Very flimsy

I was hoping for a good deal and I purchased this product but I was wrong. This highchair is a very flimsy and I would feel uncomfortable putting my baby in the seat. I promptly returned this product after putting it together. Don’t waste your time with this high chair, spend a little bit more money and get a better product.

Comparison between the First Years Deluxe Seat and the Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Seat

I recently purchased the Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Booster Seat (for $26 dollars from Amazon). The same weekend, my mother purchased The First Years Deluxe Reclining Feeding Seat for $39.99 from Target. This is my comparison of the two chairs.The Fisher-Price chair (I bought the red/white version) was VERY easy to assemble. I didn’t need to read directions. I just put it together very quickly and logically. (Whew, that was easy!) The straps came attached to the chair. It seems secure and it is very easy to clean. There are no nooks and crannies! The tray has a lid, which is pretty cool. You can actually take the food tray off, put the lid on it, and put it in the refrigerator! (Cool!) My 18 lb 7 month old seems to like the chair. Plus, the price was very nice!The First Years Deluxe Seat was not easy to put together. I had to refer to the directions. It took me a good 20 minutes. The directions were a bit confusing too (and I like to think that I’m pretty smart!). The straps had to be threaded through some little holes on the chair to attach them. They didn’t seem very secure. A small child could easily remove them, maybe even a toddler. After it was all together, it seemed like it was going to be ok. It secured to the chair and seems pretty easy to clean (but not as easy as the Fisher-Price chair). It does recline, but this isn’t a feature that I need as my son sits up very well on his own and won’t lay back in the chair. He seems comfy in the chair. It has a 5 point harness, but I felt like it was a bit of overkill. I don’t plan on leaving him in the chair unsupervised.For my use, the Fisher Price chair is a much better deal. It is easier to put together and clean and has some features that I like.

Great Multi Function Chair

I found that this high chair is great for an infant baby to toddler especially feeding baby and then being able to change to a booster seat. Tray is eas to remove or put on. The straps are easily adjustable and great for a girl or boy. Worth every penny

crap

This high chair is CRAP. It isnt safe by all means the sides dont go up far enough for my son so he can fall off the sides. The tray breaks and dosnt snap in correctly ANY way to put it in. The back seat is all crap because its almost impossible to adjust for different sizes. I HATE this high chair and I will NEVER buy one again or refer it to anyone.

not bad

this little seat is not bad for the money. the quality of firmness in the plastic needs a little upgrading but other then that its pretty good. my grandgirl is only 4 months and already fits in it pretty snuggly and she is not a huge baby. it is nice to have it attached to a regular chair at the table instead of dragging out a big bulky highchair. easy to clean too. gave it a four star….not perfect but not a waste of money either.

Cheaply made. Get the Fisher Price one instead

This seat is very small, chintzy, and insubstantial – at 4 months, my big boy looked like he was going to fall out of it. The seat covering is made of thin plastic, and the tray is very small. I returned it because our child wouldn’t have lasted more than a few weeks in it, and he wasn’t even ready for solids yet! It is the cheapest thing you can get, and it will convert to a toddler seat so theoretically it is good value. That said, I’m not sure a toddler would fit in it and I’m so glad I returned it, because instead I purchased something much better.I strongly recommend spending $10 more and getting the Fisher Price Spacesaver ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005IWM99K/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_46) which has a larger tray, a much nicer fabric cover, and a larger frame better suited for bigger babies. It just feels MUCH more expensive and high quality. Splurge for the better option.

worst baby chair ever Do not buy!!

I got this chair for my boy when he was only about a month old so I didn’t try it right away but it did look cheap and way too much plastic exposed. I started putting my baby in it when he was 3 months old and this chair is horrible the back is completely flat which lets the baby slide from side to side and down, the cover is way too thin not even soft enough to let the baby sit there for more then a few minutes. The sliding and the cheap cover turned out to not even be the worst part when my baby began eating solids this chair is even worse since the straps are hanging in from of the baby and he prefers to eat those instead of the food! I wish we didn’t throw the box right away I would’ve retuned it.

Easy to assemble and we take it with us when we travel!

Originally we wants to get a high chair, but this turned out to be a VERY GOOD choice! In fact it’s so easy to assemble, we’ve taken it along with us to long trip when we stayed at friend’s place, so we didn’t have to hold our LO all the time. This is definitely the right item for us. High recommended.

Great value, pros outweight the cons

Our son is 7.5 months, but we’ve been using this seat since he was about 6 weeks old. We started in the most reclining position, just for a few minutes at a time. After a few weeks, we started sitting him in it and giving him toys to play with while we were eating dinner, and also moved it to the medium sitting position. Around 5 months we gave him a sippy cup and spoon to play with while we ate. By this time, we was about ready to start sitting on his own, so we moved the seat to the upright position.Pros:1. I’ve really liked the flexibility of the sitting position, and that we’ve already been able to use this seat for 6 months. We’ll still be able to use it a bit longer, too.2. Let’s face it, babies are messy little creatures, and the seat cover and straps get dirty ALL the time. They are all easily removable and washable. I hang them up after going through the washer, and they are completely dry overnight. I’ve washed them quite a few times at this point, and they still look like new, despite being slathered in avocados, prunes, and sweet potatoes.3. This chair is both flexible and compact. I like that I can use it in a chair or by setting it on the coffee table.Cons:1. The tray has a depressed area for a cup holder, but none of our training cups with handles fit in it.2. The seat has feet that I think are supposed to keep the seat from sliding around on slippery surfaces, but they don’t work.3. While we do have some time left with this seat, there is no way that it will work up to four years.4. Maybe it’s our table and chairs, but this doesn’t pull up under the table at all. The sides of the feeding seat are too high to fit. We use theYummiGo Brown / Light Blue All-in-one Portable Booster seat/high chairwhen we want to pull baby up to the table with us.Really, for the price, this has been an excellent value, even baby only uses it for a year or so. We’ll put it in the closet and save it for the next kid.

Does the job

I was having a hard time deciding on a good "high chair" booster seat for my child. I chose this one because it could recline, and the back could be removed to make it into a booster. Now that I have it, I don’t hate it, but I think if I could have actually compared this and another in person, I would have chosen the other.Its a little flimsy. The 5 point harness, as others have pointed out, is overkill. The tray, while described as "full size," isn’t. I see now that being able to remove the back is pointless, because it’s still a booster seat with it on. The "cover" isn’t held on very well, so my son is able to pull on it so that it’s almost off. The recline option, for a child that can sit up on his own, is pointless.It’s not terrible, but it’s not great either.

Great space saving seat

We bought this seat as we didn’t want one of those large, ugly high chairs. This fit our criteria perfectly! It sits great on one of our dining room chairs with no issues. It was easy to put together and install on the chair (2 straps hold it in place). The tray is super easy to attach and take off and is easy to clean. I emailed the company and they confirmed it is BPA free and PVC free which was a large deciding factor for us. The design of the material is cute, I think it would work well for a boy or girl. The material is easy to wipe down after a messy meal time. The straps are a light gray so it does show food staining and they are not as easy to clean up (one of the straps on ours is now stained with sweet potatoes!). That doesn’t bother me though. My 6 month old son weighs 21 lbs and has a lot of room to grow into this seat! We haven’t tested out the reclining levels much, but with our brief experience I think this seat would work well for placing a much younger baby. Just remember to always feed your baby in the upright position to avoid choking!
