I am very lucky to have come second place in Graco’s Symbio contest a couple of months ago and was made a Graco Ambassador! Which basically means Graco sends me fab products to try out and review for them! A couple of weeks ago we were sent the Graco Contempo Highchair this was perfect timing as Bugs was just starting weaning!
The Contempo was extremely easy to put together (seriously even I managed to do it) all that really need to be done was put the castor’s on, I managed to put them on without problem and then after about half an hour I realised I had put the back ones on the wrong way round! Seriously I am such a numpty at times! I blame that on having 3 kids because I was never as dizzy before ;O) Anyway we received the Contempo in Gorgeous Butterfly Blue but it does come in a couple of other designs too! If I was choosing though I would have definitely gone for this design! Perfect for a girl or boy in my opinion!
The highchair has six different height positions which is absolutely brilliant! It fits perfectly at our dining table so Bugs can join in all our family meals and I can also have him so low that I can sit on the floor and feed him too! It folds very flat and stands alone very sturdily once folded, so it can be slid down the side of a cupboard or something when not in use. We are lucky enough to have lots of room so ours just sits at the dining table all the time ready for it’s next use! It is very light too and I am often moving it around the house at snack time so Bugs can sit and snack whilst I get on it the kitchen.
The seat is lovely and padded and appears very very comfy indeed! It also reclines very easily to 3 different positions and I would happily leave him in there for a nap if he was to fall asleep whilst eating! Which many kids do but Bugs has yet to! The seat is very easy to clean and has no little nooks and crannies for food to get trapped in! Every single bit of it is accessible! The seat pad is also removable!
It has a really good 5 point harness and I am very happy that Bugs is safe, secure and comfortable in it! It comes with two trays one of which is removable and can be washed in the dishwasher! We are very very happy with the Contempo and can honestly say that I can not find ANYTHING negative to say about it! So not surprisingly it won the award for ‘Best Highchair’ in the 2011 Mumsnet Best Awards and was also spotted just the other day in The Independents Top 10 highchairs – coming in at number 6! Personally I think they were robbed of 1st place but still!!
