I was given this highchair because the bub it was originally intended for was too big to fit into it by the time he started solids. The table is NON ajustable (as in how far away is it from bub) and not made for bigger babies. My 18month old still fits it but is on the skinnier side.
The other main bad point is that this highchair is VERY hard to clean. The padding is removable but not waterproof so you have to unzip it and take the foam out and put it through the wash. We have gotten past this by not using the padding, which means if bub throws her head backwards quickly she gets a nastly bump. The wood must be wiped INSTANTLY when it gets dirty, or the mess can soak in or set like concrete. Even following this foods like strawberries and cherries will leave you with an instant stain that will only come out after weeks of soaking and scrubbing.
Other bad points: The chair looks worn from all the scouring I've had to do to get all that dried food off, the tray table has actually stared to warp at the back edges and this makes it really hard to slot in and out of the chair.
Good points: It does look nice with the rest of our wooden furniture, so I guess is has appeal to anyone looking for a stylish kitchen. It converts into a chair from later on, and from what I can see it will probably make a better chair than it does highchair! It has adjustable height and an adjustable footrest.
My reccomendation would be to forget style for a few years and get a big cheap plastic highchair.
