eh, it wasn't my son's favorite - too small for my 3 year old
I got Rody for my 3 year old son. He is into cars, toy guns, and climbing on everything. I figured as an active boy he would enjoy this bouncer. This was just a miss, he has rarely jumped on it - and when he gets on it is more to jump off and fall like he is a stuntman. I blew this up fully, probably even over inflated as Rody is looking quite chubby, but it is just too short for my 3 year old son. I think he may have enjoyed a bouncer if his legs barely touched the ground when sitting on it. If you 2-3 year old is on the shorter side I think this could be an enjoyable toy. It can definitely take at least 50 lbs of weight jumping as my 7 year old every once in a while tries jumping on him too.
As far as quality it is a thick rubber and the seams look to be well connected so I don't foresee this breaking or popping anytime soon. I remember the jump toys, like the ball with the handle, being so much fun when I was a kid that I assumed my son would love this. This will most likely hit the donation pile in the summer, but not for lack of quality just lack of interest - it could very well be different for your child :-)

The best toy I ever bought! This little horse will be a friend for life. My little one bounces, bounces, bounces. She has had it for a year and although she is getting a bit big for it, she refuses to let him go. Highly recommend. Other reviews are correct, at first the little guys will roll of the back. No worries, they learn really fast how to balance. Just be sure to let them try it for the first few times in a safe place.

After a month of use the body of the horse ...
After a month of use the body of the horse became deformed and is now to wide for a child to sit on.

So much fun for kids of all ages!
Oh my goodness! There isn't a toy in my house that gets used more than Rody. Rody is loved by my toddler and my kindergartener! I've often thought of getting a second Rody, but we just don't have room in our house. Rody isn't very easy to store, so he takes up some space in our crowded living room. But, our kids get such a kick out of bouncing on him and riding him around the downstairs. He's very durable and can survive some "high jumps" from both of my kids (and my husband). Rody doesn't sit too high off the ground, so when my two year old falls off of him I don't worry too much. Overall, it's a great toy and my kids love it. We've had it for about 3 years now without any troubles. But if he did pop or break, I would replace him without hesitation.

Great for my 18 month old!
I got this for my 18 month old for Christmas and she looooooves it! She can only bounce up and down on it for now (my 3 year old can bounce the bigger one around the room ) My daughter is on the smaller size for her age and gets on and off the horse without issue. She also loves to give it a kiss. Super cute toy which also helps burn some extra winter energy . This horse is to small for my 3.5 year old so we bought him the larger version of this horse

Bouncy horses are so much fun!
We bought this for a friend's son for a Christmas gift. It was a hit! It was very easy to blow up using a bike pump. You can blow it up less to make it usable for smaller kids or blow it up large for bigger kids. It bounces really great. It's super low to the ground, making it safe for kids to use on any type of flooring so if they fall off they won't get hurt. This has become our go to present for kids!

Great for Building Core Strength
My 9 month old loves sitting on Rody and bouncing. It helps her build her core strength. My 2.5 year old also loves bouncing on it, but she is getting too tall for it now at 36 inches tall.

I would recommend this little pony to everyone
This product seemed incredibly expensive when we purchased it but for the last year it has been a lifesaver to allow young children to expand extra energy to Tucker them out when they need a break from going full speed or getting them settled before bed! I would recommend this little pony to everyone!
My only caution is that if the users are little and the pony is pumped up to capacity they can fly off if they are not hanging onto the ears!

Great fun for all ages.
I bought this for a 2 year old. He loves it and so does the 3 year old and the 6 year old. The 2 year old is still not great at keeping his balance, but he keeps trying. It was great fun for the whole family just watching the kids bouncing around the house on it. We haven't had it for a long time, so I can't speak about the durability or the fun factor down the road. But they sure love it now!

Great toy! Now own two!!!!
I bought for my grandson that has Apraxia ( which includes coordination and balance issues) and had read that this was a recommended theraputic toy. Well, I had to buy a second one for my other grandson because they BOTH LOVE this pony!! As rough as the boys have been with it, and in spite on adult uncles riding the larger pony- never had any issues with popping... This is a QUALITY toy that will last a LONG time.! I also bought the rocking base for the younger one. Yes, pricey, but worth every cent.
