Turn Turn Turn, A Kids Chair for Every Season

Updated on December 3, 2017

If you’ve got children, there’s something you’ve probably never thought about and that’s how kids chairs rule your life. Maybe that’s a bit dramatic, but it seems like for every phase a child goes through, there’s a special chair, fitted just to them, for you to buy. Here are just a few (of the many) that you may come across.

First and foremost is the high-chair. From the minute a child is able to eat semi-solid foods, life is going to revolve around the kids high chair. From making silly faces, or announcing the latest arrival of the “train into the station,” more often than not, family meals are going to be changed forever. One thing is certain though—how well you and your child do the dance of getting food into their mouths, or rather how well you don’t do that, dictates that the high chair must be easy to clean. A plastic tray and a removable vinyl cushions are a must—cleanliness is next to Godliness they say. Also look for a wide base so the whole unit can’t be tipped over.

Next we have the bean bag chair for kids which really has a lot going for it. It’s supportive, comfortable and can take a lot of abuse. What it isn’t so good at however is dealing with messes. I’ve yet to see a bean bag chair which is 100% washable which means anything that can make it into the “beans,” is likely to stay in the “beans.” So look for a bean bag chair that has a stain resistant cover that’s easy to remove.

Finally, for the serious times there is your kid’s desk chair. Some things to look for when shopping for a desk chair include adjust-ability. The chair should provide a range of height adjustments. This is important, not just for ensuring a comfortable study environment, but will also help you pocket book as your child grows.

As the Byrd’s song, Turn Turn Turn, goes, “a time to every purpose under heaven,” seems more like, a time for every chair for a child. Corny as that may sound, chairs, whether kids chairs or not, really do mark the passing of time. From the rocking chair that lulled us to sleep as infants, to the tree stump-cum-chair for the old man in Shel Silverstein’s, The Giving Tree, chairs have a symbolic meaning and especially for children.
