Originally made from simple wood slats and a design meant to minimize the amount of wood used while providing excellent support for your back and hips, today the Adirondack is produced in various materials including plastic, recycled resin, wrought iron, wicker and the original wood. Today, we will focus on children’s chairs in plastic.
Children’s Plastic Adirondack Chairs
Why plastic? It’s lightweight, easy to clean and very affordable. Kids are very hard on furniture. As any parent can tell you, they don’t always sit on the chair correctly, don’t worry about spilling their food or beverage on it and they can do some serious damage to the chair if they decide it is a launching pad for their next adventure.
Classic Adirondack chairs are made of wood, but even the best wood can produce splinters which can put a damper on an afternoon by the pool or playing in the backyard. It is also a much more expensive material to build the chair with and if you are only going to get a few summer’s use out of it, then it may not be very cost effective. So that is not a great choice.
Plastic is very durable and made to stand up to the rough and tumble that kids can dish out. It can withstand the elements and is easy to clean with some paper towels and a household cleaner. Finally, it is very easy to manufacture so the cost can be as low as $10 a chair which makes buying several of them, or replacing ones that might break, an affordable option.
Getting chairs better sized for young children are not only more comfortable for them, but also safer as they can’t accidentally fall through openings in the chair design or get a finger or toe caught in a tight corner somewhere. Avoiding the first aid moments, alone, is enough of a reason to invest in a few of these right-sized chairs for your little ones. And having more than a couple on hand makes you ready for those summer playdates, pool parties or birthday celebrations where you may have the whole neighborhood in your backyard!
