3.0 out of 5 stars Great looking chair but has some design flaws.
First off, let me say that this high-chair is very visually appealing. It looks great in our house, and the taupe seat matches very well with our color scheme of gray, beige and blues. I definitely do not feel that the quality of construction justifies the price (about $260 when we bought it). The legs, while a nice walnut brown color, are constructed with particle...

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the perfect high chair!,
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What's this?)
I was very happy to be see this chair offered. My daughter is almost 7 months and I have tried other conventional high chairs and do not like them. The other standard high chairs take up so much room. Even if they fold up and are portable they weigh a lot and always slide apart when moving from room to room. Most high chairs sit so far out from the wall you have to walk around them. I live in a smaller place and have a small two seater dinning table with two drop leafs so I was happy to try this.
It came with a few more pieces than I thought it would but assembly was not hard at all. The instructions were not that clear, however, it was self explanatory on how to assemble. Once I had it built I was so impressed with it. I tried it out with my daughter, 6 months, with the sticker still on the tray. I was able to pull her up to the table with me. The great thing is you are able to remove the tray and push the chair up to the table and it is the perfect height. My daughter was sitting at the table with us instead of by herself. You could tell she likes feeling more included.
One thing my daughter never has liked is being strapped in. A lot of straps are also really harsh material and dig into their neck or skin even if not tightened. I love the straps/harness for this chair. Very easy to adjust and does not bother her one bit. The thing I love, you can tell by my photos I am adding, that once the harness is on her with a bib, you cannot see the straps. I have not had to worry about her getting her favorite food, sweet potatoes, all over them.
I own another conventional high chair that claimed to have a swing out tray. I hated that high chair and the tray did not swing out. The company stated you can hold you baby while opening the chair. It never worked for me. The other you had to hold the button it, push it, line it up, you name it. This one, I can hold my daughter who is 20 lbs. and pull the tray out. It is right under the front of the tray and is so easy to maneuver. I then put the tray on the table and place the baby in the chair and strap her in. Once strapped in I slide the tray back on and she knows it is time for food.
Another great feature that I am sure they did not add but I have used, is the extra footsteps come in so handy. If I am feeding her with a kitchen chair facing her I cannot place her food onto the highchair without her knocking it over and also need easy access to a washcloth in case her face gets messy. In come the footsteps. Since her feet just dangle over the edge I place her bowl of food and washcloth (dry) on the steps. It is so nice to have them right under me and out of her reach.
If I could have designed a highchair, this would be it. It has more features and use than I though it would have. I am so happy my daughter has many years to grow with it. If the foam backing and sides do not hold up or I want to change the color I may do so by ordering the OXO Tot Sprout Chair Replacement Cushion Set, Orange . My chair comes with the green but they also have orange or taupe.
Last, the chair is incredibly sturdy. It does not tilt back or forth or left to right, very stable. I am trying to think of any cons but everyday I think of more features I like about the chair. I consider myself a very picky person but this chair is remarkable! Please see the photo gallery for comparison to the conventional high chair and also photos of my daughter in it.
Added August 17th, 2011. This high char is still in the best one out there. I use it three times a day for my daughter who will now be 10 months in a few days. I wanted to add a few things. My daughter has a bad gag reflux and has thrown up her whole meal in the high chair. It got in the straps, the plastic, you name it. However, I was able to wash the straps in the washing machine. I have done so with the straps several times and they come out looking like new! Also, if vomit or wet food gets in the plastic, it is easy to disassemble and clean the parts and place them back together. The part between her legs that the tray slides onto has been covered in vomit. I removed the screws at the bottom and clean the plastic pieces, waited for them to dry and put the screws back in. The chair is good as new! A lot of high chairs you would be stuck with food in the chair, not with this one. They truly thought of everything with this one. Again, being a perfectionist and clean freak I love this chair.
Update on September 8, 2012: My daughter will be 2 next month and the chair is still going strong! I have removed the shoulder straps since she was getting them dirty with all of her meals and I had to clean them in the washer every night. Without the shoulder straps she wears a toddler bib with a food pocket to catch any food. I still use the tray and pull her up to the table and have her sit next to me that way. With the tray attached and always under supervision, she is safe.
