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
No one really knows how much work goes into making a rocking chair. It may just seem like a regular chair placed on curved wood, but it's more than that. The back of the chair must be slighted just right or the person will tip. The legs of the \"chair\" are much shorter and have to be just the right angle. Finally, the slop in the runners and the placement of the legs has to be just right or the chair won't be stable.
Secondly, you will need to know how much your child weighs. This is also a good indicator as to whether to buy the mini or child size rocker. If your child weighs less than 50 pounds then the mini rocker will work, depending on their height. A child who weighs between 50-100 pounds will need the child size chair. Considering your child's weight when starting to shop will not only help their chair to last longer, but will give your child more time to enjoy their new place of relaxation.
