    My first thought is that if your child ever misbehaves, you can decapitate her bike and leave the head in her bed.

    $220 seems like a lot for a kid’s bike, but I bet you could get the parts for a DIY version from a used bike shop and the local rendering plant.

      The kids just broke their animatronic horse head broomstick toy, this is a great idea for a DIY make both toys cooler project. I will have to add a friction dynamo, rectifier, and tada! no more wasted batteries too.

    Adding a horn would make it a unicorn.

    I’ve seen some of the local bike punks do a homemade version of this using an oversized stuffed animal with the body gutted. Then just make some holes behind the head for the handlebars and stretch the empty skin back over the seat. Zip-tie or whatever fastening method you prefer, add matching handgrips, etc. The effect is pretty cool. I had to use a crowbar to pry my five year old off a giant panda bike.

    Too bad the frame doesn’t look like a skeleton.

    A company called Monark made a gnarlier version in the late 1940s because it came with holsters and guns.

    Not recomended for those living in Boston or Orlando as authorities will probably mistake it for a terrorist device and blow it up. Just sayin’ from past history.

    excellent! i invented this when i was around 9 years old, as i’m sure did hundreds of other 9 year olds. only mine had stirrups for pedals.

    I don’t think a horse would be able to ride it at all.

    The word ‘Unusual’ seems superfluous.

    I could make one for less, with a REAL horse’s head.

    It looks vaguely perverted. Like an S&M toy, or something.
