First, I'll tell you why I wanted this high chair. For my first kid, I had a Graco high chair. You know, the kind that takes up half a kitchen. To be honest, I didn't get to use it much till my daughter was almost one and a half because she was a petite baby. The high chair would just swallow her! So I wanted a small high chair and if at all possible, one that could be stored out of the way when not in use. That is why I bought this chair and it is perfect! What I like: 1. It is small. My baby is small and regular high chairs are too much chair for her. I wouldn't be able to put her in a "full size" high chair till she would be much older. 2. It actually folds up! You know the baby products that say they collapse for easy storage and then when you "collapse" them, they are almost as bulky and hard to store as when they were set up? That is NOT this chair. It folds flat and compact! I will have absolutely no issues even traveling with this high chair! It's also extremely easy to release the lock to fold it up. 3. The tray is super easy to slide on and remove. My old high chair's tray was a PAIN. I couldn't get it on without a fight and there were many times that I couldn't get it to release. It was awful. This high chair's tray was so easy to slide on! There was no difficulty lining it up to get it to lock. The tray release is easy to find as well. 4. Easy to put together. This took me ten minutes to put together. It wouldn't have even taken that long if you didn't have to screw the floor protectors on! You literally unfold the seat, snap on the two leg braces, snap on the foot rest, and you're mostly finished. Easy peasy! To address previous concerns: 1. That the padding in the seat is too thin. The padding is not as cushy as other high chairs, but since my baby will be eating in this seat and not sleeping, I'm not worried. She'll be plenty comfortable to sit in it for her meals. I sit on hard wood to eat and my older girls sit on hard plastic booster seats. My baby will be fine! 2. The seat reclines and doesn't adjust. I would prefer for the seat to be more upright, but this hasn't been an actual issue for us. Since my baby sits upright on her own, she sits upright in this chair to eat. I could see it being a problem for someone using the chair for a younger baby that doesn't sit on their own or if your baby just reclines when given the option. Yet it is a problem that has a simple solution. A thin pillow or a folded up blanket will remedy any reclining woes. 3. The chair would tip easy. I could see this happening if you have a really active toddler that rocks hard left to right intentionally. It is a light weight high chair. Although I haven't baby tested whether or not this high chair would tip (since my baby is still too small to even come close to having the physical power to rock this chair), it feels like it would stand up to most normal movement during use. Overall, I love this high chair and it is perfect for what I wanted/needed!
