Would you recommend this to other mums?    

First impressions of the Ickle Bubba Orb+ highchair are very good, aesthetically it is pleasing. The modern, sleek design and the quality give you confidence that this is an outstanding highchair. It looks high class and I would be happy to have this in my home. When you then start to discover its features again you realise the quality of the chair, the moveability of the chair is excellent, being able to recline and rotate is a practical feature. The strong structure gives the confidence to know it is safe. Finally the comfort is second to none - my child was extremely comfortable in the chair.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The oustanding feature for me was the rotation and reclining features. The rotation element of the chair meant my child could be easily placed in and put of the chair without having to move the base, it also meant that she could face me wherever I go.

Would you choose this product to win?

The design and quality make it an outstanding chair. It is an extremely heavy unit, however because of the rotation, once positioned at the table you would rarely have to move. The price is also a slight negative as you can buy chairs that will see children beyond three years old, however they do not have the same quality and design.

What changes would you make to this product?

The weight/size of the base. Again if you do not need to move this chair and it has a permenant place than it is perfect as you can rotate the seat for ease of getting your child in and out. However you would need a large space because the base is large - the unit has a big footprint. Even when folded it is still quite large to store.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

The chair is very stylish and I love the design. It looks lovely in the room and I like the colour. The seat is comfortable for my child. It easy to clean and the tray comes off without any problems. The curved design means there is nowhere for food to get stuck. It fils up slightly so storage when not in use is ok.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I like the fact that is is heavy so is very stable. Some highchairs look as if they might tip up when a child moves around but this is not the case with this highchair. It is easy to clean and the straps are very secure. 

Would you choose this product to win?

The big disadvantage of this highchair is the footprint. When it is in place by the table it takes up an awful lot of room. The base needs to be much smaller to be practical in a modern home unless you have a very large room. The base sticks out so much that you could easily trip over it. It is very stylish though and looks lovely.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would recommend to a friend, it is easy to clean has a great recline position. I would prefer the tray to be slightly larger to put more things on when I need baby to sit for a little bit.

What changes would you make to this product?

The one thing I would change about this high chair is the tray size, I don't think you need space for two drinks, I would take one of those away and expand the tray so there is more space for finger foods and toys after for when you haven't finished your dinner and need five more minutes eating your own tea.
