  • CAUTION ~ The 3-in1 Booster Seat May Cause Baby to Fall Flat on His Face!

    Jul 9, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Portable. Converts into a booster seat. Inexpensive. Lightweight.
    Cons: Needs re-designing. Can be DANGEROUS!

    Summary: Do you have a baby? Well, then you know that a highchair will be in your future. Did you know that a portable highchair could be just as useful as the main highchair in your home? If you already know that, than you’re one step ahead of me. ... read more

    Sep 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to assemble and clean! Can seat child at table, at home or away!
    Cons: The tray may be pushed off by the child.

    Summary: I bought my first First years 3-in-1 Booster Seat five years ago for my son. More recently, a few months ago to be exact, I bought two more. Let me regress a bit if you will. When my son began to eat solids, I was feeding him in his infant ca ... read more

  • Good, but a couple annoying short comings *update*

    Feb 27, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, durable plastic, dishwasher safe
    Cons: Crevices at the joints where food can drop; skinny straps

    Summary: Cost = A ($19.99); Style = B-; durability = A; Overall ease = B-; Cleaning = A (dishwasher); {updated 3/16/03} The "3-in-1" is define as: High-chair alternative as it provides a tray, but sits in a regular dining chair; a booster seat used ... read more

  • Is your child aggressive/strong?

    Dec 16, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, collapsible, doesn't consume much space, (fairly) easy to clean
    Cons: Instability if toddler is aggressive/strong

    Summary: This seat is great - good for travelling - collapsible, light, etc. I'm sure the other reviews go into detail on all that so I won't reiterate the advantages of the seat. Disadvantage: When our toddler was less than 8 months old, we ... read more

  • I'd rather have something with EASE

    Sep 13, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: folds compactly, plenty of seat and chair belts, tray, dishwasher safe
    Cons: pain to clean, adjustability a joke

    Summary: This can be a nice item, we used it for over a year and it did serve it's purpose but I prefer something that can easily be wiped clean. This item would be a great alternative to a high chair for a child who can sit up unassisted. Since it ... read more

  • Not too bad

    May 31, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Portable, Easy to Store
    Cons: Difficulty getting straps in initially and doesn't fit on all chairs

    Summary: The First Years 3-in-1 Booster Seat is a gift I received at my baby shower. We had a hard time getting it assembled, once we were ready to put the straps in we had even more problems. Two of the clips had to be forced through which ended up ... read more

  • Almost ideal

    Mar 21, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Far cheaper and more compact than regular highchairs, easy to clean
    Cons: Straps too short, tray table can be unstable, doesn't fold easily

    Summary: I really loved this seat when I first bought it, and congratulated myself for saving significant money and space by choosing it over an expensive and bulky highchair. Eight months later, I would still recommend it, but with several big caveats. ... read more

    Pros: Light Weight, Durable, Colorful. Easy Clean Up, Inexpensive. Multiple uses...
    Cons: Can let some food items slip to the floor...

    Summary: Does anyone remember that little jingle that Atari put out (quite) a few years ago? No, not the 'Have you played Atari today?' jingle - the other one. Come on, you remember... Under $50 bucks? The fun is back, oh yes-sir-ee, it's ... read more

  • First Years 3-in-one: Great at home or on the go

    Oct 4, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: inexpensive, portable, easy to store
    Cons: hard to clean

    Summary: We chose to get a booster seat instead of a high chair because, frankly, we didn't want yet another gigantic piece of plastic baby furniture taking up precious real estate in our small kitchen. We could not have made a better choice than the First Years ... read more

  • Jettison this booster!

    Aug 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light-weight, adjustable and portable
    Cons: falls apart easily and can be confusing to set up

    Summary: The First Years Portable 3-in-1 Booster Seat is hardly the best booster on the market. The fact that is lightweight and portable does not make up for the fact that it is very difficult put together and then setup each time your toddler needs to use the ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight, easily goes through the dishwasher
    Cons: Collapses easily

    Summary: We purchased this seat when my second daughter was born, my older daughter was 14months old then, and we started using this for her as a secondary high chair. It was really nice when we ate out at restaurants etc. Eventually when the baby grew ... read more

  • I Like this Booster Seat

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy chair, very easy to clean, portable
    Cons: Tray is a little flimsy

    Summary: When my son was old enough to come out of his high chair we needed to get him a booster seat. We picked this seat for several reasons. First of all the chair is made out of good quality plastic. It comes in the box in several pieces to put ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: dishwasher safe, adjustable, durable, 2 color choices.
    Cons: may not fit all chairs, small tray, seatbelt for child could be wider, no padding.

    Summary: How could the highchair become homeless you ask? Well after becoming very tired of my daughter being able to climb out of every type of highchair every made and the 'fun job' of cleaning them, to put it bluntly mommy got fed up! ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use and clean. Affordable.
    Cons: Loose strap that connects to chair.

    Summary: What a great find! I found this chair in a garage sale a while before my son was ready to get out of the highchair. Thinking ahead, I went and got it. Now, I am so glad that I did! My son loves it! He can get up in HIS chair all by himself, ... read more

    Cons: I really can't think of any!!!

    Summary: Okay now I had the same choice as every other new parent out there...what high chair to buy??? There are so many brands and types, what a difficult choice right??? Wrong it was an easy one for me. I thought about it for a while before she was ready to ... read more

  • A Must Have

    Dec 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: fits snug
    Cons: doesn't fold up

    Summary: This is a great seat to have-especially to keep at each grandma's! It is light weight, very colorful, and fits snug in seats. It can be tricky to tighten, but once you get it done, it is worth it. The tray fits snug and doesn't allow for your child to ... read more

  • Good Substitute for a High Chair

    Dec 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cheaper and handier than high chair, easy to clean
    Cons: very slippery seating surface

    Summary: I bought this chair two years ago instead of a high chair. We have a small house and really didn't need to take up any more floor space than necessary. Two years later it is still good as new with heavy use. We used it on top of the table for ... read more

  • Buy this and you won't need a high chair!

    Nov 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, portable, easy in/out yet still secure
    Cons: No-frills straps, tricky crevices for cleaning (at least it's dishwasher-safe)

    Summary: Having spent $70+ on the top-of-the-line Peg Perego high chair, I shelled out a few extra dollars for this booster, thinking that it would be good just for visiting family and friends with my 1-year-old. This little seat is a liberator. It ... read more

    Nov 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: dishwasher safe, portable, fully adjustable, raised edge on tray
    Cons: straps can be a bit tricky the first time

    Summary: I have a two year old son and we eat out fairly often. That is not always a good combination. Many restaurants run out of high chairs on weekends, have high chairs with broken seat-belts, or simply have the grungiest, nastiest, filthiest high chairs you ... read more

  • Must have baby gadget

    Nov 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Tons of uses
    Cons: Nothing comes to mind

    Summary: With all the gadgets and items available for today's baby, it is hard to determine what you really need and what is just too much. This booster seat is a great thing to have. You will get a lot of use out of it and your money's worth. We have 2 small ... read more
