It's sturdy and the locking clamps work well in case your table doesn't have a skirt which prevents them launching themselves horizontally onto the tile floor by resting their feet on the edge of the table and leg pressing themselves off into oblivion.
I recommend getting the version with the removable tray, but realistically, you've probably already lost control of your life, so just get whatever.
Bad points: I like the grippy hippos but find that food gets stuck under the hippo grips and in the creases of the hippos - not a huge deal but it does mean that I have to losen the chair and wash it after each use. Also there is a space between the chair and the table which has become a favorite space for our daughter to "drop" food and practice her favorite word "Oht-oh!". I think that both of these "bad points" could be remedied with a plastic type placemat with perfect placement.
Good points: We have traveled with this chair and although a little bulky (with all the other baby gear you need to carry along) it was a nice way to visit friends and not be juggling an infant on our laps. This chair also allows your baby to sit at the table and therefore interact more during mealtime - a huge bonus for social skills and family time. The compact size of this chair (compared to regular high chairs) fits our rather small dining room, letting us move around it without being squished.
It does get dirty pretty easily but I just wipe clean after each use and then machine wash and air dry about once a week. The first time removing the fabric cover from the metal frame was difficult. After a couple times though it gets easier. The pain is worth it! The only real downside to the chair is that when it is attached to the table there is a little gap between the table and the front of the chair that food will ALWAYS fall through. But, that's why they make brooms. As my daughter gets bigger and better at handling her food I don't think that will be much of a problem.
Washing the cover, however, is much more difficult than I'd expect from Chicco. There's a foam no-slip lining for the top bar that makes sliding the cover off really frustrating, and I struggled with it for a good 10 minutes before making any real progress. The worst part is that I didn't even need to wash the entire cover. I just needed to wash the arm pads, which Chicco should have made removable. Instead, the arm pads are sewn onto the inside part of the chair cover, even though they only attach with snaps to the outside of the cover. I'm considering cutting the arm cover free since it doesn't seem to be a structural part of the chair, but from Chicco, I feel like it should have been done right when it came out of the box.

Nice chair. There is a gap between the seat and the table, which is a problem for getting a lot of food on the floor.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Sturdy enough but food gets stuck in the unnecessary hippo shapes and is impossible to wipe away without loosening the chair every time. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Rachel
I love that it doesn't take up space, but it doesn't have shoulder straps. I honestly don't use it much because my baby crawls out of it, even with the lap belt on.Published 3 months ago by Tabitha
