Editor's Notes

July 22, 2019:

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.

December 13, 2018:

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.
