A stylish highchair featuring a rotating seat. A memory foam seat insert makes it comfy, and the tilting backrest is handy for a post-meal snooze. It folds to two pieces for compact storage or travel use. The height setting and footrest are adjustable, and the food tray is removable. Seat inserts are available in six colours.

Tested by Tami Anderson, 33, mum to Edith, six months. She says:

This was the hardest to assemble – it took about 15 minutes and some choice words! It’s awkward to fold too, so not ideal if you need to store it between meals. The rotating feature is brilliant, however, meaning Edith can see me wherever I am without me having to drag the chair about. I had to prop her up with cushions, though. The removable liner makes cleaning easy. 

Tested by Sarah Smith, 36, mum to Ralph, 12 months. She says:

Really fiddly and time-consuming to assemble – don’t do it when your baby’s hungry! It’s awkwardly designed, and Ralph was constantly knocking his beaker onto the floor. The footrest is flimsy and easily kicked off, and it’s hard to fold. On the plus side, I love the high seat position, and it takes up minimal floor space – Daddy didn’t trip over this one!

Tested by Baccara Gallacher, 22, mum to Indie, 21 months. She says:

This stood out like a sore thumb in my modest house. And talking of sore digits, I stubbed my toe on the base repeatedly. It was very versatile and easy to clean, though, and Indie did seem very comfortable in it, which was down to the adjustable seat position. But it seems rigid, plasticky and overpriced. It was impractical for daily use in our house.
