P'kolino Reader Chair Review by Leslie Talley

The P’kolino Reader Chair is a comfortable kid-sized chair perfect for a wide range of ages but fits ages four and up the best. It is a complete product offering pockets on each side for storing a few books and a supportive seat, back, and arms to nestle your little one in during story time, quiet time, or anytime! There are many different color options as well as options for personalization. The P’kolino Reader Chair costs $99.99. There are other chair options for less too.

The Reader Chair is useful during our homeschooling days because it offers a comfortable place for any one of my children to sit during their quiet or reading time. They enjoy using it as more than a chair though. It has become a road for cars, a hiding place, a bed for dolls and much more. The chair is made for children four and older but my two year old has enjoyed it immensely and can often be found cuddling her dolls and reading to them while lounging in “her” chair. The chair is lightweight and easy to take from room to room, upstairs and downstairs. This chair has been used by my two year old, four year old, six year old, nine year old and even myself. I am currently eight months pregnant and while doing school with the kids I have found that sitting in the Reader Chair is the most comfortable spot in the house. It lets me sit at their level without causing discomfort and the ability to do our schooling in the school room instead of moving everyone and everything back and forth from the living room to the school room

The whole family has enjoyed having the Reader Chair in our home. It is well made and has held up to a lot of abuse from the youngest family members. My only complaint is that the pockets do not offer a lot of storage. I would buy this item and recommend it to anyone with young children or very pregnant mothers who need a comfortable spot to rest.
