Best High Chairs

A high chair is a must-have for most parents once a baby starts eating solids. With many high chairs on the market featuring all the bells and whistles, it may be hard to choose the one that you think will be best for your family. To help navigate your way through what is and isn’t necessary, I always tell parents that my top three high chair features are:

1) Easy to clean

2) An easy-to-remove tray (and a snap on tray liner is always a great bonus!)

3) If it will grow with your child without sacrificing quality, you have found gold.

Whether you are looking for a full-featured, compact or just great-to-look at high chair, here are our favorites.

Chicco Stack 3 n 1 High Chair

The new Chicco Stack 3-in-1 High Chair has all of my must-have features. This multi-stage highchair features 3 different modes to grow with your child, and is suitable for babies 6 months up to children 3+ (60 lbs).

It starts out as a full-featured high chair, then converts to a booster seat and finally can be used as a youth stool for your child 3 and up. So instead of having to store it away when your baby outgrows the typical full-size high chair stage around their second birthday, the Chicco Stack is just getting started.

Chicco Stack High Chair

What We Like Best:

  1. Grows with your child in 3 different modes.
  2. Easy to clean.
  3. Tray gets close to baby so food doesn’t drop onto their lap.
  4. Seat reclines.
  5. Turns into a space-saving chair that attaches to a dining chair.


Stokke Tripp Trapp

If you’ve been a Baby Gizmo fan for a while, you’ll know that we adore the Stokke Tripp Trapp. It is rumored that all three of Hollie’s kids each sat in one. (We can’t confirm that though!)

The Tripp Trapp is not only a high chair made out of beautiful, environmentally-friendly wood, but designed to be stylish and last a lifetime. This high chair can be used starting at 6 months (when the child can sit up unassisted) up through adulthood. With easy adjustments, this chair grows with your child, making it a staple in your kitchen decades longer than a traditional baby high chair. Because we don’t like to put baby in the corner, we like that it allows her to join the family at the dinner table from her first day of solid foods.

  3. Easy to clean.
  4. Appeals to those parents looking for a wood high chair.

Boon Flair

The Boon Flair High Chair is not only fun to look at (think Jetsons-type high chair) but one of the easiest high chairs to clean we’ve ever seen! Watch the Baby Gizmo Boon Flair Video Review.

Best High Chair Boon Flair

What We Like Best:

  1. Very modern which looks great in modern kitchens

Peg Perego Siesta

This versatile baby chair is very similar to their popular Tatamia but is $50 cheaper because it does not have the manual swing feature. The Siesta is still packed with features that makes this chair great from birth up to about 3 years old. Watch the Baby Gizmo Peg Perego Siesta High Chair Video Review.

This budget-friendly, space saving high chair from Fisher-Price is perfect for those with small kitchens or who just don’t want a huge high chair sitting out.

This high chair attaches to a regular dining chair but has all the same features such as a recline, large roomy seat, big tray and more that you’d find on the bigger high chair options.
