How it works

A five-star product according to the awards that it has been nominated for, the Chicco Pocket Snack Seat has it all. It is versatile and stylish, designed by Italian brand Chicco. They are known for their practical, safe and versatile items for babies and small children. The Chicco Pocket Snack Seat is no exception. It is functional with the concerns of both parents and babies in mind.

With your purchase, you receive the seat and then a tray that attaches to it. It takes only a few minutes. You take the booster seat and fasten it to a regular chair. It is simple and straightforward but very sturdy so that your child is not harmed. There are straps that attach under the chair and to the back of the chair. They are fastened together with buckles. You just pull the straps to adjust them so this seat can be used with almost any chair. Once your child continues to grow or depending on how large are your chairs, there are 3 different settings to pick from to adjust the height of the booster.

The Chicco Pocket Booster Seat comes with a tray that snaps on and off. So they can use that tray for their food or you can take it off and your child can use the table just like everyone else. Everything is made from high-quality plastic so it just needs to be wiped down for easy cleanup. The tray can also be dishwasher safe.

The seat is secure when attached to a chair and it has a restraint system to keep your child even safer. The safety belts will not irritate your child’s skin or annoy them when they are trying to play. In fact, they will barely notice them at all.

When you are ready to pack the Chicco Booster Seat up, all you need to do is press the buttons on the sides to fold the arms down. No need to remove the tray. The unit will become flat and you can use the straps that attach the seat to the backs of chairs as a carrying handle. You can throw it over your shoulder and take this lightweight seat with you on the go. Whether you are going to a restaurant or taking your child to a relative’s house for the night, this seat is convenient for all of you and your child’s booster seat needs.

Age Range

Age Range

The manufacturer recommends that this seat can be used for children that are not to exceed 50 pounds in weight. So that means you can use the Chicco Pocket Snack Seat for many years. The tray comes on and off as well so once they outgrow that you can just remove it so the seat just offers them the added height to use your regular adult table. The tray also has a few different positions to allow more room in case you do decide to use the tray as your child grows. The booster also has 3 height options that you can change as your child continues to grow. All of the straps are adjustable as well so that you can have this seat for many years. It is durable and well made so keeping it for a very long time will not be a problem at all.
Portability

Portability

When opened up the booster seat will be about 19 x 13 x 15 inches so it should fit nicely on most chairs. It is very compact and designed with thin but durable plastic to make it more lightweight and convenient for transport. When you are ready to fold it up, it is quite simple. You just need to push the buttons on either arm and bend them down. The entire seat will be flat. The tray will fold neatly too so there’s no need to remove it when collapsing it down. It has a carrying strap too so you can carry it over your shoulder while on the go. When folded the item’s dimensions are about 17 x 14 x 5 inches so it does get rather flat. The entire thing weighs just about 6 and half pounds so toting it around will be a breeze. This portable seat is great for when you want to bring your child to a restaurant. Not all restaurants offer a booster and when they do sometimes they are so inconvenient, clunky, covered in germs and uncomfortable that it is not worth the hassle. Most times parents will just keep their child on their lap, making it difficult to feed themselves and have enough space around the table. Or sometimes they just opt to skip the restaurant completely to avoid the annoyance. Parents enjoy how convenient and hassle free the Chicco Pocket Snack Seat is. You can take it with you and set it up in minutes without any worry.
Safety

Safety

The Chicco Pocket Snack Seat is quite safe as are all Chicco products. It has a 3 point restraint system that keeps your baby safely secured into the seat. To keep the booster seat stable, it has straps to attach it to an adult chair. You just need to put them under the chair and then fasten it and then around the chair back with another buckle. Then you pull the adjustable straps to tighten them so they stay tight around the chair. The booster seat will be just as sturdy as your char would alone with the added bonus of a safety belt and a little extra height for your baby.
Versatility

Versatility

The Chicco Pocket Snack Seat is a very versatile and functional item. When parents take their children out to eat it can sometimes be a hassle trying to get them to sit comfortably and still. Those bulky wooden high chairs that restaurants typically offer are generally very hard and uncomfortable and covered in germs and bacteria. The last thing you want is for your child to touch it or the table at the stage of their lives where everything ends up in their mouths. So parents often skip going out to eat in general or trying to balance their baby on their lap while trying to manage their own meal. The Chicco Pocket Snack is great for exactly those reasons. It is small enough to bring around with you and easy enough to set up quickly. Your baby can use the tray or just sit around the table with you at a comfortable eating height. The booster seat has 3 different heights. To access them you just need to press the button the underside of the side and the legs move up and down to the various positions. The feet of the booster are designed not to skid as well so it does not move around on the chair. The seat should only be used with a chair that is at least 14 x 14 inches on the surface. It should not be used with a backless chair or stool. The back must be at least a foot high. The booster seat will wobble and it will be unsteady if it is not secured to something.
Design

Design

The Chicco Pocket booster is very simply designed. It features a simple pattern of knives and forms on the seat part of the booster. It is available in several different colors including a few different shades of grey, lavender, orange and others. You can select from very neutral to colorful and bright. There is a color combination for everyone whether you have a boy or a girl.

The booster is designed to be very lightweight and compact. It is incredibly easy to adjust all of the various parts. There are two buttons of the arms of the chair to fold the whole thing flat. The arms are about 5 inches high, giving your child a little extra security on the sides. There is also a button on the bottom of the seat to adjust the legs to change the seat to the 3 different heights. There are straps to attach the booster to a chair. They wrap around the bottom and also the back of the chair. They buckle and can be pulled tight so that it is secure. When it is flat it has a strap to carry it around. There is also a piece under the tray that stops babies from sliding out through the bottom.
Maintenance

Maintenance

The Chicco Pocket booster seat is easy to maintain. It is mostly made of plastic but the legs are metal. Therefore there are no parts that can stain or need to be washed in a machine. You just need to wipe the seat down with soap and a damp towel. The same can be done for the tray but some parents prefer to just throw it in the dishwasher. After towel drying it is ready for use again. One thing to note however is that if your child is a messy eater, the area around the seat may need to be vacuumed or wiped down as well. If you generally keep your booster attached to one chair in your home all the time, it is important to pick it up from time to time and clean underneath.
