Wooden high chairs are a favorite choice for parents largely because of the aesthetic appeal that accompanies wooden furniture. A wooden high chair, although more expensive than plastic and metal high chairs, are highly popular because of their attractive looks and ability to match furniture that most homes already have. High chairs made out of wood are also very durable, they can last up to years of use without wearing out. The padded fabric seats on these wooden chairs also make it much easier to clean the seating area.
Having said this, there are certain drawbacks of wooden high chairs that you need to know about as well. For instance, wooden high chairs are much heavier and hence less portable than their metal and plastic counterparts. Moreover, unlike the padded seating area, the wooden trays are easier to stain and much harder to clean up. Wooden high chairs are also more prone to scratches because wood is generally easier to scratch than plastic or metal.
All in all, wooden high chairs are favorable particularly because of their appealing designs and durability. However, you do need to take into account the higher costs and the need for extra care in order to prevent stains and scratches.
The Winco Wooden High Chair Review
The Winco CHH-103 is a wood constructed Mahogany colored high chair that features a simple and comfortable design for the young ones. The high chair product comes unassembled but the assembly process is straightforward (using metal fasteners) and should take around 15 minutes to complete.
The dimensions for the high chair are 20.1” x 19.4” x 29.2” (length x width x height) with a weight of 13 pounds. The Winco CHH-103 has a rubber padding for the seating that is easy to clean and wipe up.
Though the high chair is designed for children that are 1 year old or younger, it is suitable for older age groups as well (however, it would need appropriate modifications to be made).
This wooden high chair comes with a seat belt and bar for safety purposes, if your child is older than 1 years of age then you should consider removing these to ensure that they are seated properly. Furthermore, because this wooden high chair is designed for infants between 6 – 12 months of age, there is no wooden tray for keeping food or toys.
Conclusively, the Winco CHH-103 is a sturdy and well-designed chair for infants that can sit up straight. While this is a good option for children aged 1 year or less, you should take a look at the alternatives if your kid is older than this.
