When the glider arrived, I was so excited about it, I didn’t even wait for my husband to come home before I started taking the pieces out of the box. I even put the ottoman together all by myself! It took less than 5 minutes to have it assembled. Then I moved onto putting the glider together, but my husband came home in time to finish the job for me. We’ve put together a lot of different baby furniture pieces and equipment and I have to say that putting together the glider/ottoman was SO extremely easy! I think it took my husband maybe 10 minutes to assemble the glider, for a combined total of just 15 minutes to get it all set up and ready for me to use!
Here are a few pictures of our nursery with the new glider.
After a lot of thought, I decided on the chocolate brown cushions to match my son’s bedding. I love this glider and I love how it looks in his room! The only drawback is that the espresso color of the glider is slightly different from the espresso color of our crib and changing table, which were made by another company and also a hand-me-down from my daughter.
The crib, you might notice, has chew marks on it which have taken some of the finish off. I’ve looked at things in the espresso color from a number of different companies and have come to the conclusion that if you want them to match perfectly, it’s best to buy your entire set from the same manufacturer when/if you can. Luckily, Stork Craft manufactures everything you’ll need for a nursery (crib, dresser, changing table, glider and more) so you can buy it all from them and have a perfectly matching set.
I’ve looked at their sets to and they are really nice!! But, if you are like me and already have some of your nursery furniture, and just looking for a glider, the difference in finish color is very slight –– maybe only noticeable to me!
After putting the Stork Craft Hoop Glider and Ottoman together, I actually liked the quality and color of this glider SO much, that it prompted me to get a dresser/chest from Stork Craft for baby Jacob’s room as well. Now that I’ve got the brand new dresser and glider from Stork Craft, I just need to get a new crib and changing table from them to all match.
This glider is so comfortable! I love to sit in Jacob’s room with him and rock away in my new Stork Craft Hoop Glider. When you’re a breastfeeding mother, you do a lot of sitting and feeding, especially since I’ve been trying to increase milk supply, so it’s really nice to have a relaxing place to do it!
The cushions on this glider are well padded and super easy to clean since they are made with microfiber fabric. There are also pockets on both sides for storing burp cloths, pacifiers, or anything else you like to keep close by. For me, having a glider is a necessity for my nursery and Stork Craft knows how to make them right!
Besides making terrific gliders like this one, you can also find other baby gear available from Stork Craft, like cribs, bunk beds, toddler beds, rocking horses, and more. You can purchase Stork Craft products from all of your favorite baby retailers like Wal-Mart, BabiesRus, Target, Sears, and at Amazon.com.
