Fisher-Price Rainforest High Chair

The Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair is a great choice for parents who want a safe, reasonably priced seat for keeping babies and toddlers fed and entertained anywhere in the house. It's safe and sturdy, with a convertible three- to five-point harness, a three-position recline and seven height adjustments. All components are easy to clean and use. The only complaint it receives is about the childish, cartoonish print.

Ease of use

Great for busy caregivers. The Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair gets raves from parents for its completely washable components. The straps release quickly and can be washed in the dishwasher along with the attachable toy, tray cover and tray. All seat covers have closed seams that won't trap food and can be wiped clean. The tray features one-handed operation and the tray insert removes for cleaning while the tray remains attached. The three-position recline mechanism is also one-handed. Reviewers say this chair is easy to adjust, put together and store.

Lifestyle features

A multi-purpose seat. While some parents would prefer a less-childish seat theme, reviewers and parents say babies and toddlers love the Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair's bright colors. The included toy has push-button lights and sound that can be turned down or off. The seat's wheels allow the chair to move easily between rooms. Seven height adjustments mean the chair height can be matched to tabletops or counters, or as low as sofa height. Additional details include a towel bar on the seat back and a storage point on the chair back that holds the toy or tray.
