Over the last year we have been lucky enough to test out a whole selection of Phil&Teds clever products, each with its own little quirks and smart designs! So when Phil&Teds asked us if we fancied giving their Poppy high chair a go the answer was simple ‘yes’. The Poppy highchair design is not new to Phil and Teds but its ‘black’ colourway certainly is. Prior to this addition the Poppy was available in three bright colourway’s; cranberry, Lime and bubblegum blue!
So first up, the useful numbers:
Weight: The high chair its self weighs a tiny 4kg (so very light weight and easy to move about)
Height: Its 98.4cm tall
Age range: It can be used from approximately six months of age (exact age is dependent on you Childs own development, baby should be able to sit up and hold their head steady before they are high chair ready) and lasts until they are roughly three and then converts into a ‘My Chair’ suitable until aged five.
Weight load : 20kg
So what was my initial impression? When we unboxed the high chair my first thought was that it looked very modern and sleek, the materials and design are attractive and the highchair looked comfortable for little ones. The black colourway is particular alluring as it sits well within our own home.
Then we put it to the test….
Our favourite features!
Waterproof, wipe clean and seamless aerocore seat (comfy and no cracks for food to hide in1)
Easy to remove, large and dishwasher safe food tray
Small to store (just remove the two back legs for upright storage or all teh legs for a very compact storage)
Converts to the ‘My Chair’ so will last your child for many years beyond the high chair stage.
The high chair is easy to use and easy to clean, with a fully wipeable seat and removable dishwasher safe tray. Meaning no time was wasted on scrubbing the high chair, so I have more time to play with my boys! A mum lifesaver!
Both Harvey (two) and Jude (seven months) have tested out the seat and were both very happy in it! Harvey had pleanty of room and loved the addition of the footrest and Jude, whos only recently transitined into a high chair, was supported and had no problem eating and sitting independently.
For Jude we also used the addition of the five point harness, which gave me peace of mind that he was safe and secure.
But without a doubt my favourite feature of the Poppy is its ability to be adaptable and convert to the ‘My Chair’. Any product that has longevity of use gets a big tick from me. We have been using the Poppy in its ‘low mode’ to allow Jude to sit along side Harvey and eat, play and socialise with his brother whilst he is sitting at his junior table. Both the boys have absoutly loved this, its been amazing to see them interact together and its now a firm fixture around Harveys little table.
I am looking forward to when we can transition the high chair into the ‘my chair’ and use it in its next mode. I can certainly see the chair being well used in our house over the coming years and the feature bickering over who will get to sit in it!
Well done Phil&Teds, another great design and clever adaptable product!
