New baby nursery range - Which? sneak previewOxo Tot high chair and feeding kit to hit UK shops
08 October 2010
The Oxo Tot nursery range will be in UK shops soon - so Which? went along to the launch to see what this new baby product collection has to offer.
American brand Oxo (no relation to the company behind Oxo cubes) is best known for its home gadgets and kitchen utensils. It says it has applied the same design principles to its Tot range - products that offer 'simple yet stylish' solutions to everyday parenting tasks.
The new products, which will be sold in John Lewis, Amazon, Kiddicare and JoJo Maman Bebe, include a high chair, matching feeding and eating equipment - plus baby bottle cleaning items, bathtime accessories and some colourful night lights.
We've got reviews of high chairs and advice on more baby products in our nursery and feeding section.

Prices start at £5. We'll be asking our Which? test panel of mums and dads to try some of the products out and tell us what they - and their children - think. In the meantime, flick through our Oxo product photo gallery:
Oxo Sprout high chair
The Sprout high chair, pictured above, is the flagship product of the range and already available to buy in John Lewis. It's suitable for use between six months and five years, converting from an adjustable high chair with tray and five-point harness into a tot seat.
On first impressions, the high chair looked very solid and sturdy, and we found it fairly straightforward to adjust the seat height, footrest and remove the tray.
We liked the wipe clean seat fabric, which you can also unsnap from the main seat to get it under the tap, and the fact that there weren't any obvious awkward nooks and crannies where food could gather. On the downside, the high chair isn't foldable.
The seat can be lowered and the crotch post, tray and straps removed to convert it into a child seat using the separate seat pad that comes with the high chair.
At £200, it's on the pricey side. The high chair has a seven-year guarantee and comes in green, orange and taupe.