Her feet used to dangle and now sit on the step. She is about 3 feet tall now and 33 lbs. I still just gently wipe any food particles from the steps with a light damp cloth so it does not damage the wood.
The biggest issue I have had and it seems other owner has had as well is food getting under the pad. With my daughter being almost 2 and eating more types of food, a lot of it ends up on the side or the bottom pad. I am really good about wiping the top of the pad off and removing the pad if she gets any underneath it. I use warm water and soap on a sponge and gently clean it off the underside which is felt like. It looks like new. However, my problem has been the three adhesive circles the pad has to attach to. Wet food gets under the pad and trying to clean it out of the adhesive parts, well, it smeared and made it worse. After awhile I could smell it. I tried cleaning it with a soapy sponge but it seemed to only touch the top surface. After a commenter wrote that they were going to use a toothbrush for their cleaning I saw I vegetable scrubber under my sink and decided to give that a go on the adhesive circles. I took warm water and some soap and turned it in a circular motion. It did loosen the food very well! I was surprised I did not think of cleaning it that way sooner. I might replace the three adhesive parts if they continue to get dirty. If I do that, the chair will look like it did the day I got it.
Over all I cannot say enough great things about this highchair. My mother has a highchair for my daughter at her house and it just seems so bulky and big. I love the OXO chair because it grows with your child. My daughter started using it at only a few months and will be 2 years next month. The chairs looks great as well, I get many compliments on it. I also have matched it up to the OXO dinnerware such as OXO Tot Plate, Green, OXO Tot Divided Plate, Green, OXO Tot Fork and Spoon Set, Green, OXO Tot Feeding Spoon Set, Aqua, just to name a few. I get them all in green to match her chair. I still love this highchair.
Added January 30, 2013: My daughter is now 2 years and 3 months; this is the only chair we still use! It shows little to no signs of wear on the wood at all. There are a few small nicks from moving it around or from me vacuuming up near it, so small though you cannot see it. All white parts are still white! I still use the tray but have removed ALL of the straps. The bottom strap I had to remove the middle plastic part but ended up being a blessing because I cleaned it when I removed it. There was some food stuck in the center part. I cleaned it with some soapy water and let it air dry before putting the screws back in it on the chair. The only thing that has changed is the chair is not as stable. My daughter is almost 40 pounds but does get excited and shakes the chair back and forth. I am assuming that is the reason. I thought perhaps the chair needed to be tightened so tightened all the screws and it still wobbles a bit. There are screws under the chair area as well that I tightened and it still wobbles. I literally tightened ever screw on the chair. I did not want to tighten it too much because you will hear the wood start to creak/crack which is too much pressure. Over the last few months I have had to remove the bottom chair pad to clean food under it and also wipe the underside of the pad with a warm soapy sponge and let it air dry. It is like new putting it back! I don't see myself having to replace the pads at all due to use. They look new and clean well. The adhesive parts they stick to I wish I could remove but they are covered so I am OK with that. Another think if you have a climbing toddler they might try to climb into the chair. Twice my daughter was just in the highchair and I did not understand how. I asked her to show me and she climbed the stairs like a ladder and over the tray and then slid it. I put an end to that right away since it was very unsafe. Wanted to warn other parents in case you see your child in the chair wondering how they got into it. It is not OXO's problem, toddlers will climb. Now knowing how she did it I keep the chair in a corner she can't get to. Still have years with this chair and will continue to update it as I see fit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great chair with a few minor gripes. Be sure to consider alternatives ... see video.,
The chair itself is really great. The main advantage of the chair, is its ability to "transition" for each stage of your little one's life (well at least till they are about 5). The chair makes a great high chair, but falls short on the toddler section. For the price, this may make you think twice. Where it falls short: the removable center seat post is required for the harness. There is no 5 to 3 point, or even a 2 point (regular seat belt) option. For this money, OXO should have thought of this. I would love to see an additional option to purchase (or include it... really that would be best) different seat restraints. My toddlers didn't really need a 5 point harness, but a simple seat belt would be great.
As a youth chair it works fine (my 4 year old does just great in it). But my 2 1/2 year old is not so good. He has to sit back to eat with the harness and the middle seat post in place. We don't feel comfortable just letting him sit without any restraint yet, and the only option is either 5 point, or nothing. So that is where this chair really disappoints.
