The electronic recliner and swivel glider chair from Babyletto is top of the range and it shows in the price tag. Babyletto has been designing and manufacturing modern and practical baby furniture and items since 2010 and the Kiwi electronic swivel chair is just one of a few great designs that they have on offer. Babyletto strives to make their products eco-friendly and modern, while always keeping the safety of the user in mind.

Who is this product for?

This reclining swivel glider is for the modern family that has the budget to afford it and is looking for something with all the bells and whistles. If you are on a tight budget this chair is not for you. It is expensive; however, it does have a lot to offer. If you like gadgets and electronics, then you will definitely love this chair.

What’s included?

Your Babyletto Kiwi glider chair will arrive in a box in three pieces, so some assembly will be necessary. You will not need any tools or screws to assemble your chair. In the box, you will also find a user manual with very detailed assembly instructions and a brief tutorial on how to operate the chair with the electronic control.

Overview of features

The Kiwi has many great features and it comes with a one-year warranty to give you peace of mind when making your purchase. The chair has a maximum weight capacity of 300 pounds. Conveniently built into the armrest is an electronic control panel that allows you to operate the different modes of the chair with ease. On this panel, you will also find a USB charging point which will come in very handy.

The Kiwi recliner has a modern wingback design for ultimate comfort and a stunning look. The silent and smooth reclining mechanism will effortlessly lower the headrest and lift the footrest for a comfortable rest. When the chair is in an upright position it will glide back and forth and is also able to swivel up to 270 degrees. An amazing fact about these chairs is that each one is manufactured and upholstered by hand, so you can be assured that each chair will be of the highest quality and precision.

Having all these fancy electronic controls panels and USB charging points is a great option and is indicative of the times that we are living in. The downside is you will need to place your chair near a power point in order for it to operate.

How to get the most out of it

Find a spot near an electrical power point in your nursery or room where the chair is going to stand. Once you have chosen the perfect spot it is quick and easy to assemble the chair and it shouldn’t take you longer than 10 minutes. Remember that this chair has an electrical control panel, so children should not play with the control panel as the child can be hurt. When you are not using your chair leave it in an upright position and ensure that the recliner is closed.

The Babyletto reclining glider chair is top of the range and made of high-quality materials and features an electronic control panel and USB charger but all this does come at a price. Unfortunately, the price is high enough so that most will not be able to afford it. The Pulaski Harmony Swivel Glider is a more budget-friendly glider chair that is sturdy and well made. It may not have all the features that the Babyletto has; however, it is more affordable, modern and also easy to assemble.


In conclusion, while the Babyletto glider chair is one of the best glider chairs on the market and manufactured by a brand that is known for manufacturing high-quality baby furniture, it comes at a high price. If you are able to afford it, you will be extremely happy with it and it will give you years of relaxation and comfort. It has some attractive features and looks good as well. It is highly rated and recommended by almost everyone that has had the pleasure of using one. It is a great chair, with a not so great price; if you can afford it you will not regret your purchase.
