We don't gave a lot of space in our dining room, therefore chose this instead of a high chair. My little girl has been using this daily since she started solids at 6 months. It's super easy to clean and ours still looks like new (more than a year later). You can remove the straps and wash them in the machine. Make sure to completely remove the chair once in a while because food can get underneath if you are using it at it's lowest position. We have also used this chair for traveling and it's very easy to fold up and take along. It does take up a lot of space in your luggage if you're air traveling though. It's easy to install on the chairs and feels secure. I didn't give it 5 stars because the "cushion" it came with is more like a cover made of a thin piece of fabric you attach to the back with elastics . I removed that from day 1 because figured it would contribute to more of a mess than actually serve as a cushion. As you can see in the picture i personalized the back support instead of using the "cushion"..Overall it's a compact, easy to clean, space saving alternative to a high chair. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to save space or as a chair for grandparents house.
