and they don't make noise...but WOW some of the rocking horses walmart has listed on their website are amazing. Wooden ones with chairs all painted up to look like carosel horses or princess horses......but not in a tacky way, go figure.

Not HR but I go and buy the GKids the battery operated singing motion Xmas toys and give them to them at Thxg every yr. Then they have a whole long month of playing them to get them, and their parents!, in the Xmas spirit
The ultimate Grandma gift! This year I took them and they picked out the ones they wanted. It's becoming a memorable event now.
Some day I'm going to tell my grandkids that I am older than the internet and blow their minds.
Same gift suggestion for "loud and horse-centric": A milk jug filled with a few rocks and the lid duct taped on.
When the parents ask, explain the connection: This is a magic window when the tastes of a horse and human line up exactly. Being thoughtful, you didn't want to miss it. (You don't need to tell them that kid and colt have the same attention span and inability to appreciate anything more expensive you'd buy for them.)
