Greetings, new moms and dads!
Choosing a high chair isn’t an easy task. I've been in a lot of stores, read a lot of reviews, talked to a lot of parents and came to the conclusion that I really wanted to purchase the beautiful and versatile high chair Tatamia from the Italian brand Peg-Perego.
Tatamia is available in white, black, brown, red and beige. We chose beige. Depending on your request, you can still buy a replacement cover in any color. I think that's just a waste of money, though, since the chair can be easily cleaned. We chose the color that would fit into our apartment.
The multifunctional highchair weighs 32 pounds. Yep, it is not feather-light, but it does not have to be! The chair is equipped with a stable platform on wheels, which makes moving the highchair in the apartment easier. If necessary, a passive restraint T-bar can be used. The chair is designed in such a way that it is impossible to overturn or overthrow it. Safety first!
The chair is not compact. It’s big like a throne! But if it weren’t so high, it would not be so stable! I don’t care about its size, honestly.
The manufacturer assures that the chair is suitable for children from birth up to 3 years, provided the baby weighs up to 45 lbs. I do not agree with that, I mean not with the newborn part. It cannot recline completely, there is still an angle, and in order to use it with a newborn, you have to use a pillow. But I do not think this is such a big disadvantage.
To set the chair at the correct height, one must pull the levers. These can be found behind the backrest of the chair.
In order to use the chair in the recline position as a swing, two buttons must be moved from red to green.
The swing is disassembled with a few simple movements. My baby loves to rest and play in it. I’m going to buy a play bar suitable for this chair to keep the kid busy for a little longer.
The foot rest is also adjustable! Kids tend to grow, after all. Again just a few simple moves and voila!
The backrest can be adjusted in 4 positions. The chair is suitable not only for dinner and snacks, but also for relaxing! No matter if you use it as a swing or just in a recliner, everything is made for the comfort of the baby. But we also have an ordinary bouncer with more features like music and vibration, so we alternate them.
There is also a removable tray. It is so handy! If the child has made a mess, it can be easily removed and cleaned. The tray can also be cleaned in the dishwasher! But I do not risk it, because who knows how it would affect the color etc.
The 5-point safety strap secures the baby’s position. It must be used always, even if you are there! Because falling from such a height can be very dangerous...
The letters on the sides are not worn off yet, although many complain that they come off quickly.
A playbar can be connected to the chair. Then the restless baby will be busy for a long time and the parents will have the opportunity to do their own stuff. You do not necessarily have to buy an original playbar from Tatamia, it’s only important to find the one that fits. For example, our friends have one from Fisher-Price.
We have been using the chair for 10 months and we are still 100% satisfied with it! The high chair absolutely justifies its price.
Thanks for reading my review!
