First on our list is the Stork Craft Hoop Glider and Ottoman Set. When it comes to gliders, I am someone who likes to put my feet up, so the fact that this model comes with an ottoman (that glides too, no less) is a big win in my book. Stork Craft is also a well-known maker of high-quality baby furniture, so right off the bat, you know that this is going to be a great piece for your nursery.
In addition to the ottoman, what I also like about this glider is the color scheme. I’ve always been a big fan of muted tones and soft colors, so the beige lining is nice in that regard. To help you keep your glider clean, the fabric of the chair is spot washable, so you should have no problem cleaning up small messes and spills that are bound to happen. As I mentioned above, I would suggest getting a cover for your glider regardless of the material, just because it makes things so much easier should you be faced with a huge mess.
Gliding in this chair is a breeze, not only because the ottoman moves with you, but it has enclosed metal ball bearings to give you the relaxed, gentle motion that you and your baby will need. I do wish that the back would recline to give you more comfort, but regardless it is still very inviting. Another feature that I like about this glider is the addition of pockets on the sides of the arms, so you can keep books, wipes, and anything else you might need within arms reach. Overall, this is a fantastic piece of furniture.
