The Keekaroo Height Right chair is a good option for parents who want the style and functionality of a modern, wooden high chair at a lower price. It is fully adjustable and will take children from toddlerhood to adulthood. The chair is the basic purchase, but can be bundled with a tray and infant insert. Our estimated price includes the chair with tray only.
With an ergonomic design that includes a fully adjustable foot rest and seat, the Keekaroo Height Right Chair offers a stable seat and good support for growing children. The infant insert includes a chair cushion and wooden tray table with a passive-restraint pommel that goes between the baby's legs. The Keekaroo only has a three-point harness; it holds children around the waist and between the legs, but not around the shoulders. Without a five-point harness, it is possible that some babies can stand up and fall off the top of the chair.
The Keekaroo Height Right Chair is built with sustainable rubber wood and uses a plant-based lacquer finish, and the removable tray is made with BPA-free plastic.
The Keekaroo Height Right Chair offers all the cleanup advantages of a wooden chair. It wipes clean and lacks many of the nooks and crannies of plastic high chairs. The infant tray comes with a dishwasher safe removable insert. However, some parents say that they need two hands to remove it. The Keekaroo does require full assembly, but reviewers say it is a straightforward process that results in a sturdy, well-built chair.
The Keekaroo Height Right Chair offers a high weight rating, allowing it to grow with children until they are adults. The Keekaroo's simple, all-wood design fits in most dining spaces and kitchens, and the chair allows parents to bring the baby to the table for family dining.
The Keekaroo Height Right Chair is built to last for a lifetime of use and carries a five year warranty.
We are concerned that the Keekaroo Height Right Chair isn't quite safe enough for small babies because of its three-point harness. It does present a more affordable option for parents who want a wooden feeding chair that transitions to adult seating. From the baseline price of the chair to the cost of the components, the Keekaroo is far less expensive than similar wooden chairs with many of the same advantages.
