Passed key safety tests
Key safety tests include stability, durability and security of the frame locking mechanism. In some cases, we find minor issues (such as finger entrapment in a hard to reach area) which may still make the high chair worth considering. Those models still pass the key safety tests. Some failures are rated as very minor - a model with only very minor failures can still be recommended.
Ease of cleaning score
We check how easy it is to clean a range of children's foods from the high chair seat, harness and tray (where available). Scores are then averaged. Ease of cleaning makes up 30% of the overall score. Models worth considering may have minor safety failures such as finger entrapment hazards, sharp edges or have one-button buckling devices. These models score 60-65% for performance. We don't recommend models with a major safety or durability failure, such as stability or lack of any harness or equivalent restraint. These models score 40% or below for performance. Note: We only recommend models with 5-point harnesses.

A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
