Does it need to fold away? How much space do you have? Wooden or plastic? One that turns into a little table/chair or not?

I've got this one . fantastic apart for not being able to take the straps off to wash them so I have to so it with a bowl on the chair.

got this one at my mothers ok as a second chair but a bit inflexible to get her in and out of. Also she could tip it over if she had something to push against. On the plus side it'll convert into a little table for her

I'd like to get one that converts into table n chair, but they don't look very supportive.

I got the same one as pixiefish last week it's really good so far, wish they would make the straps detachable too!

Everyone I know has the Stokke Tripp Trapp and not one of them is happy with it! It has no tray which is the main problem. We got a Kuster , not because of its looks (which are nice) but because it fulfilled our needs - not too many nooks and crannies to get crusty with food, washable cushion covers, removable tray, etc. Really like it. Only downside I can think of is suction bowls and toys don't stick very firmly to the tray because it's not plastic!

if you want a chair that is EASY to clean,pulls up to a table ,has an optional tray,and comes apart for storage then ikea do one for about 11 pounds.
the downs i can think of..its not padded,reclinable blah blah .the reason it is so easy to clean is because it is so simple.
i thought it was really unsightly...but when we started using it i loved that ds is 16mnths even when he wriggles its easy to get him in!surely a plus.

Second the Ikea one. It's great - clean, comfortable, can be dismantled and taken to grandparents.

I have 2 for my 2 and our local nationally acclaimed expensive restaurant has them too. So they must be seen as a design classic!

I've got this one:


Very pleased with it: a doddle to clean, encourages great posture and converts to adult chair.

I bought mine from Mothercare but I've noticed that they sell them on Kiddicare now for £130'ish.

i have a wooden highchair that i got from ebay brand new for about £35 it is fab it is the second chair we have had as the first one fell apart and we couldnt clean it very well...this one the tray flips over back so ds can sit up to the table with us aswell...really is a fab chair..very similair to one in mothercare for £80
