This Chinese New Year celebrates the year of the horse. If your baby is born from January 31st 2014 their Chinese Zodiac sign will be the horse. According to Chinese beliefs, horse babies are energetic, smart and very talkative. Their kind natured, cheerful personality and witty sense of humour attracts many friends and places them in the spotlight and centre of attention.
In particular this Chinese New Year is the year of the wooden horse. The qualities of the wooden horse are that it is strong and stable. Chinese lore considers that these qualities equip the horse babies with stronger decision making abilities which drive their success both professionally and personally.
You can celebrate your child’s Chinese Zodiac sign with Mocka’s Rocking Horse. Available in white or red these wonderful rocking horses make a perfect addition to your baby’s nursery, kid’s bedroom or playroom. Although white is classic and chic, the colour red is a favourite for the Chinese New Year as it is a symbolic colour of happiness. Red is considered by the Chinese a colour that scares away evil spirits and brings in good fortune. Mocka’s red rocking horse is a wonderful and symbolic gift to give for an expecting mum this Chinese year.
