Storytime Rocking Chair — 'Seats Four'


My favorite chair of the year.

Hal Taylor, a custom rocking chair maker in Fredericksburg, Virginia, wanted to read to his three small children while they all shared a conventional rocking chair.

He found it impossible.

So he invented the "Storytime" chair (above, with Taylor and his three kids, and below).

It's a four-passenger rocker with a child-sized ledge on each arm.

Annie Groer featured it in an item in today's Washington Post Home section.

The good news: it's not a prototype — you can buy one for you and yours.

Taylor will be at the 19th annual Washington [D.C.] Craft Show this weekend — Friday, November 17 through Sunday, November 19.

The location: Washington Convention Center: 801 Mount Vernon Place, NW; 800-832-7813; www.craftsamericashows.com; Admission: $14.

Tell him joe sent you.

It won't change anything but it'll amuse me.

Don't worry — I'll know.

I'm so tempted to make one - but I have such trouble stopping our two pulling the existing rocking chair over by clambering over it that having wings to climb on will probably make it much worse.

Now this is sweet!

Excellent IDEA!!

Think it's my fav chair of the year too! =)

Only one grandbaby for now. But we love our "rockybye chair". Guess this is the answer for anymore grandbabies. Thanks Joe!
