Little Castle Gliders - High vs Low


The Little Castle Cottage SS Glider - starts at $899
37 H x 34 W x 33 D

This glider was one of our top selling gliders at my old store Sprout. The comfort fits almost every person and the price is less than $1000 which is the most people seem to be willing to spend on gliders. When custom ordered through a boutiques like Bella Beach Kids (Manhattan Beach), Petit Tresor (Los Angles), the Juvenile Shop (Sherman Oaks) or Newport Cottages(Fashion Island in Newport Beach) you have the ability to look through fabrics and create unique combinations for a perfect fit for your nursery. (Or you can hire me to come to your house with swatch books or help you pick the perfect combination over the phone.)

With a custom order you have the ability to add a contrast pipe, ruffled skirt or even cover one in your own fabric to create a true statement piece. The possibilities are endless and lead time is generally 6 weeks. To view the entire Little Castle collection and find a location near you click HERE.

This is almost the same glider at 1/2 the price, and I'm highlighting the word ALMOSTbecause it is definitely not the same. Yes the glider is made by the same wonderful manufacturer Little Castle and is very similar in size but this one sits lower to the ground and you don't have a large selection of color choices. The color notes that it is navy and white but in person this is definitely not navy. I have had clients whom I have consulted with refuse the package at the door once they believed me and saw the color. If you are looking for more of a faded blue, almost more like denim color then this is perfect for you. But if you want navy, this is not navy. But the quality is the same and they do have quite a few different color options in other styles. So yes you can find a cheaper quality alternative at Target but you don't have a large fabric selection.

  1. Any chance you've found similar glider's in white? The Pottery Barn models are about the same price as the Little Castle ones.

    I shopped around for the best price on a Little Castle Glider and found the best deal with free shipping. I choose a neutral fabric and I am very happy with my choice.

  4. If you’re going to strap on the same Replica Rolex every day, it needs to look good with both your Tuesday suit and your Sunday t-shirt, but you don’t want it to be boring. You don’t have to spend five figures to get a great Replica Breitling.The Replica Omega Globemaster ($120) handles all situations effortlessly and is packed with technology like a totally anti-magnetic movement and a more accurate and durable co-axial escapement,you’ll notice the seconds hand seems to tick like on a quartz Rolex Air King, but this Replica IWC is because of a special gear-and-spring system inside that gives it the so-called “deadbeat seconds” for more precise timekeeping.As the brand’s iconic Replica Hermes Handbag individual product, admirable adroitness and absolute kelly 35cm demonstrates what both central and outside.
