And relax... at the end of a long day at school, preschool, or just playing, there's nothing better than cosying up in your very own armchair.

When kitting out your child's room with furniture, it can be a challenge to decide exactly what they need. Depending on their age and personality, getting them their own place to sit can be a great way to encourage independence, especially if you want to encourage independent activities like reading.

Or perhaps you'd simply like a little more room on the sofa, and your child would love having their own mini version of a grown-up chair. We have created a list of our ultimate favourites when it comes to kids' armchairs, with something for all ages, comfort levels, and tastes!

For more kids' furniture you can also take a look at our lists of the best kids' sofabeds and the best kids' desk chairs.
