Guidecraft Safari Rocking Chair Giveaway





Guidecraft offered a product for my family to review and let me say the selection for a Guidecraft Rocking Chairs is incredible. There are the Butterfly Collection, Pirate Collection, and Safari Collection which went perfect with my son's room. Safari images of Elephants lions, giraffes, and zebras painted with brilliant artistic color, but the the designed is hand carved into the chair. This design element is what sets Guidecraft Rocking Chairs apart from the competition and brings the design alive.

My children wanted to know what was in the cardboard box. The product was shipped very secure. Tight package to prevent sliding and scaring of the product. Putting the rocking chair together was easy following the instruction; however the children were all into the project. They were so excited, so it did take a little extra time to complete. The rocking chair is made of strong wood and solid construction.


The Guidecraft Rocking chair has go to be the cutest handcrafted rocking chair. The characteristic it gives off can bring a child's room alive. Guidecraft also tests paints prior to production for the presence of heavy metals. As a responsible company products meet or exceed mandatory safety standards.

My smallest son wanted in the rocking chair so bad. He kept lifting his leg trying to climb up and rock like his big brother.


So, I had to give him some help. See that little satisfied look. He loves the Guidecraft Safari Rocking Chair.



The Safari Rocking Chair is a perfect fit in my sons room. We are so pleased to add this beautiful piece from Guidecraft to my children's room. It is a true pleasure to have such a beautiful piece of children's furniture and bring joy to my family for years to come.
