The 10 Best high chairs
Set your sights - and your seats - high with this colourful collection of seats for little ones at the dinner table

This spacious, lightweight, reclining high chair has plenty going for it, not least its large tray with four positions, its well-padded seat cushion and the handy storage basket underneath. It’s free-standing when folded for easy storage.
This is one of the most expensive high chairs on the market, but it boasts designer looks (with plenty of colour options). It has plenty of nifty features, too, including pneumatic height adjustment, a dual tray, one-handed recline, the ability to spin 360 degrees and smooth surfaces that are easy to clean.
This retro-style high chair has an innovative swivelling design that turns it into an under-table chair in one move, making it suitable for children aged six months up to six years. It’s not one for tucking away due to its bulkiness, but you’ll probably want to show it off anyway.
The gas-lift mechanism on this exceptionally comfortable high chair means it easily goes from low chair to breakfast bar level. Because the seat reclines to nearly 30 degrees, it’s suitable for babies aged four months upwards and the star-shaped base means it fits under awkward tables.
Crevice-free and with a stain-resistant seat pad and smooth-coated restraint straps, this certainly lives up to its name. The tray insert is dishwasher safe and there’s a height adjustment and recline. It’s also foldable for storage.
If you’re after something cheap, basic and easy to use and store away, this contemporary high chair is a fantastic option. There’s a five-point harness, a safety post and removable tray and it’s available in a range of cheery colours.
You won’t do better than this for longevity – even teenagers can use it. It doesn’t have a feeding tray, but the upside is that your child gets to eat with you at the dining table. With 13 different heights and an adjustable and removable footrest, it’s as flexible as they come.
Suitable from six months, this chic-looking high chair offers a bells-and-whistles experience for dinky dining, including the ability to spin round 360 degrees. Its practical cross-shaped base and removable tray allow for up-to-the-table feeding and it’s easy to clean.
The Sprout can be used in high chair mode up until kids are three. After that, a new seat replaces the infant pad, making it usable until the age of five. Versatility isn’t its only forte – it’s also stylish and free of nooks and crannies to trap food. The only downside is it doesn’t fold.
This easily converts to a chair and play table, making it a great option for those with limited space or who want long-lasting value from their high chair. Suitable from six months, it includes a detachable three-position tray and is made from sold rubber wood with a natural finish.
