The Aldi rocking chair is back – with a contemporary new look for 2020

The nursery must-have has had a fashionable makeover for the new year

Aldi’s much-loved Baby and Toddler Specialbuys event is back this week! The new collection features the unmissable Aldi rocking chair, which in previous years proved so popular it sold out in less than 60 seconds!

A new year of course means it's back but with a fresh new style – so will it prove as popular? It's the same price, of £149.99, with even more style so we predict the answer is yes.

The fashionable new-look rocker is an online exclusive, not available in stores.

This is the new Aldi rocking chair. very similar to the famous nursery chair, which sold out in less than a minute when previously released! The luxurious Accent Rocking Chair is still just £149.99, a price that has no increased year on year. The stylish Scandi-style rocker is available in on-trend neutral grey/oatmeal colourway with exposed wooden legs.

The main differences to the design are the modern rocker legs, this year they are a more streamlined scandi design. Additionally the seat itself no longer features a traditional button back finish – instead it's a more  boxy contemporary design, still with comfort as its core.

This brilliant design is ideal for providing a comfy place to perch while tending to baby, at all hours. Whether feeding or simply bonding this chair ensures optimum comfort.

The new chair comes complete with choice of easy-to-fit standard or rocking legs, same as before. It can therefore be easily converted to a modern armchair, ideal for a living room once baby is bigger. Anyone else tempted to sit rocking in front of their favourite TV soap every night? After all who says rockers are just for nurseries?
