For most newcomers to the franchise, you choose to become a Star Trek fan when you're an adult and can make that decision for yourself, kind of like choosing political parties or your religion. However, some of us, myself included, were taught all about the adventures of the U.S.S. Enterprise rew since infancy. I wasn't born to Trekker parents, but my aunt/Godmother was an OG Star Trek fan, who as a teenager in the sixties wrote things like "I Love Spock!" in her diary, surrounded by little floaty heart doodles. She made darn sure I knew who Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and the rest were around the same time I started to watch Sesame Street.
If it had been available back then, my aunt would have totally bought me this amazing custom wooden rocking horse based on the USS Enterprise so little baby me could have rocked back and forth while pretending to travel the galaxy. I may have missed out, but if you're a parent raising your child the right way (i.e. introducing them to all things Star Trek), you can now buy this unique creation for yourself which we've learned, thanks to the folks over at the Laughing Squid, is now available to purchase from GandGRockers Etsy store. It'll only set you back about $200, which is a steal for a customized piece like this.
Here is the official description of this Enterprise rocking horse, from GandGRockers' official Etsy site:
