We received this as a gift and already had a high chair so we used it only as a toddler table. Toddlers are by nature messy little people. My children get food stuck in every crevice of this table and chair. I can clean the surface by wiping it down, but the crevices have to be cleaned by unscrewing the entire thing just to be able to get to the areas where old, nasty food particles have been jammed into. I just don't have time for this. In addition the chair and table have fallen apart a few times while a child was sitting in it due to the plastic screws loosening over time. For this reason when we decided it was finally time to purchase a new high chair, we decided not to convert this item into a high chair. We were concerned of screws coming loose and the baby falling out.It really isn't the best product unless you have time to tighten each screw before each use and unscrew the whole thing after each use for cleaning.
