MOST children love playing on rocking horses, but how many little boys and girls can claim ownership of a rocking sea-horse?

Thanks to the generosity of local woodworker Greg Ryan, Roches Family Hotel and 2012 Jacaranda Queen candidate Sharni Rouse, local parents have the opportunity to win this unique toy for their youngsters.

Described as a "world first", by Greg, the colourfully decorated Sammie the Sea-Horse is being offered as a prize in a raffle draw organised by Sharni as part of her Jacaranda Festival fundraising campaign.

"It's an unique piece. It's something different and as a rocker, it is safe and functional," said Greg.

"It is 1.4 metres high and there is only one moving part which swings on an axis. Sammie has been built with timber and foam rubber and the most challenging part was getting the right balance point."

Sammie is best-suited for children aged two to seven.

Raffle tickets cost $2 each or three for $5 and will be available at a trivia night in support of Sharni at Roches tonight. The event starts at 7pm. The winner will be drawn on October 19.
