Convenient, versatile, high-quality
I received this highchair about two weeks ago and have been using it for my five-month-old son. Even though he is not using it to eat solid food yet, he loves sitting in it and being at the same height as the rest of the family. It is comfortable for him and easy to roll around the kitchen, so he can watch me make dinner, etc. It's great to have another option for him to sit in and play with little toys or recline to rest or take a bottle. I have two older children, and for them I had a highchair that straps onto one of my kitchen chairs. I love that this high chair has that option once my baby gets a little older. The versatility and options of this highchair can't be beat. The high chair was easy to put together, although some of the directions were little vague. Like other Chico products I have, this highchair feels high-quality. The product is sturdy, and the connection points fit together securely and easily. Each adjustment (seat recline, height, arm rest, etc) locks easily into position with a nice "click" to know you've made the proper change. The straps also fit well and click together nicely. It is easy to get the baby in and out of the high chair. Also, the wheels rolls smoothly and I have no concern of them damaging my hardwood floors. The material is a plastic vinyl that will be easy to clean. The zipper feature to remove the top, softer portion of the padding seems unnecessary. It is a neat looking design, but I imagine that food may get caught in the zipper area and/or my son my be tempted to play with the zipper when he is a bit older. Also, if the top portion is removed when using it as a booster, then the edge of the padding is left as the teeth of the zipper, which seems strange. It is convenient that tray stores in the back of the highchair, especially since we are not using it much right now. However the connection point is a little tricky and sometimes takes a couple of tries to actually get the tray to stay. A minor complaint and not a critical feature, in my opinion. Overall a great product and I'm sure that it will be useful for each stage as my son grows.
