When Dex first started weaning, I gave no thought to the type of high chair we wanted and bought one of the first ones I found on Amazon. It was okay but I found it difficult to clean and I ended up having to cut out the straps because they were so filthy.
At around eleven months of age, Dex started trying to stand up in it, and without the straps, the thing had become absolutely perilous so I decided to buy a new high chair. My mother-in-law had borrowed a Joie Mimzy Snacker from a friend and when I saw it in action, I decided it was absolutely perfect for use at home as well.
The chair retails for around £50 which is a fantastic price considering the quality of the brand and the range of features it has. It promises to grow with your child and so is suitable from 6 months until the age of three. It comes with a large three positional tray with cup holder, a seat which reclines equipped with a removable, wipable seat pad, a footrest and large storage basket which is positioned beneath the high chair.
What We Love
- The highchair can be quickly folded one-handed so it takes up less room in an already overcrowded kitchen/lounge. The tray can be stored on the highchair’s legs meaning even more space is saved.
- The tray is really big which means less food falls beneath it onto his lap and it’s less likely that elbows will inadvertently drop food on the floor. The cupholder on the tray means there’s less chance of the cup being thrown off the edge too. (Although Dex is totally at that stage where he is trying to assess what gravity is)
- The high chair comes with a large net basket, perfect for storing bibs, cups and plates and saving me have to run around the flat looking for a clean bib.
- The wipesble seat cover is a cinch to keep clean (I use a mixture of a handheld vacuum, a damp cloth and a bit of kitchen spray) however, not much mess is made anyway due to the size of the tray (see above.)
I absolutely love this high chair and so does Dex. He seems so much more comfortable and is happy spending a significant amount of time in it playing as well as eating. I love how compact it is when folded and the designs are just so pretty. What’s more the price is just phenomenal.
