How it works

The Boon Flair High Chair is a sleek, state-of-the-art high chair that really stands out. It not only stands out because of its design, but the chair is also practical and easy to clean. Parents who have purchased the high chair praise it for its ability to stay clean, to fit at any table or counter, and its design, which is not like ordinary high chairs. With a pneumatic base that allows for easy and swift movement up and down and six gliding wheels underneath the base, the Boon Flair High Chair has so many conveniences for parents that although it may have a few characteristics that are not completely on point, the high chair is still one of the most sought after and slightly more expensive high chairs on the market.

Design

Design

It’s the design of the Boon Flair High Chair that makes it so appealing. To start, the seat of the high chair is completely seamless. The entire chair is one whole piece. Because of this particular design choice, there are no cracks or crevices for food or drink or crumbs to get caught in. The seat is lined with a padded cover that gives your child comfort as they sit in the chair. The cover also contains a five point safety harness that keeps your child secure while they are in the chair so they can’t slip out or get hurt. The harness can also be adjusted so that as your child grows the harness grows with them. The tray of the high chair is completely adjustable to two different settings to also grow with your child, and the tray comes with two covers that are dishwasher safe to make the high chair even more easy to clean. There is a footrest with the chair that is not adjustable, but comes in handy when your child is tall enough to need one.

The base of the Flair High Chair is like a barber’s chair: it is pneumatic. There is button that you press on the base of the chair and all you have to do is gently push down or pull up on the chair to adjust the chair to your desired setting.

The base of the chair also has a step break so that you can lock the chair in place once you have it positioned where you want it to be whether it’s at the dinner table, the counter, or off to the side for storage.
Safety

Safety

The Boon Flair High Chair makes safety a high priority. With the five point safety harness, your child will remain secure while eating. The harness works just like any five point harness in that you put your child’s arms through the straps and adjust them accordingly. The straps then clip into a buckle that is located between your child’s legs. The seat of the Boon Flair High Chair is designed to come up between your child’s legs so that they can’t slip out of the chair. As your child grows older, you can raise the straps higher on the chair for added protection for an older child. It should be noted; however, that the release button on the harness although hard to push can be pushed by an older child who has the strength to pop open the harness, so always keep an eye on your child when they are in the high chair.

The high chair also has six gliding wheels that allow for the chair to quietly and softly roll across any type of floor. The wheels can also be locked so that the chair stays in place. It should be known that even when the wheels are locked, the chair will move if pushed. Many parents keep a watchful eye out as older kids will try to push their younger siblings around in the chair even though it is locked, so although the chair will stay in place, if pushed with enough force it will move away from the table. Also, for the safety of your child, the seat does not swivel although it can move slightly from side to side. This is to prevent your child from swinging around and potentially getting hurt of moving the chair on their own.
Cleaning the Chair

Cleaning the Chair

Cleaning the Boon Flair High Chair is super easy. One of the main design concepts of the chair was to make cleaning the chair quick. The chair seems to be able to resist stains such as tomato sauce, strawberries, and any other food that leaves behind a big stain. Parents have found that the best way to clean the chair is to take a household cleaning wipe that contains bleach or a water and bleach mixture and wipe down the chair after your child eats. Most of the designs of the Boon Flair High Chair contain a white seat even though the rest of the chair comes in a variety of colors. With the bleach solution, the chair wipes clean easily. The padded seat cover removes with almost no effort and that is easily wiped down with a warm cloth and some soap. You can get off crumbs and stains with the cloth and it will also work on the straps of the harness.

