At a glance: 

The Joie Multiply is where highchair meets table. You can mix it up from a maxed-out highchair to a mini table with every mealtime milestone in between and it has easy glide tilt which adjusts to three recline angles to give your baby total comfort. The Multiply height adjusts to fit quickly growing and developing little ones and to fit varying table and island heights with a total of five height adjustments.

How did this product make your life easier?

Charlotte: I love how this high chair grows with your child. It makes life easier as a mum because having this high chair saves having to buy a booster chair once they get older and then a little table and chairs because this high chair covers all of those stages. It’s really easy to go from one stage to the next as well which is great. It all just clicks together.

Therese: Having one product that serves a number of purposes and grows with your child is really helpful. It folds away easily, saving space and acts as a great aid during the different stages of weaning and eating. For my 2-year-old, the booster seat was perfect and I loved the fact it also converts to a play table, which he also really enjoyed. Great product!

Ruth: The Joie Multiply 6 in 1 Highchair has a number of useful features. It is designed as a run through highchair from baby to preschool. One helpful feature is its ability to adjust to 5 different table heights. It has a steel frame so it would fit into most kitchen decors. It converts from a highchair to a low junior chair and table. By removing the lower 1/2 of the high chair legs. The tray section of the high chair is removable and dishwasher safe which is useful for messing weaning stages.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Stacey: The highchair is really easy to put together and take apart. When we moved the seat unit to an actual chair it was very easy to put the small table and chairs together and attach it to a dining table chair. I love the design of the highchair, the colour of the highchair is originally what attracted me to it. I love that it has extra padded support for when your child is smaller too.

Hannah: I would recommend this to someone who is not on a tight budget when it comes to purchasing a high chair. It is very expensive for a high chair but it should last a long time with all the different stages. I think it is a lovely design – we had a pink cushion pad which was a cute design but it comes in other colours too! It was fairly straight forward to put together and was simple to change into the different stages. It is quite a big hair chair so it would suit a family with a large kitchen.

Rebecca: I would recommend the Joie Multiply 6 in 1 highchair to a fellow mum looking for a product that would cover all stages of weening and feeding for their little one. I think it offers excellent value for money as it can be used for every stage and beyond. It folds down to take up far less space and can be dismantled easily and quickly.

Would you choose this product to win?

Fiona: When the price takes into account all of the stages that the chair can be used it makes it a really good value for money. I would not personally choose this product but only due to my preferences for a wooden high chair that to me are more aesthetically pleasing. I also have a table and chairs that my daughter uses when her friends come round to eat which this product would not allow for.

Clare: I like many things about this high chair and it seems really appealing. It could also be used for a long time. I particularly liked how 'extras' seems to be included. We have bought a toddler table and an extra chair for grandparents which others could avoid this product. It was also very easy to use and keep clean. It also seems good value when compared to other similar products which are more expensive. My little one uses a high chair but is getting to the stage where soon a standard chair will be fine. I wouldn't use this product past high chair stage as I personally think children often like doing as their parents. Ok, this could be used as a toddler table but we have a cheaper one which seats 4 so can be used with friends. Would you be able to practically use the toddler table feature if you had a second baby? I'm not sure, as you'd need to use the high chair function, so sadly, whilst there are lots of great features I think for the price it becomes expensive.

Katie: There are lots of good things about this product. It looks great, is obviously built from good quality materials and definitely fulfills the job for which it was designed. However, there are also some negative points. For me, the chair is too large and bulky, heavy to lift and even when folded takes up too much space. In comparison with other highchairs on the market, this one would also appear to be quite tricky to keep clean, with various folds and corners for food to get stuck in. Inevitably for a product that is trying to do so many things, some of the seating options work better than others and I felt the booster seat options to be a bit of a letdown. When the seat is being used in the infant chair and table setting there are no straps available and this has led the manufacturer to state that this is only suitable for children over 36 months, which is a shame as much younger children would find this enjoyable.

What changes would you make to this product?

Carys: The price! It’s just too expensive and the instruction manual. I opened the box, all set to put the highchair together ready for our group to test it, but ended up putting it back in the box and waiting for them to come to my house, and we put it together as a team. Once we’d worked out what we were doing, it was fairly simple, but the instruction booklet made it feel very daunting.

Stacey: I really like this highchair and there are only 2 minor faults I have with the chair. They don't affect me enough to change the highchair. Firstly there are two wheels on the front so when the chair is folded up in half it slides forwards so has to be wedged against something to stop it sliding. I personally don't fold it away though. Secondly, once the highchair is used as a chair and table it is a little bulky.

Beth: The product was a little intricate to clean after mealtimes with a lot of nooks and crannies for food and mess to get into which was a shame, but it would not have been able to fulfill its other functions without these. It is also quite big and bulky but does fold fairly flat and is very easy to take apart and put together if needed for storage. The instructions were very long and complicated looking which was very overwhelming at first glance, however the product was so intuitive to assemble and transform into its different uses that I was able to do it by ignoring the instruction booklet completely and just looking at the photos of the highchair in its different positions on the card that came attached to the tray.
