The Toy Factory

Gumeracha, Australia

A Giant Rocking Horse in Adelaide, Australia. 


Just north of Adelaide, Australia, the Toy Factory showcases the world’s largest rocking horse, at 18 meters high.

Santa’s workshop down under, the Toy Factory manufactures wood toys of all shapes and sizes: doll houses, jigsaw puzzles, trucks, and musical instruments. The factory is open for tours, and best of all, they let you climb the rocking horse.

No one goes home empty-handed for their efforts; the Toy Factory will present a certificate of achievement to all who complete the climb to the top of the horse.
