Guidecraft Toys: Noah's Ark Rocker Review and Giveaway

GUIDECRAFT TOYS
Noah's Ark Rocking Chair
Product Review and Giveaway


Guidecraft started making handcrafted wooden toys in a small wood shop over 40 years ago. Today, they have a huge line of over 500 toys and furniture items for children. They have an excellent reputation and I am very excited to be able to review several of their products. 

The Noah's Ark Rocking Chair arrived on Thursday (less than a week after it shipped). It was nicely packed to prevent damage during shipping. While there were a few white styrofoam blocks used for padding, most of the shipping materials were able to be recycled. 

After unpacking the parts and taking a quick glance at the single page of instructions, it took no time at all to assemble the rocking chair using only the allen wrench provided in the hardware baggie. Even with the help of my almost 3 year old daughter, Ophelia, who was extremely excited to be getting a kid sized rocking chair in her room. "It has ZEBRAS on it mom!" 
Hand carved, hand painted.

The chair is beautiful. Both the seat and the seat back are carved in relief and hand painted with beautiful, vibrant colors depicting Noah's Arc and animals under a rainbow. I like that the hand painting, while not factory perfect, makes each chair unique and that the colors are suitable for either a boy or a girl. It is heavy duty (weighs about 20 pounds) and solidly built. With a 14" seat height, it's just perfect for my daughter. She loves to sit and have a snack, rock to music, or read books. She also loves to name all of the animals painted on the chair.

The Rocking Chair is only one item in a fantastic collection of children's furniture. The entire Noah's Ark Collection includes: Toy Box, Storage Step-Up, Book Display, Table and Chairs, Extra Chairs, Table Lamp, and Rocking Chair. You can purchase any of these items at Guidecraft or at any of their authorized retailers

The Noah's Ark Rocking Chair retails for $110 (USD).

How can a grandma pick out one favorite item from the Guidecraft web site? For me it will be impossible to choose and this is why: All of the items seem to be well constructed and attention is given to every detail. Bright primary colors or subdued shades of pink, blue and yellow most items can be found in more then one colorway. From a practical standpoint I love the toybox but the bookcases and book display racks are also high on my list of likes. In reality my favorite would be whatever my daughter would want for my grandaughters.

I also like the Little Farm House Toy Box. That's nice that it has the safety hinges and cut outs to keep a finger from being pinched.
