I bought this chair with the intention of using it when we went to people's homes and out to the park, instead of lugging along a full size highchair. Not the best choice. Everywhere we took it, it either didn't fit the tables, or was way too big for what we needed. It only worked on a picnic table and a banquet table. No way it would work on a dining room table. Definitely not designed for that. The idea was good but not the execution. The west is nice and comfy, big enough for a big range of ages. The seat washes up nice, just a pain to get it out of the frame to wash and back on again. The hippo clips are a cute idea but it would be nice it there was alittle more adjustment to them. Everytime it wouldn't work ona table we would always say, if only it had this adjustment or that adjustment. Depending on what you had the seat attached to, sometimes it seemed really sturdy, other times i didnt dare leave the table fearing it tip over. This chair would be great for some homes that have a bar area to attach to and you didn't want a huge highchair.
