Review: Fisher Price Healthy Care Booster Seat

Originally posted on Chief Family Officer.

This booster seat from Fisher Price has gotten a lot of use. I like that it folds up compactly, with the tray attached, and that one of the straps used to secure it to a chair doubles as a carrying strap. I also like that much like the regular Healthy Care high chair, the tray for the booster seat can be sterilized in the dishwasher. The tray also has a dishwasher-safe cover for extra protection. Additionally, the seat itself is easy to wipe clean. The tray and back can be removed for an older child so the seat can be used as a booster seat - in fact, we use this at the dining table for Alex now.

Unlike the First Years' seat, the Fisher Price seat does not recline, so it's not suitable for a baby who can't sit up straight, and it's not likely a baby would be able to fall asleep and be comfortable in this booster seat. I do wish there were a place to clip toys on to so they didn't fall on the floor.

Overall, I highly recommend the Fisher Price booster seat for any baby who can sit up straight.


  1. We used to have a regular high chair, that I tripped over everyday for a year. So we got one of these instead. I love that it doesn't take up very much space in my house, because we already have so much kid crap. We use it without the tray, and my kid loves it because she can eat at the table with the rest of the family.

  2. I agree, the few months we had Alex in this chair while the high chair was still in storage (before Tyler was ready for it), we had a lot more space in our dining room!
