Life is not easy when you are two going on twenty. Miss Juliet is trying hard to get along with the twins but sometimes she is just a tad too young to keep up. While the twins are doing great eating at the big dinner table she is clearly not ready, wiggling around, hopping on and off and making a mess. Luckily we’ve recently found a solution that keeps everyone happy: the new phil&teds Poppy.
The phil&teds Poppy is not just an ordinary high chair, it is specifically designed to grow with your child and goes ‘from high chair to my chair’ in a flash.
The sleek, simple, modern high chair is very easy to set up, the legs and feeding tray just click into place and no screws or tools are needed. Fitted with a five-point safety harness the Poppy can be used from ca. 6 months onwards (baby has to be able to hold up its head). As well as the safety straps the chair features a raised bar in between the legs to keep your baby from sliding down.
The molded seat is made with an insulating, hypo-allergenic, UV resistant and non-toxic material called aerocore to provide a soft and comfortable seating area. It is also waterproof and can be wiped clean, after all dinner time can get pretty messy! The large feeding tray is made with the same aerocore material for easy cleaning, and to really help out busy mums it can even be placed in the dishwasher. Because the tray is seamless there are no hiding spots for nasty bacteria to grow in.
Once your child gets too big for a high chair you can convert your Poppy from high chair into a cool kids chair by removing the tray and shortening the four legs. The tray and legs just unclick and the raised part in between the legs simply unscrews (a smaller cover is included). The transformation takes just a few minutes and your new chair is ready, it’s the perfect seat for a kids bedroom, playroom or reading corner. With a generous weight limit of 20kg it can easily hold an average 3-4 year old (even my almost 5-year old weighs only 17kg).
What I really like about the Poppy is that it, unlike our old high chair, slots nicely onto the dinner table so she can join the big people instead of sitting second row. She is still confined to a high chair and her food stays nicely in place on the tray but she doesn’t seem to mind as much as before. I also love that the tray is rounded so it fits much better around her body, most high chairs have straight, rectangular trays so lots of food seems to fall in between.
Setting up a nursery is expensive so make a smart investment and choose phil&teds Poppy ($149), the high chair that will last well past babyhood. Poppy is available in Lime, Bubblegum and Cranberry.
