The Best Bits: A bright unisex pattern, roomy seat, an easy to remove a useful and enormous storage along with tray basket.
Room For Improvement: It takes lots of floor space up and food can get stuck in chair seat crevices.
The tray is very large ,great for plenty or messy eaters , but collectively with a huge footprint of over half a square metre, means it takes a lot of floor space up. Even when folded the broad feet mean it is 61cm wide, although only 30cm deep.
My chunky seven-month-old looks pretty comfy and is very happy to spend time in the chair. I wouldn't believe plenty of growing space for her acceptable for much younger infants, although there's it. Although it is a five-point harness so I'm not worried about her security, the straps could be very loose on a kid that is smaller.
There are a couple of features to the seat that I really enjoy. The tray has an additional support between the legs of the infant, which means that you are able to place your youngster to the chair and use without feeling she is in danger of slipping out both hands to do the harness up. Another bonus is the enormous storage basket underneath the seat. It is ideal for keeping in so they are always to hand wipes, bibs and playthings.
In addition, I enjoy the fabric design, which manages to be pretty yet unisex. It is wipe-clean and is easily removed, but bits of food can get stuck down the sides.
Other features include a reclining seat and the power to store the tray in the chair's rear. I am not truly confident what the benefits of these are though! I can not image when a baby would want to nap in a highchair.
Verdict: A number of useful features on a big but otherwise basic model does not warrant a marginally higher than average price.
This is the fourth high chair I have bought for my son who is now 21 months old, and I have to say, I am so glad I have finally found the perfect high chair for him! I paid £40 for this high chair in Mothercare, but it was not in stock when I went to buy it instore. I don't live close to a Mothercare so the only option was to pay for it to be delivered when it came in stock which I wasn't best pleased about. I had to pay £5 delivery as I was unable to come all the way back to collect it. I really do think if a product is out of stock then they should deliver it for free to compensate!
Anyway, I am glad we waited for this high chair, we are really pleased with it. We bought it in the traffic jam design which is aimed at boys. It is white and blue with different vehicles all over it such as buses, bikes, cars etc. My son loves his vehicles so this theme fits him perfectly.
This was really easy to put together, it was up in no time. I have no problem carrying this high chair from room to room depending on where my son wants to eat! Its lightweight enough to carry a short distance. The seat can be wiped down, and the straps can be taken off to be washed. The whole high chair is just simple and easy to use and clean.
The tray comes off and slots back on again, and has 4 different positions. The actual seat has three different positions too which we have found useful while my son is still small so we can get him close enough to the tray, but there is plenty of room for him when he gets bigger if you move the seat and tray out a bit.
The high chair also has a foot rest which is plastic and can be wiped down easily, just like everything on the highchair, the foot rest seems to get loads of food all over it with my son!
There is a basket on the bottom which I thought would be really useful to put bibs/wipes in etc, but I have had to take it off, as food kept being dropped into it and everything got messy in there, so the basket is no good to us with such a messy eater! It is a shame because the basket is really big and spacious, you can get a lot in there, it's a great little extra if you need a little bit of storage for meal time items.
My son seems really happy in this high chair, I have tried four now to find the one he is comfortable in and he actually sits and eats his meals no problem now. This high chair has made meal times so much easier for us, and my son loves the little drink holder in the tray too. If we give him pieces of food cut up on the tray, his favourite game is just putting them all in the drink holder and taking them all back out again! When he has finished his meal too, I always know, as he takes all his leftovers off his plate and puts it all in the drink holder as if he is tidying up!
This is a brilliant high chair for the money, its a really nice design, it comes in a girly butterfly design too, its easy to clean, folds up too for storage, and its spacious for my little one as he grows up! Highly recommended!
