High chairs best buys are all tested by parents and their babies

If you're after a new high chair, you'll be looking for something that keeps your little one safe and secure at mealtimes, as well as being easy to clean. 

Our latest round of Which? high chairs testing has revealed one new high chair hero that impressed us and our parent testers enough in all these areas to become a Best Buy. But our in-depth lab tests also uncovered three models with potential safety concerns. 

During our tests, the foot rests on two models broke off when 10kg was placed on them (that's about the weight of a one year old) and the feet on another model weren't attached securely enough and fell off, making the high chair unstable.

Which? is the only reviews website that puts high chairs through a range of tough safety and durability tests based on British Standards. 

All high chairs we test are subjected to rigorous safety checking; they're scrutinised in our lab and then handed over to parents and their babies and toddlers to discover how easy they are to use on a day-to-day basis – so we can give you a verdict you can trust to help you choose your high chair with confidence.  

Find out which models we rate Best Buys and which ones we have concerns about in our high chair reviews.
