Fisher Price High Chair

You may have seen that we have been testing some lovely Fisher Price toys recently, and we have been very impressed with them all.  Well we have also been sent their new Evolve high chair and it has really been put to the test with our little Archie and some baby led weaning.

The high chair was really simple to put together, and I managed it with only a toddler to help out (or hinder).  The height is adjustable via small buttons on the feet, so the high chair is always the right height for the table.  

The tray is detatchable and easy to clean, and the orange back panel is also easy to remove and can be stuck through the washing machine (on a cold hand wash cycle) which is very useful as my little man causes quite a mess! We have been using the chair for a few weeks and the orange panel has been washed 3 times before these photos were taken - it scrubs up pretty well!  There is no recline on this chair but the seat cushion keeps baby in a great position and as it is not advised to start weaning until they can sit unaided it isn't really an issue.

This high chair is really easy to clean which I have realised is actually my top priority when searching for baby gear.  With the seat pad removed, it can be wiped down and there are no crevices for food to get stuck in.  

The seat has a 5 point harness for strapping your little person in, but I have to admit to being really lazy at using it as I know that Archie doesn't even attempt to escape, so I find it very useful that the tray has a support between the legs to stop the little one sliding through.

What I also love about this seat is that it grows with your child.  The seat can be removed and used as a booster seat on a normal dining chair.  The orange cover is removed and the high back also comes off to create the perfect boost for a toddler.  This change does involve a screwdriver and is not one we have attempted yet but I will be doing an update in a couple of months to show you how the seat copes with a toddler.

I do find that even folded, the high chair is rather bulky.  This isn't a problem as we use it several times a day but if you are short on space then do have a think.

The highchair retails at around £80 which I think is a reasonable price considering that the seat grows with your baby. It is an investment and the chair seems good quality so I think it would certainly last well.
