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.

Delta Children Mickey Mouse Upholstered Kids Chair

Hot dog! Little Disney fanatics will absolutely love resting their small fannies in this adorable Mickey Mouse armchair. Recommended for children ages 3-plus, it’s durable with a hardwood frame and padded seat. It should be noted that this option can only be spot cleaned — so if you’re going to let your sweetie snack in their chair, maybe skip this one!

Who it’s best for: The Disney-obsessed kid (aren’t they all?) looking for a cozy spot to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

Animal Adventure Grey Elephant Children’s Plush Chair

Got an animal-lover at home? They’ll adore this super-cute elephant-inspired armchair (or you can opt for a different cozy creature — there’s a fox, an owl, a puppy dog, and other options to choose from). Made with soft fabrics, it’s suitable for children 18 months-plus. Bonus: You can easily remove and wash the outer cover.

Who it’s best for: Toddlers with an animal-themed nursery or playroom who love it when you read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Pottery Barn Kids Oversized Anywhere Chair

Want a classic option that will look stylish in your home? Splurge on a personalized toddler armchair from Pottery Barn Kids. Lightweight and portable (so your or your kiddo can move it from room to room), it features a removable and washable cotton-twill slipcover (it zips and unfastens). Greenguard gold certified, it also meets strict standards that limit chemical off-gassing.

Who it’s best for: Kids who want their very own chair everywhere in the house (and everyone knows it’s theirs)

Delta Children Foam-Filled Chair

A traditional bean-bag chair might not be the best option for your toddler. They’re squishy and comfy, but not super supportive; your babe might find it difficult positioning themselves or even getting up! This foam chair has a similar look, but it offers more structure. Ideal for children ages 2 to 6, this furry, rainbow-inspired option is equal parts functional and fashionable.

Who it’s best for: Kids with a unique artistic sensibility

Costzon Kids Recliner Chair

Adulting is hard — so you retreat to your recliner chair, put up your feet, and have a drink (when you get a second!). Your kiddo can do the same (you know, when toddler-life takes its toll!). This grown-up recliner-inspired chair is equal parts kitschy and useful. It features soft, velvet-like fabric and a sturdy wooden frame that can hold up to 120 pounds. Ergonomically designed, it has a high backrest and wide armrests for supportive lounging. Plus, it has cup holders and side pockets to catch all your kids’ must-have treasures. This option is suitable for children over 3 years of age.

Who it’s best for: Mini-mes who want to be just like Mom and Dad

Baby lounge chairs are not only decorative, they’re practical, too. Your little one will love having their own special spot. Whether you decide to go with a traditional option or a character-shaped seat, your child will get a kick out of putting their feet up in style!

Should your kids have an Apple Watch?
These are the pros and cons of an Apple Watch for your kid
A person checking their Apple watch.

If there’s one thing on every kid’s wish list when they get to a certain age, it’s a smartwatch. Wearables are the coolest and fun new gadgets for kids, and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight with the demand for one. Smartwatches are the height of convenience, allowing users to leave their phones in their bags and do everything right there on their wrists. But since there isn't a kids' Apple Watch version available, children are getting the real deal.

With all the convenience, though, some people have major privacy concerns about wearable devices, especially when it comes to their children. When used correctly with appropriate parental controls, smartwatches, especially the Apple Watch, could be a boon to both kids and parents alike. But should your kid sport a device designed for adults? Let's see if children should wear an Apple Watch or if it's one more device they shouldn't be left alone with.

Toddler pulling their hair

The toddler years are full of development and discovery that can often be a bit overwhelming for them at times. Let's face it, toddlers are inundated with new experiences almost daily, which can often lead to some behaviors you may find troubling. As a result, they can often become frustrated as they try to process all this new information. They don't call them the 'terrible twos' for nothing!

While temper tantrums and meltdowns come hand in hand with having a toddler, there are other behaviors that may be a sign that they're not quite feeling like themselves. If your toddler is pulling their own hair, it may be because they feel out of control, which can be completely understandable. Toddlers pulling their hair is a very common behavior and is often a form of self-soothing that helps them cope with stressful situations. If you've noticed your toddler has begun to pull their hair, there are some things you can do to help.

Baby with noise-canceling headphones

Loud noises can be annoying for most people, but for a baby, loud noises can negatively impact their hearing. Noisy environments can be more than just scary to your little one. The alarming fact is that long-term or even short periods of exposure to especially loud sounds can damage your newborn, infant, or toddler's sensitive inner ear — potentially leading to noise-induced hearing loss.

Unfortunately, severe damage to the hearing nerve is irreversible. If you suspect your young child may have some hearing loss, you will want to ask a doctor or specialist to perform tests. To help prevent hearing loss, you'll want to do everything you can to keep their ears healthy and safe, like getting a pair of baby earmuffs for your little one. Headphones for infants can actually give little ones the protective benefits of noise reduction. Want to know when to slap a pair on your peanut? Read on for all the important tips and info.
