Jen Yates of Cake Wrecks and EPBOT has created the “AT-AT Rocker,” a fantastic custom-built rocking horse based on the AT-AT Walkers from Star Wars. It will be put in a silent auction for charity at Megacon 2014 in Orlando by The Florida Garrison of the 501st Legion. You can view more progress shots and photos of the final design at EPBOT.
We added a seat back and extra sturdy T-bar handle for safety, plus some extra-long bumpers on the bottom rails to prevent the rocker from rocking too far.
The rail bumpers might not be necessary for an older and/or more adventurous child, but our 4-year-old test subject Isaiah was afraid of rocking backward, so the stops helped him feel more secure. The bumpers are glued on with construction adhesive, so they’re quite strong, but in the future they can be popped off with a hammer.
