I bought this for my 5'7 husband and weight of 179. He says the chair was like sitting on partical board, there was little to no stuffing in the chair. The sz was a little small for his taste. The only thing positive was the color it was a true navy. the stuffing on the arms was horible and very hard.
I was looking for a child's recliner for my 10-year old grandson and soon realized that most of them were made for toddlers to 9 year olds. I was extremely tired of trying to find one that would fit his needs. Needless to say, he LOVES this recliner. In fact, he won't sleep in his bed now! The material is velvety soft. He is a stout boy and has plenty of room on both sides. I'm 4'9, 150 and can sit comfortably in the chair. Thus far, the side mechanism to let the foot up works fine. That was an initial concern of mines because some recliners were having issues working properly. Very easy to assemble. Came in 2 boxes. Place the top/back portion into the bottom frame and voila a working recliner. The cushion of the recliner is very firm, which I'm assuming will give some over time. However, overall I'm very pleased with this purchase.
