Daddle: a Saddle for Horseyback Rides

First there was the Daddy-O Rodeo T-shirt for giving horseyback rides.

Then there was Po-Knee, the plush horse for giving bouncing leg rides.

Now there is Daddle, the saddle which you strap on to become the horse and give daddyback rides. Knee pads are sold separately. You’ll need them.

So — Happy Father’s Day!  Spare your back, knees and knuckles. Do what I did. Buy your kid a toddler-sized rocking chair and then sing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” with your arms pulling weightless invisible oars. It’s an activity you can do at the dinner table, in the car and most anywhere.

    I can imagine this would be great if your dad was actually a HORSE.

    Seriously, how often do you give a horseback ride to your kid? My guess is about 5 times EVER. That makes it tough to justify spending $56!
