We FINALLY Bought a Glider!

So – remember this series? We Bought a Stroller! and We Bought a Car Seat!, which was followed shortly by We Did NOT Buy a Glider! Well, guess what? We finally did, in fact, get a glider; it was a very generous gift from my mother.

I was very torn about which glider to buy because, to be honest, I’m a little cheap and gliders are – on average – pretty expensive. It’s not unusual to see gliders that clock in at $500 – $750. When I would read reviews on the cheaper models ($175 – $230), I would see complaint after complaint.  “This is squeaky!” or “This looks cheap!” I couldn’t decided if a $200 glider would even be worth it. 

But, like I said, I’m cheap and was not willing to spend a ton on a glider – even if someone else was buying it. I tried to find one of Craigslist, but no dice. After much hemming and hawing, I settled on the Stork Craft Custom Tuscany White Finish Glider and Ottoman (with FREE lumbar pillow – ooo!). It has four out of five stars on Amazon, and I think it’s a great value for the price – around $215.

I gave it a test run with my dogs in my lap and – so far – no squeaking. Time will tell whether it holds up. The cushions are firm and supportive and, despite what some reviewers said, thick enough for me. I’m 5 foot, 4 inches, and my head can rest comfortably on the back.

Bonus points: It was REALLY easy to assemble.  I did it alone and in less than 30 minutes.
