Reviewers and parents agree that the Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair offers great features and adjustability at a reasonable price. Appropriate for children from newborn to 50 pounds, the Rainforest is easy to clean with a removable tray, and it has good safety features.
The Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care high chair has a safe, five-point harness that secures the child at the shoulders, between the legs and around the waist. It can convert to a three-point harness for toddlers. Additional safety features on the chair include a wide, stable base, locking wheels and an infant insert pillow for very small babies.
Fisher-Price has paid attention to users who complained that it was difficult to clean the harness straps on previous models of the Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair. The straps now have a quick release function and can be washed in the dishwasher along with the attachable toy, tray cover and tray. The seat is well padded, and the seat covers have closed seams that won't trap food bits and can be wiped clean. Parents like the one-hand removable, snap-off tray. The tray insert can be removed for cleaning while the tray is attached to the high chair.
Parents find the Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care High Chair easy to adjust, put together and store. The three-position recline mechanism can be operated one-handed and makes it possible to bottle feed babies. The seven height adjustments allow parents to match the chair height to table tops or counters and to get the chair 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 the tray.

The included toy has push button lights and sound that can be turned down or off, The seat's wheels enable parents to move the chair easily between the kitchen, dining room, living room and playroom.
