Unbiased high chair reviews from Which?

Which? is the only reviews website that tests high chairs according to tough durability and safety requirements based on British Standards.

We have a range of Best Buy high chairs for different budgets. They've all passed our independent, rigorous safety checks and been scrutinised by our lab experts, and they all impressed our parent testers.

Our specially designed high chair tests will help you sort a sturdy, safe and easy-to-use high chair from one that is rickety, fiddly and possibly unsafe for your child. 

We look at all the key features of a high chair, including harnesses, trays and footrests, and check how easy each one is to assemble, adjust, fold and store. We also subject high chairs to tough stability and impact tests so you can find out whether the product you're considering will stand up to countless mealtimes.

Find out more about how we test high chairs.

You can trust our reviews because we subject every high chair to the same range of technical tests in our labs. We also check how easy they are to set up and use straight from the box, and what they're like to use day to day. 

We review thousands of products and services every year, shedding light on the best and worst to help you with your everyday decisions. With advice and reviews on everything from energy suppliers and high street shops, to laptops, cars and coffee machines, we can help you save money.

Which? is independent – we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We don't take advertising and we buy all the products that we test ourselves, so our advice helps you to make the right choice first time and avoid costly mistakes.
