  • Choosing a highchair

    Is it comfortable, is it sturdy – and does it go with the room? A highchair is a purchase that can be with you for many years to come, and probably one of your biggest buys after a buggy and cot. Here’s how our mum rated the latest models…

  • Finalist: Brother Max Scoop, £249.99.

    Super stylish, the Brother Max Scoop is almost space age. It transforms to a chair to seat children up to 5 years old and a removable seat insert keeps smaller babies safe, too.

  • Finalist: Fisher-Price Precious Planet Highchair, £99.99.

    Jungle fun! Sturdy base, removable tray and animals a plenty to (hopefully) stop your little one playing with his food.

  • Finalist: Fun Pod Highchair, £156.60.

    Fun pod is a ‘pod’, which your little one can stand in to be near you in the kitchen, with an insert to make it a chair. The insert can be removed as your child gets older and bigger, making it a good long-term option.
