Looks nice but very difficult to clean.
on 21 July 2017
I've had this highchair for 15 months and overall I am pretty disappointed with it.
To start with the good points, I think it looks good. It's been a decent size for my daughter, she's not big but has never been too small for it even when little. The tray is large and doesn't stain which is great (even tomato etc comes off after a few days).
The bad though is that it's incredibly tricky to clean. Let's face it, food goes everywhere when feeding a small child and I now would put ease of cleaning at the top of my list of priorities for a highchair. The seat pads are annoying, they both accumulate food underneath them. When you remove them, the velcro bits (who thought that was a good idea) are impossible to clean. Its also tricky to clean the surface of the bottom pad without taking it out as there are crevices on each side that make it tricky to get the cloth in. The back pad is ok to clean the front of, but again food gets behind it and when I try and remove it the Velcro pads come unstuck rather than the Velcro detaching. Finally the straps get filthy and are again tricky to clean. I've taken them out and washed them, but they still smell vile after 15 months of use.
Other things that are irritating is that it's difficult to strap my daughter in as the middle clip is always underneath her. I used to be able to hook it up into the table, but that only works if it's pushed all the way in. She's now too big to do that so I spend ages fishing around for it.
I currently wish I hadn't bought it and it's a pretty expensive mistake.
