This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Whether it's for reading, hosting a tea party with friends and stuffed toys, or watching morning cartoons, kids need their own special chairs, as regular ones are too tall. These rocking models are cute enough to bring boring rooms to life and sturdy enough to handle little ones who never sit still. There's one to match every decor style and budget.

Kids enjoy rocking chairs just as much as adults, but it can be dangerous to let them climb all over yours. Instead, consider getting them their very own pint-sized model like the ones on this list. For those who prefer that classic aesthetic, we recommend the Wildkin Classic Rocker, Fantasy Fields Thematic, Gift Mark Colonial, Weavercraft Amish, Jack-Post KN-10R, and Jack-Post KN-10R. Each of these features either wood or MDF construction and would look darling next to your outdoor model.
If you are worried that something fully crafted out of hard wood and without cushions may be uncomfortable for your youngster, you will want to consider the Keet Roundy, Costzon Travel Life, and Costzon 11aa. These have a plusher design similar to what you might find in a home recliner. Both of the Costzon models come with a matching ottoman too, truly providing a relaxing experience.
The KidsKraft Scoop is an interesting option that would be a good choice for a camp or daycare facility that needs to provide seating for a lot of kids. It comes as a six-pack of chairs, all of which stack together for compact storage, and for a very reasonable price.
Though all of these models are purpose-made for children, it is still important that you supervise your little one when using them, as well as teach them about the potential dangers of rocking too hard or sticking a finger or toe underneath one when another child is using it.

Everybody loves the relaxing motion of a rocking chair, but kids may not appreciate the traditional models. That's why we included some unique takes on this soothing piece of furniture, like the Costzon Set and the Keet Roundy, which are more like recliners and loveseats. However, for those children who do prefer the classic, wood-slatted design, we rounded up some of those, too.
Mack & Milo Alberte The Alberte has nice modern look with a geometric metal frame and bucket seat that should blend into a variety of decors well. If you are worried about your little one damaging a wooden model or spilling something on a cloth option, this makes a nice alternative. wayfair.com
