For some reason, high chair makers must think all parents live in palatial kitchens with acres of space—what else explains large high chairs that look have the same wingspan of moon landers?
If that isn’t your kitchen, we have high chair solutions that make the best of small spaces. We hand-tested 13 solutions to find the best high chair for small spaces—the winner is the Fisher-Price SpaceSaver High Chair. Here’s why:
What We Liked
• Full features, half the space. The SpaceSaver’s chair works much like a full-size high chair: two seat recline positions, five-position height adjustment, nice chair pad, etc. What’s missing? The large base—and that’s a good thing. This high chair just straps on a regular kitchen chair, saving you the large footprint of a regular high chair.
• Dishwasher-safe. You can pop the entire thing (tray, tray insert, seat and seat back) in the dishwasher.
• Pad and harness are machine washable.
• Assembly is easy. In our tests, we could assemble this chair in under 5 minutes.
What Needs Work
• Doesn’t easily store away. Once you strap the SpaceSaver to a chair, you can’t slide that chair under a kitchen table. So this isn’t a solution if you prefer a high chair to slip out of sight when unused.
• Nooks can be hard to clean. This high chair has various nooks and seams in the plastic that are food magnets. And that was no fun to clean. On the plus side, you can throw the whole thing in a dishwasher.
