Carousel Horses made from child's spring horse toy

petuniabud4September 13, 2008

I read some messages where people were making carousel horses from children's old spring or rocking horse toys. If you are one of these people, I would love to hear from you, because I am looking for 4 springs to put on a horse toy I have, but the springs are missing. I don't think that the carousel horses need the springs from the horses used, so I was hoping to purchase or pay for the shipping of these 4 springs! I bought the spring horse for my daughter when she was 2 and now she has a daughter who is two and I would love for her to be able to use this "rocking" spring horse! Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi petunia bud.
I googled spring horse parts, and got a thread in which someone said she got new springs at home depot! Maybe there is some big spring used in construction that works! Don't know if she had the same horse as you...

There were lots of links to follow, suggest you try it.
Good luck.

Petuniabud, I am one of those people making carousel horses and I may have some springs for you. Do you know if you need a size on these? I would be happy to send them to you for shipping fees. You may e-mail me at if you wish. Nancy
