Yes, this is the same simple high chair you see in restaurants, about 20″ wide and long. That’s much less than a standard high chair with a 30″+ footprint. Here’s an overview:
What We Liked
• All wood. If you are tired of plastic high chairs, this one is for you.
• Nothing fancy. Expensive high chairs have all sorts of extra frills (do you really need six height adjustments?)—this chair is for those who want to keep things simple.
• Easy assembly. This chair ships unassembled, but it is easy to assemble with an included allen wrench.
• Three colors. This comes comes in mahogany, walnut and natural finishes.
• Affordable. Yeah, those fancy high chairs from Scandinavia run over four hundred bucks! But why? This gets the job done without a second mortgage on the house.
What Needs Work
• No tray. This high chair works best when you pull it up to a standard-size table—but there is no tray to contain any spills. On the plus side, you are including baby at the table . . . and that is the long term goal anyway.
• Dents/scratches. Take care removing it from the box, as the wood can scratch or dent.
• No wheels. This high chair does not have any wheels—if you drag it across a kitchen, it could damage flooring surfaces.
• Basic three-point harness. We prefer a five-point harness to keep babies from wiggling out of a high chair. You can purchase a five-point harness separately. If you chose to just use the three-point harness, supervise your baby very closely at all times when in the chair!
