How it works

When the babies reach 4 to 6 months they are ready to taste and try out their first solid foods. Around this time parents among other things start asking themselves about the proper positioning and the place of baby feeding and certainly they are wondering which criteria should they look at, when choosing high chair. It is important to start feeding the baby in a high chair  as early as possible since kids get used to this habit and become aware that they should seat in proper position while eating. When you make an investment in a high chair then some things can not be compromised definitely and these are the comfort and the safety of the child. Comfort is really important because you want your child to be happy with the seat otherwise if forced to get into it all the time every meal can be a nightmare. Safety is definitely one that is on the top of the list of criteria. Some other things can be a matter of considering and reconsidering, such as the size of the chair, the material (wooden or plastic), or maybe additional extra features.

If you are one of the many families who always lacks of space due to limited living space but at the same time still wants to purchase lots of gadgets  and staff for the kids , you will be definitely interested in buying a portable high chair that has all the features of a full-size high chair but has much more compact size and it saves space as it can be mounted on adult chairs. Fisher-Price comes with an awesome concept and designed its Spacesaver High Chair to meet the requirements of such families  who need small high chair but fully functional one.

Product Description

Product Description

Fisher-Price SpaceSaver High Chair is another awesome product manufactured by Fisher-Price, a reputable company who has been well-known for designing quality products that serve the best needs and meet the highest demands of thousands of parents of newborns, infants, toddlers, and kids. The particular product has been designed to grow with your child meaning that you can use it from the very start i.e. newborn phase up to toddlers age and although there is no age limit still there is weight limit which is up to 50 lb, that is around 23 kg. Depending on the age period the chair has different positions: reclining position for the youngest, and when the kid can control the upper part of the body and he/she can sit in upright position then you can put the kid into upright seat and when the child is a bit older this seat can be transferred into booster seat. So in this context it is really a lifesaver for many families since it can be the one and only high chair you buy or at least use it for long period- from birth to toddlerhood, included. In addition as the name indicates the seat is also "Space Saver" as unlike the standard high chairs this chair can be attached to most dining chairs and it is perfect solution for limited dining-rooms and generally limited spaces. The seat weighs 8 pounds and the height is around 19.5 inches. The high chair features seat, seat pad, deep-dish tray and tray storage that is positioned behind the seat. This high chair can also be seated on the floor if you do not want to attach it to a chair.
Assembly

Assembly

The seat comes disassembled but the process of assembling is quite easy. The instructions come in the box and they are straightforward and easy to follow and it should not be a time-consuming process. To start the process of assembling you will need a small screwdriver. The main seat comes in two parts: seat back and seat bottom, both of them with restraint system. There are two seat bases with seat attachment straps that are attached to the seat bottom with the help of screws. Another part is the cross brace that is fit to the bases. The seat bottom should be in upright position when you snap the seat back. The process of assembling is generally finished with these 4 steps and then you just add the pad and the straps for safety. Majority of the customers do not have any problems with the assembly of the product and agree upon the simplicity of it.
The chair is also very simple to attach to dining or restaurant chair and again is a process that can be done by one adult.
Safety

Safety

We all know how difficult is to restrain a baby or infant especially if they have to eat something that they do not like or how relentless infants can be, so safety of the highchair is one of the top criteria when choosing one. This Spacesaver high chair can really save you space but it does it without compromise to the safety since although with compact size it is tightly secured with straps that are attached to the back of the chair where this product is fit as well as under the chair. This way the product stays tight and well-balanced. Of course this means that this high chair cannot be mounted on an adult chair without a back nor on a stool because it will not be secured enough. For the safety of the child the seat has 5 point system of restraint that is to be used until the child is old enough to get in and out of the seat independently, which is different of course for every child but generally around 2 and a half years. The 5 point harness means that there are belts on the shoulders, waist belts and a crotch belt that keep the child secured and create a feeling of comfort but most of all safety. The materials that the product is made of also contribute to the safety of the chair as it is made of BPA-free plastic and safe materials for the babies.
Comfort

