Pros:Great reclining seat, seat cover easy to remove, tray removes easily, 5 pt harness, rolls.
Cons:Tray comes off readily by baby pushing up, toy slots a menace for us!
The Bottom Line: Great for infants - safe, easy to use. Problems occur when baby reaches toddler age - can throw tray on floor - comes off very very easily from underneath!
If you have done any research on high chairs, you know all the great features of this chair - that's why I bought it! Roller wheels w/ locks, one hand release tray, snap on dinner trays that go in the dishwasher, washable seat cover, 5 point harness, reclining chair back. I spent HOURS reviewing other persons opinions on high chairs! BUT, I never read a review that stated this problem: AT AGE 16 MONTHS, OUR BABY STARTED THROWING THE TRAY ON THE FLOOR! The way the tray connects on this high chair allows a child to slip his hands underneath on each side and push up on the place the tray connects to the chair - EASY to release the tray and toss it on the floor! I have never written a review on a product before but felt I owe it to all others to benefit from this experience. We paid enough for this chair that we hoped it would work at least until we didn't need it anymore for our only child - now we have to go buy another! Last night was the pits - a dining room full of company and PLOP! goes the tray on the floor w/ broccoli, mashed potatoes, meat...you get the picture. Our baby is now 20 months old - I've been watching this tray for 4 months now (to try to CATCH it when he throws it off!) and I am through - it is gone tomorrow!!! Up until 16 months it was great - I didn't have any troubles w/ releasing the tray w/ one hand, (whereas others say it is too heavy - I'm small to medium build female). Oh - the other problem we have had for about 8 months is that we had to remove the toys long ago (they got flipped into just one too many trays of food!) - where toys connect is a hole about 1 1/2 inches wide on each side of the tray. Well, our little boy thinks it's fun to slip his baby-sized forks and spoons through the hole so they fall to the floor - over and over and over and over - more fun than eating! I'd say go for a model WITHOUT TOYS to avoid this problem (really fun to clean these slots out, ha ha!). Try disconnecting the tray from underneath yourself in the store before buying this model - you will picture exactly what has happened to us.
