Budget Friendly, Safe, and Fun Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair
A high chair that’s incredibly flexible, easy to use and comes with entertainment for your baby to keep it happy while you’re doing something else or just want to have some time for yourself. What makes it stand out is the 7 points adjustable height which makes it easier to feed the baby if you’re standing or feed them when seated. Furthermore, the four swivel wheels are fantastic. That’s another excellent feature. This is very important when you need you need to move the chair just a few inches away or around the table. Not so easy to do it using a high chair on two wheels. Small thing but will make a huge difference in your life.
The three position recline The three position recline (recline, semi-recline and upright) is excellent for bottle feeding. And if your baby falls asleep after he eats, you can softly recline the back and let him drift off. It even comes with an extra removable newborn pillow for better comfort and more importantly to keep their head in place. And when they are older, you can have the back upright so they can enjoy their time at your family table.
The 7 points height adjustment is priceless for a multitasking mom or dad. This feature allows you to feed your baby depending on what you’re are doing. Standing up, sitting or just having a good time watching TV having your LO by your side. Moreover, it will extend the life of the chair as it allows you to position it at almost any regular dining or kitchen table height.
The recline and height adjustment make the higher perfect for a baby who is 3-4 months old up to about 3 years old. This will depend on how fast your baby matures. The chair can hold a child up to max 50 pounds. Both, the recline and height are very easy to adjust.
The tray can be easily taken off with one hand and is dishwasher safe. In fact, it comes with ‘two’ trays. One that snaps on top of the main tray so-called insert or liner and the main tray. Both are dishwasher safe and very easy to use. Having two trays is great because you’ll always have a clean surface when needed. They wash easily, fit standard dishwasher and are stain resistant. It pulls forward and back from your child by sliding it off to minimize food dropping on the seat. We all know that feeding a baby can be messy. So having a way to minimize it helps a lot.
Easy to use and move around. On four swivel wheels so moving it around the house or kitchen table is as easy as it could get. The recline, height adjustment, attaching and removing the tray are one hand operations (except for the height adjustment).
Entertainment for the baby. It comes with two adorable removable toys. A small one that is tethered and hangs off the side. It can go on either side of the tray. And a large that looks like a ‘jungle tree’ that attaches to the tray. The big one, besides animal faces, has lights and music that will entertain your LO. For the lights and music, you’ll need 3 AA batteries (not included). But they are not necessary. The toys provide enough entertainment without the batteries and will keep your LO busy and giggle.
The toys will be a lifesaver when preparing a meal for a fussy, hungry baby. Once the meal is ready simply remove the toys and the tray is ready for a meal time. Moreover, since they attach to the tray, a baby can’t throw the toys on the floor
Safe. Well built and has excellent stability. Each wheel has an independent lock on it. Even if you have a very active baby, you can rest assured that this high chair will not move. It also has a three point adjustable harness.
The leg-post (crotch post) that’s attached to the seat is another excellent feature. It keeps a baby from sliding off while you fasten the safety harness. It works great even when you start using it as a toddler chair without the harness and the tray and will keep them in the seat.
Foldable. It does fold but not flat. The legs fold together to be parallel, but the seat sticks out a bit. To make more compact, you’d have to remove the tray. When folded it is about half of its original length. Also because it has wheels on all legs it won’t stand on its own.
It does have a footrest, but it’s not adjustable. It doesn’t convert to a booster seat.
Cleaning. Just about anything about this high chair is super easy to clean. The seat cover wipes clean easily and is machine-washable. Even after many washes, it doesn’t shrink and looks great. The safety straps come off easily too and can be washed in the dishwasher.
All in all a great high chair. You can’t go wrong with it. It has all the features like easy to clean seat pad, one-hand tray removal, reclining seat back, and multiple height adjustments. Sturdy, durable, safe and easy to use. Not only a high chair that is just a safe place to eat but also provides a great entertainment for the baby too.

Great for parents whose kids like to sit at the table when they are home from school and like to do their homework or just want to hang out around parents playing at a kitchen or dinner table.

