I use a montessori style approach to feeding, so ive never used this as a high chair. I have used it as a floor chair with the tray, and its super nice that my baby could crawl (and now walk) to the chair and get in himself. I agree with other reviewers that the tray is not the greatest of sesigns as the sides and middle are all pinch hazards with a squirmy baby. You also cant place food on the tray until its clicked in place because it does go on at an angle. But, even with these faults, its not unusable, just something to be aware of and accommodate. My 1yo is now using it as a table and chair, which makes clean up a breeze (especially if you dont use the cushion). I love that i can easily sit on the floor with him and feed him in a montessori style fashion, and maintain his independence. Be aware, this stores up fairly easily in pieces so as not to take up much space, and it is extremely simple to assemble and disassemble. However, it does take up a good bit of room to leave out all the time.
