Wooden Ride-On Rocker Toy Modeled After a Star Wars Starfighter

An Auckland-based man named Steve, of Steves Wooden Toys, paid homage to the Star Wars films by building a large ride-on rocker toy modeled after the X-wing starfighter. The exquisitely-crafted project is made from solid wood and features pine, New Zealand-native macrocarpa, and rimu in its construction. It's a two-seater vehicle that even includes a small wooden R2-D2 to sit in the back.

Steve's sci-fi rocker is approximately 45 inches long and 47 inches wide with a seating area of about 11 inches wide. It's the perfect size for any young Star Wars fan. Think of all the fun, imaginary adventures that its pilot and R2-D2 can have when they're not accelerating towards the Death Star!
