About Hoohobbers (taken from website):
Hoohobbers products are made in Chicago, IL. Visit our retail store at our factory: 1657 North Elston Avenue….just one block East off the North Avenue exit on the Kennedy Expressway (I90/94)
Hoohobbers products can be divided into two major categories:
Hard goods- this is what we call our “furniture” items. We use this term to avoid using the word “furniture”, a word which connotes heavy, stationary items. Our ‘hard goods’ are totally different than this. Thy fold, are lightweight and portable; made to be carried by children themselves all around the house. Even outdoors-they’re 100% water safe. At the same time our hard goods are plenty durable. They take the abuse children often give.
Soft goods- these fabric items range from bibs to bedding and from art smocks to Moses Baskets.
Hoohobbers products are recognized by independent third parties for quality and performance:

“Bug” was sent one of Hoohobbers Primary Canvas Kids Rockers embroidered with his name. His rocking chair arrived super fast and to be quite honest I was very surprised at how quickly it arrived especially with it being customized with his name one it. Personalized items usually take a bit to arrive but that was not the case with our rocker from Hoohobbers. The rocker was very securely boxed and arrived in perfect condition.
Once the rocker arrived at our door and we opened it “Bug” immediate had me set it up and he sat in this rocker for a good 30minuets after it arrived and has used it everyday since. We keep it in the living room and he uses it as his eating chair, rocking chair and tv chair. He was very excited to see that the rocking chair had his name on it and I think that is one of the most special things about this particular rocking chair.
Since receiving the chair “Bug” has used it daily and we have taken it just about everywhere with us from his grandparents house to the park if we go somewhere where he may be sitting for any length of time he wants to take his chair and best part is that it folds up and is very light so he can carry it for himself. I love the fact that this rocking chair is water safe and with a wild toddler I can say it has been well tested and it’s super easy to clean when something does happen to get spilt on it.
I am also very impressed with the durability of this rocker, my little man is kind of destructive sometimes even when he isn’t meaning to be and the rocker has withheld all of his abuse and still looks wonderful. I really like the fact that when I am cleaning I can simply fold it up and place it behind the couch so that I can quickly vacuum and then set it right back up and the rockers pop together very securely so that I don’t have to worry about “Bug” getting hurt because it wont collapse.
As if you couldn’t tell we love our personalized rocking chair from Hoohobbers and I can tell you it’s is well worth the $49 for all the use that “Bug” has gotten out of it and I’m sure there will be many more days of use on the horizon! All of the other little kiddos who come to visit seem to be drawn to the rocker as well so I think I have a few birthday ideas for a couple of lucky little ones this year.
