Beyonce & Jay-Z Bought Their Baby A Solid Gold Rocking Horse

Seriously.

Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s little bundle of joy, Blue Ivy, has just entered the world and already rumors about her outlandish lifestyle are spreading. The Post is claiming that Blue Ivy possesses something to the tune of $1.5 million in lavish gifts, including:

1. “[A] solid-gold, handmade horse from Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka that Jay-Z bought for $600,000.”

2. “[A] coach-like crib from PoshTots, for which her her parents paid nearly $20,000.”

3. “ [A] $15,000 highchair dripping with Swarovski crystals.”

In their defense, they’re wealthy and this is their first child. A lot of parents go overboard on the first one, right?

…Conversely, “solid gold rocking horse” may be the most tasteless phrase we’ve ever heard.

    Well, now I feel way less bad about wanting a $5000 one. (http://finerockinghorses.com . I wanted one when I was a kid, and I still kind of love them.)

      Thank you.

    My scientist boyfriend volunteered this: Solid gold is actually quite a soft metal, if you had a bar of it you could mark it with your fingernail. The way a child treats their toys it’d probably be bent, deformed and scuffed within a few weeks.

    And I thought a solid gold rocking horse couldn’t get any more ridiculous.

      I was wondering if that would even be a comfortable rocking horse, so you answered my question.

    Did they set up a shrine for the false idol — I mean — the golden rocking horse?
