As the title my pil are buying us a high chair - any recommendation ?

We have the Tripp Trapp and can not fault it. I love that it just looks like a piece of furniture rather than yet another baby item. Zoe has used it since she was 6 mths old and still uses it now for every meal as well as when doing crafts etc and she is 4 yrs old. We can't see her not using it any time soon so will be buying one for Noodles too.

We have this one that converts to a table a chair, my 3 and a half year old still uses it as table and chair now www.mothercare.com/.../482040,default,pd.html

We have three tripp trapps! Love them. Also had the fabled ikea antilop but i kept falling over the legs (and, lets face it, its pretty ugly).

I've got the Ikea Antilop highchair, It's cheap and easy to clean (I bunged mine in the dishwasher after particularly messy meals).

Another here with an antilop after a brief spell with a Chicco one (how do people clean them? It was so huge that Alex couldn't even reach the tray and he wasn't exactly a small baby). However, if your PIL want to spend more than the £15 the antilop costs then I'd suggest either the Tripp trapp or, if you have space, a nice little table and chairs, A loves sitting at his table far more than he'll tolerate a highchair and it'll last them for years.

I'm getting this one www.mamasandpapas.com/.../type-i as its suitable from birth, has different heights and various recline positions. I love the fact it's brown so it will match the leather furniture! It's a luxury purchase for sure.

We have one similar to this and it's fab, it's been used for 2 children now and still going strong. It's easy to clean, you can take the tray off completely, the back reclines which is handy if they fall asleep in it and you can raise and lower the frame too (although embarrassingly I only discovered it did this after I'd had it for around 2 years lol)

Another here with the Antilop, can't fault it

We have the ikea antilop too. Cannot fault it.

Another with the now legendary ikea antilop. Love it.
It's really easy to wipe clean (especially good for blw), the legs come off in about two seconds if you want to put it away/transport it and I like the way the design looks. Plus it's an absolute bargain!

I'm going to buy a Tripp trapp one, my nephews have them and they are brilliant. Really comfortable for adults even! I had a big heavy fancy one for N and sold it after three weeks as it was so cumbersome, bought a simple one for £25 from Argos and it was so much easier.

Another Antilop lover here. Agree that the Tripp trapp one is good, but better when they are bigger ( Antilop you can get inflatable insert -mine sat his his at 4mo so he could play with toys whilst we ate meals).
Why not get them to get something like a Handysitt? We have 2! We use ours when eating out, and now our boyis bigger, we use it at the tabke at home so we can eat together properly.

We had a super fancy reclining from birth altering height thing for aaron and it ended up in the tip. Love the antilop but we now have wooden ones which convert to chairs x

Another Antilop lover here, so much easier to clean than padded ones. You can get a blow up insert for it for when they are tiny too.
If they want to spend more the Tripp Trapp is lovely.

We have this one
Similar to the ikea antillop and again very easy to clean. I liked it because the legs go smaller so it doesn't look too big in my front room
