When new parents ask me “What is one item that you could not live without during baby’s first year” I would always mention the high chair. Both of my children started to use a high chair around 4 months old and have continued to use it well into their 2’s. This is probably one purchase that will receive more use than any other product that you purchase for your baby.
When we purchased our first high chair in 2007, kitchen space was not a concern so we went with the most affordable high chair we could find. After having two children we have started to sing a different tune. My husband and I are constantly pushing around the high chair and we are often moaning about how much longer it would have to sit there. Needless to say, I was super excited about reviewing a SpaceSaver High Chair from Fisher Price.
This was our first experience with a space saving high chair and I was curious how it would work with our kitchen chairs that have rounded backs. Installation was a breeze. Within minutes, the SpaceSaver High Chair quickly buckled around the back and underneath the chair, much like a typical booster seat.
The backside of the high chair features a seat reclining lever. With this lever you can recline the high chair into one of three positions, this feature will allow even your littlest one to sit at the table with you and be apart of the family.
The safety features are one of my top “must have” high chair features. My 20 month old thinks that she is a monkey and if we do not harness her into the high chair, with a quick turn of the back she will instantly wiggle herself to a sitting position on the high chair tray. The SpaceSaver High Chair from Fisher Price includes a 3 point harness, with optional shoulder straps included for extra security.
There are three height adjustments to accommodate almost any table. I placed the SpaceSaver high chair into the highest setting and pushed Andrea right up to the table, this is something her older high chair could not do.
Our dog is even happier now as she can hide under the table while Andrea eats. I guess it is easier to keep a watch out for droppings when the big people can’t see you under the table
Built right into the tray is a “squeeze in” button, this allows you to easily remove the high chair tray with one hand. You don’t understand HOW helpful that is when you have baby in one arm and only one hand to take the tray off. If you have both hands available, there are two push in buttons on each side of the tray to easily remove the tray that way as well.
Here are some other great features of the SpaceSaver High Chair from Fisher Price:
- Dishwasher safe tray
- Full Sized seat pad that is spill resistant and machine washable
- Converts into a booster seat for toddlers who have outgrown the high chair
- Three position Recline
- Three position Height adjustment
- Built in Cup Holders on tray
High Chairs are great for bringing little babies to the table, for feeding your baby and toddler, for secure entertainment with a toy when you need a “hands free” moment, and more. The SpaceSaver High Chair has taken this product to a new level of functionality by transforming it into a toddler booster seat all by simply removing the back of the high chair and tray. This isn’t something you will find with a traditional high chair.
There isn’t a day when the high chair is not used and I wish that we would have tried the SpaceSaver High Chair sooner than we did. Not only is it small and compact, it will be easy to store away for company and it will be perfect to travel with when going to friends and family’s homes.
