Fisher Price Space Saver High Chair, I Heart You

Print Friendly

The first high chair that I bought for my daughter was a Blames high chair. In case you didn’t read the story of our love, that relationship ended on bad terms. I, being the mender in our relationship tried to make things work. But after countless headbutts and plate throws and mealtime wars, I knew it was over. I knew I needed a new chair.

I needed an affordable chair that worked (i.e., a chair that keep restrain my toddler through mealtimes). This time, I didn’t really care about looks. This time, I wanted substance.

So through some online research, I was led me to the Fisher Price Space Saver High Chair.

So what were some of the things that attracted me to the Fisher Price Space Saver? Here are just a few of its perks:

  •  Affordability. I purchased my chair for $59.99 from a local Target.
  • Toddler friendly. At the top of my list for a replacement chair was something that could restrain my agile toddler. This chair featured a chest harness that I, suspected, would do just trick.
  • Compact design. The Space Saver high chair fits atop dining room chairs with straps connected on the bottom of the chair and around the back of the chair.
  •  Attractive. Fisher Price offers a variety of styles and colors for the Space Saver chair. While not as beautiful as my Blames, Fisher Price did do a great job in offering parents a variety of design options for this chair.

And, in the seven months I’ve had this chair, here’s what I love:

  • It restrains my once mealtime resisting toddler. And this makes mealtimes a lot less stressful.
  • The fabric liner that can be placed on the high chair can easily be removed and washed in the washing machine.
  •  The chair, which is made of plastic, is super easy to clean.
  •  It works on all the chairs in my house.
  • The tray can be easily removed with only one hand and can be placed in the dishwasher.
  •  It’s versatility for a variety of age groups. The Space Saver high chair offers parents many options to adjust the height of the chair, to adjust the incline of the tray and seat backing. It converts from a high chair to a booster seat through simple removal of the upper backing of the high chair and transfer of the safety harness to the bottom slots on the chair.

Chair set up as a booster seat

 

Here’s what I think could be improved:

  • The booster seat doesn’t fit under my dining room table or our island’s countertop, so I have not been able to really use it as a true booster seat without the tray.

What I recommend the Fisher Price Saver Chair to other parents?

Yes, yes, and yes! Although the booster seat doesn’t properly fit under my table or countertop, there’s so much else to love about this highchair that I would recommend it to other parents looking for an affordable, versatile chair that is full of good substance.

    I have this as a second choice highchair. I ADORE the regular Fisher Price High chairs. There are many varieties of the same chair. One of wich is the Precious Planet. It is an A+ chair with a high weight limit and a LOT of versatility. The Space Saver option is stordy, but if your chair is not as strong, wobboly, or has narrow leggs, then this chair is only as strong as the chair it is placed on. Also, some chairs do not allow this HC to recline. One other thing….. this is only for my personal Space Saver, I believe. When you look at the base, it is not level/even. The base raises and lowers for height alterations. No matter what one side always sits a touch higher than the other. I could probbable say something to the company, but It is such a hastle to do this type of thing. It wouldn’t matter for older babies, but any baby who may be dealing with a flat head issue…. this little bit sure would matter. Both of my sons were born with slight flat spots from my pelvic bone. I had to be extra careful with issues such as these.
    I LOVE Fisher Price’s price points on high chairs. My Precious Planet one will lover to a short chair that my toddlers can use when reading a book and can climb in and out of at will. <3<3<3 LOVE the options!

    One thing to think about. There is a NEW-ish trend in tables to be counter height. This option will let you have a high chair up at your table height, when an average HC will be too low for the baby/toddler to feel like they are really at the table with the family.

  3. Thanks for the helpful view:) Wish I had read it before having a baby. If I had a preparing for baby do-over, I’d go for a Fisher-Price booster seat or space saver model rather than getting both a booster seat and a regular high chair.
