It's finally in his room now instead of hidden in a closet (almost a year after we've had it). I tried it out, but he would stand on it, or sit backwards in it. Sitting backwards was cute, but he would aggressively rock and ended up rocking too far and fell over - with his legs stuck in the back. He thought it was funny, but I knew that was only the beginning and he would end up hurt. So now, he actually sits in it right and doesn't rock crazy.
