“ Brand: Asda „
My daughter has her own patio set but after being left out all winter, the only place good for it was the bin. This year, instead of buying her a full children's patio set again, I purchased this single chair from my local Asda.
The Asda children's stacking chair is only available to purchase from Asda stores or online from their website but a delivery charge may apply. The chairs cost £3.50 each.
The chair isn't anything special if I'm honest. It's made from a plastic material like those white normal garden chairs you can pick up quite cheap. The plastic isn't flimsy in the slightest, it's very well made and can put up with children's weight without any problems. My daughter has actually stood on hers and there weren't any signs of weakness. It has a glossy sort of finish to it giving it a nice shine when it's outside. There were a couple of different colours to choose from, red, blue and green off the top of my head, my daughter chose the red colour. The shade used is nice as it's not too bright but the shiny appearance doesn't make it look dull either.
If you buy more than one chair, they can stack up on top of each other so it makes storing them and transporting them that much easier, we only have the one chair but if we did purchase more then this is definitely a good thing. We often stick it in the boot of my car to take down to nanny's house if we go to visit and it's lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. There is a nice hand sized handle at the back of the top of the chair, this makes it even easier to pick up and take away but doesn't compromise the back of the chair when children are leaning back on it.
The size and shape of the chair is perfect for children, my daughter is three and a half and can sit in it without any problems, and she isn't squashed so there is growing room in it yet. The chair is approximately 50 centimetres high, 35 centimetres wide and 30 centimetres deep. My boyfriend's little girl is five and she can sit inside the chair without any problems too, though I don't think will be suitable for her next year. Asda actually state that this is recommended for children between 3 and 6 years of age and I totally agree with them.
We've had our chair for around two months now and it is still in a great condition, there are a few scrape marks on the side of the legs where my daughter has tipped it over and dragged it along, but as for the actual chair, it is still strong and I think they are very durable.
At only £3.50 for a kids garden chair, I'd definitely recommend this one from Asda. It's available to buy in a few different colours, it's well made and it offers great value for money. I think I'll be purchasing another one for when other children come round to visit, so the ability to stack them when they aren't in use will be a good feature too.
