Our Analysis and Test Results
In 1930, Fisher-Price opened shop in New York, initially creating toys. Herman Fisher, Irving Price, and Helen Schelle were the masterminds of the company. They had the common goal of creating innovative products to stimulate a baby's development. From the beginning, Fisher-Price grew quickly and currently features various baby products, including toys.
The Healthy Care Deluxe struggled somewhat in portability, mainly due to its weight and size. Therefore, if you need the absolute smallest portable high chair on the market, this option may not be for you. But, if you plan on purchasing a chair to use and leave at the grandparents' house, the Fisher-Price may fit your needs.
The chair does not include a carry bag but has a shoulder strap. Although not a deal-breaker, we prefer chairs that can fold flat and come with a carry bag as they're significantly smaller for toting around town.
Ease Of Use
The Fisher-Price is an easy to set up, versatile, and well-liked option by all of our toddler testers. The booster seat fits most dining chairs and attaches with two straps (one under the bottom and one around the back), which are quickly and widely adjustable with simple attachment clasps.
Getting your baby secured into the 3-point waist harness is easy with the tray removed, and the seat has a sturdy back and excellent side support in the armrests. Should your baby dine with the tray, a second layer snaps on along with a cover to make clean up easier. If you're using the table as the toddler's dining area, the seat is adjustable to meet various height requirements for both your child and the table.
Ease Of Cleaning
The Fisher-Price is by far one of the most straightforward portable high chairs to clean in our review. The hard plastic can easily be wiped down with a wet washcloth or even taken outside for a quick rinse with the hose if things get messy. Both of the trays and the cover are top-rack dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing to retain the plastic's integrity and avoid chemical leaching. There are only a few hidden crevices where food can get stuck. The Fisher-Price's straps are the only fabric on the chair, and they are removable and can be hand-washed, eliminating the dreaded gunk pile-up.
