Hello. I am about to buy one of these mini armchairs. it costs 90 pounds and I am not sure whether my little boy is going to use it or ignore it! what do you think? Have you got one?
the bean bags are cheaper but only for children 0-2 years and not so stable. thanks for your help.

personally I don't think so .. my 14 month old quite happily climbs up and sits on a regular armchair / couch and DS always used to sit on the floor

bean bags are just fun to bury your body in it seems

they do look quite cute but I just had a little table and wooden chairs in a corner (from Ikea / toy stores) which seems more practical cos they can eat / draw there

I got one mine £50 too. Well worth the money. My 22 Ds month and 3 year old DD love them.

i think its a waste personally cant they just sit on the normal sofa/armchair? my MIL wanted to get a custome made one to match her furniture.... i mean please come on! how sad is that! my ds doesn't sit still for 5 mins let alone apreciate a brown leather little armchair? because he realises how much it costs and has to sit on it!

Ikea have a mini Poang chair for about £14 and a matching footstool, a whicker arm chair for £11.99 and a table and 2 chair set for £12.99. I got the table and chairs and it's still in use 5yrs on has been used for kids dinners, drawing, adult coffee table, side table, for christmas tree. I wouldn't bother with a expensive arm chair kids tend to sprawl when they want to get comfe. I would get a huge bean bag or cushions.
