Vital Baby Unbelievabowl Set, Assorted
Been using for two years
Great system, securely stays in place (if, as others say you follow the instructions).
Do be careful though that little fingers aren't anywhere close when you put the base in place - there is the potential for trapping fingers so care is required (I speak from experience!). Once bowl in place it is all fine.
Would recommend and would buy again.

Complete waste of money
Simply put, this product doesn't work. Much as I'd like to believe that my 8 month old has super-strength, he doesn't. He can pull this 'amazing'' suction bowl of any surface with precisely zero effort. Save your money.

Good but read the label
So I though the suction came with the bowls but it didn't, is I had to go out and buy this as well. Suddenly comes a little expensive!! Anyway the bowls are actually pretty good and the suction does work if you read the instructions......if the surface isn't right though it doesn't stick well, it needs to be clean dry and smooth.

Fantastic once you learn how to use it .... try reading the instructions!
I bought this bowl and I was very disappointed as it did not stick well. I didn't take the time to read the instructions as it looked so simple to use - just stick the sucker onto the table/high chair tray. I found that it stuck for just a few seconds but then it would come away. I had ordered it online and was a bit frustrated that I would have to pay to return it. It sat in my house, unused, for months. I then took it out of the box and had a look at it. I managed to get the bowl off the base and then, to my surprise, I saw a lift up handle which effectively makes the suction cup attach very firmly to the table and high chair tray. It is fantastic and my little girl can't get it off. I cant' believe I was such an idiot as I usually always read the instructions. I am going to handwash this bowl as I don't want the dishwasher to affect it's suction power. Highly recommended.

Really worked for us...
Not sure what's going wrong for other reviewers- we used this product for my daughter for the entire time she was weaning- it stuck like glue to the plastic IKEA Antilop highchair tray (note- it is useless on anything but a smooth plastic surface though).
We had several extra bowls and yes, one of them was a little difficult to attach to the suction pod bit, but after a few uses it must have "worn in" as it was then fine. She wasn't able to detach it unless the surface of the highchair tray, or the suction pad of the product was wet/ greasey.
Sorry those of you it didn't work for, it worked brilliantly for us- recommended it to several friends too.

Must be a SMOOTH flat service to make it stick
I read the other reviews and I was worried that they wouldn't stick but my plastic highchair tray is flat and smooth and the bases stick perfectly.
When you first get these the bowls are really hard to get on and off the base, but they loosen after a few times and I found washing them in the dishwasher helped to loosen them too.
I've been using these for 4 months now and my kids have only removed them from their highchairs twice.
If after a week or so they base becomes loose, I just clean the base and the tray, with a grease removing kitchen spray and it sticks again.

Nice and colourful and good size but even the younger children have worked out how to undo it so there is no benefit.

DO NOT BUY THIS
Total rubbish. Unbelievabowl but not in the positive sense. The suction is poor. My son can remove it from the table within seconds.
