“ Brand: Cosatto / Type: Highchairs „
We now have two highchairs in our house to help with feeding purposes when I have both of my young grandchildren here. A friend of mine gave me this as she no longer needed it. She said it cost her £50 when she bought it and that is a similar price to what I paid for our other brand of highchair and if i compare them I think that they are on a par, both with positive and negative points.
Probably my favourite thing about this highchair is that when you fold it up it is nice and slim. The other highchair we have folds up but I never bother to do it as it's difficult to do and it is still quite big when it's folded but this one is much easier. There is a release grip handle that helps you to close and then open it. Once it is closed this handle will hold it in place a bit like a safety gate does so I can be sure that it won't just ping open and cause an accident. Once it's folded it is nice and slim and can be kept behind our sofa nicely and that's just great. So perfect for people who don't have much room. I think it will also be good to take places if you have to take a highchair with you on a trip then this won't take up as much room in the car as others do.
It is nice and bright and colourful. The design that we have has pictures of various fruits on the padded chair and there are nice bright orange plastic parts on the frame which make this a nice looking chair. The frame is metal but has plastic padding on part of it which I think makes it look less industrial.
The chair itself is well padded with lots of room. I think it is so important for a little one to be comfortable whilst they're eating, it must not be very nice to sit on a hard wooden highchair for long so these well padded ones are lovely. The padding is quite thick so it will help cushion any little bottom and there is also a little foot rest too to make it as comfortable as possible. It's nice that there is quite a lot of space so your baby can turn around and wriggle. The chair is wipe clean as it's got a PVC cover on it so no matter how much mess they may make your chair can be wiped down nicely afterwards.
The harness is a 5 point one and is easy to snap in place. These can get a bit grubby as they have texture on them and getting bits of sauce out of these are difficult but we have actually removed them fully before and given them a really good clean.
The tray isn't huge but I don't see this as a problem as the other highchair we have has quite a bit tray and this makes it frustrating for our little grandson when he pushes things too far away so can't reach, at least with this highchair your little one will be able to reach everything on this tray. The tray can't be adjusted though which is a shame as I like being able to set how close it is to our little ones but this just isn't possible on this so that is a big draw back. It is easy enough to clean though with it being plastic.
I think this is a good highchair. It is nice to have a highchair which is easy to fold down so you don't struggle to get it to collapse and end up just leaving it up taking up space like I do with the other highchair we have! The seat is nice and comfortable, my grandchildren always look very happy in here and the design is a neutral, bright one that makes it look nice and appealing.
This high chair was bought for us as a present when my baby was born, so was put away for 6 months, so the fact that it was foldable was bonus.
The high chair is generally standard size when compared to others of a similar design. It folds easily, there is a push in clip handle, much like those found on stair gates that allow the high chair to fold, this makes it easy to store away and it is also handy if you need to put it in the boot for family visits. The house we live in is fairly small so this was very useful.
The seat area is padded and looks comfortable, though the chair as whole tends to be angled to slope back a bit so my son tends to either lean forward or slump back, but he does not complain. The straps are a three or five point harness and very durable, they are relatively easy to clean and to clip together and adjust as your child grows. The harness is detachable, so can be washed along with the washing up every now and then. The padded section can be removed for cleaning underneath, though I found this quiet difficult as the press-studs were stiff. Overall it is easy to clean.
The tray has a rim around the edge to prevent things falling off the edge, but overall it was a little on the small side. It was plenty big enough when weaning first began, but as my son has grown into using his own bowls and plates, some are too big to fit on. The tray is not detachable, which is disappointing as now my son is getting bigger its getting more difficult to get him in and out especially if he has shoes on. We use the high chair twice a day and in the summer use it outside; it has small rubber grips on the legs which prevent it from slipping about if you have an active child.
Overall it has served us well, but if I were to buy it myself I would be a bit disappointed.
We bought this highchair for my first son 2 years ago, he is now 2 and a half and my second son 9 months is using it now. We live in a small house were storage is a bit of a challenge so we were looking for a highchair that folded small and would slip behind the seatee. We searched the internet and this one seemed the best.
The chair stands at 98cm high when fully out and when folded about 65 cm high and 11cm wide. It is a one click mechanism to put the highchair down and once it is down this becomes the handle. The only negative I have about this is the mechanism has become a little stiff and can be difficult to put down. This could be because of the wear it has had over the last 2 years. I would like to say it does still work and sometimes it isn't a problem.
It comes with a 5 point harness which can be unclipped and used as a 3 point harness when your child is older. The padded cover is wipe clean and it can be fully removed when you want to give it a really good clean as over time bits can get underneath it. I would say I have only done this a couple of times in the whole 2 years of having it but it is a good feature.
It seems a very comfortable highchair with it's thick padding and both my children have been able to sit in it well from an early age. I sat my second son in it from 5 months and he was fine in it and didnt look like he was slouching in it.
At £59.99 it may be a little on the expensive sides as highchairs go but it is well worth the money. Mine still looks in great condition as it can be cleaned completely. It is made very well and is very strong. I would recommend anyone getting this highchair.
When the time came to buy highchairs for my twin sons we had a very small kitchen. Two highchairs can take up a lot of space, so for this reason we wanted chairs that could easily be folded down and put away. We came across the Cosatto On the Move highchair in Mothercare and it
The On the Move highchair has a lightweight metal frame, with padded PVC seat and plastic tray. Once erected is it a pretty standard highchair size (98 x 63 x 64cm) however there is a mechanism behind the seat whereby with which one quick sqeeze you can fold the chair in half into a flat shape, measuring 70 x 63, and just 11cm thick. This very slim folded shape means you can easily tuck it away behind a door or under a table, freeing up lots of space when it isn't in use. It is very easy to fold, and it can be done one-handed. Equally it is very easy to put up. The chair is relatively lightweight, so it is also great for visiting or holidays as it packs into the car boot with no problem.
The high chair has a five-point harness and is suitable from 6 months. The seat is padded and seems comfortable, and is attached to the chair by press-studs so that it stays in place, but can be removed for cleaning if needs be. The tray is plastic and very easy to clean. The only problem we experienced with this high chair was in cleaning the straps and buckles on the harness, although I think this is probably a feature common to most highchairs. The harness can be removed from the chair however and we put it through the wash a couple of times without problem.
The Cosatto On the Move highchair is available in various different colourways, with different patterned seat covers. We purchased ours from Mothercare, where it is currently available for £59.99, which compared to some highchairs on the market represents good value for money. If you are short of space, or after a highchair which it is possible to transport, I would definately recommend the Cosatto On the Move highchair.
