Mutsy (pronounced ‘moot’-sy), a Netherlands-based company that has been producing high quality strollers since 1935, has expanded their exceptional baby product line by adding several innovative seating concepts.
One of their new additions is the Mutsy Growup, a flexible seat reducer with base, which is otherwise known to us as a booster chair. This modern booster seat is made of a flexible molded soft plastic that is set on a hard white plastic base. With the attached harnesses, the Growup easily straps to any stable, four-leg dining chair.
Since the seat is soft (reminds us of the Bumbo seat plastic) it is much more comfortable for little bums than the hard plastic of other booster chairs. Unlike the Bumbo, Mutsy designed this booster with safety in mind by adding a 3-point harness on the chair to keep your little one safely seated, as well as having the ability to securely attach to a “grown-up” chair with harnesses.
Cleaning the Growup is a breeze since there are minimal creases for the food to hide in. There is a space between the child’s legs (where the harness comes out of the base) that can trap food and allow it to end up between the seat and the base. Since the comfy seat can be lifted partly away from the base, the food can easily be cleaned out though.
The Growup doesn’t fold but since it only weighs 3.75 lbs and is already compact, it is great for travel. It is perfect for grandma’s house (it’s much better than the phone book that grandma wants to use) or even as a full-time booster seat at your kitchen table. Since the Growup is more a booster chair to give your toddler a boost up to the family table rather than a high chair, it does not have a tray. We generally prefer trays for our babies so we think this booster is ideal for two to four years old. The Growup helps all those big-kid-wannabes sit comfortably at the table with the rest of the family.
This handy booster chair comes in four bright, fun colors: Aqua blue, Raspberry Purple, Apple Green and Mandarin Orange. Retailing at $49, the Growup can give your child a place at the table that they can be excited about.
