High Chairs: Decisions, Decisions!

The Fleurville Calla High Chair from industrial designer Yves Behar

They range from the cheap and simple (but worth it?) to the trendy and overpriced (but also worth it?). Who knew that the seat for our kids meals could engender so much agonizing decision making! 

Alas, most moms feel that the high chair they use can make a real difference in their lives. 

What high chair do you use? Are you happy with it? Do you have tips to share with other moms looking to buy their first high chair? Make your case (and share some links) in the comment section!

We got the Fisher Price Space Saver high chair, which gets strapped onto a regular chair. Our first apt was really small and we really didnt have room for any extra furniture, otherwise I would've chosen something nicer looking. The seat and tray are the same size as a regular high chair. I just wish it came with an extra tray (which can be ordered, I'm just too lazy)

We got this seat which is really a booster, but is like the space saver. We just strapped it onto a chair and zehu. Instant high chair. It folds up and stores beautifully. The only downside is that the sticky little fingers get all over the chair the booster is strapped to, but I think sticky little finger marks is just part of my mommy reality, you know?

We got the graco wooden highchair, yes, it doesn't recline, but we get soooo many compliments on the way it looks, it's my princess's throne! it's very reasonably priced, and made from beautiful solid cherry wood!! definitely a good investment! we love bringing it to the shabbos table! it matches our cherry wood furniture beautifully!!

Rivki (Kumer), how do you deal with the fact that it doesn't roll? I would go nuts!
