High Chairs For Toddlers
Getting the right high chair for toddlers can be an arduous task. After-all, it is an integral part of their day-to-day life in the most formative moment of a lifetime. But style, price and aesthetics must also be balanced with safety and versatility. In compiling this list, I have done my best to find the best possible trinity of values: convenience, safety and looks.
Little Partners Learning Tower
What do I love about this high chair? Well -- just about everything. Before we even begin to discuss the intricacies, allow me to say that this high chair is highly customizable and versatile. Before buying you will be able to select the color which best suits your surroundings, from natural to Royal blue.
The manufacturer touts the following features:
- The Learning Tower by little Partner is a kid's step stool that features safe, sturdy and non-tip construction.
- welcomes the child as a helping participant alongside parens and siblings
- Sturdy platform adjusts from 11 inches to 19 inches in height

Curiosities: Separate additions can be purchased with this model to transform it into a makeshift, puppet theater, fort or doll house!

The attractiveness of the Lipper High Chair is its high functionality and affordable price. The frame comes in two colors, cherry and pecan, and is very simple to assemble and transport. The chair was designed for children weighing up to 35 pounds, from 1 to 3 and half years old (generally).

Stokke Tripp Trapp® Highchair
The "Tripp Trapp" high chair is a multi-award winning high chair that has become renowned for its sturdiness, unique looks and high versatility. The point is, the manufacturer explains, that children grow. With this in mind, the high chair is designed to grow with your child by an adjustable footrest that allows children to shift their weight more comfortably (less squirming!)

Svan's Youth Chair in Mahogany is a triumph of aesthetics and convenience. This chair will grow with you child similarly to the Tripp Trapp. Don't be fooled however, Svan have claimed that despite its amazing looks, the emphasis was on versatility and safety.