Finally, it is also really expensive. We were using the Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Booster Seat, Red/White in blue / green on a simple dining room chair. It worked great and we simply never removed it. As long as you really secure it, it seems to work fantastic. As always - you need to keep an eye on your kids at the table in any chair, and this one along with the OXO requires adult supervision. But what really is great about the fisher price set , is the height adjustability, the dishwasher safe tray, the 3 point harness for little ones that no longer need a 5 point (about every 9 month old or so) harness, and of course the price. You could buy almost 10 of the fisher price seats for the cost of 1 OXO tot.
So if the 250 is steep or your parents didn't get you one during the baby shower, you might consider a solid dining room chair with the fisher price (secured properly) booster as a solid alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great high chair,
This is a great high chair! When I was shopping for high chairs, I wanted something that would look nice, without the gaudy rainforest patterns, so I narrowed down my choices to the Tripp Trapp, the Keekaroo, and the Oxo Tot Sprout. I ruled out the Tripp Trapp because it did not come with a tray, and if I wanted to use it with an infant of 4+ months, I'd have to buy another expensive infant insert that did not look at all comfortable. I had also read some negative reviews about the chair tipping backwards. The Keekaroo looked very similar to the Tripp Trapp and came with a tray, but the tray was made of wood with lots of cracks to hide food and required two hands to put on and take off. I decided on the Sprout chair and I'm really glad I did! I used this chair when my baby was 4 months old and he is now almost 11 months and we are going strong. So my review applies to babies who are very little and need a lot of support, but I have no experience yet with toddlers.
Really nice design, is not an eye sore in my kitchen
Plastic seat and cushions are easy to wipe clean and comfortable to sit in
Crotch post keeps baby from submarining under the chair
Shoulder harness (the Tripp Trapp etc only has a waist belt) keeps a squirmy baby from crawling out of the chair, and a younger baby from flopping over.
Good sized plastic tray, ONE HANDED RELEASE (so important when you have a baby in one arm, and the tray in the other!!!)
The seat is height adjustable
I like to rest my foot on the foot rest--great for mama, good for baby when he is old enough to climb into the chair himself.
This chair is advertised to slide up to the dinner table to allow toddlers to eat with the grown ups, just like the Tripp Trapp and the Keekaroo. You just lower the seat and remove the post. However, unlike the TT and the KK, this chair has arms which might hit the table and prevent the chair from sliding all the way under the table. The height of the arms of the Sprout chair, at the lowest setting, is 26". Please measure the bottom of your table to make sure this chair can fit under your table. You need at least 26" of clearance. My table has a "pocket" under the table to hold extra leaves, and the arms of the Sprout hits against the "pocket" and does not slide all the way under the table. When it comes time for my baby to use this chair as a real chair, we may be forced to raise the table 0.5" or cut the legs of this high chair, but hopefully by then we will have another baby who can use this chair as is!
The tray traps water inside the cracks so after you wash it, you can hear water swishing around. I shake the tray violently to get the water out.
The straps and the clips seem really cheap for a high chair that is otherwise such high quality. The straps have a tendency to twist.
Overall, in spite of these cons, this is still a great chair and I have no regrets in my purchase of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spring for a Sprout,
This chair is so practical in every way, and it's extremely attractive. It is compact, easy to clean, sturdy, inclusive for baby at the dinner table, easy to assemble, supportive, and just so easy to use. The OXO design team thought of everything when they made this chair. It also grows with your baby and I can see it being useful for 5-6 years if we have multiple kids.
At first I thought I wanted a Stokke because I liked the idea of having my child eat at the table with us. However, after researching potential safety issues if you don't use it properly, and seeing the total price for the chair with all the necessary infant parts, I decided it was just too complex for my already too complex life even if it makes you feel like a progressive parent with a European ethos.
Enter the OXO Sprout. America at its best. I've never seen such an expensive baby item that is so highly rated on Amazon, and there's a reason: It's basically perfect. If you don't buy it and opt for something cheaper, you'll always wish you'd sprung for a Sprout. If you spend too much on a Stokke, you'll always try to over-intellectualize your decision but deep down you'll know you should have gotten the Sprout and accepted your inner American pragmatism.
