“Must go for parents and young at heart”

Rocking Horse Toy Shop
Ranked #27 of 390 Shopping in Prague
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Since 1999, this tiny boutique in the upper castle area has offered a large, hand-picked assortment of genuine Czech and European toys and gifts, including wooden toys, wind-up toys, art supplies, model cars, puppets and marionettes. It`s a little hard to find, tucked under an arcade near the Loreto Square, so look for the wooden rocking horse above the door. Owner Ivan Karhan will be happy to help you select the perfect memento or gift for a loved one. English spoken.

“Take time to be enchanted.”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

Whatever time of year you are in Prague take time to visit the Rocking Horse Toy Shop. You will be able to find memorable souvenirs for complete your Christmas shopping. The wooden toys I have found here are cherished by friends and family.

“Wonderful Store”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

One of the joys of travelling is to find stuff you like, but can't get at home. This shop is full of such items - locally made, traditional toys that are distinctively Czech (ok, some are made in Germany) and that make great gifts and souvenirs. We came across it while exploring the castle area of Prague last year, it was charming!

“Rocking Horse Rocks!”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

A tiny shop jam-packed with tons of wonderful, engaging toys; many hand-made. Very few mass-market things. Ivan and his staff are warm, helpful, knowledgeable; Ask about Krtek the Czech mole.
Located in a pleasant walking area, near beautiful baroque churches.

“Unique Gifts from Prague”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

I have lived in Prague for many years and Rocking Horse is one of the few shops where I feel like I can buy original items for friends and children back in America. The toys at Rocking Horse are unique, well crafted, and affordable. I particularly love the hanging mobiles, in the form of dragons, and they are always a hit with babies. Situated in lovely Loretta, behind the Prague Castle, a walk to the toy store is a nice experience in and of itself.
