Rescue a Wicksteed Playgrounds Horse!


Rescue a Wicksteed Playgrounds Horse!

Does your play area have one of our iconic traditional Rocking Horses installed which needs a bit of TLC…? If so, we want to give your community the chance to win its makeover to restore it to its former glory.

As part of our centenary celebrations, we want you to find one of our Wicksteed horses that needs re-painting and restoring to full working order. The Wicksteed Rocking horse has always been a perennial playground favourite and we began making these iconic pieces of equipment back in the late 1940’s and still make them today! One of our original horses is, in fact, on display at the V&A Museum of Childhood – part of our history but also the future of children’s play.

Wicksteed has the facilities to restore the older surviving horses with an updated mechanism and a durable paint finish in a variety of bespoke colour schemes.

So take a quick snap and submit your entry for a chance to give a much loved Wicksteed horse a new lease of life!
