Glider rocking chairs, or ‘Gliders’, have been a popular sight in America for the last seven decades. Often kept on porches in the mid 1900’s they were the epitome of comfort, people just liked to sit and relax. Watch the sunrise, the sunset, or children play on the street from the comfort of their own porch.
Since then, they have become popular in many other ways. They are frequently still seen on porches, getting used for the same reason that they were used for decades ago.
But, they are also a popular nursery furnishing, as they can aid parents in feeding new born babies. They are generally seen as being quite safe for family homes, as they are considered to be both baby and pet friendly.

There are a lot of reasons why a glider rocking chair could be the chair for you. Just as we talked about in the introduction, if you could see yourself peacefully sitting on your porch watching the world go by then they will make the perfect addition to your household.
If on the other hand you are a family that is expecting a new baby, then glider rocking chairs are renowned and recommended for use when feeding a baby.
All of this means that there are a lot of different glider rocking chairs on the market. With two completely different target audiences it means that there are literally thousands upon thousands for you to choose from.
We understand that most people don’t know exactly what they want when choosing a chair, so we’ve tried to find one that suits everyone’s needs. We believe that we have done just that with the Stork Craft glider.
Stork Craft Hoop Glider and Ottoman Set

- Just like with most chairs, this does need to be assembled at home. If you need a hand, we would suggest hiring someone, or calling a relative who would assemble it for you. Otherwise, get out the tool kit.
- This chair does need to be hand cleaned, and it’s worth doing it as soon as anything spills on it, otherwise the fabric itself will stain.
