==Lindam Two Position Booster Seat and Tray==
Before Jack turned two he was getting too big to use his high chair any more and subsequently this sent me on a hunt to find something small, cheap and practical. The hunt wasn't really a hunt and more a perusal through the trusty Argos book! This Lindam booster seat was at the time selling in the book for £12 which seemed a pretty food price and it looked like it had everything we could want.
The chair we had (I say had because we sold it a few weeks back at a boot sale!) was blue and white in colour rather than this red and white one shown in the picture. The features of the booster seat include a two position height which makes it easier to reach at different dinning tables, a clip on clip off food tray which means that a place at the table is not always needed and a safety harness which means that your child is safely strapped in at all times.
All aspects of the chair were easy to put together and really the only parts that needed assembly after getting the item out of the box were the back of the seat which slots in the back of the chair to become very sturdy but can easily be popped out for storage or travel. The tray needed clipping on and the belts needed inserting.
The straps of the chair slot into spaces on the base of the chair and the back too these can be removed for cleaning fairly easy and just need a good wiggle around. They clean up well with a dish brush and can even go in the washing machine. As with the straps, the rest of the booster seat is easy to clean as it is made of a smooth plastic type material. The tray which can be clipped on and off is dishwasher safe and if we did use this part of the chair I would always put it in to give it a good clean.
For the majority of the time we didn't use the plastic tray which comes with the booster seat as the main reason for wanting it was so that Jack could sit up at the table with us and use the dining room chairs. The booster seat is easy to attach to the chairs by way of longer adjustable straps which literally clip together and stay tightly fastened.
I would say that if you have light coloured chairs, that it is advisable to put a tea towel or something under the booster seat so that any food dropped by the child would be caught onto the towel rather than the upholstery of the chair. We have now had to redo the material of the chairs as the cream coverings were totally ruined by Jack's love for tomato pasta! We opted for a nice black leather look which is easy to wipe clean!
The booster seat was a real good price and lasted a good while before jack didn't need it any more. It was small enough to store well and is ideal not just for eating but also for painting at the table. Its an even better purchase for me as I sold it for £8 at a car boot!
I would highly recommend this item but I don't think Argos sell this particular style any more. It seems they have updated the booster seat so it may well be even better as the seat itself looks more shaped to add to the comfort aspect of it. However Jack never complain about being uncomfortable and believe me if there is something to complain about Jack is right in there!
This Lindam Booster Seat has got to get top marks of 5 stars and a very high recommendation. For the price it is brilliant and a great step on from having a high chair!
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