- 22.8 in width (left to right)
- At max height in full high chair mode, the top of the tray is about 33 in from the floor
The removable tray that comes with an insert is big enough for feeding or toys. The only downside of the tray is that it doesn’t have a cup holder. Other then that the tray is easy to take off and put back on. You can do it using one hand, but you might need a bit of practice. Another great space saving feature is if you don’t use the tray, it snaps into the back legs.
Cleaning: Having a high chair with great features is one thing. But a chair that’s great and easy to clean puts a smile on every mom’s face And this chair will not let you down. Fisher-Price made one of the easiest to clean and keep it clean high chair.
The seat padding is easy to wipe and machine washable. Another great feature is the straps/harness. Instead of cloth, they are rubberized which makes them super easy to wipe off with a damp cloth.

The tray is easy to take off for cleaning in the sink or a dishwasher. Moreover, even the seat comes apart and is completely dishwasher safe. Except for the legs, everything can be put in the dishwasher or washing machine for better sanitation. Being able to put the tray and the seat into the dishwasher is incredibly convenient.

You’ll love all of the features this chair has to offer.
Stage 1 – High Chair:
You can start using this chair as early as your baby is 2 or 3 months old. It has removable infant head and body support that helps to keep the youngest member of your family in a comfortable position. It kind of cradles to the shape of your newborn, along with small wing pillows around the hips to keep them comfortable.
With the 3-position one-hand reclining seat, you can make sure that your growing child will always be comfortable. Which is perfect for after-meal naps too Just pull it all the way back and let them rest. The 5 point harness will keep them safe at all times.
Stage 2 and 3 – Infant Feeding Booster and Toddler Booster.
The booster is very versatile, and you can use it in a number of ways. What’s great about it, is that it isn’t just a plain booster seat. It is adjustable. It has removable seat back insert with 2 setting, which helps you to keep the right distance from the table as your child grows. It comes with safety straps too which you can use depending on the age of your child.
What’s great about the booster, is that with the booster attached to a chair, you take the infant high chair and snap it onto the booster. (see picture above) so you can use it as two different chairs. This allows you to use this high chair for 2 children simultaneously (more about this below). The booster is very sturdy, easy to take on and off, and does not damage hardwood chairs.
You can even bring it with you while traveling to grandparents house, to a restaurant or on vacation. It’s super light and travels as well.
Stage 4 – Youth Chair or use it with 2 children at the same time.

Pretty cool for one chair. It’s like two seats for the purchase of one and you won’t clutter up your kitchen with more stuff!
Infant High Chair Recline Function
The infant part of the high chair has one hand adjustable 3 positions recline. You’ll love that you can adjust it to your baby’s needs. When your child is an infant the chair lays back for feeding and self-bottle feeding or you can set it upright for playtime or when you start feeding them with solids. Also great if they want to take a nap after feeding.
With 6 points adjustable height you’ll be able to fit this chair to any table. You can bring it as high as a kitchen island or a bar or as low as your couch height and have them enjoy the ‘couch potato’ time with you
Excellent removable tray system
Although they call it 3 tray system it’s technically more like a 2 trays system plus top inset. However, this doesn’t take away anything from the chair.
You can use it with or without the tray. The one hand removable system is easy to use and clean. You can choose between small or large tray depending on your child needs.
All the trays are removable and dishwasher safe. However keep in mind that if you have a small dishwasher, the tray may NOT fit. So you may have to wash it in the sink.
Please note: Some customers have mentioned that the tray doesn’t go as close to the child as they would like to prevent food dropping from it. However, they may not be aware that the tray has adjustable positions. When you push the button on the front of the tray and slide it in the second time, it will click very close to the body even of a small infant. So it appears that some aren’t aware of this feature.
Easy to use and move around
Just about every part of it is one-handed operation except adjusting the height which obviously requires two hands. Anything else from removing or placing the front tray to reclining the back of the chair it’s all one hand operation, easy to do even if you hold a wiggly baby in your other hand.
Putting your child in and get them out of it is just as easy as anything else. You love the one push button. With one push all the straps are released, and you can easily and safely take your baby out of the chair.
