"So good we have had ours 6 years!…"
I have triplets and wanted a stylish chair as we needed three so needed to be happy with looking at them in our living room. My little boy had special needs and poor posture and we had thought we would need a specialist chair but found this chair worked for him anyway. I would definitely recommend the plastic tray which was a tight fit on all three of mine( other reviewer had problems). The surface cleaned easily and the removable seats were useful as you could wash them every few months in the machine. We have used them for the last 4 years as normal chairs you bring up to the table. We bought harnesses at the baby stage but never needed to use them on any of our three. We have had had ours 6 years so have made lots of adjustments and could still keep them but our kids can fit our dinning room chairs so will probably sell soon.
My only criticism, and only minor, is that every few months some of the bolts work loose and you have to tighten them. Easy to do. The wooden chairs still look new after all this time but in the last year have ditched our oatmeal colour cushions as they had finally a bit too discoloured. So a great buy with a long life.Read moreLess
"Good looking and practical!…"
I've now had this highchair for 5 years and it has been through 2 children from age 6months onwards so although it is expensive, I've more than had my money's worth. It is so compact in floorspace, and looks stylish in a contemporary setting. The comfy cushions can easily be wiped or washed. The best thing is the removable tray table. You can use it with or without the plastic tray cover. I now have it in the "toddler" configuration, so it is a regular chair but with a step so that my son can climb into the seat by himself. I've recommended this to countless friends as it is the best highchair in my opinion. The only thing I would say is that it probably wouldn't work so well with a very fat child!Read moreLess

I love this highchair, I did a lot of research before hand and it paid off. My son had much better posture than a friend of the same age I think because if it. I have now had it over two years, I have bought replacement cusions but now rarely use them. Only downside I would say is the cleaning. The food tends to get stuck in the screws. It doesnt fold but is like a part of my furniture and doesnt look out of place.Read moreLess

"I have recently bought this after extensive highchair research and…"
I have recently bought this after extensive highchair research and trying a few out and have to say that I am not at all disappointed! I am SO pleased with this chair. I was keen to have a wooden chair, as I don't like the look and feel of the plastic ones and they certainly have far more nooks and crannies for food to get stuck in than this one does in my opionion. At the moment, we live in a small flat, so space was a big issue. I had quite an extensive criteria for my highchair: it had to be height adjustable, grow with the child (so not have one of those silly plastic nodules between their legs that can't be moved so they grow out of it really quickly and you need to buy another!), preferably last them as long as possible, have a removable tray, have a removable plastic tray cover, have the ability to put them in straight away, without having to put them down to remove the tray or something first, have washable covers, be comfortable for the child, fold up and be wooden. If you've looked at many wooden chairs, you will have noticed that most do one or two of the above list, but not all. Of all these things, the only thing it can't do is fold. However, when it arrived and I had it assembled (pretty easy btw - did it in less than an hour and had it ready for DS's lunch) I was amazed to see how small it was! It takes up the teeniest corner of our living room and actually looks very nice! Certainly not a monstrosity that many of the plastic ones are. On top of all that, it is light and very easy carry if you can't keep it at a table like us - the hole in the back of the seat is a perfect handle!
Yes, it is expensive, but I bit the bullet and made my first big purchase from ebay and ended up paying overRead moreLess

"I love this chair, so much so I have two;…"
I love this chair, so much so I have two; one for each of my kids.
Best bits; sits at table at correct height, grows with the child (3.5 year old still using), tray great in the early days (although you need the tray protector!), easy to change settings, small area taken up with the chair (it become part of the furniture of the kitchen, isn't unsightly!).
Not so good bits; screw holes get full of grime on the foot rest (grim!), my second child is prone to climbing out of it so needs to be strapped in.
I love the fact that my children sit comfortably at the table at the right height. It makes doing craft things with my older child easier as she can properly see and use her arms without kneeling up.Read moreLess

Mumsnetters' comments: Users loved this "stylish", "flexible" chair. It's "comfy" and "secure" and "although the removable tray isn't the easiest to clean if not done straight after eating, it stores away neatly at the back of the chair" and "the padded seats are simple to remove and dry in about 15 minutes in the tumble drier!" It doesn't fold away, but is "very compact" and can be used as a normal chair later on, plus "when something looks this good you don't mind it cluttering the kitchen". It's "not cheap" but "should last forever". Overall "highly recommended".Read moreLess
"I think it's absolutely fabulous! Seriously. If a tight fit…"
I think it's absolutely fabulous! Seriously.
If a tight fit around your child, it works great, as you don't need a harness. The foot support is fully adjustable too, so you can make sure your litle one if comfortable.
The cushions are very good quality actually. We bought a set of these with the chair and I've washed it at least 50 times now at 40degrees on easy-care cycle with reduced speed and it's not showing ANY signs of wear so far .
I understand where the other reviewer is coming from re: the hard to clean crevices where food gets stuck. However, I've never had a problem cleaning these - if it's wet food, just don't let it dry out and wipe with a paper towel; the dry crumbs are easy to get out with a wet paper towel or you can just vaccuum them out when you do the floors.
The tray is brilliant and ours has NEVER come off and it's absolutely impossible for my son to get it off (he's 15 months). If he really yanks on it, it moves a tiny bit up/down, but I'm positive it would never actually come off the chair!
THe plastic cover for the tray is worth getting, as it's so easy to just pop it off and wash with the rest of the dishes.
Overall, I think the design is very good and my DS is very comfortable staying in it. The added bonus is it takes up a lot less space than plastic chairs and can even be 'hung' on the table making it easier to clean the floor underneath.Read moreLess

"i'm not really impressed with this high chair, we bought…"
i'm not really impressed with this high chair, we bought it intsead of a plastic one as we thought it would last a couple of kids, could be used for longer and because it had a front tray unlike the trip trap chair. the whole chair gets quite wonky and screws have vanished from it, the tray is pretty useless, it doesnt fit securely so a baby can remove it which could cause injury if they're yanking at it, ours had red cushions (it was an ebay buy) which aren't very nice and the inners get all bunched up in the wash, the wood on the step is very worn, but the worst thing about it is all the annoying holes and gaps and crevices that there are for food to get stuck in.
i think it is a really bad design that hasnt worked out that there will be ridiculous amounts of food chucked about when a child is using it, and there are loads of places that bits get stuck, especially in the gap where the step attaches, but also most of these places are impossible to clean properly.
im thinking of getting rid of mine sharpish and maybe getting another trip trap and pushing it up to the table to make up for the lack of a tray...Read moreLess