Don't over-think this decision on price point or philosophy. Buy the Sprout and love it without regret.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oxo beats Graco Blossom, Keekaroo, Stooke, Boon...,
A great chair. We looked at the Graco Blossom, the Keekaroo, the Stokke, the Boon, and the Oxo. Ultimately this one won due to it being the most affordable long lasting (grow with your child) chair with a reasonably small footprint for our eat-in kitchen. The Graco Blossom had a bigger footprint than I wanted, it didn't fold away, and the booster seat was a separate attachment that I had to find room to store. The Keekaroo and the Stokke, require additional parts to allow the item to grow with baby through various stages. By the time we added up all the pieces, the Oxo was a much better buy. The Boon looked like a great chair, but wouldn't last as long with baby. Ultimately we decided to spring for the Oxo and give it a try. So far we're loving it!
-Reasonably small footprint
-Attractive modern design
-Sturdy wooden base with strong seat (hopefully will last through multiple kids)
-Easy to clean
-Secure 5 point harness with a between the leg portion that is attached to the base vs. the tray (that way baby is still secure even when the tray is removed)
-Easy to remove tray (I can pull it out with one hand)
-Grows with baby and transitions to booster seat
-Can be pushed up to the table for an older toddler wanting to eat with the family vs. from a tray
-Doesn't recline like some conventional high chairs do. So, baby does have to be 6 months to use it. Chairs that recline can be used sooner for bottle feeding.
-Large seat that may not be suitable for smaller baby (our little guy is skinny so we have to put receiving blankets rolled up beside him...but I think it's worth it to buy something that he can use when he's bigger too)
-Doesn't fold away. This chair is meant to stay in place at the table.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great looking chair but has some design flaws.,
This review is from: OXO Tot Sprout Chair, Taupe/Walnut (Baby Product)
First off, let me say that this high-chair is very visually appealing. It looks great in our house, and the taupe seat matches very well with our color scheme of gray, beige and blues. I definitely do not feel that the quality of construction justifies the price (about $260 when we bought it). The legs, while a nice walnut brown color, are constructed with particle board, and held together with these big visible bolt/screws. For this price, I would expect real wood, and more subtle placement of screws. Also, I do not know what I was thinking in purchasing a wood high-chair that was mostly made of plastic. I wanted a wood chair for the look, and also for ease of clean-up and to keep our baby being exposed to too much plastic. So although this chair looks nice, I failed on all three intentions.
The plastic in this chair is not obnoxious looking, but it does not have the classic look of all-wood. I fear that the plastic could possibly leach into my baby's food, since I put foods directly on the tray. And, this chair is most definitely not easy to clean up. When I was considering this purchase, I remember reading that water can get stuck in the tray during clean-up. I do not submerge the tray, rather I sponge it off when a scrubby sponge. Water does sometimes get stuck in there, but I have not noticed any mold growing, and I try to either shake it out or let it dry in an upright position. Other reviews mentioned staining. After food has been sitting on it for a while ~ squash, or tomato sauce, it does tend to temporarily stain. However, I have had good results with scrubbing it off, even after the occasional times when I leave it with food overnight. The tray does scratch, so be careful with cutting food directly on it.
The main thing I do not like about this chair is the seat cushion. It velcros on so that you can take it off and clean it. That's a nice idea, but what tends to happen is that food gets stuck under the cushion. Then when you remove it and try to clean the plastic underneath part, the food gets stuck in the velcro pads on the plastic. Gross! Also, for a busy mom, I wish there were not all these little nooks and crevices for food to get stuck in. I'd like to just wipe it off with a sponge and only rarely take it apart. But there's this big plastic piece that goes in between your baby's legs, and that makes it difficult to clean all of the food out. Also, when you take the seat cushion off to clean, you need to be very careful to only get the top part wet because the bottom part is not waterproof and could trap water.
There's also a 5-point harness which would be nice for a very squiggly baby, but I never use it. The straps are not easy to fully clean, and so I'd rather just have them behind my baby. The bottom part of the harness comes out from the same area as the white plastic piece between the baby's legs. So if you don't buckle them in, they end on sitting on the buckle, which doesn't seem comfortable. Obviously the company would want you to buckle your baby every time, but I feel that the leg piece and tray are enough to hold in my baby. She is not crazy about sitting in the high-chair to begin with, so I will wait to strap her in until she is really moving.
