Considering the high rate reviews on the products we decided to get the Hilo high hair. As soon as we received it we put it together and it was all wobbly. So I contacted customer service to claim the dodgy product. It took over a week for them to give us a solution which then took another 2 weeks for them to realise they had an error in their system and hadn’t sent the replacement piece for our high chair. In saying that we are still waiting for the replacement pieces.... the product itself looks good! But so disappointed the time we have to wait to actually get what we are paying for
Great chair but I’d make a couple changes
Easy to clean material but the tray is really difficult to snap on and off and silicone plates and bowls don’t stick to the tray. It would be nice if the bottom part of harness was removable to better clean and if it wasn’t white it’d be better. Otherwise I love the way it looks and baby is comfortable in it.
Great Affordable Comfortable High Chair
We have a Redsbaby pram and it is awesome, so when we started looking for a highchair I was excited to see that they now offered one also. Delivery was extremely quick. Assembly of the high chair is fool proof. Quality of product is excellent. Our daughter loves it and seems extremely comfortable in it.
We purchased the grey highchair, table tray, seat cushions & seat cover.
Cons & Suggestions:
There was no instructions on how to attach the seat cover however its self explanatory and easy to install.
The seat cover seams are stitched wi...
Stylish, easy and practical
I love the practicality of the HILO. For a first time mum each milestone can be both exciting but also a little daunting. The HILO is user friendly, easy to clean, stylish and incredibly supportive, especially with the padded insert - perfect for starting the solids journey! Let the mess and fun begin!
Good quality high chair
We really like this high chair. The seat is easy to clean and safe with a five point harness. We purchased the cushion insert, for comfort for our little one and to pad his head against the back (he's still a bit small, this won't be an issue when he grows). We also purchased the removable tray. The tray is so convenient - we are doing baby-led weaning and we place the food on the tray and just take it off and wipe down or wash between meals. The only thing that is difficult to clean is the gap between the legs and the footrest - small bits of ...food get caught in there and you can't get it out easily. Otherwise eveything (including the cushion insert) is easily cleans and holds up with constant washing. I'd definitely recommend this for comfort and safety - and it's also a very good looking chair! The feet stick out a bit for stability - but we just move the chair out of the way when not in use so it doesn't become a tripping hazard.
Great, stylish chair at an affordable price
I wanted a high chair that was practical as well as looking good in our home. I was about to purchase a much more expensive chair but when I saw this one pop up on Instagram on sale I thought it was worth a shot! It arrived really quickly (I purchased it direct from Redsbaby) and well packaged. It wasn't too tricky to put together and is reasonably sturdy, although we have an issue with it wobbling a bit as if not all the legs are exactly the same length. It's pretty easy to keep clean but I do wish the tray was a bit easier to remove as fo...od gets stuck underneath - I find it hard and need to get my husband to do it. The white straps look good but are a bit frustrating to keep clean - I am constantly soaking them in Napisan which does the trick but a darker colour wouldn't require so much maintenance. Love the light blue colour of the chair and the overall look. Great that it has a footrest which many chairs don't. The silicon tray mat is a great idea but I'm afraid my son just throws it straight on the floor!! Overall I'm very happy with this chair for the price.
Stylish & great quality but not that practical
The RedsBaby HILO chair is a beautiful design and a stylish addition to your home especially compared to a lot of the plastic designs out there. The quality is great and it is very study but I do find it pretty difficult to get bubs in and out, I wish you could unclip/swivel out the front to make things easier as his legs get very stuck. I also wish the back of the chair was slightly higher for bubs to rest his neck on, sometimes he looks a little awkward in it so may be an issue for younger babies. This high chair is defiantly on the pricey si...de which I was okay with given Redsbaby is a great brand, however I was very annoyed that I had to purchase the tray separately which I would assume is a very basic necessity for a high chair. I didn’t realise this at first so had to pay double the postage to get it sent which made things even more costly. Overall I am still happy with the purchase, it’s a lovely design & love the colour.
Stylish and functional
We ordered the HILO based on the five point harness and the stylish design. On these points we couldn’t be happier. We were surprised how roomy the seat area is but we’ve managed to use with our young baby (since six months old). I’d encourage a little more innovation in terms of the tray and straps. Food easily falls down into the seat due to the position of the tray and it’s hard to remove the harness for washing - though I must say I haven’t seen any other products that are better in this regard. Would definitely recommend this product. Great to buy an Australian product.
Stylish addition to the dining table
This high chair fits in with our dining set with the natural timber legs which means it is not an eyesore or needs to be packed away.
Stable, lightweight and easy to assemble, the high chair is fairly easy to get bub in and out of.
I’m particularly impressed with the durability and ease of cleaning (with a wet wipe) of the cover. Bub is secure when wriggling in the four point harness and I liked the option to include the insert to adjust as your bub grows.
Being a Redsbaby pram fan, I’d recommend this high chair as it lives up to the quality I have come to expect from the brand.
Aesthetically pleasing but misses the mark
-Simple design and easy to assemble
-Can use as a low chair or high chair
-Tray is seperate and food gets jammed into the join where it attaches to the chair, not easy to clean
-Silicone tray insert doesn’t cover the whole tray so you still end up cleaning the tray
-Legs stick out which makes a trip hazard
-The back of the chair is low and when my baby puts his head back it hits the hard edge (even with the cushion insert there is little padding)
Nice design but some flaws
The chair itself has a sensible and stylish design - easy to clean, simple and especially striking in the powder blue. There are however a few flaws: the tray table can be tricky to take off (gets stuck); the white straps are impossible to clean well (though hardly a unique complaint of this design); and it wasn’t not clear from the website that you have to purchase the short legs (to convert to low chair) separately. So we’re a little disappointed. Well worth getting the extras, eg cushion cover, for a small baby.
