Summary: I bought this to use now my son isn't so keen to sit in his high chair. As such I can't really comment on what it's like with the highchair bar attachment on. As a chair it's great. My son can now sit at the table without feeling stuck in a seat. He seems to really like it.
Excerpt: We already had a stoke tripp trap high chair and was very pleased with the design type (wooden and grows with your child) but didn't want to spend as much second time around. Having searched the available options, this appeared to be the closest design for a reasonable price.
No feeding tray?!? DOH, should have gone with Beta

Summary: Let's just start with that it was my own fault for not reading all the reviews and not doing sufficient research before purchasing! I'm writing this review in the hope others don't make the same mistake I did.
Summary: I bought this chair for my 2 year old grandchild to move on from a traditional high chair and it is absolutely ideal. The first one that arrived had the metal bar missing,which is essential for keeping the chair stable.
Summary: This is a good sturdy chair, probably best suited to a cchild of 6 mths and over. Great when it can be pushed right up to the table and baby can join the company. do watch for the older child attempting to climb up and also wriggle out again.
Summary: We got this chair as an affordable substitution for the beautiful but prohibitively priced Tripp Trapp chairs. It's good to have a chair that looks more like regular furniture than hideous and often plastic high chairs. This chair makes it easy for the child to seat himself, and is adjustable.
Summary: I think the Hauck is the better and cheaper version of the TrippTrapp and is basically the same. My little one loves being able to sit on the table with us now and it seems quite comfy for her.
