Toddler Camping Chair With Canopy!

There are a few things you need to consider when choosing the best toddler camping chair with a canopy. The first is practicality, the second is safety, and the third is weight. We’re also planning a camping trip soon and I’ve been looking into a few options.

Why do you need a camping chair with a canopy?

Chances are you already know the answer to this, but let’s review it anyway. For us, it’s having the ability to provide our toddler shade while he’s eating, reading a book while camping, or watching a show on his iPad (I know, I know, not ideal… but hey, it helps when you have to prepare multiple meals for the family, right?).

Rain. That’s another reason, to keep them dry from a light drizzle or rain and still have them breathe in that fresh air outside of the camping tent.

Privacy. All children are different and our son values his privacy. The canopies on these camping chairs provide a sense of privacy by creating their own little space sort of, even though it’s open all around.

Do these options work for older kids?

No. The options listed above will not work for older kids. They are mostly made for children under 5 years of age. A 6-year-old for example may barely fit (depending of course on their height and weight).

3 things to consider when buying a toddler camping chair with a canopy

  1. Practicality – You want to make sure it is easy to carry, that it sets up in seconds by folding it, and that isn’t bulky.
  2. Safety – One that offers some kind of securing system such as a harness safety belt or strap (Note: not all of these options actually come with one).
  3. Weight – You don’t want this thing to make your life more difficult. You want to be able to easily carry it from the car to the campsite where you’ll be using it.

The fourth thing to consider here is PRICE. This will probably have a lot of influence over your decision simply because you have to consider your specific situation, requirements, and needs. Let me give you a few examples of this;

If you know that you’ll only go camping once or twice in the next few years, then spending a lot of money won’t make much sense. A standard and simple canopy chair will work just fine, as long as it meets your basic needs.

Now, if you guys go camping several times each year, well, you may want to consider an option that can handle more trips (wear and tear, constant folding and unfolding, stains, etc).

What about using it at home? These canopy chairs are not limited to camping trips or spending a day at the nearby lake. You can easily use these at home during spring and summer. Perfect for enjoying nature in your front porch or backyard.

Are there other options for foldable kids canopy chairs?

Yes, of course! There are many other styles of canopy chairs for kids. For instance, if you guys are headed to the beach, there are ones that instead of a canopy, it’ll come with an umbrella.

I should also mention here that price and
