What do you get for the person who has everything, including a Pony? A Tipi of course. A Tipi is basically the same thing as a Pony, but it's not a Pony. Which is to say, like the Pony it's meant to be a seat, but not necessarily a chair. And like the Pony it's meant to be fun. But it doesn't look like a Pony. It looks like, well, a Tipi.
is. it. better?
Is the Tipi better than the Pony? Only if you think so. If you don't think so, than it isn't. Personally I like them about equally. The Pony was designed about 30 years ago, while the Tipi was designed just a few years ago.
is. it. cheaper?
The Tipi is slightly cheaper than the Pony as far as I can tell. Online it seems to run a few hundred dollars less than the Pony, which costs around $2,000. Out of my reach, but maybe that will tip the scales for some of you who almost had enough money for a Pony, but not quite.
