Graco Meal Time Folding High Chair Review

By

This model is the most economical in a line of Graco high chairs, with a seat that reclines and moves up and down. Parents like the easy rolling/locking wheels and folding design for storage and transport.

Graco Meal Time Folding High Chair reviews talk up this budget model's ease of use. As with other chairs we researched this one attracts positive notice for a folding design that lets parents quickly store or move it out of the way. Other features that garner praise in reviews at sites such as Amazon include a tray that detaches with one hand and a seat that slides up and down the legs (but locks into place, of course) for height adjustments. Parents also compliment the seat cover, saying the fabric is comfortable and the pattern is sufficiently cute. And at Overstock they note the ease of assembly. A couple of minor critiques popped in high chair reviews: e.g., the wheels don't roll as smoothly as they should and the tray is too easy for the baby to dislodge, which sends the contents flying.

Graco Meal Time Folding High Chair (starting at $77, Amazon) is among the most affordable in the Graco lineup but still offers desirable features. The seat can be set to four heights and recline at three angles. The seat cover is machine-washable, as is the feeding tray insert; the large tray can be removed with one hand. The leg wheels can be locked and the child secured by a convertible 5- and 3-point harness. It weighs 17 pounds and accommodates children up to 40 pounds.

A modest price, practical features, and strong reviews suggest the Graco Meal Time can meet the needs of high-chair-age children and their parents.
