Dangerous! Look elsewhere!
We had one of these high chairs for almost 2 years- that's right, notice I stated "had"...
Just the other day, while our 20 month-old was eating breakfast, the back leg snapped off sending her crashing to the ground! She wacked her head and received an almighty fright the poor darling!
We couldn't believe how the legs were attached to the seat by just plastic!
So, so disappointed...
Don't fall (haha, punny) for this high chair- it might have the looks but it sure isn't built to last!
Not a good high chair
Bought this as it looked amazing and thought it'd be great.
The tray is hard to adjust however the worst part of this high chair is the straps. You CANNOT remove them. Straps will get grotty and need to be cleaned and this chair you just can't do that. Form should not be more important than function.
Purchased in December 2018.
Comfy for bub and aesthetically pleasing but not practical
This chair is really lovely to look st and comfy for bub. I have this in black and honestly it is just not practical at all. My first was a very clean eater so it getting spiked wasn’t too big of a deal and it never really needed a good clean and a wipe did the trick. My second is such a messy eater, food everywhere and that fact the chair is made of fabric, the straps cannot be removed nor the chair cover (e.g to place in the wash) it is filthy. I’m pretty sure I am going to have to hose it and scrub it outside to get it clean. Wiping is just not good enough. I’m going to sell it and buy the $24 dollar plastic high chair from ikea, this really isn’t worth the money as it’s just not made with babies in mind
Good, but not practical.
I love the look of this highchair, it was what initially sold me. However having used it for several months now I am ready to change to another chair as it doesn’t suit our needs.
Like most of the reviews, The straps get really grubby and you cannot remove them to wash.
If your baby is a little chubby this won’t last very long because the chair is really padded leaving not much space between the seat and the tray.
I have also found the chair to be slippery and my bub likes to wriggle around and tends to slide down, which looks uncom...fortable. The detachable top section of the tray was great for cleaning, but then my bub learnt how to pull it off, so we no longer have it on there. All in all this is a good chair, looks stylish and has two different heights! But for us it is not practical.
Hard to clean and dangerous
Aesthetically this high chair is the best I’ve seen.
However, the straps are white and cannot be removed to be cleaned so they look disgusting already. There also isn’t an option to not use the straps as baby can easily kick the front tray on the high chair and kick the tray table off so baby would fall straight out.
As the chair is so upright with no option to recline, it is really hard to put baby in on your own as you kind of need someone to hold baby to prevent her falling forward while the other person straps baby in.
I did a bit of research when looking for a highchair and I was tossing up buying the baby bjorn one and then came across this. It was considerably cheaper and the fact it converts to a chair is fantastic. The legs are not spread too far apart either so you won't trip when walking past.
We use the chair for 1-2 meals each day, it's easy to position baby and stamp on (watch your fingers and their skin on the clip), the tray slides on and off with ease and there's a removable bit of the tray for easy cleaning. The chair wipes down easily, but our...
Aesthetically pleasing but fiddly straps
This is a great looking high chair!! Really stylish!! But honestly I'm worried if I'm not focused when strapping him in he could wriggle free because the straps are a bit fiddly.
It's also really easy to clean but as I learnt the hard way DO NOT try to take the straps out to wash them. I'm used to being able to take everything apart to wash it but these straps are designed to stay exactly where they are!!

Stylish, easy to use and clean
After browsing highchairs at all the baby stores and department stores, my mind could not forget this one. Reasonably priced at big w, $150, and now even cheaper at $120. While I was shopping for it another lady said if the Pod had been around when she was buying, she would have bought it. It was the best looking one around, only at Big W no less! There is a very expensive version at David Jones, different colour but exactly the same as the Pod. Don't let Big W know this ;-). When your child knows how to walk and climb, don't leave the tray of...f, as they can use the foot rest to climb up. For a deep thorough clean I pull the whole chair into the shower, grab a scourer with dishwashing liquid and scrub. In between deep cleans a simple wipe down will do. No fabric bits to change out. But still soft and plush for baby to sit on. I am not too fond of the top tray, so it has been permanently removed. Watch baby's fingers, fat folds on arms when sliding the tray back on, it can pinch. If you have a clever baby, they can kick the tray off. I have owned this for 9 months. Still looks like new. I can't wait to convert to toddler chair when baby is older.
Questions & Answers
How do you remove the top part of the tray for cleaning? I haven't been able to work this out. Thanks.
It just pulls off. There are two small sections on either side you can put your fingers under, then pull up. It takes a bit of force the first time. :)
Thanks for answering SLM. That's correct, the sub-tray is easily removed by locating the lip and lifting up.
Hi just wondering what the weight limit is for this high chair?
Hi Brendon D. The weight limit for the Pod Timber High Chair is 17kgs.
Hi all just wondering if the tray is adjustable or does it click into one position only? My baby is quite petite so wanting to know if it's going to sit close to her body or will there be a large gap. Thanks!
