OXO Tot Sprout Highchair, Green/Walnut
Probably the best purchase I made....
My daughter is on the small side (2nd percentile) and so purchasing a suitable highchair that she could fit into without being lost under the tray or sliding was a mission. Thankfully a trip to JL Southampton helped, and whilst not my first choice this proved to be the best fit for my daughter. She's loved the chair from day one and so have I, it's easy to use, easy to clean and she finds it very comfortable.
That trip was in summer 2011, and it's been used every day since and is still going strong! It's grown with us and my daughter who is four in March still loves it - I suspect we'll still be using it when she's 5!
I''m certain the one I left behind would never have lasted this long.

Good but tray stains easily
Bought this chair due to good reviews and our son finding it the easiest to sit upright in. Looked good upon arrival and good height for table ... BUT..... The tray stains very easily! Despite wiping it straight away with a warm cloth/cleaning products the edge of the tray is now very orange after only a handful of meals -disappointed given the price and the fact that numerous white plastic vegetable peelers/graters don't have the same issue.

I've wanted this highchair for some time but have been putting it off because of the price. When the green came back in stock recently, we finally decided to purchase it and I am so pleased we did. It's absolutely perfect! It's such good quality and looks great. It makes feeding my 8 month daughter so much easier, no more propping her up with cushions and constantly sitting her back up after nearly sliding out of her borrowed highchair. She fits in this perfectly and it's so easy to put together and clean. I wish we'd have ordered it sooner. It's such a lovely product and worth every penny.

Our son's been using this chair for more than 3 years, is still very comfortable in it, and I think he'll be able to use it for a while longer. He sits at the table with us at mealtimes, and draws and paints at the table in it. It's well built and sturdy and he can now get in and out easily on his own. A good investment for the longer term.

Whist this is not the cheapest of high chairs it has been worth the investment. Very comfortable, secure and easy to clean and wipe down. The seating and straps can be removed if a more thorough clean is needed and it is very sturdy and durable but doesn't take up too much space. The only slight negative we have found is you have to be careful not to submerge the tray in the washing up bowl when cleaning it down - as it tends to take in water!

oxo tot sprout high chair - excellent
I am very pleased with this high chair. It doesn't take up much space in our small kitchen and it looks very stylish. Although my baby is quite small, she is very well supported by the straps which are easy to use. The tray can be put on and removed with one hand. I found the instructions to assemble the chair were clear and concise, and it grows with the child. It is also very easy to clean. Overall, I am thrilled with this highchair and recommend it highly.

Worth the investment
Although this highchair is quite pricey in comparison to alternative chairs that I looked at - I really love this chair and I think that it's worth the money.
It's easy to assemble, easy to use and clean. I've read reviews about the table top staining - that hasn't happened to me so far, but I tend to clean the table area after every feed. My little one tends to chew on the straps, so they get a bit dirty, but again, fairly easy to clean.
The chair doesn't take up too much room. I've used a fold out chair at my parents, and this one is more compact. It also looks really nice.
The seat design is good. When my little one was first using chairs, he used to slip down, but this design helps him stay put securely.
The chair is designed to adapt to the growing child (up to 4 years# - as my little one is only small still - I'm not sure how this will work, but as the chair is really well made, I'm assuming all will be okay with it.
The only negative comment that I could make is that it is quite high. The seat is higher than my table, so if you were hoping to feed your child at the table, you may want to look into this #why I've only given this chair 4 stars#.
However for feeding right now #aged 9 months) - it's the perfect height, as I can sit in my chair and face him without having to stoop down. Also, I use the foot rests to rest my feet while using - which I don't suppose is what they're designed for, but are very comfortable.

I spent a while looking at various high chairs and decided that the two key points that I wanted were a solid divide between the legs to stop the baby slipping down and a high back to support and stop our little one trying to flip out.
The OXO tot is amazing, it is solid, well designed, a good height and our baby loves sitting in it.
The tray is easily removed for cleaning as are the pads. It looks 'funky' with the green inserts and we couldn't be more pleased with it.
It may seem a little expensive but I personally think that it is worth every penny
The best part is it will last our little one until she is five as various parts can be adjusted to suit the age.
