I baulked at the price.
"$270 plus? You must be kidding!"I thought.
2 months on, I've learnt to appreciate this Combi Rashule high chair.
For one, it is a chair on wheels. Bud goes wherever I am (to the kitchen, to the study) in the comfort of his chair and my hands are free to potter about.
It's high so no back-breaking moves for me and the older folks.
The back of the chair can be reclined backwards such that it's a sleeping bed (shown in the picture) or upwards -- for a baby as inquisitive as Bud, he sure likes the view.
There is a tray (not in pictures) which the baby could use during feeding and the seat cushion can be removed for machine wash.
1) The wheels go forwards and backwards; front wheels swivel but have their limitations especially around corners;
2) The cotton padding, even though touted as having a ventilating system, can be a bit thick. Bud has soaked it several times with his sweat;
All in all, I appreciate the convenience this high chair has provided. Bud seems to like it enough and like most babies who get bored easily, he fusses ocassionally to be carried.
Would I buy a second unit for home? Very tempting but I am deterred by the hefty price tag.