It has wheels and is easy to roll around the house. Roll it with one finger be it on the tile floor, carpet, around your kitchen or even to your backyard patio to have breakfast with you. And doesn’t leave any scratch marks on hardwood floors either.
Side note: Actual, you won’t believe it how many moms or dads like to roll their baby around the house just for the fun of it
Anyway, although it is easy to roll around the house, it is heavy if you try to pick it up
Almost anything on this chair is removable and machine washable. Even the straps are removable and machine washable. If you want, you can throw them in the washer in a lingerie bag for a quick clean up.
The padding is faux leather which parents love. It is easy to clean or wipe up and also adds a touch of luxe to the whole look of the chair.
There are some but not a lot of tiny crevices for food to get stuck that will need to be cleaned. However, this shouldn’t be a problem and add extra time to your busy mom schedule.
The highchair structure is durable, sturdy, and substantially made. Wide wheelbase makes it impossible to tip. Wheels with locks made it easy to move around the house and yet secure it when needed. Seat is generously deep, so your child can’t throw weight to fall out to the sides.
Graco 4-in-1 High Chair Key Features:
Everything comes inside one 4 ft tall box. Assembly is straightforward. There is like about 10 pieces that you need to put together. Just make sure you have a Phillips screwdriver, or you’re going to have a hard time.
It does NOT fold
You can disengage it like kind of take it apart. You can slide the youth chair under any standard table when it is in its lower height. And keep the rest in a corner. For many customers with limited space, it’s a big hassle to separate and assemble every time they need to use it. Other than that it’s pretty cool high chair.
Speaking of size, for some customers, it is bulky, for some, it’s just fine. It all depends on the space you have. So before you buy it keep in mind that the base of the chair is around 22 inches side to side and about 29 inches front to back. The base of the booster seat is around 15 1/4′ wide, and 16 1/4′ from front to back. Hopefully, the measurements will help you decide if this is something that would fit your home.
Overall it is a quality product highly recommend to anyone who is looking for something that is versatile, to hold your baby from running around in a safe place and that will last until… well… you don’t need it. And the frame isn’t an eyesore like so many other high chairs are and will complement any house decor.

Easiest To Clean High Chair with All The Right Features
For many moms, if not all parents, ease of cleaning a high chair is on top of their must-have features list. You can have the most advanced high chair but if it ‘s hard to clean and it adds extra 15 min each time you use it to your already busy schedule you’ll hate it. So if you’re looking for a functional chair that requires the least amount of cleaning take look at OXO Seedling High Chair.
This one is one of the high chairs that is the easiest to clean. When you remove the cover and straps which is easy to do and clean (they are machine washable). You are left with solid molded plastic that is very easy to clean. There aren’t any fabric flaps or crevices where food can collect. Besides, it has other great features, and the look is simple and contemporary. Moms love it.
Here are the details:
You can use it as early as 3 or 4 months up to around 3 years. It will last for a while, so you won’t have to worry about buying another chair as your child grows. Stop using it when your baby weight exceeds 45 lbs.
The chair is well padded and comfortable. The cushion is attached very well, so they won’t slide off and covers not only the bottom and back but the sides of the chair as well which prevents food from hiding under the cushion.
The cushion is stain resistant so in the event they ‘paint’ the chair with spaghetti and tomato sauce you’ll be able to wipe it off quickly, and there will be no stains or marks, it will look like new.
With three easy to adjust recline settings, you’ll able to find a comfortable position for bottle or self-feeding. Also great if they fall asleep after a nice meal.
With 5 height setting, it fits almost any table. Which is great if you have tables of a different height. And also gives you the flexibility to make it comfortable for you whether you are standing or sitting when feeding your baby.
To give an idea how high or low you can set it (all measurements are approximate) the distance from the top of the tray to the floor are as follows:
- In the highest setting, the distance is 33”
- In the lowest setting, the distance is 27”
BTY, when the chair is set to the lowest height, you can slide it under a table to take it out of the way after mealtime.
