Searching for a high chair? I could go on and on about how obsessed I am about this, but I'll spare you. (My husband wishes he were as lucky). After the frustration with the cheap plastic Safety 1st versions we originally chose, and a lot of research, I have surely found the perfect chair. (I said I found it, not that I can afford it). This definitely tops my wish list at the moment and if we had a few spare hundred I would buy two in a second. For those of you who have the money, or by chance, only one child in need of a high chair, or maybe haven't already wasted eighty bucks or so on cheap fixes: here, my friends, is the highchair of your dreams and mine.
Yes, it is gorgeous. It is adjustable, holds from baby to an adult, comes in many colors, and is made from beechwood (eco-friendly) in a country that is not China! I'm not going to go into all the details of my research but a few alternates to check out if you are interested: The Hipposmile chair is the closest copy-cat of the original Stokke. It looks virtually identical and will soon (next week I'm told) have very similar color choices. Apparently the only place to find these in the US is on Ebay. The Keekaroo is also similar but comes in only one color (not as pretty). It does have an optional tray (they run a free tray promotion often as well) which might tempt parents of younger children. Kettler makes a couple of options: the Tipp Topp, and the Junior chair. These are quality products worth looking into, but the price point is a little high for what is still a lookalike of the original product.
Well, you see where I spend my time! Hopefully someone searching out the options will take a look and find them all in one place!
