Find Lowest Price

One of the truly comfortable recliner chairs for kids we’ve seen is this particular product from Flash Furniture, the BT-7950-KID-MIC-BRWN-GG Contemporary Brown Microfiber Kids Recliner with Cup Holder. Quite a lengthy name for a piece of furniture designed especially for children. However, it really does live up to customer expectations because of its superior construction and superb styling. The super thick padding is sure to bring your child to la-la land in no time especially when it is already time for his or her nap. Pull out the foot and leg rest and watch this reclining seat do wonders for your kid’s ultimate comfort. Watching his or her favorite TV cartoon shows is made super comfy with the built-in cup holder. Your child don’t have to worry about spilling his or her drinks while being immersed in what he or she is watching. This Flash Furniture recliner comes with a microfiber upholstery to give you unparalleled ease of cleaning. Underneath this cover is a very sturdy wooden frame that is guaranteed to take the abuse any kid can throw on its way.

What We Like about It – The extra-thick padding on the headrest, the lumbar support, and the seat cushion are remarkable. We surmise these will come in very handy when it comes to providing your child optimum comfort while resting.

Find Lowest Price

If the Flash Furniture KID-MIC-BRWN-GG appealed to you save for its microfiber upholstery, maybe you’d be interested in a leather upholstery. The KID-BK-LEA-GG Contemporary Black Leather Kids recliner with Cup Holder is the perfect solution for homes whose furniture pieces are made of leather. At least, this particular product will address the need for uniformity. And since the material used to cover the extra-thick padding is a super-luxurious leather, then cleaning is never a problem. As many customers revealed, it is as easy as wiping it with a damp cloth and all your worries disappear. However, you really would have to take care of this kiddie recliner chair as leather products do require some level of maintenance to keep its sheen for a very long time. The good thing about leather products is that it offers excellent water resistance and superb durability. Just don’t expose it to extremes of temperatures to help keep the integrity of the leather. This Flash Furniture product comes with the same fully integrated cup holder as well as a beautifully engineered reclining mechanism, perfect for sending your kid to slumber land during naptime.

What We Like about It – This Flash Furniture item has exactly the same features as the Microfiber version. However, what really separates it from the other products is the quality of its leather upholstery.

3Sanford 6498501 Juvenile Recliner Urban Vinyl by Ace Bayou

Don’t like leather nor microfiber? How about vinyl, then? Ace Bayou’s Sanford 6498501 Juvenile Recliner Urban is made of the highest imaginable quality of premium grade vinyl that should make cleaning totally mess-free. The Sanford has a very unassuming design yet its functionality is amazing. The padded seat, backrest, leg and foot rest, and arm rests provide luxurious comfort for kids aged 3 to 21. It doesn’t really matter whether they are going to use it while watching their preferred movies and cartoon shows or even read their favorite story book or play with their handheld video game consoles, the Sanford is a very comfortable place to just sit back lie down, and let time fly. Under the vinyl covering is a very sturdy frame made of durable wooden materials.

Another product from Flash Furniture is the BT-7950-KID-HOT-PINK-GG Contemporary Hot Pink Vinyl Kids Recliner with Cup Holder. What’s the difference between this and the other two Flash Furniture kids’ recliner chairs, you ask? Well, this one’s built for people who prefer vinyl products over leather or microfiber fabric. Additionally, it should be a welcome addition to any home whose furniture pieces or design theme is primarily vinyl. This allows for the continuity and uniformity of the design. But don’t ever think that because this one’s plastic, it feels and looks cheap already. On the contrary, the KID-HOT-PINK-GG has exactly the same level of comfort, the same kind of features, and the same overall functionality as the other two products from Flash Furniture. What should be remembered is that there are some of us who prefer vinyl products over any other kind of material. A built-in cup holder is a standard as well as the extra-thick padding on the furniture to give your kid maximum comfort while enjoying what he or she does best.

What We Like about It – The vinyl version of Flash Furniture’s BT-7950 series is the perfect piece of kiddie furniture for families whose main design theme at home is vinyl. The combination of comfort and superb functionality make it one of the most sought after kids’ recliners.

5Deluxe Padded Contemporary Red Vinyl Kids Recliner with Storage Arms by Flash Furniture

Find Lowest Price

For the ultimate in kid comfort seating, we recommend the Deluxe Padded Contemporary Red Vinyl Kids Recliner with Storage Arms. As its name implies, Flash Furniture did away with the integrated cup holder. In its place is a storage compartment that’s wonderfully covered by a super soft, super elegant bolster-like arm rests. Kids can now store their stuff inside this hidden compartment. Toys, gadgets, gizmos, and trinkets will have their very own “home” within easy reach of their master. What is really amazing about the Deluxe Flash Furniture is the addition of ultra-soft lumbar, head and neck support. It should make slumbering a favorite pastime of any kid. If you remove these pillow-like additions, the Deluxe looks more like a very posh daytime bed but with its topmost portion elevated at an angle. While some individuals may have issues with its vinyl construction, we can guarantee you that it definitely looks nothing like the vinyl that we know. It doesn’t look cheap. Instead, it looks and feels every bit a luxury item that we often see in 5 star hotels.

What We Like about It – If you really want a recliner chair that is ultra-posh for your kid, you’ll never go wrong with the Flash Furniture Deluxe. The added soft cushions provide a level of comfort that you simply won’t see anywhere else.