Parents also like the fact that the plastic divider that goes between the baby’s legs is attached to the chair. This along with the 5 point harness keeps them safe and prevents from sliding off.
Parent and Child-Friendly Tray System
Tray system is one of the easiest to use. It slides on and off easily with one hand, you can even put it on or take off while holding a wiggly baby. There are 5 settings for the tray placement so you can have it close enough to your child to prevent most spills and pull it away as they grow.
Since the divider is attached to the chair, not to the tray like most high chairs are build, the tray sits flat on a table or counter. So, no plates or cups sliding off or no toys or food spilling all over the place.
It comes with a tray top. The top snaps on and off the tray easily. And because the tray cover extends around the edges of tray cleaning is easy. And no food gets under the top tray.
Both the tray and the top are machine washable. However, they may not fit in a small dishwasher. To give you an idea big they are here are approximate dimensions: the tray top is 19″ x 13″ and the try is 17″ x 13″
And when not in use the tray hangs on the back of the chair for easy of storage.
Easy to use and move around
Parents praise it for how user-friendly it is. Just about everything in this chair is easy one hand operation except for height adjustment. Maybe one day they’ll come up with one hand adjustable height system, but until then, you’ll have use two. But don’t worry, it is easy to do it even with a child sitting in it.
You can change the recline by pushing one button and set it to the desired position.
The chair rolls around our house beautifully be it hardwood, carpet or tile floor. On 4 wheels with locks on each wheel. You can lock and unlock them with your toe! They move independently of each other (360 degrees), which is excellent for maneuvering even the tightest corner in your home. So, no picking up to move it, just wheel it around. Best of all, they are rubbery and won’t damage or leave any scratch marks on wood floors.
To keep your child safe it has 5 point harness which is easily adjustable. The bar that goes between the baby’s legs is attached to the seat and has plenty of room for baby to grow.
It has locks on all 4 wheels to stop it from moving or to keep it stationary.
Extremely durable, sturdy with a solid base. The base of the chair is a metal frame which gives it excellent stability.
Easy to Clean
Moms favorite part is how easy it is to clean. Clean up is a breeze. If you’re looking to buy something with the least amount of cracks and crevices to clean, this chair won’t let you down.
When you remove the cushion (easy to do) and throw it in the washer, you just wipe down the chair with a sponge. It takes a couple of minutes.
The seat cover is nylon and wipes off easily. Everything be it tomato sauce, potatoes or oatmeal comes off easy without any effort and can be cleaned with a damp cloth. It spot cleans so well that you won’t have to machine wash it very often.
Just like anything else it is very easy to put together. There are like 5 pieces to put together including the seat cover and straps. You’ll be done within minutes.

Overall: Excellent quality and functionality. It has a nice modern look too. So if you’re looking for an affordable, simple, solid, easy to clean and use and reliable high chair, this one checks all the boxes. Available in many colors.
High Chair That’s Stylish, Compact, Functional and Easy To Clean Too
This is yet another excellent choice for those who hate spending a lot of time after each meal cleaning a high chair, rather than enjoy it playing with their little one or relax with the rest of family. Besides ease of cleaning it has another great feature, compact with very small footprint and no bulky legs to trip on Stylish, the slick design will blend perfectly with any kitchen or dining room decor.
When you look at it, it doesn’t look like one of those ‘can do everything,’ not too bulky, kind of simplistic, but the first impression can be deceiving. In fact, it has a lot of hidden features and offers almost everything parents would want from the high chair.
From 6 months to 5 years. Although it is good to use from 6 months and up, you have to be sure that your baby can sit on their own which usually happens around the 6-month mark. But as you probably know children mature at a different rate, some can sit up early and a bit later. So as long as your baby can sit up and hold their head you’re ready to go, if not, you’ll have to wait a bit longer to use it.
Adjustable Height and Footrest
Although not visible or obvious there are 3 settings to adjust the height, to make sure that it will fit your table. There is enough flexibility to fit most standard dinner or kitchen tables (more about this below when I talk about footprint) and have your baby enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner time with the rest of the family.
