Mother&Baby Awards 2017 Bronze Award

The Sprout is an amazingly designed highchair that’s comfortable and practical for larger homes. It's expensive, but will last from when you've weaned your baby until he starts school.

The OXO Tot designers have got it spot on with an appealing mix of practicality and good looks.The Sprout is a doddle to keep clean and is very comfortable for all ages, thanks to the padded and contoured seat that encourages your child to sit up straight. It's versatile, too, as you can use it with and without the tray. It’s just a shame that the tray comes in two parts as food tended to get stuck in between.

Solid and well manufactured, the Sprout comes in a great choice of colours and it can be converted by removing the tray, crotch post and harness to allow an older child to sit at the table. Suitable for children from six months to five years the seat height and footrest can be easily adjusted for height and depth and you don't need any tools to do so. The Sprout is not ideal for small homes as it doesn’t fold, but does have a small footprint as a space saving grace. If you can afford it and have space, this is a hard model to beat.

Tested by mum Claire Dooley for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This highchair has the ability to grow with the child, and can be used up to the age of five. The OXO Tot Sprout can be used with or without a tray, meaning that the chair can be drawn up against the family table, which is perfect for babies following Baby Led Weaning. This product is classically stylish, and would not look out of place in most homes.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The OXO Tot Sprout is adaptable, and height adjustable meaning that there isn't the concern of the baby growing out of the highchair for a long time. Visually the chair looks great, and so doesn't need to be hidden away when any guests visit. The timber construction is easily cleaned, and the seat cushion appears to be very comfortable.

Would you choose this product to win?

Aesthetically, this was my favourite chair, by far. However, despite this chair being capable of lasting a child up to the impressive age of 5, ultimately I prefer the Connect 4 in 1 chair, due to the fact that it can be used as a stand alone table. This chair surpasses the more traditional looking highchairs in terms of style and functionality, and allows the baby or child to feel like one of the family at meal times by allowing them to sit right up at the table.

What changes would you make to this product?

In terms of functionality, I don't think that I would make any major changes to this product, so any improvements required would purely be visual. The highchair would benefit by being available in more colour ways, for both the timber and the seat padding. This would mean that the chair could be chosen to match with more dining sets and decor.

Good quality, easy to clean and comfortable. Easy assembly. Very sturdy. Takes up very little floor space. The tray is very close which is useful for baby led weaning. It's very easy to clean and looks amazing. Unlike many baby products this looks nice in the home and seems very comfortable. This is a fantastic highchair, and given that it will last so long it is well priced.

Would you choose this product to win?

Highly recommend this chair. Easy to put together. Solid sturdy frame and seat. Tray a good size and easy to remove. Small floor print which saves space, it may not fold up but it looks so nice we don't mind. Great quality and worth the price. Great quality highchair which looks lovely too. Very pleased all round. Little one is secure and comfy. Easy to keep clean. Pricier than other chairs but worth the money overall.

What changes would you make to this product?

It does not fold down in any way but is not very bulky and doesn't take up too much room - plus looks good: real wood rather than all plastic and metal. Big investment, no fold or recline functions. The Sprout has no recline, so it’s not ideal for first weaning if your baby is still floppy when sitting up. Although the Sprout has a very small footprint it doesn’t fold up, and is heavy so not for those who need their highchair to be in anyway portable.

Tested by mum Steph Alonwy for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This highchair is very stylish. It looks like it is a very high quality product that will last more than 1 child. It looks very durable. My child was very comfortable in it. The safety harness was easy to adjust to ensure my baby would not fall out. My child was not able to rock the highchair which she can with our current highchair so I felt that they were more safe which is essential.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The highchair has a large easy to clean tray on the chair which helps to keep the plate and food on the tray and not on the floor. The OXO Tot Sprout is made of very high quality materials that will last a very long time, more than one child and appears as though it would maintain its retail value if you needed to sell it on. The highchair looks great and would look great at any table set, it looks more like a standard chair, it is made from wood which helps to make it look more appealing.

