Jasmine Oliver. Rocking Chair. April 11th , 2018.
So you thought all along you were the only one entitled to get frazzled day in and out? Now that you know, perhaps you'll get your own mommy-sized rocking chair too. Try trying a rocking chair and feel the calm spreading all over you. That's the same thing that would happen to your little girl if she goes on board her kids rocking chair.
Just as I enjoyed rocking in a children's rocking chair when I was little, so do my children. They are following in the same footsteps that I did when I was little. They not only love to sit with me and rock, but they also enjoy the independence of rocking in their own chair. And children's rocking chairs have come so far from when I was little. At my grandparent's house, it was just your simple brown. Today, children have a multitude of choices. They can choose a classic style in a myriad of colors, or choose one that is more theme based. Whether they are an artist, into sports, animals, or even a royal prince or princess, chances are you will find a children's rocking chair to fit their interests. It's fun to look back in time to when you were little and then to see your own children enjoying the same things you did. It just goes to show you how rocking chairs are timeless, and how people (young and old alike) never get tired of rocking.
Children can enjoy rocking chairs right alongside their parents. Child size rocking chairs designed for safety and fun are easy to acquire. You can get a wooden rocking chair for kids in the same style as traditional adult rocking chairs, and in a wide range of colors. For very little ones, toddler rockers are available for sale. These chairs have special kid-safe paint, for when those little ones like to chew, rounded corners to prevent accidents, and a low seat so that toddlers can touch the ground when they rock.
Despite the broad range of rocking, all of them are appreciated by people of all age categories. An individual may buy them at furniture stores, retail stores, or receive them as presents. Some producers specialize in creating traditional rocking chairs the information about which may be found in the internet. There are a lot of websites offering rocking not only for grown-ups but also for children in the shape of a motorcycle, a horse or a swan.
The origin of the rocking chair is unknown but the first ones we do know of originated in England in the early 1700's and were made near Windsor Castle in Berkshire (which lies about a 20 minute drive away from Heathrow Airport) hence the name 'Windsor Rocker'. In all probability it came about through watching the therapeutic effect of gently rocking a baby in it's cradle, so why not do the same for adults? England was not the only country to have the rocker at that time, Sweden had another form around 1740 called the 'Gungstol', which just means rocking chair. These originally had 6 legs and were traditionally painted black with gold outlines. A four legged version became popular in the 1800's
