Dart isn't your typical rocking horse. For one thing, he's only about 5" tall (which makes him difficult to ride for humans like us). But that's not really what makes this pony special--it's his personality. Sure, he's fast like his name suggests, and he's ridiculously adorable, but more than that, he's looking for a best friend. This horse will be as loyal as the day is long. He'll keep your secrets, he'll store your tiny treasures, and he'll love you til the end of time.

Spend the days gently rocking him or stroking his cut leather mane. Either way, this is one horse you simply can't live without.

(Reassembled using a vintage Dart nail box, tea strainer head, drawer handles rockers, and leather roller skate straps for mane and tail. 5 1/4" long, 2 1/4" wide, and 5" tall) 

Custom Order: The Walker

I have a faithful customer that's asked me to make a special bot for her. She sent me the "foot powder" canister, a pedometer, and the feet, asking me to put them together. She wants a special bot for her daughter and son-in-law who are avid walkers.

I added arms that are already in the walking "swing" position (pieces of a leftover erector set). Then I gave him gold cog eyes as the base with a black washer on one side (more manly) and a black star washer on the other (more feminine) to represent both of them.

I'm thinking about adding a "sweatband" that might add to the exercise element.

It's always interesting to make something for a specific person. What would your dream bot be?
