As an educator and mom of three young children, I always get excited to discover new educational treasures from Guidecraft. The Nordic Rocker is a wonderful addition to our reading center and provides the children with a comfortable place to relax and enjoy reading a good book.

Featuring a stylish design and vibrant red color, the Nordic Rocker is visually appealing and is perfect for schools, libraries and student rooms. I was quite impressed with the quality of this rocker and my husband (who is an avid builder) commented that he felt the craftsmanship is exceptional for children’s furniture. It is constructed out of birch ply, cloth and steel. Though it is lightweight, the Nordic Rocker is also a very sturdy, durable piece that is sure to last for a long time and is designed for children weighing up to 120lbs. I appreciate that it was easy to assemble and I had the Nordic Rocker put together by myself in less than twenty minutes.

The Nordic Rocker is always in use with children who are reading, listening to music or simply enjoying quiet time. This is by far a favorite piece of furniture in our reading center and the Nordic Rocker is never sitting empty for long. It is also very affordable at only $70 which is far less than inferior school chairs that I have purchased in the past from other companies.

Guidecraft is a leader in the industry and is known for crafting beautiful wood furniture and educational products for children. This family business was established 46 years ago and it is obvious to me that producing excellent quality products remains a top priority. With Guidecraft, I always feel confident that I am purchasing an outstanding product for an excellent value and the Nordic Rocker is no exception.

To purchase the Nordic Rocker or to learn more about all of the educational products available at Guidecraft you are invited to visit their website.
