What is a floor chair?
FloorFred is an ergonomic floor chair, a comfortable backrest that relieves the lower back, with a soft seat that makes you sit comfortably on the floor.
Why is a floor chair good?
A floor chair makes it more comfortable to sit on the floor, and also makes you able to sit for longer periods of time.
Why is play important for young children?
For children, play is vital, and a prerequisite for developing and learning new things. To encourage play is to encourage imagination and resourcefulness, something that children enjoy for the rest of their lives.
Is there research on play on the floor? Parental presence on the floor?
There is also very inspiring reading and research, about how your presence on the floor, as a parent, matters. Research shows that your presence as an adult matters. The research studies show that 8-month-old babies make more effort to reach a toy when an adult is nearby. And if you are not around, they also become more passive. A pretty good motivation to make some time for play together in everyday life if you ask us.
Do you have to play with your child all the time?
No, the research doesn't say you need to spend your entire day on the floor. Even short daily playtimes strengthen the relationship between children and parents.
Why is different kinds of play important?
Different kinds of play are important. Lively and active play builds children's coordination and strength. The quieter play such as building with blocks or putting together puzzles promotes cognitive development and lays the foundation for language development in children. A floor chair makes it a little more fun for everyone to focus on the cognitive play.
Think ergonomics from the start as parental leave?
As a parent on parental leave and a toddler, you often end up on the floor when spending time with your baby. It's easy to sag and get backaches.
With FloorFred, the ergonomic floor chair, we want to inspire to take advantage of the small moments together.
FORNI advises on 3 ways to simplify your parental leave, and guess if we are proud to be included in this top 3 among ergonomic professionals.
Many people are surprised at how far up in age children choose to sit on the floor. To put together puzzles, play games, play with Duplo, Lego, build with blocks, lay train tracks, the games are many.
Developmental phases with baby?
There are development phases where you want to be on the floor. As, for example, when children go through the developmental stages of neck training, crawling and walking, then you want to be on the floor and encourage them. With FloorFred, you don't have to choose between being a present parent and having a sore back. Sitting with a backrest close to your children allows you to sit for longer periods on the floor.
Ergonomic floor chair
Ergonomic floor chairs are perfect for playing with children at their level. With a backrest, you can sit for longer periods on the floor. And be there where the play happens. For your child, it makes a big difference if you sit a little more passively leaning against a wall or sofa, compared to if you actively choose to sit next to them in the room.
FloorFred is a designed piece of furniture, with carefully selected high-quality fabrics. Flexible furniture to move around between the living room, the playroom, the games room or wherever our little ones want to hang out. Ergonomic floor chairs are an important resource in every parent's toolbox and make it easier than ever to experience the joy of activities on the floor together with the children.
Take care of your back
You get an upright posture with support that relieves the back, neck and lower back.
When you have your legs stretched out in front of you, the pelvis is tipped backwards and it can be quite difficult to hold the back up, we get tired and the muscles have to work statically. With a backrest, you can sit slightly leaning back and relax more.
There is medical research that shows that the best sitting position for the back is to sit slightly backwards on the floor. After all, you don't always sit still with children, and with FloorFred you can find more comfortable positions where you get support.
Play on the floor
Playing on the floor is an incredibly important part of a child's development. Both cognitively and physically. It not only helps strengthen their neck and shoulder muscles, but is also the first step in the development of motor skills such as rolling, crawling and sitting - all of which are necessary before they can start walking.
For you as a parent, playing on the floor offers a unique opportunity to participate in your child's development. Not only will you enjoy every milestone, but you will also be able to witness your baby develop and grow.
Seeing your child smile with accomplishment after mastering a new skill is an unforgettable experience! It's truly amazing how much learning happens in each moment of exploration.
