Tip 1. What are the advantages of adding a toddler & kids chair & seating to their room?

When added to your little ones' room, seating takes on a different function than, say, the chair by your work desk.

  • Toddler & kids chairs & seating allow your little ones to combine play and rest time in a spontaneous way: not as drastic as interrupting it altogether to take a nap in their bed, but still an upgraded break than just sitting on the floor;

  • They help you create a comfortable and safe space where they can entertain themselves for hours;

  • They allow them to feel like a grown-up from time to time, simply by sitting on a chair that is proportional to their height and size.

Tip 2. What type of toddler & kids chairs & seating is right for them?

Toddler & kids chairs & seating come in just as many designs as their grown-up counterparts, although in smaller sizes and much brighter colors (we're a bit jealous, truth be told).

Having a more specific idea of what type of seating you're after before you start browsing can help you find the right model more easily, without wasting time looking at chairs that wouldn't really work for your kid.

These are the main kids seating options that you can choose from depending on what you want to prioritize:

  • Chair: classic and versatile, you can find traditional chairs for any age-group, from the smaller and softer animal-shaped designs for the youngest ones, to comfy armchair-shaped models or chairs that look just like their parents' (the best match for kids who enjoy doing whatever mummy, daddy and their siblings do);

  • Stool: this is a practical space-optimizing seating option that will avoid making the smallest bedrooms feel even more crowded; because of the missing back, we only recommend them for kids who can already sit down comfortably, without needing to lean against it;

  • Ottoman: similar to stools but much softer, this upholstered model is a great choice for the most playful kids who could do with something to crash onto in between games;

  • Sofa: this is an adorable decorative choice for any age, and perfect for them to sit down with their favorite stuffed animal or, if the room's layout allows for a larger model, with you or a little friend;

  • Bench: ideal to fit a few toys when they're not sitting on it, a bench is particularly useful when it offers some additional storage space or if you're looking for a seating solution for two kids.
