This seat is fantastic if all of the conditions are right. Yes, it is sturdy, holds up to 37 pounds, looks cute, and washable (but you have to really tug to free it from the metal ribbing holding it together). But, there are some things that are annoying. I have yet to figure out how to collapse it down for easy carrying in the bag, and usually just disassemble it. The tabs that lock the legs seem to catch against it, so folding it down to fit in the bag just hasn't worked. The biggest issue is finding a table it'll work with when you go out. You have to have a table without a central pillar support, but rather four legs on the edge, or else the weight of the child will cause the table to tip. This isn't a matter of weight, but how it is displaced over a surface. You're putting over 20 pounds on a low point of a table, so if the legs aren't there, it's useless.
Having said that, when you have a four-legged table it's fantastic. This chair has been great when our daughter spends the weekend with her grandparents, or when we want her closer to us during dinner. While we still use her highchair, this lets us keep a little closer eye on her while we try to eat.
Given that so many restaurant tables do not have legs on the edge, this has been seeing more home duty than anything else. When we find a place we can use it, we always bring it along and it never fails to keep our daughter safe and out of the way.
It's a neat idea, and with a little improvement it would be a necessity. For now, it merits 4 out of 5.
Another big plus for us it that it is always clean! The public ones can be so dirty and gross sometimes, but we never have to worry now! Another great feature for us was that it folds and stores easliy in any car and attaches in a stap to any table.
This seat really is a great idea and a toatl must hvae when your child is out of the carrier.
But now that our little 9 month old is getting much more involved such as feeding himself and making a mess, this chair became more of a problem. It has no tray, so there are scratches on our dining table from our baby banging his spoons and toys on it. The food gets caught in the clamps which are right in front of the baby and food tends to get into the crevices. There is a big space between the baby and the table, so food falls in the cracks and onto the seat and floor. It is possible to remove the seat covers, but it's not easily done and I don't think it's washable in washing machine. Also, though this is suppose to be portable, we've never taken it with us to restaurants because it's very cumbersome to fold up.
So unfortunately though there are qualities that we love about this chair, we're now in search of a booster or high chair that has trays that can be moved closer to the baby's body to prevent messes and a removable tray that can be easily washed.
