An In-Depth Review of the Graco Parker Glider

When buying a new glider for the nursery, there are two things that every parent looks for: comfort and durability. Poor quality gliders can be hard and uncomfortable or fall apart after a few months of use.

The Parker offers the ideal mix of affordability, comfort and durability to ensure that parents safely enjoy their time in the glider.

Graco designed this glider and ottoman set with new parents in mind, and included a number of features that make nursing and rocking a joy.

Nursing Ottoman

The included nursing ottoman comes equipped with a pull-out stool, so users can rest their feet while the baby nurses. The ottoman also offers smooth gliding, so users can rest their feet without having to disturb the baby.

Parents will love that the ottoman matches the glider, and features a sleek wooden frame with a plush, comfortable cushion

Sturdy legs keep the ottoman from sliding during use, and the nursing stool’s legs ensure that your feet stay firmly in place while nursing the baby.

Ultra-Comfortable Design

The Parker glider and ottoman offers a plush, comfortable microfiber cushion that cradles the user.

Along with a back and seat cushion, this chair also has fully upholstered arms, so parents can rest their arms comfortably while nursing or rocking. The classic bow back design of the chair lends to a more natural, ergonomic fit.

The ottoman also features a matching cushion design for added comfort and decor coordination.

The Parker glider set provides parents with much-needed relaxation after a long day – and makes for a great place to take a nap.

Smooth Gliding Action

Both the chair and the ottoman offer smooth gliding action thanks to the enclosed ball bearings. These same ball bearings also allow for quiet rocking, so parents can nurse or lull the baby to sleep.

Because this glider doesn’t jerk like some other models, parents don’t have to worry about disturbing a sleeping baby.

Easy to Clean

While the cushions are not machine washable, they are spot cleanable. Microfiber is naturally resistant to stains and discoloration, which makes an ideal fabric for use around older children and toddlers and pets.

Lightweight Yet Durable

Weighing just 37.4 pounds, the Parker glider set is lightweight compared to other similar models on the market. With little effort, this chair can be moved from one corner of the room to another, or anywhere in the home.

The lightweight design also makes it easy to bring the box inside for assembly.

Despite its light weight, this chair is also highly durable. The frame is constructed with rubberwood, a type of hardwood, and composite materials to give parents years of use.

Classic Design, Neutral Colors

With gender-neutral colors and a classic design, the Parker glider can be put in any baby’s nursery and blend in naturally with any decor.

The classic design of both the chair and the ottoman allow this set to be used in the living room or den after the baby has outgrown the nursery. When used this way, the set can provide families with years of use.

Easy Assembly

The Parker set comes mostly assembled right out of the box, making it easy for parents to get their nursery glider up and ready for use in no time.

Only a few parts need to be assembled, so assembly time is typically 20 minutes or less.

The lightweight of the chair also makes it easy to put this set together.


  • Comfortable
  • Easy to assemble
  • Smooth and quiet gliding action
  • Gender-neutral colors that fit in any nursery
  • Easy to clean
  • Durable frame
  • Upholstered arms for comfort
  • Nursing stool makes nursing more comfortable


  • No side pockets

The only complaint users have with this chair is that it does not come with any side pockets. Side pockets offer extra storage space for bottles, blankets, toys, magazines and other items, and puts them in easy reach. With that said, the lack of pockets does not take away from the comfort, durability and smoothness of this glider set.


The Parker glider and ottoman from Graco will provide parents with a comfortable place to nurse and rock their baby to sleep. The durable frame adds years of use, while the neutral design complements any nursery’s decor. Backed by a name parents can trust, this glider set makes a great addition to any home.
