"NO GOOD IF YOU HAVE A LIVELY CHILD!…"
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS HIGHCHAIR – if you have a vaguely lively child! My little boy could start rocking this backwards and forwards from about 7 months, lifting the side off the floor, and he discovered he could 'drive' it across the kitchen. By 9 months he could make his way forwards across the whole length of the kitchen and by a year he could move any direction he would choose – helping himself to fruit out the fruit bowl on one side of the room and turning the gas knobs on at the other! By a year old he could rock it so vigorously I was afraid he may be able to tip it up (although he never did so). I also thought that the stem felt quite wobbly so I decided to return the chair (the guarantee was supposed to be for four years). However, I needn't have bothered to go to the hassle of doing this. Cosatto Customer Services inspected the chair and said that the 'wobble' was part of the design (which I thought was rather odd) and they had cleaned the rubber foot pads, saying that the fact that they were dirty must have been why my child could move it across the floor!!! That is an absolute joke if you could see how he moved it – he literally lifted one side by chucking himself backwards and then moved with the momentum of hurling himself forwards again (or vice versa). Anyway, apart from that, the seat design is quite nice, although we weren't supplied with the correct amount of screws for fitting it. The huge base makes the whole chair rather cumbersome – e.g. in the summer, when the weather was nice, I couldn't fit it through the back door without dismantling it and it is a back-buster to carry anyway. Forget this chair, there are plenty of other cheaper, much more practical and safer ones on the market.Read moreLess
"I researched for ages to find the right highchair as…"
I researched for ages to find the right highchair as there are so many about and some are not cheap. I initially really liked the wooden ones as they are not so gawdy looking and fit into the house better. However, i found that most did not have tray or were not high enough for my dining room table. I also wanted a chair with a solid, sturdy bit that sits between babies legs that was attached to the chair rather than the tray and again the wooden ones fell down on this.
Eventually i settled on the 3 Sixti and am absolutely delighted with it!! It is really sturdy and solid and whilst itr is plastic it looks great and people always comment on it. The main thing i have noticed about this highchair is that it aids your baby to sit really upright and does not allow baby to slip forward under the tray as others i have used at friends and resturants do. This is because of the sturdy pole inbetween babies legs which gives really good positioning even from young age (i used from 4 months). My DS is also quite big for his age and there is still plenty of room so good as well.
It has really great practical features and it very easy to clean and no nooks or crannys for food to get stuck in.
My only gripe is that it is not easy to move around from room to room but i do do it quite often even whilst holding DS in other arm so not that difficult and the other brilliant features more than makes up for this. I have also noticed there is a newer version of the 3 sixti which now has caster wheels thus solving this problem. It is also not very storageable or portable but we do take it to friends and family so not huge problem and just store it under dining room table in the house.
I would highly recommend this!!Read moreLess

"This highchair is great! It looks good, the padded chair…"
This highchair is great! It looks good, the padded chair is really comfortable and the hydraulic lift means no fiddling about adjusting it. It spins around fully so baby can sit with you at the table and the base is much smaller than it's predecessor - although I think that's all they changed! The tray comes off easily and you can stick it in the dishwasher and generally its easy to clean. Only thing is you have to be careful taking baby out cos the underside of the tray can scratch!Read moreLess

"Love it love it. It has a padded cover so…"
Love it love it. It has a padded cover so comfortable, a crotch bar so good for younger babies, plenty of leg room so great for chubby babies or older children. Has a double tray and the top tray is dishwashable. Has built in reins as well which also go by the crotch. Tray is very easy to release unlike some. It has a gas mechanism to push it up and down to adjust the height which is really simple and easy to use even for a weakling like me. Really funky and trendy to look at. The seat also tilts back slightly. I have had quite a few highchairs over the years and this is definitely the best. the bbeauty of it is that as it is rounded no crumbs or food get stuck in the corners etc so really easy to clean. Only one criticism I have of it is that it tilts back slightly but not all the way...this is fine but just if I wanted it to be 100% perfect and was being picky this is the only fault I can find with it but my baby is only 4 months as he is fine in it. The other brilliant advantage is it has slight castors under it so you can pick it up and move it around really easily but it is still stable when the baby is in it. It also turns 360 degrees so if you are at the dinner table you can turn the baby easily to face you if you like and you can push it up and down so it can fit under a table without the tray when they get older. Am dead pleased with my purchase and throughly recommend.Read moreLess

"The Cosatto 3-sixti is the best high chair, we love…"
The Cosatto 3-sixti is the best high chair, we love it. Easy to clean, easy to get little one in and out of, tray brilliant and being able to use it with a tray or at the table without (the height is infinitely adjustable to suit most tables)is great. Harness was a little big for her to start with and not sure how it will cope when she's a lot heavier but at the moment we're VERY glad we chose it. We especially love the fact that there aren't four legs sticking out to trip over! It doesn't fold up but moves easily (there are wheels at the back.Read moreLess
