This glider and ottoman set for the nursery is made of solid wood with cushions covering the seat, back, and arms. The arm covers include pockets on each side to help hold supplies. The ottoman also has a cushion. This particular model has espresso colored wood and beige cushions, however, other colors are available. The fabric can be spot cleaned.
It does need some assembly when it arrives, but it's really quick and easy. The metal ball bearings make the gliding motion smooth and quiet for both you and baby.
The dimensions are 24.8 x 25.8 x 39.5 inches and it will hold up to 250 lbs.
Unlike most of the other gliders, there are replacement pads readily available for this model.
This glider is well-constructed, smooth gliding, and has a side pocket to tuck away a storybook! It is so comfortable you will probably fall asleep before your baby. The most frequently mentioned problem is a squeaking noise, but reviews are hit and miss on that point. Some say it squeaks and others say it glides quietly.
This chair looks a little different from the others reviewed. It is fully upholstered with no wood showing and comes fully assembled. Another positive note is that it comes with a matching lumbar pillow. It has a higher back than some of the other chairs, which allows you to rest your head. The material is easy to clean and the ottoman is also fully upholstered. One nice option is to get the ottoman with storage inside. Unlike the other gliders, this one swivels 360 degrees, which makes it great when you need to reach for something nearby.
Another unique feature of this chair is its GREENGUARD Gold Certification. It has been tested for over 10,000 chemicals! It helps improve indoor air quality, creating a healthier environment for your baby to sleep, play and grow. DaVinci is one of the very few brands that offer this certification. The upholstery is free of toxic chemicals, including Formaldehyde.
If you are looking for a little more pizzazz in your nursery, consider this Storkcraft with gray chevron cushions. It's the same great quality, easy assembly, replaceable cushions, and it really adds to the look of the room.
The Babyletto Kiwi glider is similar to the DaVinci in that it is fully upholstered, yet unlike the DaVinci it is also a recliner. Unlike most other gliders, it has the footrest built-in like a recliner and no separate ottoman. The recliner is electronic so there is no heavy pushing back to make it work. One push of a button and you and baby are reclining. Another unique feature is a usb port right in the armrest. This glider is designed like a wing-backed chair, yet it also swivels 270 degrees and rocks back and forth when in the upright position. The fabric is tweed and is also Greenguard certified. Once baby is grown, the chair could easily fit the den or living room decor.
