The Skinny

The Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Booster Seat is a strong performer across the board in ease of use, safety, quality, and ease of cleaning. The only area in which it did not excel was portability, mostly due to its bulky nature. This is a strong contender to be a primary high chair for babies 1+ year with a max weight of 50 lbs if parents are looking for something that will take up less space than a full-size option. It has an adjustable, removable dining tray and adjustable height, so it can adapt to your baby's growth and development.

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.

Ease Of Use


The Fisher-Price is easy to set up, versatile, and well-liked 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 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.

The Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe easily secures onto a full-size chair for a family meal.
There are 3 height levels to accommodate baby.

Safety and Quality


When strapped to a dining chair, the Healthy Care Deluxe has a nice sturdy feel, excellent support for baby, a secure 3-point harness, and satisfactory durability overall. The hard plastic form of the seat resists wear and tear, and its high sides and sturdy back provide sufficient upper body support for a toddler. The snap-on tray provides an additional level of security when in use.

Portability


The Healthy Care Deluxe struggled somewhat in portability due to its bulkiness and lack of a bag. At a weight of 4.7 lbs and the dimensions are manageable with the included shoulder straps, but some of the other chairs we reviewed are much easier to carry. Chairs that can fold flat and come with a carry bag or fabric harness style chairs are significantly smaller for toting around town.

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.