Would you choose this product to win?

This highchair appears to be made in very high quality. It is versatile and would look great at the dining table, it helps the child to feel part of the dinner table rather than being sat out in a plastic chair that identifies them as different to the rest of the family. It is reducing the amount of plastic being produced and used.

What changes would you make to this product?

It is a very heavy highchair that is not easy to carry around but this should not be too much of an issue in a household that does not need to move the chair. The weight issue is only small as great quality dining room chairs tend to be heavy and it would fit in well with a lot of households. The chair looks like a premium product and the weight of it adds to this impression.

Tested by mum Candy Evans for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

The design of the OXO Tot Sprout is real quality; the solid wood finish looks great with our dining furniture. This highchair is built to last and it is one I would save for future children. I like how it can be converted into a chair once my baby is older. The plastic chair and tray are easy to clean. My baby was very comfortable due to the foam padded chair cover.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Sprout made meal times a lot easier as it was so quick and easy to clean. The plastic chair and tray are a completely smooth design with no ridges, this meant any food dropped was really easy to wipe up. The seat unit also comes off very easily so I was able to wash it down at the sink at particularly messy meal times. This meant clean up time was a lot faster than with other highchairs.

Would you choose this product to win?

This product stands out above the rest as it is solid wood that could last generations. Although the cost is at the higher end of the market, it can last children up to 5 years so it is a great investment. I like the removable chair and the smooth design of the chair. The Sprout is so much more sturdy compared to other highchairs and it is fairly slim so it takes up less space.

What changes would you make to this product?

The Sprout cannot be folded, so although it is a slimmer design, it is not possible to fold it away to store. It is also very heavy so it is hard to move once built.

Tested by mum Maria Xydhias-Mace for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The good points: It's easy to clean; everything's easy wipe and the seat pads all come off for the thorough clean when you feel like it. The tray is just so simple - goes on and off with one hand, really easy to get little one in and out as a result (and the remnants of lunch/dinner out afterwards). It's adaptable: works as a highchair, then the central (between the legs piece) comes out to make it a child chair when they're older.it'so really stylish.  The negatives: the tray needs to be cleaned quite soon or it can get stained a little (always managed to get it off in the end so far though) and it doesn't fold, so not ideal if space is a big issues. It's also not the cheapest, but will last for ages and you get what you pay for here.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Easy to put baby in one handed, comfortable and versatile.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Make the tray table easier to keep clean.

Tested by dad Simon Bristow for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow dad?

For me, the best thing about this highchair is how it looks; it just looks to be good quality, with a good wood finish that is hard wearing.  It's evidently solid, our two-year old can climb into it easily by herself.  Unlike some wooden chairs, it comes with padding that can be removed to help clean the chair fully after the little one has made a mess!

How does this product make your life easier as a dad?

Unlike some wooden chairs, raising and lowering the height is a lot easier.  This has been particularly helpful with two young children 18 months apart, when one keeps changing their mind about which chair to sit in, so its user is frequently alternated.  The ease for fitting and removing the tray table is also very easy when being forced to operate one-handed.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Whilst it is a positive that the cushioning can be removed easily for cleaning (with the help of velcro), it does often present an amusing activity for our child to turn around in the highchair and to try to pull it off.  More velcro might help this, or it might present a more interesting challenge.  Other than that, not sure how to get around it, as the concept is generally quite useful.

Tested by mum Emma Corfield for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The chair is smaller than it looks in the photos, which is great - there is no need to fold it because it doesn't take up much room. It looks really attractive as well, feels like part of the furniture and blends in beautifully rather than just been a plastic tacky chair which sticks out like a sore thumb.  I can move it from room to room quite easily. The construction is very clever - the tray comes on and off with one hand which makes getting him in and out of the chair very easy. And the cushions are all attached with Velcro which means everything is very easy to clean. It is on the pricey side but would be worth every penny in my opinion as grows with the baby

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It’s just nice to have a highchair that is part of the furniture.
