Stork Craft Tuscany Custom Glider and Ottoman, Great chair for price! Works great for breastfeeding!

I use it in nursery and it’s very relaxing to sit and feed my baby.

Firstly: the price is great. I went and found this chair in a retail store to try it out, since i had tried some other gliders that i really didn’t like and the reviews are kind of mixed. I liked how tall the back was to rest my head against (some gliders are shorter) and it’s comfy without being overly stuffed. It was $300 + tax in the store, with extra charge for delivery if you couldn’t bring the huge box home yourself (this is a two-person box). I assembled this myself, at 39 weeks pregnant, in 15 minutes (17 if you count cutting the tags off the cushions). Follow the directions and don’t tighten anything until you’ve gotten it all assembled, and you won’t have to drill your own holes as previous commenters noted they did. Just hand-tighten the bolts to get everything in place. The glider and ottoman come assembled, so all you have to do is put on the back and armrests, then attach the cushions. My few gripes:there could have been more thought put into placement of the bolts.

I purposely waited to write this review until i had the opportunity to use it for a while. I have had this glider for over 7 months and it is fantastic for the price. I set this up by myself while i was 9 months pregnant-it was easy as it was mostly put together already. I had three requirements when i was picking out a glider: color-it had to be grey and white, looks good, and not cost a small fortune. This met all my requirements. Sure there are better options if you are willing to spend a lot more money but for the price this is a great option. I read many reviews and considered many other options before deciding on this set. I read that some were having issues with the chair making some sort of noise when using it but i haven’t experienced that so far. Other reviewers have also commented on not having enough room or feeling the glider was small.

Comments from buyers

“3.5 starsA gamble that might pay off, Gliding as I write this, Just what I wanted!”

Fits perfectly in my nursery. Came packaged well and very easy to assemble.

Works great for breastfeeding. I was kind of skeptical and hesitant to purchase this chair after reading mixed reviews. Some people liked it, but some said it came damaged and was very cheap. Well, i purchased it anyway because i was desperate for something to breastfeed my new infant in and couldn’t afford more than its price. I ended up being very happy with this glider. It shipped to me in perfect condition, was easy to put together, and was very comfortable. I’ve been using it now for almost two months and it has held up nice. I would definitely recommend. For the price, it’s a very nice looking and comfortable glider.

Love this glideri’m a 5’11’ plus size mom. I can breastfeed my daughter comfortably, read her stories or glide her to sleep (sometimes me too. Lol)it put together easily and quickly. Glides smoothly and quietly. Surprised how inexpensive this is for the qualityhighly recommend. Second update 15 months later.

Very comfortable for my husband and i , rocks smoothly. Looks great in nursery:) happy with this purchase.

Cute, comfy, and functional. My husband and i were both really concerned about what rocker to get, but finally settled on this one- and we are both really glad we did. This baby has held up great through just about 10 months now of consistently being used every night. The chair itself is very comfy and accommodating, with a pretty smooth glide and great cushions. I’ve found the back support even better than expected and it’s been more than enough for us. The ottoman is also much more comfortable than i would have anticipated- and we would know, because we actually have used it as a second seat in the nursery more times than not. The color of both the wood and the cushions is also beautiful, and neutral enough as to not look out of place surrounded by brighter shades. It’s also held up great to all manners of fun fluids (my son is an incredibly spit-uppy child) and we’ve had no issues with staining, which is a big plusto help put things in perspective, neither my husband nor myself are terribly slight of figure, but we are proportionally very different; he is six feet tall and just over 300 pounds, and i am 4’11” and about 170 or so (obviously having had a baby, my weight is kind of in flux). We were really concerned about making sure whatever rocker we got would be able to comfortably fit either of us, and, thankfully, this one has. I would highly recommend going for this chair if you’re having a tough time making a decision.

Overall quality leaves much to be desired. Purchased for elderly mother who is of very small stature so she isn’t capable of breaking a chair with a good flop. If you’re of more substantial build, i would shy away from this. Visually it appears nice enough, but the construction is not sturdy, and the cushion material is incredibly cheap. Thin, stiff, the kind of foam that comes across as dry and prone to crumbling to dust. I will probably look for better cushioning. Again, it’s suitable for the intended recipient because she’s so tiny and light, but definitely not recommended for heavier folks. Also, as a word of caution, be wary of the extent of the gliding motion of this chair. I sat in it briefly and was chattering away as i slowly glided forward, intending to stand up.

I was extremely hesitant to purchase a glider without sitting on it first, however i found one at toys r us that was by the same manufacturer and looked almost the same. After emailing stork craft, they confirmed it was the same. I had been looking at this one for some time and was excited it was exactly what i had thought it would be, sitting in it or not. It was super easy to put together with the provided allen wrench. At first glance, it is beautiful, but after really inspecting it and sitting in it, it is definitely worth more than it is priced at. Although our baby is not here yet, we have sat in it daily, gliding and really trying to break it in. We did buy the 2 year protection, just for peace of mind. The side pockets are convenient to put the tv remote in & cell phone, so not lost. The lumbar pillow was a nice bonus, although i probably will replace with something else.

I searched the internet for countless hours looking for a glider for our nursery (and that might be an understatement). I began to grow disheartened as everything even remotely affordable had bad reviews. Finally i stumbled across this glider and decided to go for it. I cannot speak to the long-term value of this glider, but so far it seems like a great purchase. Things i like about this glider:-low price. That’s a given-it has a high back. I am 5’8′ and can rest my head comfortably. The main reason i chose this style of glider as opposed to the plush style is because i wanted to be able to rest my head. What a great value for the price. The plush gliders are not only very expensive but they never come with ottomans. -so far, zero creaking and squeaking. This was a common complaint for many of the other gliders i researched online and a big consideration for us. I can’t speak to the long-term wear as we are still waiting for baby (currently past due) but will try to update in a few months.

Glad i went with the bigger model with the lumbar support. This is such a comfortable glider and at a great price.

I use it in nursery and it’s very relaxing to sit and feed my baby.

Comfortable, great value, holding up well after 8 months of frequent use. We spent forever researching gliders for our nursery and considered spending 2 or 3x as much as this one costs. We have had it for nearly 8 months now and it’s been a far better chair than expected. I have sat in in comfortably for two hours. I am 5’8′, my husband is 6′, and we both find it comfortable. The pillowcase and arm rest padding come off easily and i have machine washed both. I wipe down the rest of the chair with soap and water. Not a huge fan of the gliding ottoman. The stitching is not great quality, either.

Updated 3 star review: so we have owned this chair for a year. My wife loved it and now it is in the trash. First the right arm broke off, we were able to rig it to keep working. Then a few weeks later the left arm broke, for the most part it sill work work. Tonight, while my wife rocked the baby to sleep the back snapped off. It was a good chair but only lasting 1 year, come on. It was the one my wife sat in everyday in our living room. If you are going to use it heavily don’t get this chair.

Easy to install, contemporary look, and suprisingly comfortable.

It is not necessarily of high quality though have little concerns as far as its safety (note – it is a sturdy chair). For the price alone this can’t be beat. When we were shopping for nursing chairs we were shocked at the prices.We planned on using the rocker solely for nursing and, after that intended use, had little need for a rocker in our home. It is not necessarily of high quality though have little concerns as far as its safety (note – it is a sturdy chair). I recall reading a lot of review complaining about the smell – yes, it did smell coming out of the box. However, within a short amount of time the smell went away. We’ve had the chair for a little over 12 months now.
