Rocking Chair / August 18, 2017 / Joyce Wallace
Do you remember that special day when you received your very own childs rocking chair or rocking horse as a young kid? For me it was the classic rocking horse on my 3rd birthday. Oh what a wonderful birthday! I was suddenly the mighty cowboy riding on my trusted horse (through the dry and hot desert) fighting Indians as I went. It is amazing how ingrained in my memory is this little horse on a frame with four springs. Then as I grew a little older, I remember getting a real childrens chair that had my name on it and was painted camouflage to match my GI Joe decorated room. Kids rocking chairs are a very memorable piece of furniture because they are a great toy, they can fit in with the bedroom décor, and can bring hours of quality time with a loved one.
Gliders and children's rockers are non-conventional designs for rocking chairs. Gliders lose the traditional curved wood rocker, and instead replaces it with smooth hinges that move back and forth. The same design is adapted for children's rockers that are usually found in cribs. While gliders are more expensive than the traditional rocking chair, this design is more favoured in environments and rooms where the characteristic noise of a rocking chair is not favoured. Gliders that are found in children's rooms and nurseries and even libraries are most favourable because they produce very little noise.
