The Charlie Crane Levo rocker can't help but catch your eye. It's elegant design and cosy seat are just the beginning when it comes to why we love it so. Here's a bit more about why we think it is the bees-knees of baby rockers.
Levo Rocker for Newborns
Newborn babies feel so very fragile, every movement you make with them is soft and gentle. It's hard to imagine a cosier place for them than in your arms but sometimes it's nice to be able to put them down. Charlie Crane's Levo rocker is the perfect place for this. Suitable from birth, the rocker cushion creates a cosy nest to safely hold your newborn baby. The padded harness ensures they are secure and the gentle rocking motion helps them feel soothed.

Rocking Chair for Children
New style Levo cushions have a removable harness which means the rocker can be turned into a rocking chair as your baby grows up. We love that the rocker can continue to be enjoyed by a child (up to 5 years) as a comfortable place to relax.

Gentle Rocking Motion
The Levo is no bucking bronco - it has a very gentle back and forth motion (ideal, we have found, when there is an enthusiastic sibling on the scene).
The rocker follows the baby's natural movements but can also be easily rocked by a parent - with your big toe from the sofa works well ;)
Created by French designers, Erick Demeyer and Steven Leprizé, the Levo rocker combines traditional technical excellence with multiple foreign influences, in particular the Scandinavian design of the 1950s and 1960s.
The contemporary design of the rocker and high standard of craftsmanship give the Levo an heirloom quality that can be used and passed on over the years.
Levo Rocker Fabrics
The Levo Rocker cushion comes in a beautiful range of gender-neutral fabrics, all 100% cotton and wonderfully soft.
Above, we have the plain fabric cushions, from left to right; Organic White, Sweet Grey and Aruba Blue. And below, the patterned range; Mimosa (by Garbo&Friends), Fawn (by Rose in April) and Jaguar (by Le Petit Lucas du Tertre).
The machine-washable cushion is easy to remove and you can buy a spare so you have one on hand at all times - this is also handy when you can't decide which fabric option to go for, hmmm - patterned or plain? Both!
Alongside the colour-ways above we also have limited stock in striking Hibiscus and Terrazzo patterns. You can see our full range here.
Sustainable Wooden Rocker
The rocker's wooden frame comes in light beech or dark walnut helping it suit a broad range of home decor. The wood is sourced from sustainably managed forests in Europe and preserved with a water-based mat varnish making it easy to wipe clean.
Lightweight and Easy to Assemble
Weighing in at 3.6kg, the Levo rocker is surprisingly lightweight given its sturdy frame, making it simple to move from room-to-room as needed.
It arrives well boxed with instructions and the necessary Allen key ready for easy home assembly. Once assembled, the dimensions of the Levo rocker are pretty compact at H38 x L70 x W45cm.
The Charlie Crane Levo Rocker
In summary, the Charlie Crane Levo rocker is a practical piece of children's furniture that you will be proud to display in your home. It's the perfect place for your newborn to safely relax while freeing you up to do as you need, with your little one by your side.
