This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in March of 2019. Most parents know that a day at the beach with children can either be a lot of fun or a huge struggle, depending on which items you pack to keep little ones comfortable and entertained. These chairs provide youngsters with their own place to kick back and watch the waves, and are made with the size and rambunctiousness of kids in mind. Most don't cost an arm and a leg, either. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

July 19, 2019:

We know young children like a sense of independence when out with their parents, so we chose chairs that will give them that. For example, the SwimWays Kelsyus Outdoor Paw Patrol folds up into the perfect size for kids to carry it as a backpack, so they can participate in lugging gear from the car to the shore, and the Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Flex Octopus allows you to have a child's name embroidered onto it, which is great for territorial cuties.

Sun protection is also important during long days by the ocean, which is why we added the Redmon Camp Combo, which has an adorable umbrella kids can actually remove and use on its own. The Baby Delight Go With Me also has a shade-providing canopy, and is a great option for parents hoping to stop the pattern of buying new kids gear every few months, since it will grow with a cutie from about three months to toddlerhood. Other options that include their own canopy are the Summer Pop 'n Sit SE Big Kid and Summer Infant Pop N' Jump. Speaking of the Summer Infant Pop N' Jump, we realize that even the youngest members of the family can enjoy the beach, which is why we included it, as well as the Summer Infant Pop and Sit Portable Booster on the list.

Whichever model you choose, we recommend you always fold and unfold it yourself, or at the very last oversee your child as they do it to prevent the possibility of pinched fingers and ensure it is set up securely before they try and sit in it. We also recommend that you use a good sunscreen on your child, even if you get them a canopied model.

Special Honors

Kid Size Beach Lounger If you think your child will enjoy laying back while on the sand just like you do, then you may want to get them this lounger instead of a chair. While it does have its share of drawbacks, namely no canopy or cupholder and a high price tag, it sets up easily and has that classic navy-and-white-striped design so often seen at high-end resorts. potterybarnkids.com

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