The tray of the Boon Flair High Chair comes with a cover that can be wiped down or it can be easily removed and put in the dishwasher. The cover clips on both sides that makes it easy for parents to remove the tray but kids cannot. Once it’s unclipped, you can put it in the dishwasher and wash it clean with your other dishes. If you choose not to use the cover, then you can easily wipe down the tray as you would on any high chair with the same solution you use to wipe down the rest of the chair.
Storing the Chair

Storing the Chair

The one thing that parents must consider when purchasing the Boon Flair High Chair is that you cannot really store it. Where most high chairs have the capability to fold up and be put away for future use, the Boon Flair High Chair does not fold. When many parents look at the high chair they will immediately think that it’s oversized and bulky, however, the base of the chair is only about 23 inches wide, which is smaller than a normal dining room chair. So, appearances are deceptive with this chair. It is recommended that you have a great place to keep the chair out of the way or pick a color scheme that fits your kitchen decor so that the chair can become a part of your kitchen’s aesthetic and can be kept out at all times.
The Pneumatic Lift

The Pneumatic Lift

The most prominent feature of the Boon Flair High Chair is the pneumatic lift mechanism that allows for the chair to go up and down at any level to fit any table or counter. There is a button on the base of the chair that once pressed releases the lift so that you can adjust the chair to whatever height is necessary. The lift works on air pressure, so when the lift is released there is almost no sound as you adjust the height of the chair. The chair can get low enough to fit under an ordinary kitchen or dining room table, and it can get tall enough to fit an any kitchen counter. Once the chair is in place, the button can be released and the chair will lock at that particular height.
The Chair Brake

The Chair Brake

The Boon Flair High Chair comes with a break that keeps the chair in one spot as your child is eating. The brake is a step brake that once you press on it will lock the six urethane casters that are located underneath the base. To release the brake, all you have to do is press on the pedal again and the wheels will unlock and you can move the chair to any other place you desire with ease. The Boon Flair High Chair weighs around thirty pounds, so it is easy to push with very little effort. It should be noted for safety that even though the wheels are locked the chair can still be pushed. Your child will not be able to move the chair themself while they are sitting in the chair, but another child with enough strength can come along and push the chair out of the way. The chair won’t roll fast or far, but it still can be moved.
The Wheels

The Wheels

The Boon Flair High Chair is equipped with six urethane casters that gently glide across the floor. The casters are made so that they won’t scratch your floor as the chair glides quietly and seamlessly across the surface. This makes it easy for when you have to store the chair our push it out of the way. By pushing down on the break, the wheels will lock and keep the chair in place. By pushing on the brake a second time the wheels will unlock for more movement.
Age and Weight Requirements

Age and Weight Requirements

The Boon Flair High Chair is recommended for children up to fifty pounds. Beyond fifty pounds the chair is no longer safe because your child will become too heavy for the chair to maintain its balance and your child will become too heavy for the chair to move up and down. The weight of your child will simply cause the chair to sink to its lowest level.

It is also recommended that children over the age of four-years-old do not use the chair either as this age is a pivotal time for them to learn how to sit at a proper table in a proper chair. The high chair has only been developed for children who need to be fed or do not have the skills necessary to sit at a normal table and eat with their family. By the age of four, your child should be able to eat with their family.
Price

Price

The Boon Flair High Chair is not cheap. It is one of the higher priced high chairs on the market, but you do get what you pay for. For the high price of the chair, you do get a chair that is designed to be easily cleaned, which helps prolong the life of the chair, so in the long run, the chair becomes more of an investment than an expensive buy.
Conclusion

Conclusion

Although only available at a high price, the Boon Flair High Chair is an investment that can last you through many children. The easy-to-keep-up design of the chair helps add to the lifespan of the product, which allows for the use of the chair by multiple children. It is easy to move, brake, and adjust so that no matter what your needs, you can get the chair into a position that suits your needs best. The tray cover also gives extra protection to the chair that also keeps its appearance looking like brand new. Although the chair may not fit into the aesthetic of every kitchen, a color scheme can be chosen that can help the chair blend in nicely to whatever decor you have in your kitchen. With so much ease in use, the Boon Flair High Chair is a great purchase for the parent who plans on having multiple children and needs a high chair that will stand the test of time. The investment made into this chair is a wise investment and should be considered by all parents who can fit this kind of product into their budget.
