High Chair brand review: IKEA

BB Rating
What's This?


A EXCELLENT-our top pick!
B GOOD-above average quality, prices, and creativity.
C FAIR-could stand some improvement.
D POOR-yuck! Could stand some major improvement.


IKEA has two minimalistic high chairs offerings. The Antilop ($15; pictured) is a plastic chair with metal legs . . . but doesn’t include a tray (that’s $5 extra) and doesn’t fold up. A support pillow with cover is available for an extra $6.

The Blames ($60) is a wood high chair with plastic tray.

These chairs are clearly designed for older kids, but the lack of a five-point harness (the “safety belt” doesn’t quite cut it) or other adjustments make these a hard sell. That said, readers have generally given good reviews to the Antilop—one mom said it was incredibly easy to clean and just the ticket for her twins. Rating: C+
