Pros:Value for money. Three dishwasher-friendly trays. Easy to strip for thorough cleaning.
Cons:The brake handles for the wheels are hard to access and not durable
The Bottom Line: If you want a good high chair without unnecessary bells and whistles, this is a solid choice.
We bought this high chair when baby was 6 months and are still happily using it at 19 months. It worked just as well at 6 months as it does more than a year later and despite constant use and abuse (it's been vomited over more times than we care to remember) it looks like new.
Recommend this product?
i. Adjustable seat positions: when baby was an infant, reclining worked well for milk bottles
ii. plastic/vinyl: maybe lacking in aesthetics but it's easy to clean and has been in the washing machine many, many times and not faded
iii. the first time you strip the chair to wash the vinyl you may have to pry open the slots in the plastic molding to get the straps out, but once pried wider it's become a breeze to get the vinyl off.
iv. you have 2 options of removing the tray - either using just one hand and pushing the handle in the center front (handy when holding baby) or, even easier, pushing both handles on the side of the tray. Both work well.
v. The blue and white pattern is nice, does not fade, and does not immediately show off dirt. Neutral and pleasant.
vi. LOVE the 3 trays that fit in the dishwasher. Three allows us to always have a clean tray ready for use while two are in the dishwasher. Fit well in the bottom tray of the dishwasher.
vii. The baby feels more involved perching in his high chair. Good view over what's going on at the dining table and he gets to try out what we are eating. At 19 months he climbs on the chair by himself (if the tray is not attached) and still seems content sitting in it. At a recent party with mainly grown-ups and lots of noise baby was very content to be sitting in his own private higher up area (rather than trying to navigate through a forest of adult knees)
viii. If need to move the high chair this is easy with and w/o the baby in the chair as it has four wheels.
ix. Good price for what you get. With a coupon at Target we paid around $60. Considering we've used it over a year, it's been very worth it (less than 5$ per month to eat in peace).
The one con is that Fisher Price needs to redesign the brake levers. They are hard to reach - either you go on hands and knees or have to try to manipulate them with your feet. And they loose their ability to brake rather quickly.
We also have a Fisher Price booster chair but we tend to use this more for eating out. I don't associate Fisher Price with quality - their QC seems to vary a lot - but in this case we can wholeheartedly recommend their high chair. The chair is still in very good condition and if we were to have another baby we would choose to reuse this high chair.
