These chairs are perfect for our 3rd graders. We went from a classroom with mismatched chairs to everyone having a nice navy blue chair that fits them great.

Comfy for homeschooler

from Austin, TX – Verified Buyer

We bought 4 of these for our homeschool space. We wanted ergonomic chairs and they are very comfortable for both the kids and the grownups. My kids are 5 and 7 and we got the 16" chairs which are a good compromise for them. Just right for the 7 year old and a little tall for the 5 year old, but he'll grow into it soon enough. In the meantime I gave him a small stool to rest his feet on. Good deal on the price!
