A fantastic chair!
A fantastic chair which our little boy loves! Why worry about having to fold it away when its looks so good? Well made, well designed, the higher price is well worth it and I would recommend it highly!
An armchair for babies
We’ve owned an Oxo Tot chair for almost a year now. We’re so glad we bought this chair. We have a particularly wriggly little one, who manages to get out of, or not want to get into some of the other chairs in restaurants or at friends. We find the central post tends to keep him in place initially and once he is sat down the harness quickly goes over his arms. So there’s no wriggling his legs out, no sliding down out of the chair or moving his feet out of the chair to stand up in! He also seems to prefer being sat upright whereas some of the other chairs seem to encourage him to lean backwards. In fact he looks so comfortable when he rests his arms down the side without the tray it looks like he’s sat in an armchair!At the time, we made our initial decision based on looks (yes it has won loads of design awards), safety (BANTA, said it won the Home and Safety award) and most importantly comfort. We waited until he was old enough and then placed him in loads of chairs and it was the only one that he seemed comfortable, secure and stable in. The chair has now won not only a Which Best Buy, but also a gold Mother and Baby Award 2011/12. We have the green/ walnut one but the chair also comes in orange/ birch and orange/ walnut. It would be great if Oxo could offer different colour options for the padding.The chair is easy to wash. The tray is easy to take on and off with one hand and a quick wash with the washing up brush seems to work. Sometimes the tray turns slightly orange but with a bit of elbow grease and fairy it seems to clean up better. The padding doesn’t seem to suffer from being washed on both sides. We read on some reviews that the tray shouldn’t be dunked as it contains the adjustability mechanism. We notice that water does fall out of the tray, which may not be good for it. Food does tend to congregate under the seat padding (our Velcro under the padding is discoloured), around the post, under the tray and on the arms of the chair. The footrest has also slightly stained but as they’re separate parts we’re hoping we could ask Oxo for a replacement if we wanted to. The chair is suitable up to the age of 5 and we’re hoping the chair will fit under our dining room table (check the height of your table) when he's older.So in summary, yes its expensive, but to us worth every penny and more importantly our little one doesn’t mind sitting in the chair even if he’s not eating!

First impressions looks good
its easy to build taking me no longer than 30 mins. Comes with only a few bolts to do up and then position the seat etc. Our llittle one looked comfy in it at 5 months old and the straps hold him in well. The finish is very good and there is lots of room for adjustment as the little one doesnt get so little.The only negative is once hes in he automatically places his arms where the table slide into so just have to ba a little careful of his fingers, but im sure its something he will learn to do latter on.S
