Rocking Horse
Britain’s tradition of rocking horse manufacture, which has its roots in knights practising their jousts, could be crippled by new European safety regulations (CENLEC). According to the new standards, “activity toys” cannot have a height from saddle to floor of more than 60cm, less than two feet. That effectively rules out all but the smallest rocking horses, say craftsmen in the cottage industry’s 60 or so firms who comprise the £35m per annum industry. (EU Weekly News – C Mobray 30/11/03 )
