Review: Cosatto Waffle Highchair08:00:00
A high chair is an important piece of equipment. From first tastes to first birthday cakes. For the first year or so of your child's life, you will find a high chair can be one of your most used items. Now the most important thing, when choosing any baby equipment, is to find the one that suits you. You might want a high chair that can be pulled up to your dining table for family meals, you might one to last right through to the toddler years, you might want one that folds away nicely as a space saver. There is no right or wrong answer. There are however companies that try to cater for all aspects of life to ensure their products are loved by all their customers.
Elsie has been testing out the new Cosatto Waffle Strudle highchair, with a beautiful and bold apple print, which is a typical Cosatto print, the Waffle really stands out and gives a great first impression.
The Cosatto Waffle high chair comes with a fair few pieces all in one box and requiring assembly. Thankfully it also comes with a easy to follow instruction manual. If you choose to buy DO follow it carefully, I managed to put one piece on back to front and not notice until they end. Was completely my fault for being distracted but finding I had to take quite a bit of it apart to turn it was a little soul destroying. It did still only take me around 20 minutes to build (would have been much less without my mistake!).
The high chair itself is absolutely gorgeous. I have always wanted a nice wooden high chair that can be used for years. The closest I have got it our Stokke Steps which I use for Zach but the Waffle wins hands down between the two as it is foldable, has easily washable materials and so is very baby friendly. Elsie is a typical messy baby. Any food put in front of her will end up everywhere within 5 metres of the chair as well as in her hair, clothes and perhaps a small amount will make it in her mouth. Anyway you get the picture, messy baby, nightmare to clean after. I actually find it quite easy to clean out the Waffle high chair. There are no hard to reach places that collect food, it can be hoovered and wiped clean effortlessly. The covers are machine washable but in the few weeks we have had it, and have been using daily, a wipe over with anti bacterial spray/ soapy water has been more than enough and it still looks brand new.
I find the fact that it is foldable makes it easy to move around from room to room or outside in the garden. It was Elsie's birthday recently and we had a garden party to celebrate so she sat in the Waffle high chair in the garden eating her party food and birthday cake. She loved being able to watch over all the children while they were eating and playing before joining in the fun herself.
The Cosatto Waffle high chair is height adjustable. We currently have it on the highest setting with Elsie being so little but both the seat and foot rest can be moved lower as your child grows. It is actually suitable from 6 months all the way up to 12 years! The tray can be flipped over or removed completely for feeding at the table. If using the tray it also comes with a pop on plastic tray which can be washed easily at the sink. There is also a 5-point harness to keep your baby safe while they are eating.
Overall, I am very impressed with the Cosatto Waffle high chair. At £160 it is at the more luxury end of the market but it is most definitely worth it. It is cute and quirky and will hopefully last Elsie throughout her school years. With the 4 year guarantee from Cosatto you get peace of mind if your high chair develops a fault and their customer service team have always been great if you need to contact them.
