The BabyBjorn Highchair

This is one of the easiest highchairs to assemble that I have ever come across. Seriously. You just take it out of the box, snap the 4 legs on and then pull the collapsed unit apart until it clicks. This is important to me, as I have spent hours assembling strollers, highchairs and other baby products, many of which also required calls to the company's help line. None of that was needed here.

It's heavier than it looks, which is good. The leg in particular are heavy, and that prevents it from being knocked over by a child (in or out of the seat). But the best feature by far is the movable tray and child lock. As you can tell, there is no harness with this highchair. This is because of the tray and child lock, which take the place of the harness.

When you place a child into the highchair, you should place the tray close to the child’s body. This prevents the child from being able to get out (it also inadvertently prevents food from ending up in their lap). Once the table is close enough to the child, you use the two-step lock to hold it in place. This is cleverly positioned under the tray, which keeps it out of the child's reach.

And as easy as it is to put together, it also folds up easily. When totally collapsed, the highchair will fit easily into a corner. Although it is fairly small to begin with, so there isn't much of a need for this unless you have a very tiny kitchen.

BabyBjorn has only had this highchair out for about year now and already it has won two awards. Junior Magazine awarded it "Best High Chair Design" this year in their Junior Design Awards. Practical Parenting also awarded it first place highchair in their annual Best Baby Product Awards.
