many joints in the Rocking Riders. This is when he concluded that many of the critical joints, especially where safety was involved, need more than one joining technique to be utilized. Another example is that modern glues and surface finishes are more resilient and tougher, while providing a longer life than the comparable glues and finishes utilized in the past. This is exemplified in the five coats of final finish on the natural wood Riding Rockers. It is a very specific combination of traditional tung oil in a modern tough surface polyurethane mixture. The final finish on the painted versions however, utilize a water-based, very clear and transparent mixture, so that the colors intended by the artist will shine through.