Comfort

The 2 height positions and the three positions for recline greatly contribute to the comfort of the kids seated in the high seat and the parents as well because the options for adjustments can actually allow you to find the most convenient reclining position for baby feeding while the baby is sitting comfortably in the seat. The chair is sturdy and functional and the seat pad offers comfort for the child while the child is being fed or he/she plays in the seat or even sometimes takes a short nap. The tray is also large enough so there is less food that babies can drop from the sides as they have plenty of room on the tray. There is also a special cup holder where you can also fit the bottles so the baby feels really nice and comfy in the seat.
Versatility of the product

Versatility of the product

This Spacesaver high chair has two different options for the height, positioned on the base of the seat and usually the lower height is advised for infants and kids and the higher position works better for toddlers around one or one and a half so they can seat comfortably and safely at the dining table as equal members of the family. The back of the seat of the high chair can be easily removed and when removed the high chair becomes a booster seat for kids. The primary function of the high chair is for feeding the baby and that is why the tray is really convenient part since it is removable and at the same time it has multiple positions for the baby’s comfort. Two great features of the tray are that it has a cup holder where you can put the bottles or the cups and it has a special FastFinder Link (a kind of loop) where you can put different toys so kids can get entertained while in the seat or maybe put different things that you may need such as towels, bibs or related baby staff. This Fisher-Price high chair with its compact size is also great when you are on the go so you can put it for example in your car (disassembled) and go together with your child for a weekend without compromising kid’s comfort of dining. It does not take lots of space when stored.When the kids grow up and can hold their head, neck and the upper body under control, this seat can be transferred in the upright seat where kids can sit comfortably and play. When the kid reaches the toddler years the high chair can easily become a toddler booster seat by removing the back seat and the tray. The different functions of the seat really appeal to the parents as they kind of guarantee that the seat is going to be used for at least 2 years and majority of the customers actually claim that this period is even longer.
Care and Maintenance

Care and Maintenance

When babies are involved we always expect a mess especially in the period when the babies are learning how to eat by themselves and they are expressing their independence and want to eat on their own. Since this product is also used as a booster chair and can be taken into the car or it is also used for the baby to sit and play in it, it is more than important for parents and caregivers to maintain and take care of the seat easily. The seat, the back of the seat and the straps can be cleaned and wiped with a damp cloth and mild soap. If the seat is very dirty then you can clean it with water. The seat pad and all the straps that actually make the restraint system can be removed and washed in a washing machine. They really do not stain and if there are some stains on the cover than they do come off very easy.The tray can also be wipe-cleaned or rinsed with water and even it is possible and safe to put it in a dishwasher.
If you want to disassemble the high chair in order to clean it completely it also can be easily done and it does not require a long time or there is no bug hassle about it.
Value

Value

This high seat chair can be found at almost any retailer store but if you want to choose from a range of different designs you should definitely try Amazon. The average price of this product is in the mid-range (slightly less than 50$) and it is definitely worth the price taking into account the versatility of the product, the longevity of use, boosted with great quality and all features that can be found at the other versions of standard, full-sized high chairs that cost way more. The seat is equipped with a pad and if you want to purchase additional one for replacement that you can use while the original one is being washed you can purchase the covers separately for price around 12-15 dollars and again you can choose from an array of colors and patterns.

Bottom line

Fisher-Price SpaceSaver High Chair is an ideal product for families who are limited when it comes to space and storage places but they would like to purchase a high chair that does not lack any of the requirements possessed by the full size high chairs. What is really great about this product is its ease of use, regarding the set up of the chair as well as the options for three positions for reclining and two for height adjustment that make it a perfect chair for use for newborns up to toddlers as the product can grow as the baby grows. Furthermore this seat has 5 harness points that guarantee the babies safety when they are seated in the chair. Extra feature that parents really appreciate is that the seat pad is machine washable and the tray can be put in a dishwasher machine. The seat is extremely comfortable, sturdy and durable and definitely for such an awesome product it has an affordable price since you get a product that satisfies all the requirements that are also imposed on any standard high-chair.
