Restaurant high chairs without the ew factor
Surely I'm not the only one who's often grossed-out by restaurant high chairs? They're handy, yes, but they're usually filled with the remains of some other kid's meal.
This is just why the new Phil & Ted's Lobster seat
comes in very handy for restaurant-goers. This portable high chair
is a brilliant, fold-flat seat that attaches to most tables
with its "claws" (get it?). You just unfold it, screw both
sides tight and you're good to go.
It's easy enough to do with
one hand - trust me, I've had to. The buckle is a breeze to use and the
chair is nice and deep so baby won't be able to tip out. I also find it incredibly sturdy, and it can hold a child up to about age
three or 37 pounds. Plus the storage bag is actually really convenient for carting it about.
What makes it different than their earlier seat, the Mee Too, is how wide and deep it is, plus the nifty tray that slides in once the chair is in
place. In other words, you don't have to think about what was on that dirty rag
they just wiped the table with. (You know the one I'm talking about.
The only downside is that not every table will accommodate the chair. But most tables will. Which will make dining
at Grandma's house, the museum cafeteria and the park much, much easier.
And want to know what I love best? At least if the chair is
dirty when we stick our guy in, I know he's eating his own leftovers and
not someone else's. -Stephanie P.
