too expensive for what you get
on January 14, 2011
After reading all the reviews of high chairs I decided to get this one. It is a nice highchair but I don't feel it is worth $123.00. I like the material it is made out of and it is easy to wipe down (I have twins and one is a very messy eater), I like the high height adjustment of the chair so the babies are at my eye level, I like the height of the tray (my babies can actually see over the tray not like my old highchair which was a baby trend highchair), I also like the recline feature. What I don't like is when it is folded, it is top heavy and tips forward, there is no place to hang the tray which adds to the top heaviness (it tipped on me twice and I've only had it for an hour), folding the highchair is not the easiest because of the placement of the unlatching machanism (it is on the underside of the A frame area which is already low)... I have only been able to fold it while being behind the highchair. The legs of the chair have a compact fold but the rest of the chair is bulky when folded and when you're dealing with two highchairs I was looking for something a bit more compact. I bought this chair because it can go from the highchair to a booster seat which can be placed onto a chair (which is a very easy task to accomplish since the straps are stored in the base of the chair). I also don't like that the wheels do not lock and I don't like the fact that there are only two wheels on the front of the highchair and the back legs of the highchairs have hard plastic that slides across the floor....I had to keep a foot on the chair the whole time I was feeding because the kicking my baby did cause it to move away from me. If I had to do over again I would have gone with a less expensive high chair and purchased the booster seats when the babies are old enough for them.
UPDATED INFO...I have been using this product for a couple of days now and I have found more that I do not like about it. I do not like the T-bar being attached to the tray...I have folded my babies legs back when putting the tray in place causing them to scream. You cannot see where the T-bar is going until the baby starts to cry because their leg is stuck...you need to be looking under the tray to make sure both legs are where they should be. I also have to keep a foot on the chair when loading and unloading the babies because they roll away. My husband hates these high chairs and said we were ripped off and could not believe the positive comments about this chair. I am a mother to five so this is not my first experience with a high chair and I am half tempted to send them back!
