Give your child a boost with a new high chair

Which? tests the things you can't tell just by looking at a high chair in the shops, including the strength and stability of every high chair, ensuring it's as safe and as durable as it should be to hold your little one for mealtimes and playtime.

  • We carry out more than 35 different safety and durability tests, checking for finger traps and tipping hazards, sturdy locking mechanisms and strong trays to keep baby secure.
  • We smear each high chair with bolognese and sprinkle them with crumbs to find all the places where food can hide, and reveal those that are quick and easy to clean.
  • And we weed out the high chairs that are too heavy and bulky to move about quickly and easily.