6Ziggi Chevron Kid’s Recliner by Kidz World

If your child happens to have a bedroom adorned with zigzags, lines, and other geometric patterns, getting a plain-looking recliner chair may provide the necessary contrast. However, maybe you’d be more interested in complementing these patterns with the unique styling of the Ziggi Chevron Kid’s Recliner. If your kid’s bedroom is plain-colored, the Ziggi Chevron can also provide a very beautiful contrast to break the monotony of the design theme. The right arm rest of the Ziggi has a built-in cup holder which can also accommodate TV remote controllers as well as any other electronic gadgets that your kid may use. The Ziggi Chevron is manufactured using the best available polyester fabric which has been especially designed to provide your kid the luxury feel of super-soft suede. Underneath it are layers of foam filling that have been carefully integrated into its construction to give your child optimum levels of comfort whether he or she is reading, playing, watching, or simply resting his or her tired body. Providing a very sturdy framework is a choice selection of prime hardwood, built in a fully functional frame.

What We Like about It – The zigzag patterns of the Ziggi provides a unique element to your kid’s bedroom. The comfort it provides is also exceptional.

One of the most iconic Disney characters is Minnie Mouse, although not as popular as her partner, Mickey. Nevertheless, Minnie has always been depicted as the ideal partner any man could ever want: loyal, supportive, and very loving. These characteristics will definitely rub onto your own child especially if she has Delta Children’s fabulous Disney Minnie Mouse Upholstered Chair with Ottoman. This is essentially similar to the Disney Frozen we have also listed here. The only difference is that the Minnie Mouse actually comes with an ottoman so your child can easily stretch her legs while reading her books or even while watching Minnie on TV. It comes with the same fully padded seat that is built just right for young children between the ages of 3 and 6. With its elegant purple color with pink and white accents plus a beautiful decal of Minnie Mouse on the backrest, we’re pretty confident your little princess will love sitting on this throne.

These two structures provide a certain level of comfort that kids all over the world will really appreciate. The integrated cup holder should make watching collegiate games more interesting. However, we’re not really sure if it can accommodate a small bucket of popcorn.

What We Like about It – You will love the level of comfort that is provided by the All American. You can actually think of it as a preparatory seat for your child to start dreaming big as he or she enters college real soon.

How We Chose the Best Recliner Chairs for Kids in Our List

Picking a recliner chair for children is like selecting the best piece of furniture in your home. And since our target users are children, we had to make sure that it is safe, durable, and, of course, super comfortable.

Safety is a very paramount concern for any product that is designed for kids. This is because of the fact that children are more prone to injuries as well as other health problems because of a still-immature immune system functioning. As such, it was imperative for us to make sure that all of the products we included in our list have been duly tested and certified to be safe so as not to endanger the health and safety of our young members of the household.

Because kids are naturally playful, they do have the tendency to play with almost anything and everything. We know that children, especially toddlers and preschoolers, love to jump and bounce on furniture. Most of the time they make a trampoline out of their beds and a slide out of their couches. As such, it is imperative that our selection only include those that have been guaranteed to be very durable and sturdy. Otherwise, you’d be spending quite a hefty sum to have the kiddie recliner chair repaired or, worse, you might end up getting a brand new one. There’s a safety implication, too, in pieces of furniture that have questionable build. If they give in to the repeated abuse by kids, your child might get hurt in the process.

A recliner chair is, first and foremost, comfortable. It should be able to give your child the kind of comfort that he or she needs so that he or she will feel very well rested. If the furniture has certain features, aside from its comfort seating and backrest, that can help provide an overall relaxing experience, then we considered that, too.

Other factors that we considered included current consumer product ratings and the reputation of the company that made the recliner chair for children. We know you would also do the same thing.

Recliner Chairs for Kids

We all know what recliner chairs can do for us adults. These pieces of furniture have all been recommended by health professionals especially in the management of chronic pain as well as musculoskeletal problems of the back and in improving overall circulation. But many adults ask, are these benefits applicable to children who use such pieces of furniture?

Child health experts agree that recliner chairs provide the same benefits as those among adults. However, because of the differences in both body size and composition between an adult and a child, the impact of these benefits may be quite different.

For example, adults often complain of painful joints which can be relieved by the correct positioning of the reclining furniture. Children, on the other hand, don’t have issues with joint mobility just yet. However, what they do have is the continuing growth and development of the bones, joints, and muscles. These structures must be adequately supported so that unnecessary stress and strain can be avoided on these developing structures. This helps promote complete motor development among kids.

Another area that reclining chairs can be useful is in the enhancement of blood circulation. For adults, this is needed to help prevent swelling of the legs as well as the development of varicosities. For children, this is far from happening. Instead, the improved circulation will help provide the necessary nutrients that all cells and tissues will need. This is more pronounced in the brain where adequate oxygenation is needed to help ensure optimum brain development. If oxygen and nutrients are not adequately supplied to the brain, the child’s cognitive development including memory, intelligence, learning, language, speech, and a whole lot more may progress at a much slower rate. This can have profound consequences on other aspects of the child’s development.

Reclining chairs have also been used in the management of stress by making us feel more relaxed. This is an area where there’s no significant difference in the benefits derived by children and adults from recliners. Both will feel more relaxed as they lie down on the reclining chair.

The Bottom Line

While some individuals may think that kids don’t need recliner chairs of their own because they can use the ones that adults use, the design and construction of these adult-sized chairs may not really be appropriate for the smaller body frame of children. As such, it is a lot better to choose from our top 10 kids recliner chairs in 2016.
