great for traveling with a one year old
on August 21, 2009
I packed this in my giant suitcase when going to Europe with my one year old and was very glad to have done so. My family in Europe did not have a high chair and the type that was available in restaurants (in the rare restaurants where there was a high chair) was for a larger child. My one year old child was crawling and climbing so being placed in an average size toddler high chair was an opportunity for him to stand in it. The high chairs did not have straps in most cases. When my husband and I were in a restaurant while sight seeing with our toddler we kept him in the Mclaren umbrella stroller but if we wanted to enjoy a less stressful dinner we brought our booster chair to the hotel restaurant where we stayed. The straps went around any chair so we did not have any problems securing it safely. This was also a nice convenience when visiting family since our child was able to sit at the family table with everyone and be entertained by them as much as they were by him, and everyone was able to eat instead of one adult bounding him on their knee while navigating food with one hand. Last and not least, since it cost us $15 we knew that if we bought too much junk and just could not fit it in the luggage we could leave it in Europe without guilt.
