I needed two booster seats, so I purchased the OXO tot nest booster (grey, on right in pictures) and the Fisher Price booster (white and blue, on the left in the pictures). OXO booster: Pros: very sturdy and well-made; comfortable, well-cushioned seat; one piece molded plastic seat is very easy to clean. Cons: expensive; seat is heavier and does not get any smaller for transport/taking along; food can fall in small opening for straps, making that area more difficult to clean; booster is only one single height (does not work well for tables of varying heights); no tray. Fisher Price booster: Pros: has removable and adjustable tray with inserts; height adjusts to 3 levels; folds compactly for storage or travel; lightweight; great price! Cons: seems more "flimsy" than the OXO seat; not as comfortable (seat is plastic and not padded). Both of these booster seats are well made and either one would be a good choice, depending on your intended use. Overall, the Fisher Price booster has more features for a much lower price, so I would recommend that seat over the OXO seat in most cases. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!
My 21 month old son loves this booster seat! He was moved to the big kid table at his dayhome and no longer wanted to sit in his high chair at home. He happily walks over to the table to have his meals in this booster seat! It’s easy to clean/wipe down and the straps are more than long enough for him. It’s very sturdy and doesn’t slip around in the chair.
I love this booster for my 18month old! Some reviews said it was hard to clean, those people never had a highchair I think. It's super easy to clean! There's only 2 pieces ; I wipe it clean after every meal and take off the foam to clean underneath every few days. Love it!
This is a pretty good seat, and my two-year-old doesn’t mind sitting in it. It’s easy to clean at the end of the night by disassembling the entire thing and wiping out. But if you want to do a quick wipe down it is not the best design as food gets stuck inside- all along the arm ridges as it is not joined, covered or connected along the entire arm ridge area. It would’ve been better if the padded seat part would have pulled up and over the top arm rest area as to not leave the crack exposed to the immediate droppings of every bite. You have to take it apart completely to clean it thoroughly.
The back is a little short, and my bigger than average two-year-old ends up leaning back to far to reach his back to the back of our actual chair. I worry that he might start choking on his food learning back so far, and have to constantly convince him to sit forward. I am not sure if this is a phase, and he will eventually just sit straight up, or if he is uncomfortable and needs more back support.
I think it’s a good chair compared to some others, but I do not love it. Until I find something better, we will continue to use it.
Again, it is very easy to assemble, once you fit it to your chair. So taking it on and off is a breeze. Just two push buckles. Also disassembling the whole thing is quite easy as well. In a matter of 30 seconds it’s in pieces and ready for cleaning.
Holy cow, this chair is RIDICULOUSLY easy to clean! OMG! My daughter's high chair was, to out it simply, the worst. I would get anxious just thinking about cleaning it. The straps would get caked, there were little crevices EVERYWHERE that food and sauce could get trapped in. I would have to sit there with a toothpick cleaning out all the little crevices. And then there was the "washable material" on the seat that, ahem, was bolted to the chair so as not to be removable.... It could take an hour to deep clean the thing. Excuse me while I got cry in the bathroom after that flashback....
This makes me want to kick myself for not switching her earlier! Even the toughest mealtime mess is a BREEZE to clean up. Legitimately, we had chicken broccoli bake for dinner, which, of course, got EVERYWHERE. You know how long it took me to clean this chair? Entirely? And I mean, taking the cushion off, cleaning the straps, the works? 5 FRIGGEN MINUTES WITH ONE WIPE! That includes cleaning the table top, too! HALLELUJAH! I'M NEVER GOING BACK!
Now just to deal with the anxiety that is my 20 month old wanting to constantly climb up into her booster seat on her own.
I am so glad we went with this booster! I read reviews on a lot of other boosters that crumbs would get trapped in crevices and this is not an issue with this seat. The top portion easily locks in and out of place for easy cleaning. It fits snugly on our smallish dining table chair. The lap belt is sufficient for holding in my wiggly 22 month old. It’s seat is sort of rubbery so not totally uncomfortable but not the most cushiony thing either. The back gives my toddler good back support, which I love since our chairs have an iron backing. It’s a bit pricey, but I suppose worth it in the long run!
Update: 7 months into owning this booster and I recommend it to everyone! I love how easy it is to clean, how sturdy, and how comfortable it is for my now two year old who enjoys climbing into it and buckling himself in. I’m confident this will last long enough for my daughter to use eventually as well!
