Little people like little furniture — especially as they become more independent and begin keeping themselves entertained. A comfy toddler chair can encourage your child to sit and look through books during quiet time (especially if the chair is tucked into a cozy reading nook). Here are 11 perfectly sized toddler lounge chairs, ranging in price from budget-friendly to splurgy. (But oh, do we love that luxury option!)

1 / 11
West Elm
was $90.00

West Elm’s sherpa-covered Anywhere Chair is made for cuddling. The cover is also removable and machine-washable.

2 / 11

Minimalist parents appreciate IKEA’s mini POÄNG armchair. The birch frame and light beige cushioning fit seamlessly into a modern living room or neutral-themed kids' room.

3 / 11

This floral corduroy toddler club chair from Target would be right at home in a bohemian nursery or kids' room.

4 / 11

Delta’s Cozee Chair is pint-sized but roomy, with a machine-washable cover and a handle on the back so you can easily carry it from room to room.

5 / 11

The foam Little Reader Sofa from P’kolino has room for your toddler and a sibling or friend. There are book pockets on the side, and it even folds out into a mini sleeper.

6 / 11

Like its floral cousin below, this kids' foam chair has a patchwork pattern but it’s more graphic, less country cottage.

7 / 11

Want your toddler’s chair to have more pattern and pizzazz? The floral patchwork of this kids' club chair should do it! With its wooden legs, it’s also shaped more like an adult-sized club chair.

8 / 11
was $179.99

Mid-century enthusiasts will gravitate towards KidKraft’s two-piece toddler chair and ottoman, which nails the MCM styling but on a smaller scale. The ottoman has a spot for books, too.

McGee & Co

If you want a comfy toddler chair that would truly not look out of place in a modern farmhouse or British-inspired living room, McGee & Co’s olive-brown gingham kids chair is the perfect pick for you!

10 / 11
Crate & Barrel

Another sherpa chair, but this Bear Chair from Crate & Barrel features a cozy, curved back with rounded ears on an oak frame. Animal-shaped things always do it for us!

11 / 11

The most luxurious toddler lounge chair on this list is undoubtedly Sixpenny’s Little Neva Chair, the mini version of their much beloved, cloudlike full-size Neva Chair. The Little Neva comes with two cleanable slipcovers, a cotton linen slipcover, and a recycled faux fur slipcover, for dual coziness.
