I bought this highchair on special from Target because it had such a long list of features, and as a first time mum these really sucked me in... Since owning it, i couldn't think of any more ways to hate it! - It was almost impossible to clean - straps and cover are not easily removable and there are SO many nooks and crannies - Seat is not properly upright so bub always ended up with food everywhere - Brake on one of the castors snapped off (childcare did replace this without problems though) - tray is way too high and far away - it is so bulky so it seems to always be in the way And to top things off, I kicked my little toe on it and it bled (and i was cursing that highchair) for hours!! I have since sold it and purchased a much more basic, cheaper and smaller highchair (Ikea) and couldn't be happier. my baby also finds it easier to eat in there as she can sit up much straighter and has the tray closer to her at a good height.

I bought this when we moved a couple of weeks ago. It seems good, pretty big, but standard for this style of high chair. I like the multi-height and position options, but it really is rather tricky to clean. If you want to get the seat pad off to give it a good clean, you have to take the straps off and you have to undo some rather tricky clips to do that. I didn't even realise that and ended up tearing the bottom clip spot. I had to cut the holes for the waist straps a bit bigger to get them out and by that time the process had taken so long I just gave up on cleaning the straps at all!

As mentioned by a previous reviewer, I found that the seat was a bit angled and I have got a terry square folded up under the seat cover to lift my little one up a bit, but I guess that is one of the problems you face when you have to fit wee ones to toddlers.

All in all, a good high chair, but a bit of a cow to clean 


Pros -  I really like this high chair. The height is able to be adjusted as well as the chair position. The chair is good for feeding bub while sitting on the lounge as it comes down to a low height. The chair can also position to a sitting position or lying back further. My bub had quite a floppy neck for the first few months and it is great to position in the lying position for his neck. I think its good for a bub from a small size up to a toddler. The plastic cover is real easy to clean. The little table can come of and clip to the back of the chair which I really like. It was on special for $100 at target but usually $150 I think.

Cons - It is quite large and not compact. Not real good if you don't have alot of room to store it. The main colour of the chair is white with colourful animals on it. I would prefer a darker colour but that is my preference.

Overall I really like this high chair.


I have been so dissapointed with this high chair. It is really poorly designed even in the most upright position the seat tilts too far back and my baby can't reach the table properly. The shape of the table means there is a huge gap where food and everything else falls down and even though my baby is quite tall I have to prop him up so that the table is below his armpits.

Also the white straps are not a smart idea as they get stained with food.
