Bought Joie Mimzy in a hurry, not over the moon
We bought the highchair in a hurry, didn't have much time to think about usability and got overwhelmed with the 6 in 1 feature, so we made the choice.
Still spoonfeeding, so can't comment on further use, however cleaning, assembling, disassembling is painful. The design of the security straps and the way they atache to the base and back of chair is really poor.
A lot of food gets everywhere and I literally have to pull it apart to clean properly, espcially if I want to wash the security straps.
I wish I had the chance to think about how I am going to clean it every time after feeds, so I would say I am not recommending this chair.
Agreed - tray is too high
After reading the reviews about the tray height we tried the Joie Mimzy Snacka in store, thinking the tray height of the Mimzy 2in1 would be the same. It wasn’t.
Luckily my boy is super tall at 7months (75cm at 6mth check), but definitely most babies would struggle to reach their arms over the tray.
Other than that, very happy with the chair. Cushions are great, adjustments are easy to use, and leg rest is good.

Do not buy unless you plan to spoon feed forever
The table height is too high and does not allow for self feeding. It sits at baby’s chin and doesn’t allow their arms to reach the tray.
All pros of this highchair are lost to the fact you can’t use the tray.
Not comfortable for baby
Bought this product for my first baby as it was the one recommended by the baby bunting staff. I’m so disappointed as this is not a functional chair. My son who is 8 months old struggles to eat from the tray. There is no way I can adjust chair or tray for him to comfortable to feed him self from tray. His poor arms are stuck behind tray and can not comfortably reach over and on top to get his food. My son is not a small baby and I can only imagine how much harder it would be for Mums with smaller babies. My sister n law has the next version up ...who has a baby same size and he can happily reach over and eat comfortably. I’m so disappointed as I wouldn’t of spent 250. I now have to use my sister n laws chair as it’s an amazing product and easy for bub to eat. Would of been fine if tray could be adjusted up or down and I have exhausted all avenues to make this work. I’m so sad as eating is a fun time to learn and grow and I can not with my son.

Nightmare to clean
This high chair lasted all of 19 days in our home before the smell drove me insane and i took it back to the store! Quite simply, the webbing (restraints) and the seat covers are a nightmare to clean and even after wiping down and rinsing through the washing machine, they stink! Food is very difficult to wipe off, even if you do a thorough job. There are many cracks and crevices in the body of the high chair too, which means food can get lodged in there. Not a good design.
It's a shame, because the high chair seems very comfortable for the bab...

Good chair, but the food tray is too high for the little one
This High chair is quite stable and comfortable, but the tray table is too high for out 7 month baby. He hardly can put his arms on the table, So we haven't used the try yet... it does recline, but not fully recline, I never left baby sleeping in the chair. But in general, it does the work and so far I haven't found any other issues with the chair.
CON: hard to move
I loved this chair as it reclines and is suitable from birth, we got it when my daughter was 3 months and starting to interact , she loved being at the dinner table during mealtimes. Pros it's comfy and swivels 360 degrees so would turn it so that baby is facing me when doing stuff in the kitchen and living area. I could see no bad in this chair until baby started eating , it's a nightmare to clean and the straps are made from a material that can't be wiped so I have to wash them each time baby gets food on them. I don't regret the purchase though cos my baby's reaction to being level with the dinner table was priceless and I had a small table so could not put the rocker on it.
