Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written about the best strollers, double strollers, and car seats for kids, here we’re zeroing in on the best high chairs as reviewed on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best convertible high chairs

Graco Blossom 6-in-1 Convertible High Chair Seating System

“An absolute must-have!!! I have the same seating system, still in excellent condition, after three babies, and we are still going strong with it! It has been used by all of my children, and we have been able to simultaneously use the booster seat and high chair for my kids during their different life stages. It has lasted years and that is more than I could have ever hoped for. With the way products are made these days, you’re lucky to get something to last a year, let alone close to four-and-a-half years (and three babies later). I am also impressed that the straps and integrity of the chair is still in 110 percent excellent condition. Overall, best baby buy I’ve had.”

Graco DuoDiner LX Baby 3-in-1 High Chair

“We love this high chair. It is so easy to put together and the quality is super. The dual trays are awesome so that you can just pop the liner out with one hand and throw it into the sink to wash. It rolls really smoothly, so I can pull baby along with me if we need to move around. And we push it into the corner when not in use. The reclining feature is great if you are feeding a bottle. We love that this will grow with her as well. The seat material is very wipeable and it does come out, so you can properly wash it. Would definitely recommend.”

Graco SimpleSwitch 2-in-1 High Chair

“I really love this high chair. It’s for baby No. 4, so I’ve been through some chairs, from $250 ones to clip-ins to floor seats, and I have to say I think this is my favorite! It’s very lightweight, small profile yet full-size chair part, reclines, super easy one-hand tray removal, the straps are such a cinch and not cumbersome like some can be, baby has lots of room to grow, and I love how easy it is to wipe down. It’s simple yet functional and I couldn’t be happier!!”

Evenflo Convertible High Chair

“We love this chair. When our daughter was very young, we used it like a standard high chair, noting with pleasure that food thrown from the top tier was most frequently caught on the tablelike platform below her. Then, when we wanted her to eat while we watch TV, we removed the top and put her in the shorter chair, where she was about the same height as the coffee table. We then noticed that she preferred to sit in the chair without the tray, so we pulled it up to the table, creating her own table-and-chair set. This set is remarkably versatile.”

Best reclining high chair

OXO Tot Seedling High Chair

“We love our high chair. It is easy to clean and looks nice, too. We love the many ways it can be adjusted especially. When our daughter first started using it, we had to tilt it back to the middle recline position, or she dribbled out her liquid-y cereal and purées. When we gave her a sippy cup, we would tilt it back all the way to help her drink. Now that she is almost 9 months, we can leave it in the upright position and she does just fine. The tray goes on really easily, is easy to take off, and has adjustment positions for various sizes of baby. The seat cushion is really easy to wipe down and dries quickly. We would buy it again in a heartbeat.”

Best folding high chairs

Joovy Nook High Chair

“I love, love, love this chair. Not only is it easy to clean and easy to use but the color and style are great. It also folds up easily and we are able to hide it away. We live in a very small house and worried about the influx of baby items. This one is not on our radar, as it is convenient and portable to hide away when necessary. The removable try is easy to get on and off to clean; I also love the side swing.”

Graco Slim Snacker High Chair

“This is a must-have for any busy mother. I love that I can open and close this with one hand. The recline features of the seat make it usable for an infant if you want to sit them down without using a chair that is on the floor or sat on a counter. Your child can grow with this, and you will not be disappointed. The color is neutral and will fit any room. The seat is easy-to-clean material, and the tray is easy to take off and clip on.”

Baby Trend Sit Right High Chair

“I adore this high chair! The seat is so easy to wash and I love the double tray. It has adjustable height, reclines, folds flat (for easier packing if you travel a lot), and is so stinkin’ cute for such a great price. Would highly recommend!”

Best wooden high chairs

Abiie Beyond Wooden High Chair With Tray

“Love, love, love this high chair. We enjoy how easy it is to clean, how adjustable it is, how compact it is, and how BEAUTIFUL it is. Seriously, this chair is a work of art and looks even better in person. Hats off to the creator of this chair — clearly they were aware of the pitfalls of all other high chairs on the market and really strove to make the best possible product. I love that the tray has two click positions. When it’s in the closer position, the tray is nice and close up to my child’s body, so it minimizes food dropping onto the seat. I’m really impressed with this one.”

Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair

“This chair is expensive, but considering that we’ll use it at least twice a day for several years, it’s worth every penny. We live in a 1946 house with a small dining room, and I wanted something that we could pull up to the table. I love that it fits right up against the table like another chair and blends in. My daughter eats at the table with us, which I think is nice when we’re having dinner together as a family. It’s also really easy to clean. No padding that you have to take out and wash. No crevices for food to get trapped.”

Excellante Wooden High Chair

“I truly love this chair. It’s solid wood; its safe and steady. I got one for my oldest and then ended up buying a second for my youngest. My boys are 2 and 1, and they both climb and do crazy things. This chair is sturdy and can hold their climbing, and they are able to get up and down on their own — with me watching right there, just in case — but the chair is SAFE and has never tipped. What I love the most is the simple design and the natural color.”

Keekaroo Height Right Kids High Chair

“I was hesitant about these price-wise, but desperate for a better solution for our super-fidgety toddlers at dinnertime! The booster seats just weren’t working, so we took the plunge after reading the reviews, and I’m very pleased! They have made mealtimes MUCH more pleasant. We’ve found that the comfort and ease of these chairs encourage us to play more Play-Doh and do more art projects together. Definitely worth it!”

Best portable high chair

Ciao! Baby Portable High Chair

“This high chair is amazing! I bought this when my daughter was 7 months old. Since I am in the military, I travel quite frequently and I can take this anywhere. I usually leave it in my car since she is content playing in it no matter where we are. It comes with straps to keep her safely in the seat, but I’ve never had to use them. The design keeps her in there snug. I love that the sop has a plastic cover that can be easily wiped off when needed. The legs have a lock on them to make sure it is completely unfolded. Also comes with a nice carrying case made of much thicker material than those fold-up chairs you get from Walmart. Made very sturdy and looks great!”

Best clip-on high chairs

Chicco Caddy Hook-On Chair

“This thing is life-changing. We use this whenever we go out to eat, and we at least have someone come up to us to ask what it is. I get this for a baby gift for every one of my friends. It is so easy to use and it is very sturdy on any type of table. Way better than the public, dirty high chairs!”

Inglesina Fast Table Chair

“I absolutely love these chairs! I run a day care and use them every day! They clean so easily with just a wet towel. The material is thick and sturdy, and they screw very snugly on the table! My No. 1 choice of high chair! Plus, they fold down and can be put in the storage bag attached very quickly and easily. I have used many kinds of high chairs, but these are the best, space-saving and great for travel.”

Best modern high chair

Boon Flair Highchair

“MY FAVORITE baby purchase ever! I love, love, love this. I didn’t buy a lot of big-ticket items for my baby boy because I thought it was a waste since they grow out of these things so quickly, but this is a MUST-HAVE. I would gladly spend the money on this again. It rolls super well on my hardwood floors without damaging them and is SUPER EASY to clean!!!! I just wipe with a Clorox wipe and wash the tray with soapy water and VOILÀ looks like new! It’s AWESOME and it looks so modern.”
