How it works
Quality is a desired feature in the products we spend our hard earned money on. Where do you begin to find quality products? Beginning at looking at the company itself and the years of experience they have is a good place to start. In 1949, the Perego family began their journey developing and manufacturing baby products in Italy. By the 1960s, they brought their quality products to the United States. They have stood the test of time.
The Peg Perego Siesta high chair is one of many quality products. It has been designed for comfort, for convenience, for style, and for longevity. It not only functions as a high chair, but it’s versatility shines through. How many times have we seen little ones fall asleep while in their high chair? How functional would it be if your little one could be reclined to rest easier right where they are? How convenient would it be to be able to wheel your sleeping baby into the next room with you? The Peg Perego Siesta high chair can do it all!
The Peg Perego Siesta can be used from birth until the child is a 45 pound toddler. This high chair can easily recline to accommodate an infant, and adjust to fit a toddler.
The Siesta high chair has a seat cushion which will provide the child’s back and bottom the support needed. The high chair even has cushion for the side of the child’s legs and underneath their knees. The plush upholstery will give even more comfort. The Peg Perego company has called their upholstery, Prima Classe, which means first-class. There is no better way to describe the high quality of this upholstery. The footrest on the high chair will provide extra support and comfort.
The Siesta high chair does not only adjust in height, but the foot rest has three different settings to provide for the growth of the child and his or her comfort. The seat is able to recline to a position where the child could lie back for a nap or sit up properly for mealtime. The ample sized tray can easily accommodate a plate and cup for mealtime. The Perego company has added the convenience of being able to move the high chair from room to room. It has damage resistant wheels to make it easy to move the chair when desired, and has an auto-lock feature on the wheels to keep the chair from moving when desired. The wheels will be to be moved by the Stop and Go button for ease. The high chair has a net on the back of the chair making it easy to store baby wipes, bibs, or even toys.
As mentioned earlier, the Siesta high chair is also designed to look appealing as well. This product has an appealing look to the metal used which is complimented by the eleven different colors available: Cacao, Noce (tan), Ambiance Brown, Ice Grey, Ginger Grey, Palette Grey, Ambiance Grey, Licorice (black), Raspberry, Arancia (orange), and Mela (olive green).
Ease of Use
Once baby is in the high chair there is a crotch piece to keep baby from sliding down while you secure the five point restraint. The harness is made of straps which connect to one piece, and are easily released with the push of one button. The tray is easily slid on the high chair, and easily released to slide off when finished. The tray is constructed with a top tray which can be removed for easy cleaning. If you don’t want to use the tray at all, it can be easily stored by securing to the back of the high chair bottom.
This model of chair can be folded up for easy storage. Baby staying at Grandma’s for the weekend? No problem, this chair can be easily transported because of the compact size when folded.
The high chair can be reclined to five different positions. The chair can be a safe place for a newborn to recline in while receiving a bottle and even nap. The entire chair shifts into the reclined position instead of only the back of the chair moving. Baby can remain secured with the five point harness, and no concerns of baby slipping out of the chair. All this can be done with the push of one button at the back of the chair.
This chair can virtually grow with your child. It can be used as a traditional high chair for the baby and early toddler stages. The large tray will help with teaching your child to eat using plates, utensils, and cups. They can sit in their chair while having a snack or even playing with toys. Family meal time has gotten easier to include your toddler with the Siesta high chair. The chair is easily adjusted up and down to match the height of your table, and with the tray removed, your toddler can be pushed right up to the table to eat with you.
The Peg Perego company has used an upholstery that is soft and comfortable for baby, while being easily cleaned by parents! They have made the chair available in many colors to suit your own style or decor. The chair may be a bit larger and heavier than others on the market, but this chair can be folded compactly for easy storage or taking it to Grandma’s for the weekend.
There are those times when it would be nice to have a seat for your toddler up off of the floor, but if you have to move to another room it can be a pain. With the Siesta high chair you can leave your baby or toddler right in their high chair, and move them to the living room with ease. No lifting or dragging. Just with the push of the buttons on the chair, you can wheel your child were you need them to be. The wheels are designed to avoid damaging your flooring as well. Once your baby is where you desire, the minute you release the buttons the wheels are locked to ensure your child is safe and cannot move the chair.
The Peg Perego Siesta high chair may cost more up front, but it will become a great investment for your family.
