Title: Adorable and Comfy Chair!
Date: Dec 22, 2009
I purchased this bear chair for my son at 18 months old, as he had developed the habit of constantly trying to make seats out of pillows and other objects when playing or reading. I also loved the idea of a 'bear chair,' as his room is a 'woodland animals' theme and I knew this would go perfectly with the rest of the decor.
I love this chair - the bear is so completely adorable, the texture of the fabric is extremely soft, and the chair seat itself is very comfortable, not hard but firm and plush, similar to a high quality bean bag. My son loves to sit on the chair and hug the bear head around its neck, saying excitedly, 'Bear, bear,' and also spends time reading in it. When not in use, I also like to place some of his stuffed animals on the chair, it looks so cute and provides some much needed storage/space alternatives.
The one thing I did notice is that the bear head does not sit quite as upright as shown in the product advertisement. It is a little lower and can lean slightly forward, but does not detract from the appearance and comfort.
The chair is sized as described. I find it suitable for my son at 18 months, as he likes having his own seat to read in, but believe it would have been suitable for him as an oversized chair when he was smaller, as soon as he learned to sit up. The seat is fairly low to the ground and the bear arms encircle the chair as pictured, so all in all it is a safe, adorable and comfortable private seat for your little loved one.
Please note that the camera angle of the shown picture is such that it lengthens my son's height. Also, he is sitting on the edge of the seat and this may make the chair seem smaller than advertised - this is not the case, it is a very good-sized chair for a baby/toddler.
