iCandy launches high chairThe MiChair can be used from birth to toddler age
21 September 2015
Pushchair giant iCandy has expanded its repertoire with a foray into the world of high chairs.
The stylish new iCandy MiChair was revealed at this month’s Kind und Jugend baby show, and we got a sneak preview before it's released.
The beautifully designed MiChair will grow with your child to toddler age, as its modular components can be rearranged to suit your child’s age.
An optional newborn pod can either be used atop the high chair or as a low level baby rocker.
As your child grows, the chair can be used as a typical high chair with a tray, and later as a toddler chair and as a mini rocking chair with the optional attachments.
It's certainly a striking piece of furniture, and its convertible functionality impressed us.
Designer high chairs
This type of premium, expensive, convertible high chair became popular more than 40 years ago with the launch of the iconic Tripp Trapp from Stokke.
The original Tripp Trapp converted from a traditional high chair all the way up to a child chair.
The Stokke Tripp Trapp is still popular but it will set you back more than £200. See whether we think it is worth the investment in our Stokke Tripp Trapp review.

In the last few years, both the Tripp Trapp and similar convertible high chairs have started to include a newborn accessory. This is said to help with early months bonding, as your baby can be up at the table with you as you eat. The MiChair is the latest high chair in this category.
It will be interesting to see whether this new iCandy high chair gains as devoted a list of parent and celebrity fans as the iCandy pushchairs.
It has been ten years since the iCandy pushchair brand was launched, and it has gained enormous popularity as a go-to name in premium pushchairs – but does the quality of the product live up to the hype?
