What should be included:
  • Most high chairs consist of a tip-resistant plastic or metal frame; an attached adjustable seat with safety belt and crotch post; a removable tray; and a footrest. Some models have attached wheels; others come with toys. Wooden high chairs are also available but generally don't offer as many features.
Discounts:
  • Some high chairs double as a swing and others are designed to convert to a booster seat.
Shopping for a high chair:
  • Buyers should consider size, style, baby safety features and user-friendly details such as one-hand tray release. The frame should be of smooth construction with no rough edges, holes or hinges that can injure a child and no removable parts that can create a choking hazard. Make sure high chairs with wheels or that are designed to fold for storage have secure locking mechanisms that prevent them from rolling or collapsing during use. There should be a safety belt or harness and crotch post to keep the baby secure in the chair. Test the safety belt or harness fasteners, seat height and seat reclining adjustment, and other mechanisms for ease of use. Evaluate the comfort, durability and washability of the seat cover.
  • About.com[2] recommends selecting a model approved by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association[3] .
  • Fisher Price offers several of practical chairs that cost from $50 to $100. Parenting Magazine recommends the Ocean Wonders Aquarium model, which can be found at Amazon for $65.19. For those seeking a quieter design, Chicco's Polly Chair in Woodstock is a popular choice and can be found at Albee Baby[4] for $95.
  • In the high-end range, consider Graco's[5] sleek Contempo model in pewter, available from Albee Baby[6] for $130. Or, for an even more striking design, consider the unusual Svan High Chair, which is available in cherry, natural or whitewash. Svan offers a list of retailers, where the chair can be found for about $250. The custom cushion accessory[7] is available in various colors and sells separately for about $35.
  • Online retailers with a variety of name brands and price ranges include Target.com[8] , Walmart.com[9] , ToysRUs.com[10] and Amazon[11] .
