About Us

Woohoo! Welcome to The Rocking Horse’s online store!

The Rocking Horse is a locally-owned, independent toy store in the heart of Downtown Kingston. 

We are known for our selection of classic and retro toys, board games, wooden toys, fidget and sensory toys, stuffed animals, and unique novelty items! Our customers also have fun at the various events we throw throughout the year - our non-competitive children’s race, pedal car derby, Halloween party, March Break “Madness”, and more!

One of the best parts of our job is helping you find the perfect gift. If you’ve been in our store, you know how excited, energetic, and passionate our team is about toys. We want to dedicate that same level of customer care when you’re shopping online. Can't find what you're looking for? Our selection of toys, games and puzzles is getting bigger everyday, and that means sometimes it takes a little bit of time to get these items onto our “online store shelves,” so don’t hesitate to message us or call us; we’ll be happy to help. When you contact us, you are talking directly to the team that staffs our stores every day.

Our Philosophy

To play is not a mere pastime for children…

It allows them to create and express themselves! While playing, children explore, learn about themselves and discover the world around them. Toys are tools which allow them to develop their physical, social and intellectual skills. A well chosen toy stimulates the child and contributes to their development.
