Travel High Chair | Polar Gear

Being a keen Jojo Maman Bebe window shopper, I'd seen travel high chairs before and thought they were a fabulous concept - whether you're heading to a friend/relatives house or a restaurant with inadequate high chairs.

We decided on a self catering apartment for our holiday this summer, so thought a travel high chair would be a good idea. You can often rent items when you get to the hotel, but the price would have been the same if not more!

We searched through Amazon and came across Polar Gear's 5 Point Harness Travel Booster 

It had rave reviews and only cost £14.99, so we thought we'd give it a go!

What we love about it...

1) The weight of it. At only 700g it barely makes a dent in your baggage allowance.

2) How securely your child is strapped in with a 5 point harness. Some of the other options on the market only hold your child in round the waist; this would definitely not be good enough for us as James is very wriggly and always trying to escape from his high chair at home!

3) It's made from a wipe clean material.

4) It has a handle when folded.

5) It has an internal storage pocket for a bib, wipes, spoon...

The only downsides...

1) James kept pushing himself back from the table and tipping his chair. We had to place a chair behind to stop him from doing this. However, I wouldn't say this is a fault of the high chair as this would happen with any lightweight travel high chairs on the market. Unless you have a chair with legs that would stop it from being tipped, this is something I'd be careful of. 

2) Not suitable for children under 12 months or those unable to sit unaided. I think a younger child may need a more supportive material. A product like the Chicco Pocket Snack Booster Seat may be a good option, but I'm not sure of the weight or how compact it is when folded.

Have you tried Polar Gear's travel high chair? Or have you got another product you would recommend?
