Portable baby seat reviews

Clip-on high chairs, travel highchairs and portable booster seats - which are the safest?

Last updated: 3rd December 2014

Modern parenting's holy grail might be a high chair that takes your bub from home kitchen to high tea without hassles. But with so many portable options on the market, which type should you choose? Our test of more than 30 models covers boosters, clip on versions and floor seats for young babies (which should never be used on an elevated surface), to tell you which ones are:

  • easy to use
  • safe for your baby.

In our rigorous test we look at key safety requirements such as choking and entrapment hazards, sharp points, strength, structural integrity and security.

CHOICE only recommends babies' and kids' products that meet our strict safety criteria. Our tests often go above and beyond the minimum safety requirements set by standards and regulations. This does mean we're sometimes unable to fully recommend any models in our tests. Our results will tell you why, and if any are worth considering.
