Product Description

Color: Black

Have Lobster at the Table Everyday!

This lightweight, quick-clamping portable highchair brings more to the table. Stylish, strong & safe. There’ll be no wriggling out of this one! The lobster gives you freedom from grubby cafe highchairs. Carry bag and crumb catching food tray included (dishwasher safe)! Unbelievably lightweight, flat-packing portability & quick-smart clip-on clamping to most tables.

Super Safe

Smaller children often have trouble sitting securely in most regular sized highchairs. The 5-point safety harness with padded straps means even the smallest and wriggliest child will be secure. Safety certified for children 6 months to 3 years old with a max weight of 37lbs.

Light and Compact Portability

Weighing in at only 3.9 lbs, the lobster weighs less than the baby and is easy to take everywhere! Seat flattens and handles turn inwards for the ultimate in space saving storage. Between use, keep it on a hook, underneath the breakfast bench, in a drawer, in your stroller gear tray or in the car trunk.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will wipe right off the easy wipe clean fabric, or simply slide the seat out of the frame and handwash.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit

The comfy padded shoulder straps and 5-point safety harness prevent any kid from wiggling through! Padded waist and crotch strap ensures even small children cannot slip under the table.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit

The wide food tray slides securely under the clamp grips, to protect the table surface and it's dishwasher safe! Every lobster comes in a compact, custom-fitted carrybag so that it can travel anywhere you need it too.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit

Hygienic alternative to grubby restaurant highchairs! Young ones will appreciate the familiarity of the lobster wherever they go, and parents will appreciate the easy clean fabric.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit

Soft and durable fabric for ultimate comfort. Robust polyester fabric seat is easy to wipe clean and removable for machine washing.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit

Lightweight - only 3.9lbs. Made with a strong aluminum steel frame. This sturdy, resilient frame will continue to look good, even with everyday use. Curved to contour a child’s body.

They are sturdy and easy to clean as well.
I really like the fact that it folds so compactly and comes with its own carrying bag.
L. Hull
The other issue is it only works on tables without a lip.

We love how compact this travel highchair is. We can put it in the basket of our stroller and whip it out as needed; it could probably even fit in a regular backpack or a very large diaper bag. The foldaway design is genius and we like the fact that it comes with/fits in its own small bag. We sold our Chicco 360 seat after getting this one, since this one is so much more portable.

That said, the two downsides to this otherwise very nicely-designed product are:

1) The included tray doesn't lock to the seat. While it's GREAT that a tray was even included, we would love if it locked into place with the seat so our little one couldn't push it out and overturn/fling it.

2) Because the way it connects to the table are basically two heavy duty clamps, it only works on tables without a lip. We've found we're able to use it only 50% of the time when dining out due to this, plus the regular restrictions when using a hook-on chair (not on a tippy pedestal table, etc.). This is a pretty big downer because not being able to use it in so many instances defeats the purpose of having it and the convenience of its small size.

After owning this for over a month I haven't been able to get much use out of it. Like the other reviews said, it doesn't work everywhere. This seat has more of a clamp than a hook so if the table has a lip it won't fit around it. so far I've only been able to use it about 40% of the time. The tray is also mostly useless. It doesn't clip into the seat. It just kind of sits in between the clamps. My 15 month old knows this so I stopped using the tray to just avoid having to pick up the tray and the food that was on it off the floor.
It does have some upgrades over the Phil & Teds Metoo chair. Extra padding and the storage bag with handle (although a very short handle) are a plus. I had a Metoo for a couple of years and have no complaints. After it was stolen I decided to hold off and wait for this one to come out. But in my opinion you might as well get the Metoo and save a bit of cash.

I agree with the other reviewers re: the limited use of the phil&ted's Lobster Highchair given that it's a clamp design and won't work with tables with lips or tables that are too thin (like the kind you find at Chinese banquet halls where they place a large round table top over their smaller table to create a larger table). I suppose this is for safety reasons, but still, it does limit the use of the chair. I really like the fact that it folds so compactly and comes with its own carrying bag. Also, the tray is an added bonus, though as other reviewers have mentioned, it doesn't clip on to the chair so it's fairly easy to remove by the kid, which defeats the purpose IMHO.

I'll focus on few things that it appears no one else has mentioned:
1) The seat is quite deep. I guess this is good because it means it has room to grow with the child, but we use it on our 11-month old, who is in the 75th percentile in height and he sits REALLY low in the chair. The first few times we used it, he did not like it at all as it seemed to be sunken in the chair. We have since placed a thick blanket in the bottom of the seat for him to elevate him, and that has helped.
2) There is virtually no space between the child and the table, which again, might be for safety reasons, but it makes the child's chest butt up against the edge of the table, which doesn't seem particularly comfortable to me. Luckily, we have a fairly skinny child so he fits fine in the chair, but I imagine that if you had a chubbier kid, this might be a bigger issue for you.
3) Like the other reviewer said, I wish the bag was zippered. However, to add to that, I also wish the bag was just slightly bigger so that it wouldn't be such a snug/tight fit when trying to put the chair back in it. It cant be a bit of a struggle.

Have you ever been to a restaurant with a toddler? I have. The question is.. have you ever been to a restaurant with a toddler and felt like giving up on life and crawling back to your dank dark apartment and never leaving again? Because I have been there too. My toddler is the kind of child who wants all the attention at all times. She wants to get into everything and never let me do what I want to do.. even if what I want to do is the simple task of "eating." Do you remember "eating?" Like before children? Because to me it seemed like this blissful fairy tale that never actually existed but I had created in my mind to help me get through the dark times.

Then I bought the lobster chair. Red. Beautiful. Sexy even. It's got a soft, luxurious seat and claws that clamp so hard, aint nobody falling off that table. Trust me. I tested it myself. I do love my little gremlin, don't get me wrong, I want her safe. I just want to eat too.

The first time we took this to a restaurant it was like a miracle. Not only did she actually SIT in it.. she liked it. She sat in it swinging her legs and eating rice and smiling and never wanted out of it like she did with all those stupid wooden pieces of crap they call high chairs at most restaurants. I was so happy I almost cried. I actually got to eat at the same time as my husband and didn't have to wrestle an unruly demon child who wanted to say "hi" to every stranger at every table and then go back again for a second round of that.

If you're on the fence about this chair... do yourself a favor and take the leap. Worth every penny. I will never go back. I keep this in my trunk and feel panicky if I ever take a different car and forget it. It's a priceless tool that every parent should have.
