If you find yourselves on the sidelines on wintery weekend mornings, then you definitely need this heated camp chair in your life!

Visit any sports field on the weekend during winter, and chances are you’ll find a line of parents braving the wind and rain to support their kids. Thankfully, a clever company has taken pity on parents and designed the ultimate camp chair that will keep you warm right throughout the sporting season.

Too Clever

The Lava Heated Chair by Explore Planet Earth features a power pack with eight hours of charge that heats your seat to a toasty temperature. Not only that, but the heated camp chair has three USB ports to charge your phone so you never miss out on getting the perfect pic when your child scores a goal. It’s not all about heat, with the chair also including a cooler bag and drink holder so you can have plenty of chilled water ready for half time. Imagine never having to carry a pile of blankets with you every weekend! We think this could be the ultimate Father’s Day gift for footy dads or the perfect present for dedicated soccer mums.

Almost Perfect

Reviews on the chair praised the innovative design. “The quality of the chair means it is robust and comfortable,” one review said. “The lava back is toasty warm…I love it!” Others, however, said there is still room for improvement. “One thing it is really lacking is rain cover,” Kidspot said. “If it had something to stop me getting wet, I AM ALL IN!”

We think this is a genius idea! Even though most parents would brave all weather conditions to support their kids and cheer them on, this would definitely make life a lot easier! The chair retails for $139.95 but we think it’s definitely worth the investment.

  • Be very handy for sports or camping, a bit pricey but would pay off in time. Halls where children do some indoor sports can get chilly too.


  • is there anyone who wouldn’t like a heated chair for winter sport?? Hopefully by the time my boys are playing sports each weekend, any of the issues that some of the reviewers mentioned will have been fixed!


  • Very cool but we couldn’t afford such a luxury.


  • Ooh yes. This sounds lovely! Although normally I don’t do the outdoor sports.


  • We could have certainly made good use of these when we went to Motorsport events. We used to put plastic across our legs and hold large pieces over our heads (we tucked it in behind our backs). Most times our clothes didn’t get wet. Most people were “too proud” to do that and got soaked. The little ones used to sit on our laps so we kept them dry too.


  • yes please


  • wish I had thought of this!!


  • This sounds like the answer to all my problems! I currently stay at my daughters dance/cheer for 3 hours a night and its starting to become freezing. With this chair i will be able to be comfortable and not freeze by butt off


  • Sounds like a great chair simply for camping, not just weekend sports. Another good buy for weekend sports would be the heated jackets, they are also water proof. Bonus


  • Sounds like a Great chair


  • This chair sounds perfect !


  • How good is this! I know my sister would love this chair as she spends every Saturday morning watching her boys play football! Might have to look into it for her


  • Oh what a brilliant idea…..no more cold mornings at soccer….well no more cold bums. This chair and a blanket and cup.of coffee……nice


  • A toasty chair is definitely welcome in winter
