Spending time outdoors in our own backyards can bring such memorable times. Kids love to pretend they’re big people by walking in our shoes or sitting in our oversized chairs, but they love being “just right” for outdoor furniture that’s made with them in mind.
Peachtree Patio makes a child’s one and two-seater patio/lawn chair this is sure to make any mini-me feel grown up and sophisticated. The wooden seats can come in a few dozen different colors, but what really makes them unique is the scrollwork on the top of the seat back. They are a cross between the Adirondack chair and an elegantly custom carved wooden gate.
Tick-n-Thistle has an entire line of eco-friendly children’s outdoor picnic tables that will have your little ones huddled up in a giggle-fest while they dine al fresco at their very own table -- no adults allowed. These tables are all made from responsibly harvested cedar wood that has not been chemically treated in any way. The wood was grown in the USA, the tables are made in the USA, and they ship for free anywhere in the continental USA.
CedarStore.com is also committed to making sustainable outdoor furniture and has a few quality pieces for kids, including several different picnic tables and an Adirondack chair. The fun thing about this store is that they didn’t stop with sustainable outdoor furniture for the kids, they made outdoor play stuff for the kiddies, too, including wagons, toboggans, scooters, and a crocket set.
If you’re into name brands and really adorable stuff, Land’s End has some Adirondack chairs that will definitely catch your eye. Little girls will go gaga over the little pink butterfly Adirondack chair or the little blue flower Adirondack chair. It’s amazing how such a simple concept like painting the chair a cool color and cutting the top to resemble something whimsical can transform a typical piece of patio furniture into something fun and cutesy. They also have regular Adirondack chairs in children’s size that come in red, white, or blue.
Pottery Barn didn’t forget your little darlings either and they might just have the coolest outdoor furniture ever. Polka dotted for the girls and striped for the boys with your child’s name sewn across them are the largest, most awesome bean bag chairs ever -- and best yet, they were made to be outdoor furniture. They are filled with eco-friendly foam, won’t fade in the sun or absorb moisture, and the covers are removable for machine washing.
If you’re going to insist your children spend a good portion of their summer vacation away from the television, computer, and video games there’s no better way to get them to head outside than to have a yard, deck, or patio equipped with furniture that’s designed just for them.
