Closed! Congrats: Cynthia R!
Hayneedle is your one stop online store where you can purchase baby gear, baby products, furniture, children’s toys and much more. When I was searching for an online store to promote as the one place to go when you are bringing home a new baby I was instantly attracted to Hayneedle’s variety of products and the site is very easy to use.
There are over 200 stores under the Hayneedle name and I browsed the High Chair Store since I really need a new high chair before she arrives. I have purchased all my previous high chairs (and we have been through two so far) from garage sales and usually you can pretty good luck getting lightly used items that way. Not me. Both the high chairs I bought had problems – the most recent one the leg is falling off.
Browsing the High Chair Store is easy and there are so many high chairs greatly reduced prices below retail. For every product that has a customer review they are listed on the main page. I was happy to see the variety of brands they carry – and now they sell Scandinavian child Anka chairs for only $180!
I was sent the Graco Blossom 4 in 1 High chair for my review. Choosing this chair from among their selection was easy – once I saw it is one chair that can be converted 4 different ways I knew it was perfect for a young family like mine. My oldest is only 3 years old and still needs a booster seat, Bubs is 18 months old and growing out of the high chair. If you are an expecting mom with a small child (or two) at home this high chair is worth the money.
Here are the four ways you can use the same high chair. It comes with a Toddler Booster and the Infant feeding Booster seat clicks onto the Toddler booster, giving it the added height. Then, unhook the Infant Feeding Booster from the Toddler Booster and put that onto the Youth Chair – voila! You have a High Chair! FYI, when you open it fresh from the box the Toddler Booster is already nested into the Infant Feeding Booster and you cannot put it on the high chair with the toddler booster inside like that. I tried, and tried.
Here are some close ups of some of my favorite features.
It comes with three trays and I love that it comes with three! It has a small snack tray with a cupholder, a large flat tray and a large clear tray on top with a cupholder. The small snack tray has the large bar connected to it that goes in between the child’s legs and has the two pieces that insert it into the high chair. So while the snack tray itself is smaller than the other two it is still bulky. The clear tray on top is really easy to remove and clean.
One more tip: Push in on the large Graco button (as shown above) to release all three trays at once. To remove the large trays from the snack tray squeeze the red buttons on the side of the tray.
Look at how far back this thing can recline! Oh and the seat is easy to wipe clean. This padding removes very easily from the chair so keeping this seat clean will be easier than my previous chairs. It comes with a very fluffy and colorful added padding for smaller babies that David is too big for.
This is the toddler booster. The booster is very long from front to back so if you have smaller chairs it might not fit without hanging a bit over the front edge. I have smaller dining room chairs and it hung over by about an inch. I hooked it to my chairs and cinched it tight and when my very active toddlers climbed on it repeatedly I did not see a safety risk, but that is just me and my family. To be safest be sure and use the booster seats on deep chairs.
It has 4 wheels on the high chair and my daughter was able to push Bubs all around without trouble! I wish it folded, that is my one drawback. I won’t be putting it in storage for awhile, but when I do I will have to take it apart in order to store it compactly.
You can purchase the Graco Blossom High Chair from The High Chair Store for only $179.99 – saving $70 off retail!
