“ Brand: Mamas and Papas / Type: Highchairs „
Hi there, we trusted the name of Mamas and Papas for good quality products, because we found the Prima Viaggio car seat with the Pliko pushchair excellent. So we decided to buy a highchair from their selections, and we bought the Montebello 3 in 1 highchair just last week. The quality and sturdiness of the product is excellent, despite the fact that it is a very reasonable price for a highchair, and the assembly instructions are very clear and easy. My daughter loves sitting and banging her toys in it. But the only thing we were not satisfied is that the seat itself is not of solid beech but of chipboard, it is solid beech on the side armrests and the table but for the padded seat underneath it they've used chipboard. It would have been nice if it is made of solid beech as well (so just if your child manages to tear the pvc seat then you will be left with a nice chair). Sadly it is not the case...
My reason for choosing this highchair had to be the fact that it is 3 in 1. You can either have it as a high chair, or you can take off the top part (just the chair) and turn the base on it's side and hey presto you have a chair and table. I find it easier to use just the chair at the moment with the tray attached as my baby is still quite small, but once your baby is a bit bigger you can take the tray off and push it under the table slightly so your baby has a nice big table to play or eat on. It is a very sturdy highchair and is very easy to assemble. The table top and tray are plastic so it is very easy to clean them. It is suitable for children aged 6 months to 5 years, so is well worth the money you pay for it. We didn't have to pay out for too much when we had our baby as many things, this included, were bought for us as wedding presents, but looking at other prices of highchairs I would definately recommend this as it is a reasonable price compared to most others. The only thing I would advise is buy a proper harness for when your baby is smaller as this does not have one fitted, so baby tends to slouch a little.
I bought a Mamas and Papas highchair, second hand, for my son 2 years ago. I am now using the same one for my 6mth old. I was very surprised to pick one up secondhand because as you can imagine they do get used alot and they get quite grubby. Well I bought mine through a local ad in the paper and with my first son I worked full time and my parents and parents in law had him for about a year, therefore I had to cart the highchair back and forth. It was in and out the car and as I said I am using it for my second son today. I even think I will be able to sell it on once he has finished with it. Mamas and Pappas stuff is more expensive than average but in my experience I would certainly recommend it. The high chair is easy to fold and store, it is good and solid and stable. It is colourful and the straps work!! Best of all it is very washable and it is easy to get in all the corners to get it spotlessly clean.
I bought the PrimaPappa highchair from Mams & Papas when my son turned 4 months old. I wanted one that would recline back and alos that would become a low chair as he grew. I searched out sites with product tests and this one did well. I LOVE IT! It is a little on the expensive side. £110 new but you can get one secondhand , I paid just £45 for mine in brand new condition just unboxed. It has 4 reclining/upright options, 7 heights and a removable 3 position tray. It doesnt quite recline back as much as I would have liked at 4 months but my son loves it now. Good from about 5 months and will definitely last well.
