East Coast Folding Wood Highchair
Beautiful looking product
This delivery arrived promptly. The high chair is a beautiful product - it matches our light oak kitchen table perfectly and the high chair table is exactly the same height as the main table - how cool is that? Now, the reason for 4 stars is that I haven't had a real baby to fit into the high chair so I don't yet know if all the comments about the straps being a bit tight are correct or not. We've also purchased a chair insert, which also looks nice (and makes the hard wood presumably much more comfortable) but I guess a very plump baby might find the space a little snug.

A truly nice product for a baby.
A great item for grandparents to have in their home. High quality finish, folds for easy storage, wipes clean. Having a grandchild sitting. safe and comfortable at a family gathering, allows everyone to relax and truly enjoy a meal.

very nice highchair
When I received this highchair and put my 7 month old baby in it, the straps around the waist were too short. I have contacted the East Coast Nursery directly and asked for replacement of the harness. They sent it to me within two days and the new harness is slightly longer around the waist and it fits our little one just fine, it even leaves a bit of space so when he gets bigger, they should still fit him. However, the straps around his shoulders keep falling every time he moves but that's not a big issue, I think. The highchair looks very nice, it is easy to fold and I even bought a cushion to go with it, which looks great. Overall, I was very happy with the service that East Coast provided by replacing the new harness so quickly. Also, happy with John Lewis for getting the highchair delivered quickly.

straps east coast high chair
Very disappointed in the high chair straps.
We have 2 grandchildren the straps don't fit and the children are only 7 months old.
How will this last until they are 6?????????????
Had a replacement pair of straps they are the same as the original straps too small, the chair is great apart from straps very disappointed as we can't strap the children in and is dangerous not happy.

The only negative so far, is that I would prefer the tray to slide out & be a little more adjustable. I've had no issues with the straps, but you do have to be careful it is not stuck under the seat.

brilliant and irritating
brilliant chair, wood is lovely, smooth, cleanable and gorgeous. HOWEVER, you can't get the harness off easily to wash it (ever heard of a clean-eating baby/toddler? No, I haven't either) and the harness is sewn in such a way as to easily slip down the baby's shoulders so that as soon as they can stand, they will wriggle out. Maddening - and potentially very dangerous.

Love this product but . . .
The straps are too small!
This highchair looks lovely, and seems to be very comfortable (we bought the recommended insert cushion).
I only have one issue with it and that is the straps. I was so confused by how small they were I contacted East Coast directly because I thought I may have dodgy straps. They kindly sent me out two extra sets which are slightly bigger but it does mean that once my Little girl gets bigger I will need to remove the cushion making it less comfortable. We will see I guess.
But it looks lovely and is very easy to clean.

Cannot be used because straps don´t work!
The chair is good quality, seems sturdy and hopefully will last many years. The problem is that we cannot use it because the straps are too short to even hold or 6 months old baby. I am very dissapointed because reading the other reviews I thought this problem would have been solved. When we realized that we colund´t use the chair, we called customer services to see if the straps could be replaced and it took them a week to get back to us only to tell us that the straps could not be replaced so it was either we keep it like that or we return the chair. It is a shame the chair cannot be kept, as the rest seems great and what we were looking for.