Now, I should mention that we do Baby-Led-Weaning. This means that I put the food on my daughter's tray and let her go to town. For a mom feeding her child purees, these issues with cleaning may not apply. But since 3/4 of the food I give my daughter ends up on the seat and floor, they are issues for me. Other people mentioned this, but I foolishly disregarded it.
So in conclusion: Oxo tot, thanks for creating a nice looking high chair that looks good in my house. I wish in the future that you would improve the quality of construction, and perhaps create a chair that is entirely made of wood, with cushions that do not come off. I understand wanting to be able to take them off to clean them, but if they were permanently fixed, I could clean them without worrying about food getting lodged underneath. Also, please move the bottom harness buckle to under the seat of the chair, so that when not in use, it does not end up underneath my baby's crotch. Thanks!

OXO Tot says:
I'm Kimberly with OXO. Thank you for your review on the OXO Tot Sprout Chair. We take customer feedback very seriously so thank you for your comments and I will be sure to pass them along to the Product Development Team.
I noticed that your review mentions concern about the legs of the chair not being made of wood and I wanted to let you know that the legs are made of an engineered birch plywood that was chosen because it provides strength advantages over solid wood. The grain direction is glued together in an alternating pattern, giving strength to the wood in both directions. Every layer of our wood is made from birch, a premium hardwood known for its strength.
Also, I noticed you mentioned the straps are difficult to clean. You can actually remove these from the chair and toss into the washing machine for a thorough clean!
If you ever have questions about an OXO product please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-545-4411. We do have a Satisfaction Guarantee so if you are not happy with your OXO product for any reason please give our Customer Service Department a call for a repair, replacement or refund.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very surprised that this is an OXO product,
We love OXO products. Most of my kitchen tools and utensils are OXO. We also really like the OXO Tot line - use the spoons, sippy cup, storage containers, dish washer rack etc. from the OXO Tot line and we absolutely love it. Based on our experience with this brand and the positive reviews on Amazon, we bought the OXO Tot High Chair for our daughter. But, we were severely disappointed. The chair looks great but has some serious design flaws:
1) The tray: I knew the tray is not dishwasher safe, and this did not bother me. So, I hand washed the tray. To my surprise, the tray is built with two plastic pieces that have been put together with the help of about 15 screws. And, after a quick wash, I realized that water had gone inside the tray. Now, I hope OXO does not think that I will unscrew the tray, every time I have to clean it?
2) There is a gap between back of the chair and the sides, small enough that my daughter's arm gets stuck in it. We tried about 10 times, and each time, that is what happened. It did not hurt my daughter, but it is kinda weird to see her arm kinda dangling on the side. This seems like bad design as I would think there are others who have also had this problem.
3) The leg separator in the chair is quite big and seems like it will be a problem soon, as the child grows. The manual does say that it can be removed once the tray is not being used (once the child is 3 years old), but is seems like it would be an issue even before that.
I am definitely surprised that this is an OXO product given my experience with the OXO line of products that I have been using for many years now.
Hope this helps.
FYI: We returned the chair and bought the Boon Flair. Too soon to comment on how the Boon High Chair is, but so far we really like it and it seems like a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic highchair - UPDATED,
I bought and compared five highchairs and this was the hands-down winner. My husband was skeptical about spending so much on a chair, but when he saw this chair side by side with the other slightly cheaper chairs he was convinced. Our son was happy sitting in this chair right from the start.
We have been using it for a month now (and it's now cheaper than I paid!)
UPDATED - after two months use there are signs of wear already! See list of cons for details (the pros haven't changed).
- The chair is comfortable and doesn't have distractions (patterns, toys, etc) for our curious 7 month old.
- It is easy to clean.
- It has a footprint the size of a normal dining chair and as such fits nicely at the family table, even with the tray.
- The tray is a decent size and easy to put in and out with one hand if need be. It also comes close to baby, so food is less likely to spill in a gap between baby and tray (this would have been a problem in 3/5 of the chairs we tested: bloom nano, joovy nook and astro).
