5 toddler-sized armchairs your kids will love

Toddlers are active creatures. They rarely stop moving — on a perpetual mission to see, play, and do! Of course, when they do take a moment to relax, they can be looking for where they want to chill (usually it’s on top of Mom or Dad’s head). But a fun and comfortable lounge chair can give them a designated place to read books or enjoy a bit of solitude and quiet (however fleeting it may be). There are so many adorable seating options available online.

Do you want one that is character-themed, shaped like an animal, or maybe a seat that resembles their favorite grown-up’s resting spot? We’re sharing our favorite toddler lounge-chair ideas for your little one’s nursery.

Giving your phone to your kid while you're out at a restaurant, or turning on the tablet for your child while you finish up work is always tempting. Screens are a quick, convenient way to keep your kids occupied, and because of this, screen time for kids is increasing. The average American child spends 3 hours a day in front of the television. When you factor in all different types of screens — like school computers, tablets, and phones — that daily average bumps up to 5 to 7 hours a day.

Although screens are always around us, the negative side effects of too much screen time — especially for children — are overwhelming. Too much screen time leads to screen addiction or even childhood obesity. Recommended screen times vary by age, but typically experts recommend kids ages 2 to 5 spend no longer than 1 to 2 hours a day on screens.
