Does the job but
Really like that it has an infant insert.
The legs stick out really far and we always seem to trip over it.
Also back is quite low so the shoulder straps keep falling off.
We like it but but has a few hiccups.
Purchased in May 2021.
While this chair looks good it is not functional, the reviews on here are the reason I bought it in the first place but I don’t know what people were raving about.
Issues with this chair:
- The tray is too small to fit most plates on
- Most suction plates don’t actually stick on because of the material
- It’s super hard to clean the joins, food gets stuck and it doesn’t come apart
- The tray is too far away from my baby because the seat is far too big and the tray is not adjustable making it harder for her to reach her food
- I had to buy t...

Worst high chair ever
Worst high chair ever. I’ve bought a target high chair since and am much happier. I’ll make it very simple:
1. Not compact, doesn’t fold and legs are a death trap
2. Back of seat too low and uncomfortable for child
3. Footrest still too low for child (18 months and he is tall)
4. Harness is useless and child easily escapes
5. Tray is tiny and too much food falls on the floor
5. Tray is too far away from child and a lot of food always falls in between. Child and straps are always filthy after every meal.
6. Accessories are crap and a deliberate ...

This high chair is hopeless. I bought it because I loved my redsbaby pram.
The foot stool (even when adjusted) is too low for my 8 month old’s feet to reach (and he is in 98th percentile for height). The fabric chair insert needs to be washed not wiped to clean and there are grooves and crevices everywhere for food to get stuck. Would recommend saving your money and buying a cheap one from Kmart or Ikea.

Nice looking chair but impractical!
These chairs look great but in my opinion they are lacking functionality. I assume almost all babies require the insert as the tray is very far away from the seat. Even at 8 months it is too big for my boy! In addition, there are a few small crevices where food gets stuck and it is difficult to clean. Not a huge fan unfortunately

Absolutely terrible highchair
I was very excited to get this. Love redsbaby but more and more I wonder why! Got this in slate grey. My 7 month old cannot sit in it without a towel so of course here’s another $60 accessory you need to buy which haven’t recieved but looks like awful material to wipe. It may be machine washable but I don’t want to do this every day!? The Tray sits so far away from child it’s pointless even having because the food goes everywhere not to mention hard for wee man to reach. The plastic is a wierd texture that suction plates don’t stick on to it a...nd lastly the tray is so small it’s even smaller than the bumbo tray I have and also so small a flat suction plate cannot fit in. Also No indent for a drink. All in all this is a really really crappy product from redsbaby just like most of the accessories for my pram I have brought. Their name is more than their product quality so just don’t bother. Of course I could send back, but after putting it together and testing with a child with food who can “box it back up in original packaging and send back”.. sucked in to buy the insert now to make it at least usable. Only good thing? Cool colour. Function and design should both play important roles redsbaby

This company cannot deliver its goods - I ordered on 13 October and finally on 30 November told that goods not available until 30 December - even then????
Don't even bother ordering anything from them
Just pathetic - I am alerting the Office of Fair Trading that they are useless
Absolutely hate this chair
I purchased this chair specifically for the low option. The chair arrived with only the high option. Turns out you have to buy the short legs separately. They then charged me shipping a second time. Everyone in my house hold has tripped over the chair and hurt themselves very badly. I dont think this chair is safe at all.
I asker if I could send it back for a full refund. They wanted me to take it apart and put it back in original packaging as it was. I dont know about you but we get rid of rubbish immediately. They gave me no other option. Its...

100000% do NOT recommend
The straps sit below my baby’s shoulders and are constantly falling off him. It’s useless having them so low because they provide no support. It is an absolutely terrible design!
The food tray is also way too far away so my son can’t even reach his food.
You can get better chairs from Kmart and Target for $39! Do not buy this product, it’s a waste of money.

Looks nice but needs work
I love the look of this high chair in my home but would love it to be updated with some
adjustments! The tray is too far away from baby, so food goes straight onto the lap. The tray is also too small for most suction plates, or any plates to fit on. It would also be great with a more adjustable foot rest at different heights.
The look is lovely in my home and it is easy to clean.

Very stylish but not comfortable for young babies
I love the look and the high quality materials of this highchair and it's so easy to wipe down. Doesn't seem super comfortable for our 7 month old baby though, the edges of the chair seem to dig into him a bit and he slouches in the highchair even though he can sit up on his own. I do like that the highchair can be converted into a toddler chair for when he is older but wish I didn't have to buy the short legs seperately. Also the tray is very difficult to remove.

Very good quality
Matches my dining table chairs perfectly, excellent quality very durable just annoying how the accessories are sold separately and quite pricey would think for that price the cushion would come with it. The delivery took 3 months to come way to long I want to order the shorter legs but don’t want to wait so long

Looks good but some big design issues exist
We ordered the HiLo chair with all accessories. Looks good. Not cheap but not ridiculously priced. Unhappy that the legs are not perfectly aligned. No option to adjust them. The shoulder straps keep falling off shoulders of our toddler. Poor design as they start from behind and under the shoulders. Easily stained.

Does the job
Looks nice & fits nicely at our dining table. It’s also easy to clean & keep clean. Can’t tell you how many times we trip on the legs though which does cause frustration. We have found it isn’t probably worth the cost in comparison to other high chairs available.

Attractive highchair but legs wobble
Love the colour and how easy the chair is to clean. Down side is, my baby can rock the chair as the legs are uneven. We have had pad one leg to stop it rocking.

Hi, can anyone please tell me if suction Boris abs plates such as the wild Indiana bowls work in this high chair. Thanks
Thank you for getting in touch with us.
I am sorry to say I am unable to confirm if these bowls will work as they have not been tested, however, I have forwarded this question through to the design and marketing team and once we have feed back, we will post information onto the website.

No they do not! No suction plates work
Bright berry bowls and plates work!