The footrest has 4 settings. Depending on the age of your child you can use one or two steps at a time. The chair comes with a guide to select the best seat and footrest position based on child’s age. The settings are easy to use and have safety locks too.
The tray is yet another great feature. Adjustable and removable with one hand and easy to clean. You can do it while holding your baby in one hand and put on and take the tray off with the other. With the removable tray and crotch post which prevents the younger one from sliding off, you can use the chair any way you want.
You can set the tray to be very close to a baby, so there isn’t a gap and food isn’t dropping in the seat area preventing mess so there isn’t much cleaning to do after mealtime.
Great for those with limited space or small kitchen area if the small footprint is critical in their choice. In fact, this chair’s footprint is similar to a regular dining/kitchen chairs, and it doesn’t stand out awkwardly.
It has perfect height to slide up to the table so baby can enjoy dinner with the rest of the family. Again, excellent chair for a small kitchen or dining room.
Seat cushions are comfortable and attached with velcro on the bottom, so they are easy to detach and clean. Although they are well made and durable, depending on usage, you may have to replace them once during the lifetime of the chair. They cost around $50.00 and are available in many colors.
One of the highest rated high chairs in consumer reports. The back is high enough to support babies learning to sit up, and the 5 point restraint system along with the crotch post keeps them safe. It is compact, but the base is wide enough to keep it very stable, so you don’t have to worry about anything.
Clean up after meals could not be easier
It could not be easier to clean up after meals. Just wipe the whole thing down, and you’re done! The seat cushion doesn’t absorb liquid and doesn’t stain. It wipes right off be it sweet potatoes, carrots or anything else. So no stains too, keep it fresh and clean all year long.
Although the tray is dishwasher safe, some parents have reported that when they put it in a dishwasher, some water gets in through the holes. It appears like a design flaw. To avoid this problem, some have learned to place it a certain way, so the water doesn’t get in. And since it is so easy to wipe down, some don’t use the dishwasher at all. All you need is soap, water, and a washcloth, and it cleans just fine.
Easy to assemble. Instructions are easy to follow. It takes about 30 min. by not so savvy handywoman You will need a Phillips screwdriver.
Things that you need to know
This high chair does NOT fold; it does compliment any kitchen or dining room, and the footprint is small enough to push it under a table or out of the way into a corner, but it’s not good to travel with.
The chair is designed for children who can sit up, as the back does NOT recline. Great for meal and playtime but no after-meal naps in it. For many parents, this isn’t a problem.
It does NOT have wheels. But repositioning it is n’t an issue. It is heavy enough to be sturdy and stable, and lite enough to easily maneuver it and get your baby in and out of very easily.
Well made, functional and stylish high chair. It does not take up much room, is heavy and sturdy enough to not worry about tipping and light enough to move easily and most importantly. Easy to clean.
A little pricey but worth it. It can be used as early as your baby is 6 months and is adjustable as our baby gets older. And it won’t make your dining area look a like a preschool or kindergarten but more like a warm family place to eat. Available in many colors.

Having said that, there are few things you need to keep in mind before making a purchase decision. Although this is a great high chair, at this price point you’ll have to give up on a few things.
- It does not have reclining back, that’s why it is recommended for children who have enough upper body control to sit up which is about 6 months.
- It does fold but NOT fully when folded it reduces the footprint by about 30%. For more compact folding, you’ll have to remove the tray. Not the perfect chair to travel with. However, it is smaller than most high chairs if you want something fairly compact for a small house or an apartment.
- There is no cup holder on the tray.
- It does have a footrest but it’s not adjustable, however, some parents say that their kids never used it anyway.
- It has no wheels, but it is light and easy to move from one room the another. So this shouldn’t be an issue.
- The tray only has two attachment points so that’s not very adjustable, however, it wasn’t a huge issue for most parents.
All around an excellent chair, good quality and sturdy. The attractive gender-neutral design will fit in any home.
The real plus point is that as your child grows, this highchair adapts. So your child can sit at your family table, secure and feels safe in this chair. Perfect product for families on a limited budget.
