Fisher-Price Precious Planet High Chair Review

Fisher-Price Precious Planet High Chair reviews indicate the design and features of this basic, full-size model are much appreciated. Stability, comfort, ease of cleaning, portability, multiple seat positions and heights, and colorful styling are some of its virtues, according to posts at Amazon, including one submitted by a reviewer who runs a child-care business. Parents say this folding, stand-alone model isn't particularly bulky and wheels make it easy to roll out of the way. However, we did come across some high chair reviews at Toys R Us and elsewhere about a challenging assembly and the included suction toy that doesn't stay in place. Overall, though, this high chair wins impressively high marks from parents.

The Fisher-Price Precious Planet Healthy Care (starting at $79, Amazon) comes with seven height settings -- all the better for feeding wherever the parent or caregiver happens to be sitting -- and three reclines. The tray can be removed with one hand and set at any of four distances from the back; it's protected by a dishwasher-safe insert. The seat cover is stain resistant and machine washable. The wheels have locks and the seat has a 5-point harness. This model weighs about 17 pounds and can accommodate children up to 50 pounds.

Although the Fisher-Price Precious Planet High Chair hovers near the top of our price range, it is a viable option given the extent of the seat adjustments and the easy portability. Find a sale or coupon and you'll pick up a solid deal on a solid piece of baby equipment.
