Scandinavian Child is part of the Svan company and they make the most beautiful and long lasting baby gear I have ever seen.
I am not kidding. I have tried since I conceived Lucy to get a Scandinavian Child high chair to review. I drooled over other reviews – like this one from my friend Candice. Finally. Finally! My time has come!
I get to tell you all about the new Signet high chair that was just released in February. The beauty of this chair is the wood, the color, the simplicity, and that it lasts from cute little baby to beautiful adult.
I need more of these, my kids are always fighting over who gets to sit in the “new chair.”
There are two types of Signet high chairs available. I was sent the first one – the Signet Essential. The Signet Complete chair comes with all the attachments to make it a high chair for small babies. Hence the word complete – it completely grows with your baby to teens.
I was so excited when I got to choose not to get the tray accessories. Lucy prefers to sit at the table with the rest of the family and this chair fits her like a glove so she can.
This chair is 100% adjustable – even the foot rest. So Lucy’s little piggies can rest on the footrest, unlike if she was in a booster seat strapped to the chair.
I cannot say enough good things about the thin profile of this chair. It has such a sleek, modern look to it. It doesn’t look like a bulky, plastic high chair – because it is not bulky nor plastic. It is thin and wood and beautiful.
This Signet Essential Chair is $200 and worth every. single. dime.
This is why I prefer this chair to a plastic booster seat you strap to a chair:
- This is prettier
- It cleans up better (no food falling underneath the booster seat and getting gross)
- It keeps my other chairs nicer. A booster seat strapped to a chair cuts the life of the chair down quite a bit.
- No need to store or get rid of booster seats – this chair grows with your child.
- It is wood, not plastic. I just love wood products more for sustainability
The only drawbacks of this chair compared to others is that it does not have wheels and it does not fold up for storage, you have to take it apart. However, since it grows with your child and can hold teens, there is really no need to store it. And as for the wheels – I had a high chair with wheels. Baby Lucy was pushed around my kitchen by her brother and sister way too much. I prefer not having wheels. (This chair does come with soft pads beneath so it does not scratch your floor and glides smoothly as you move it)
As for assembly: It has an instructional video online if you need it. (Like I would). Somebody is handy and wanted to see how fast he could put it together. He clocked in right at 15 minutes. There are not a whole lot of pieces and the instructions are very clear.
And I am all about supporting a company I love with my money. And I love Svan.
