Knee-Rider for Toddler Pony Knee Rides

Knee-Rider by Danoco is a plush pony you attach to your knee with two Velcro straps to give your kid a pony ride. Touch the spot on the pony’s head to hear pony sounds. The pony also doubles as a pillow or plush pal.

Two marketing photos of the Knee-Rider product. One close-up and one overview of a child sitting on the Knee-Rider on a mother's knee.

How does Knee-Rider differ from the product I highlighted here last year… Po-Knee,  a plush pony you attach to your leg with Velcro straps? I’m glad you asked.

First, Knee-Rider is a pony. Po-Knee is offered as a pony, horse, bull or donkey. See the difference now?

Second, Knee-Rider is sold—as of this writing—$10 cheaper.

Third, Po-Knee was lavished with blogger attention after it was featured on Oprah Winfrey’s Million Dollar Idea Challenge in 2003. Meanwhile, Knee-Rider claims to have been invented in 1974 and patented in 1988 and the company credits the idea as dating back to the 1950s. This proves one of my core beliefs: bloggers love Oprah.

So, allow me set the record straight. There is more than one plush equine bouncing bust on the market.
