This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in January of 2017. You can't expect your children to watch you kick back in a recliner and not want one for themselves. Fortunately, we have you covered with kids' versions that are so comfortable there might not be any more arguments at nap time. Make sure to adhere to all age recommendations, however, as even something as simple as a chair can easily become a hazard if it has moving parts. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best kids' recliner on Amazon.

BizChair Personalized These chairs can help your kids learn a sense of ownership and responsibility, as each can be embroidered to say their name (or, really, whatever you want it to say) in 24 different fonts on up to two lines of text. It's a great way to make sure that siblings know clearly whose chair belongs to whom. bizchair.com

Editor's Notes

August 08, 2019:

A close examination of the models included on our previous list revealed that there were some cleverly concealed redundancies. If you look at the Kidz World models at numbers one and six respectively on our current list, you'll see what is essentially the same chair, but in different finishes (one intended for male children, the other for females, if you subscribe to the whole gender binary thing). That should be the absolute limit to which we allow for repetition among models, but there was another chair from Kidz Wolrd on our old list that was identical to our number one option, but that had an airplane pattern instead of trucks. Now, I'm all for introducing children to the wonders of aviation from an early age, but this was another design geared toward boys, and we already have that.

That's also why the Flash Furniture Contemporary was stricken from our current list; it's the same thing as the GG Deluxe, just with a different finish. Fortunately, that company offered a suitable replacement in its connected duo of theater recliners. Building out a home theater is expensive, and kids are liable to get all manner of unidentifiable but undeniably sticky things on expensive leather recliners, so giving them dedicated seats for movie night is a smart choice. We also found a new model from Costzon, which boasts a bit of modern flair and reclines very smoothly.
