These chairs are so well made! I was surprised by how sturdy and well built they are. We bought two. One for our 18 month old and one for our three year old. They are the perfect size for them. I'm sure they will tear them apart but will last longer than the last chair we bought them. I'm thrilled at the vinyl option. Easy to clean! The recline is so easy. They both figured it out on their own and the recline and close them all day long. They just pull the feet out and push them in. The movement is very smooth. I feel bad for the person who had the uneven feet. Both ours are perfectly level. I was worried when I read that review but am so please at this purchase!!!