Aesthetically this high chair is fabulous! Looks great in the dining room. It is comfortable for baby. However I find taking the tray on and off not very user friendly, it’s a bit awkward to pull off, a drawback I can live with however.
Great high chair
Love this high chair! It’s so stylish and easy to use. The only thing I don’t like is the foot rest is way too low for my 5.5 month old and isn’t adjustable.
Fantastic addition to our home
We picked this high chair because we wanted something stylish to match our home, which we didn’t find with most other high chairs. This is a functional chair which is easy to assemble and light weight to easily move around the home. The footrest is a great addition. I would recommend removing the tray after each use to ensure it is completely clean.
Great quality and aesthetically pleasing
This product is well made, sturdy, looks great in our house. love the five point harness. A little difficult to clean though, the food gets caught in all the cracks.
Compact & versatile
Love the look, size and ability to convert to a toddler chair. Only downside is the leg holes are a little tight and my baby gets frustrated, it would be great to have the middle removable or able to open especially when starting out using the chair for first solids.
Stylish, compact and functional high chair!
The Hi Lo Chair is sleek and compact with a great range of modern colour ways to choose from.
It was simple to assemble and I was impressed by the high quality parts.
I love the soft cushion with optional insert for my smaller sized baby who wasn’t sitting independently and the fact I’ve been able to easily wipe minor food spills off it fairly easily.
Unfortunately, the silicone tray insert can be lifted up by the baby and I hope this is something they consider should they bring out an updated model in the future.
Food does get caught between the clip on tray and the leg restraint so it does mean you need to disconnect the tray after each feed to clean it which is a little annoying.
Comfy for little bubs
It’s a great chair for bubs learning to sit - especially with the padded seat. My only issue is the harness isn’t easily cleaned. Looks great & our bub loves sitting with us.
Just okay, some basic flaws
This high chair looks great and is okay but there are some simple flaws. It has white straps, this is crazy to me, they were filthy with the first use, you can wipe them and clean them a little but it doesn’t look great. The add ons are expensive and with the tray being quite small it’s hard to find a plate that will fit it. (The smallest ezpz plates don’t fit). When the tray is attached food gets caught very easily in the gaps.
I’d say this high chair has been designed for aesthetics rather than function.
Perfect! Bubs loves it
Easy to assemble and clean and seems comfortable for our baby. Glad we found reds baby as we thought they only do prams. Definately recommend using them and quick delivery
Love how easy this is to wipe down. Hate the white straps which are impossible to keep clean. Also with my almost 9 month old strapped in tight she struggles to reach the food on her tray. But if I loosen them off she gets out of the straps and is standing up in her chair. Hopefully she might grow into it better and be able to reach her food properly. I do love that it’s a basic easy to use high chair tho
Stylish and practical
We love our Redsbaby pram, so were thrilled when the Hilo highchair was released.
It is so much more stylish than a lot of highchairs out there and comes in a good range of colours.
The height is perfect, with ours sitting right up at our dining table with the tray overlapping, meaning bubs is part of family meals.
The chair is very sturdy, and the cushion made it super snug for bubs to sit in, especially when starting out, and the seat size and shape means there is plenty of room for growth.
My only complaints would be the white harness - gets filthy very quickly - and there are a few hard to get to nooks for everyday cleaning. However, all components are easily able to come apart for thorough cleaning.
Great stylish high chair
The HILO is a great high chair and it actually looks good too. Our baby seems very comfortable in it and clean up is relatively easy. The only thing I would change is the white harness. It got dirty right away and cannot be fully cleaned.
Stylish and functional
Loved our Redsbaby pram so decided to order their new Highchair. It was super easy to put together and we love how stylish it is. The bucket chair is a great size and plenty of room to grow for bub.
Loving creating mealtime memories!!
I purchased this chair due to our dining chairs being charcoal with light wooden legs. Initially I thought we would be a while off starting solids as I did not think my 17 week old chunky son would be able to sit up well enough yet but he absolutely loves sitting in his chair. The wide base & non-slip feet of the chair stop it from sliding on my polished concrete floor even when my food obsessed staffy is pushing against it he is safe & secure. I was hesitant about the cushion but it washes beautifully & I love that I can put the silicone mat i...n my dishwasher because who wants to add handwashing to their list of jobs for the day?! My favourite thing is that this chair combines the ease of being able to clean it just as easily as the iconic ikea chair whilst supporting my baby comfortably & me being able to pick & choose the accessories to match the aesthetic of my pre-baby home taste rather than my home having to conform to all the kiddy colour palates (I used to host lost of dinner parties so it is nice the keep my dining area looking as much like I had it before I turned into Mum). The only things that would make it better would be a charcoal or black harness (I dread the day he starts finger feeding a nice pasta with tomato sauce!) & if there were optional taller legs for purchase that would allow the chair to be kitchen island height (I would love to pull him up to the island as he would be further away from the dog & I could wipe the mess straight into the sink or bin in the island & he could watch me as I prepare dinner etc) - if Redsbaby ever make either of these options available I will definitely purchase them!
