It has a 5-point safety harness, a generous tray, and converts into a cute little toddler chair once the time is right. High chair or “my chair” the choice is yours as your little one grows.

Clikk High Chair If you are sparse on space than you will love the Clikk High Chair from Stokke. If you are living in a condo or have a small eat-in kitchen we love that you can disassemble the chair between meals which is one of the reasons we’ve featured it in “6 Must-Haves for Small Space Living”. You don’t need any tools to assemble, the legs and tray simply “clikk” into place in seconds which is how this chair got its name.
It comes in four pretty colours and offers three configurations for optimal seating at each age. You can also choose to purchase a cushion [sold separately] to up the comfy cozy factor.

City Bistro High ChairBaby Jogger has jumped into the home space and we are quite impressed with the thoughtfully designed City Bistro High Chair. It has a modern black frame and plush grey seat padding that is machine washable, removable, and stain-resistant. We love that you can easily snap off the fabric and throw it in the wash if required—and believe us – it will be required when baby gets ahold of the spoon. The padding makes this chair cozy for baby when set-up but it’s sleek, slim, and streamlined when stored away–-78% smaller when folded! Did we mention that tray can easily be stored on the back of the frame when not in use and that it comes with an adjustable calf rest?
