Yes, it’s something that your little one won’t be using for a while, but it’s still a good idea to add it to your registry. If you’re not sure which one you should add to your list, below I have shared the top high chairs that include all price ranges for every budget!

2. Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair | $259

3. 4moms High Chair | $299.99

4moms High Chair

If you are into techy things and like “smart” products, this 4moms high chair is for you and your baby! As a lot of parents know, traditional high chair trays can sometimes be tricky when lining up the rails to latch the tray to the seat. Not with this high chair. 🙂 4moms designed this product with magnetic latches to make it incredibly easy for parents to attach the tray to the chair. It’s like magic! Also, the tray top is magnetic so it holds 4moms plates and bowls in place on the tray. I no longer have to play “fetch” or pick up extra messes after kiddos during mealtime. Thank goodness! Here are some other awesome features to this high chair:

  • Easy to clean, removable foam insert
  • 3 height positions, 3 tray positions
  • Removable, dishwasher safe tray liner
  • One-handed, magnetic tray attachment

Graco definitely knows a thing or two about good high chairs. This ingenious, multi-tasking convertible high chair has four distinct modes of use and easily adjusts to your growing child’s seating needs. It transforms seamlessly from a high chair to an infant feeding booster, a toddler booster, and finally a youth chair. It also allows you to seat two children at the table at the same time using either the high chair and the toddler booster or the infant high chair feeding booster and the youth chair together. It’s no wonder it’s one of Amazon’s top sellers! Moms who have more than one kiddo love that it’s one product that takes care of two!

This space-saving, sleek design has all the mamas drooling! This high chair grows with your tots from 6 months old to 5 years old–converts into a youth chair. We all know that eating can be messy–especially for a baby– so the chair and cushion are easily wipeable for quick cleanups of crumbs and sticky messes. I love everything about this high chair.

6. Evenflo 4-in-1 Eat & Grow Convertible High Chair | $57.99

Evenflo 4-in-1 Eat & Grow Convertible High Chair

This is a cool convertible high chair because it can really grow with your baby. From age 4 months up to 5 years, this four-stage high chair adapts to your growing baby’s needs and helps you get through mealtime as smooth as possible.

  • Stage 1 Position – A full-size mealtime high chair that puts child and caregiver at the right height and a secure environment for feeding success.
  • Stage 2 Position – A mini-meal chair lowered to the floor for when the child is more independent and wants his feet on the ground.
  • Stage 3 Position – With the tray removed, your big kid now has a comfy toddler chair to sit comfortably while looking through books and socializing.
  • Stage 4 Position – Converts to separate playtime table and chair for your independent kiddo ready for snacks, crafts, and friends.

The multi-use 4-in-1 Eat & Grow Convertible High Chair is all about convenience, safety, and fun with features like a removable and washable tray, washable seat pad, sturdy legs, and a 5-point harness (that can be removed in stage 3 or 4). Easy to use and easy to clean? Yes, please. Plus, it’s simple to adapt through the stages, and best of all, your kiddo will love it!

8. Ingenuity Trio 3-in-1 Ridgedale High Chair | $85

Ingenuity Trio 3-in-1 Ridgedale High Chair

This is a 3-in-1 high-chair design that adjusts from a full-size high chair to a booster seat and a toddler chair. We love that it’s all in one! The removable and dishwasher-safe tray features four locking positions to grow with baby and adjusts easily to remove. The high chair and booster seat includes a five-point harness and the toddler chair has a three-point harness to ensure baby’s safety. The high chair accommodates toddlers up to 50 pounds and includes a machine-washable seat pad for easy care. When used as a booster and toddler chair, the Trio 3-in-1 High Chair can even seat two children at the same time!!

9. JOOVY Nook High Chair | $100

JOOVY Nook High Chair

As many of us have experienced, high chair trays are hard to use. The Nook uses a swing-open tray that helps simplify mealtime that operates with one-hand. Without having to use two hands or line up cumbersome rails, mom or dad can easily hold their child while operating the tray. There is no need to remove dishes from the tray before taking the child out of the chair. Simply swing the tray open, unbuckle your child and off you go to the next task. This feature also helps keep your kitchen counter clear. 😉

We really like how you can easily fold and store the high chair in the pantry or kitchen nook, which will make your kitchen feel more spacious. High chairs have gotten bulkier and less kitchen friendly. With the Nook’s ability to fold like a beach chair, it opens up new opportunities for use at picnics, camping, friend’s homes, and at grandparents. Bringing the baby to meals anywhere has never been easier.

The new Nook also has a tray with four depth adjustments to accommodate your child as they grow. Many high chairs lack a big enough seat and this high chair is a roomy, full-size high chair with padded leatherette seat that accommodates a child up to 50 lbs. The leatherette material makes it is easy to wipe down too. The Nook comes fully assembled and is ready to go, out of the box!

10. Fisher-Price SpaceSaver High Chair | $40

Fisher-Price SpaceSaver High Chair, Multicolor

With the Fisher-Price Space Saver High Chair, you get everything you love from a full-size high chair but in a portable size that fits easily on most dining and restaurant chairs. It has two height adjustments and three recline positions to keep your baby comfortable, and you can transform it into a toddler booster when your little one is ready. And, keeping this high chair clean is super easy, too. The deep-dish design helps keep your little one from pushing food off the tray, and the spill-resistant seat pad and harness are machine washable. Plus, the seat, tray, and bonus tray insert are all dishwasher safe, so cleanup is a snap (literally).

  • Infant high chair & toddler booster in one: customize with 2 height adjustments &3 recline positions
  • Dishwasher safe seat, tray & bonus tray insert for easy cleanup

11. phil&teds Lobster Clip-On High Chair | $89.99

phil&teds Lobster Clip-On High Chair

This easy to take on-the-go high chair is a fan favorite! Use it in a compact kitchen to save space by clipping it on the bar or your dining table. Or keep it in it’s bag in the car for use at restaurants! It’s so easy and portable.
