Review of Graco Blossom 4-in-1 seating system highchair
The Graco Blossom 4-in-1 highchair is the highchair we chose for our daughter. The reason I chose this one was for its versatility. It can be used in 4 different ways. It’s a regular highchair, a standalone toddler chair, a separate booster seat, and a portable highchair. It is designed to accommodate both a baby and a toddler all at the same dinner table.
This Graco highchair works exactly as promised. All of its parts are very easily removed. It is really not complicated to convert.
Using this highchair daily, I can say that I love that it is made of wipe-able material. It is a leather feel backrest which can very easy be wiped down with a cloth, or even sprayed with any household cleaner(I use vinegar). The table top has a removable plastic lid that can easily fit into the dishwasher, or is really convenient for when you’re lazy and did not take the time to wipe it down right away. Basically, just remove it, and underneath is a whole new clean table top ready to get dirty.In addition to the above, if you release the sides of the table top, the full top comes off and reveals a much smaller table for your baby. It is far less bulky, and may allow the highchair to fit under some tables.
It’s really easy to put Mila into her highchair, the front button on the table pushes in well(you can do it with one hand), and it slides right out. I never take it all the way out, just have is looser and sit Mila in place then push the top in snugly towards her. There is a 5 point harness system in place if you want or need to strap your baby down. For younger babies, there is extra padding that can be removed for when they grow.
Everything is adjustable on this highchair, such as the angle your child rests to eat, the foot rest, and the distance between your baby and the highchair table. The highchair is on wheels, so it can very easily be transported to wherever you may need it, or can wheel it back to a tidy corner when not in use.
I’m very impressed with this highchair, it has a sleek looking design, and comes in various colors/patterns. I will say that I have not made much use out of the portable highchair option, because I’ve found a more convenient portable highchair that I will discuss in a separate review.
Overall,Graco’s 4-in-1 seating system highchair is very easy to clean, looks comfortable for any baby, and even without the harness, I trust that Mila is secure in her seat.(although I would never leave her unattended of course)
I highly recommend this highchair. In Canada it’s available in most stores that sell highchairs(Baby’s R Us, Walmart, Kiddytown, etc). It’s regular price is around $179.99. It’s priced in the mid range as far as highchairs go.
If you’re a person that likes to match their baby products, then Graco is a good brand to do so with, as many of their different products come in the same color schemes.
