Delta Children Dylan Nursery Recliner Glider Swivel Chair, Flax

by Delta Baby Dropship

This recliner features whisper quite, gentle recline and glide motion with soothing swivel action; Designed with your comfort in mind, tested for safety and expertly crafted for durability

This chair provides ample support for children up to 140 pounds and it swivels 360°. The seat is wide, so children won't outgrow it too quickly, and the padding is thick and comfortable. The chair is easy to assemble and the recline mechanism is easy to use and operates smoothly. The chair also has an adjustable footrest. The chair comes fully assembled, so it's ready to plug in and start rocking as soon as your child's ready. The chair's steel frame is sturdy, and it provides sufficient stability, but the frame is flexible enough that the chair won't tip over easily. The chair's upholstery is durable, and the fabric is easy to clean, but it's a little bit on the stiff side, so it's not always easy to get grip on the fabric to turn it around. The chair's armrests are comfy, but the armrests are lower than the seat, so kids do sometimes slide off the chair's armrests and onto the floor. The chair's at-the-footrest height is adjustable, and the footrest is long enough that it doesn't block the foot rest when the chair is reclined all the way. The chair's back is removable, so it's easy to clean underneath it. The chair's cushion is removable and machine washable, but it's a little on the noisy side, so it may not be the best choice for children who are light sleepers.

Christopher Knight Home Ishtar Glider Push Swivel Back Nursery Recliner

by Great Deal Furniture

GLIDER AND SWIVEL FUNCTIONS: With a wonderfully relaxing gliding feature and a convenient swivel function, our recliner offers the ultimate comfort. Ideal for discovering the perfect position that is most comfortable for you, this recliner will quickly become your new favorite seat in the house

The Christopher Knight Home Ishtar Glider Swivel Push Back Nursery Recliner is a comfy chair that's perfect for nurseries, but we've also found it to be so comfortable that it's perfect for our living room, too. The Ishtar is a comfortable chair, and it features a plush padded seat and a wide, adjustable backrest. The chair is sturdy, and it's made of high-quality materials that hold up well. It's also easy to move, and it's light enough to carry. There are only a few minor issues. The Ishtar's arms are short, so our 6-foot-4 husband had to scoot his chair forward to make room for his legs. The Ishtar's swivel mechanism is also a little sluggish, so it's sometimes difficult to turn. These issues aside, the Ishtar is a great chair, and we highly recommend it.

Mcombo Electric Power Swivel Glider Rocker Recliner Chair with Cup Holders for Nursery, Hand Remote Control, USB Ports, 2 Side & Front Pockets, Plush Fabric 7797 (Grey)

Mcombo Electric Power Swivel Glider Rocker Chair Recliner with Cup Holders for Nursery

by Mcombo

IMPORTANT NOTE: 1. Delivery: The chair comes in 2 boxes and we ship them on the same day but the carrier may deliver on different days. 2. Easy assembly required, no tools needed. 3. Max reclining angle: 140. 4. Recommended Height: 5'1"-5'9.

The Mcombo recliner is a great, affordable recliner chair. It's stylish enough for any living room, and is easy to clean, with a retractable seat cover and a removable back cushion. The chair is sturdy and well-constructed, and the reclining mechanism is intuitive and easy to operate. The chair is also nice and wide, so it fits comfortably across a couch or a bed. The chair's swivel feature and gliding motion are both smooth and stable. The chair's reclining feature is a bit noisy, though, and the chair is a bit heavier than we'd like. We also wish Mcombo included a remote for reclining and swiveling, or a cheaper, smaller remote for reclining, Hopefully, Mcombo adds this feature soon.
