"Very handy travel highchair for smaller babies!…"
I bought a red bumbo second hand for £15 on eBay & my daughter loves it! She is only 4 months old so is a little small for a full highchair.
I use the bumbo everyday, she plays in it when I'm doing the washing up & if we go out for dinner we can put her in it while we eat, it's brilliant.
And the best bit is because it only cost my £15 I will probably get my money back when we decide to sell it.Read moreLess
"Ok, but glad it was free…"
It is a cute idea, and great for the stage where they need help sitting, but this stage was so short for my LO that I'm glad we were given ours as a gift!! My son used it for a few weeks only, then his legs got too fat for it and he didn't want/need to sit in it anymore. He also seemed rather uncomfortable in it at times.Read moreLess

Perfect for that inbetween stage before they are ready for a high chair. Worth buying the tray as it keeps them securely in it when they wriggle.Read moreLess

Never mind what I thought, the grins and laughs coming from my son told me that he thought it was the bees knees! The tray means he can play with any toy he wants, and we can use it as an eating chair when we finally start weaning him too. He loves to sit in it on the work surface beside me when I'm baking or doing the washing up and it is the only way me and my husband get to eat without him wanting to be held (clingy baby). I bought it second hand so was great value for money, don't know if I'd have bought one had they only been full priceRead moreLess

I thought this was excellent. My baby was able to sit in it and it's easy to take to places etc. You won't be disappointed.Read moreLess

I really like having one for my son and regretted not buying it for my girls.
We had a tray so it was really handy for feeding my son in the living room and garden.Read moreLess
"Like many others, I thought this was too expensive to…"
Like many others, I thought this was too expensive to buy new. I bought the seat second hand and a new tray to go with it.
DS, now 10 months, has used it from about 4 months. He still fits in it and occasionally has his lunch in it, even now. It was great for weaning as it's easy to wipe clean and he's in an upright position. The tray is hard to clip on when they're in the seat and although I don't have a problem now, there's a definite knack which involves tilting the seat back slightly when they're in it. We had a phase where my son tried to push himself out of it backwards so I wouldn't leave him in it unsupervised.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the Bumbo, but don't waste your money on a new one.Read moreLess

Bought one with a tray second hand from a friend. Glad I didn't pay full price as my chubby, easily bored, baby would only sit in it for a few minutes at a time and had to be wedged in it!Read moreLess

Brilliant! My dd loved her bumbo and so did I - meant she was happier at the stage when she was fed up of lying down but couldn't quite sit up by herself. It meant she could sit in the kitchen and watch me cooking. Get one!Read moreLess

Definitely one to try before you buy! DS2 loved the one we borrowed, so I went out of my way to find a second hand one, plus tray for DS3. He hated it, much to my disappointment. Fantastic design though and I really wish he had liked it.Read moreLess
"Got ours 2nd hand in perfect condition as they are…"
Got ours 2nd hand in perfect condition as they are very robust. My ds wanted to be upright from a very early age & never settled properly in reclined baby chair. He was soon sitting independently (4 1/2 mths)but it allowed me to place him in sitting position without worrying about him falling backwards/forwards on hard floor. I initially used it to feed him in & he has only just started to use highchair (now 7mths) so we've had loads of use out of it. I am passing this onto a friend. It is a snug fit, however, the design is optimal for good positioning of baby's pelvis & therefore when used with tray, baby's ability to play/manipulate toys is increased. It is also good to take to other people's houses when starting weaning!Read moreLess
