This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Early reading is absolutely vital for children, as it expands their vocabularies, boosts their writing and comprehension skills and, most importantly, keeps them quiet for a few hours. These nooks give your kids a comfortable place to get lost in a story, and many also offer ample storage space for toys, books, and more. They're so cozy that your youngsters might never want to leave. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

July 20, 2019:

Since many people may not have quite as much space in their home as they would like, we thought it prudent to include some dual-purpose items like the KidKraft Little Dreamer Deluxe, KidKraft KKR14230, GoToTop Multi-Functional, and RiverRidge Home 02-163. These options combine a reading spot with a storage shelf, making the most efficient use out of whatever space you have. Since these models are designed for kids to climb onto though, it is very important that you anchor them securely to the wall to prevent tipping.

The USA Toyz Unicorn Tent and Tieno Castle are also good for homes without a lot of space, since they can quickly be set up when a child wants to use them, and then just as quickly packed down when your little one is finished. If you want to motivate your child to spend a little more time outside, consider the Outree Pod Swing and Sorbus Kids Nest, which can be set up outdoors and provide children with a relaxing swinging sensation, just like your favorite hammock does for you. Of course, these are also just as suitable for indoor use if you prefer.

December 13, 2018:

With a wide variety of styles to choose from, we focused on ones that were easy to customize to the child's liking, while also being interesting enough to captivate them. Other factors we considered included ease of setup, ability to accommodate multiple users, and durability.

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.

His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
