A few weeks ago we were asked to try out the new OXO Tot Seedling Highchair and as we're huge fans of the OXO Tot feeding range we jumped at the chance. I'm going to be writing a few posts about the highchair so this first post is just going to introduce it and tell you about it's features.
My first impression of the Seedling was how simple the design is, it comes in a choice of three contemporary colours graphite, mocha and green (we chose graphite because I'm obsessed with grey at the moment) and I think it looks very subtle and fits in with our decor more than a really brightly coloured one with a busy design.
I found the Seedling really easy to put together and it only took about 5 minutes to do, I noticed straight away that the legs are spread really far apart which means that if you keep it pushed up against a wall like we do it sticks out quite far, luckily we have a lot of space in our dining room for it but that could be a problem for some people with limited space.
It's super easy to adjust the height of the highchair from in front of it or behind, there are 5 different seat heights so that you can position your child at chair or table height. The seat cover is wipe clean which really helps if you have a messy eater like I do and it's stain resistant too. Because the seat reclines it's suitable from 4 months and can be used for the earliest stages of weaning.
The tray depth is adjustable to accommodate your growing child and I love how the tray top is removable and suitable for dishwashers which makes cleaning up so much easier. The tray can also be removed and stored on the back of the highchair legs if you're using the chair pushed up to a table and the removable tray is stable when placed on the table or floor to avoid any messy spills.
I like how the chair has a nice big foot rest which moves with the chair so that Summer's feet aren't dangling and the Seedling is really easy to move around as it has wheels on the front legs which are lockable. The wheels are made of polyurethane so they won't scratch or mark your floors and the chair can be taken apart with no tools for easy storage.
OXO Tot very kindly sent us some of their fab feeding range to try out too so I'll be letting you know how we got on with the highchair and the feeding range very soon.
What are your first thoughts on the Seedling Highchair?
