[REVIEWED: The Leander High Chair]
Sometimes you just don’t want that colourful, garish typical baby stuff around the house. Ok, in my case all the time! Call me a snob if you want but it’s funny how as time goes by and you get further into your motherhood journey how your tastes change.
You learn where to get the good stuff from, and the things that will last, work well AND look good. You reach a point where you want your house to look nice. Particularly when, like me, you have more than one baby and you have a lot of baby stuff! Yes, the baby products are necessary, but it is possible get stuff that looks good with your décor.
With two kids under the age of two, 17 months apart, we’re going through a few stages at once at the moment. Our five month old, Aoife, is just coming off the boob and starting on solids. Our 22 month old, Harry, has just reached a point where he no longer wants to be confined to a high chair. Cue a massive sigh from me because it was AMAZINGLY handy to be able to lock him away in there while I ran upstairs to bath the younger one quickly, or to have him sit there and play with the messy stuff (so it was confined to the one place, not spread ALL OVER the goddamn room!).
We have a Leander high chair and it’s been amazing for Harry. It’s stylish, fits right in with the house, and has multiple settings to fit babies and toddlers of all sizes. We used it in what I would call 'baby mode' (with the bar, T bar and cushion) with him when he was smaller. Now that he’s bigger, I’ve taken the baby bits off and it works well as a higher chair for him to eat his dinner or play at the ‘big table’.
The best thing is that when he stops using it all together we’ll be able to revert it back and use it for Aoife (which shouldn’t be too long as she’s close to sitting). But even if we didn’t have a second bub, we could turn it into a chair – yep, that’s right, it turns into a proper chair that adults can use. Super handy for those dinner parties where you end up having another person come over unannounced and need to find another chair!
Considering the longevity of the chair, not to mention the quality, style and multiple uses, I think the price point for it (between $250 and $299) is fair. I know it’s high on my list of recommendations to my mum-to-be friends. A big high five to Leander for making something so functional and awesome.