- It is easy to get baby in and out of the highchair (sounds obvious, but this was a major problem with the astro highchair).
- It seems sturdy and well made, nice materials and looks great in our kitchen!
- Erm, it's cheaper now than when I bought it!
- After two months use there are fine scratches appearing on the arm-rests. This is caused by the tray sliding on and off, it would appear that the plastic on the arms is too soft and the finish on the slider part of the tray must be rough. Not what I'd expected to happen so soon for this price of chair.
That said, I still love the chair and would recommend it to anyone willing to pay $250 for a chair.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Happy we got this chair!,
This review is from: OXO Tot Sprout Chair, Taupe/Birch (Baby Product)
After countless hours of reading reviews (as I am sure you are doing now), it paid off becasue we are SO happy with this high chair!
Our priorities when shopping for a high chair were wood (not a big ugly plastic thing emitting toxins into our home), a chair that would grow with our son to be able to eventually sit at table, and of course a chair that is safe and easy to use/clean.
I love how the footprint of the chair is not large and overbearing in the slightest. It is also very sturdy and solid feeling, feels safe and well made, yet easy to pick up and move from the kitchen to our outside porch. Also like how if we drag the chair a bit, it does not scratch our wood floors.
The 5 point harness is easy getting in and out of, and keeps our "wild man" secure. The bar in between his legs is so helpful for extra safey as I am putting on/ taking off the harness, I don't have to worry about him sliding out of the chair (especially when he is putting up a fuss). He seems very comfortable, with good posture, and happy in the chair.
Clean up is easy. All surfaces can be easily wiped down with a wet sponge and/or spray cleaner, which I do so after every meal to avoid any "staining" as some reviews stated (I have yet to see). Simple!
Love how easy the tray is, both in how smooth it slides and locks, and also the one hand feature is genius! The plastic is all BPA,etc free, and the wood feels very "natural", so hopefully it is not emitting bad toxins in our home. It does not feel "creepy" to touch as a lot of plastics do. Has a better quality look and feel to it. Did not smell when we took it out of the box (also note, putting the chair together was easy- my husband and I did in about 20min)
Another nice thing for parent, is the low step- i use all the time for my resting my feet when leaning in to feed my son. Comfortable.
We have only used it as a high chair so far, but I did try it out as a "toddler chair" to be sure if fit under our dining table, to use when my son is older with no tray, and it fits just fine. Our table is 26.5" high from floor to table underneath, and the chair fits well under it (with the chair in the low position).
We were looking at the Stokke and the Keekaroo and I am so glad we picked this chair. I was at first hesitant about this chair becasue of the plastic and thought it looked "too modern" for our traditonal house. I was so wrong, it looks clean and simple and by no means is a big eye soar or feels cheap plastic. I would say, the only thing I wish OXO would change is to offer more colors in the cushions. Color selections were rather limited for our decor (we have light pine floors), so that is why we went for the most neutral, the taupe, but I would like it if the pine came in something fun other than orange.
I am also so happy we did not go with the Stokke and the Keekaroo because of all the parts needed to convert those chairs for our little guy (we started using when he was 7 months old). Those seat attachements needed for infants just seemed cumbersome. The OXO is good to go as is, not extra stuff to buy and convert! Also like the bigger OXO tray. I also did not like the reviews of the S and K chairs stating "tipping back from my son pushing the table" and "my chid smacking his head on the floor" or even someone "tripping over the protruding legs". Once again, I feel this OXO chair does not have these issues, and is safe, very sturdy, and just plain works!!
Hands down, I would buy this chair again (for our hopefully growing family) and will definitely recomend to friends!

1.0 out of 5 stars Literally melting,
This chair looks great and we expected to keep it for years. But water gets inside the tray. After a year or so of use it stopped snapping closed against the chair, so I unscrewed the tray apart to see if I could fix the mechanism inside. The springs inside had rusted on the ends, and it looks like the disintegrating springs have had some kind of strange reaction upon the plastic inside. The plastic inside the tray is literally melting into a disgusting white goo.
I will see if I can contact oxo to get a new tray, and then never wash it except to sponge off the top. Which is pathetic, but what else is there to do?

OXO Tot Sprout Chair, Taupe/Birch by OXO Tot
