Keekaroo Height Right with Infant Insert ReviewPrice: $280.00 List | $217.74 at Amazon - 22% off
Pros: Looks like furniture, grows with baby, easy to clean
Cons: Complicated assembly, small snack tray, doesn't fold to store
Bottom line: After jumping over the hurdle of assembly, you won't be disappointed by the functionality and ability to blend right into the kitchen table.
We truly enjoyed using the Keekaroo Height Right with Infant Insert chair. It was the first in a round of high chairs that we brought into our kitchen for testing and were excited to start using it right away. Although it is more modern in design than some of the other chairs, we never felt like the baby or older kids were using a delicate piece of household furniture. Once you get past its not-so-easy assembly, you'll find the Height Right is a sturdy little piece ('little' in that it doesn't take up much floor space at all) that can be utilized by almost every member of the family. It is easy to clean, and comes with a seriously durable infant insert that our baby enjoyed very much. With a little elbow grease, you can keep this chair looking shiny new by simply wiping down all the components. It does not feature a 5-point harness, but rather a 3-point pelvic belt that we felt kept baby just as secure. Much like it's counterpart, the Stokke Tripp Trapp, this was a welcome addition in our home. Read on to find out more about this top-scorer!

Our Analysis and Hands-on Test Results
With a vast array of color and finish possibilities, the Keekaroo Height Right high chair will blend right in around your dining room table. Our toddler tester thoroughly enjoyed being part of the group during meal times, and even with the infant insert, she fit nice and snug against the table. The small tray didn't hold much in the way of plates and cups, but really was just the right size for the amount of food a toddler actually needs. Additionally, we liked that the smaller plastic snack tray could easily be washed in our sink. Although not an award winner, we still thoroughly enjoyed using this product.
Keekaroo was founded in and is still located in Dolgeville, NY, a small town at the foothills of the Adirondacks. From product design to manufacturing labor, they work closely with their small town in the heart of Central New York. Their "Comfort Cushions" and "Infant Inserts" are proudly made in the USA. They also manufacture quality high chairs, kid chairs, boosters, and diaper pads. Their products are sold through select online or retail stores and are all JPMA Certified for safety. Additionally, they all come with a five year warranty.
Ease of Use
Ease of Cleaning
Boon Flair. One minor issue we did have was some food getting stuck in the velcro patches that hold the infant insert in place. All in all, however, we gave this chair a 9 of 10 for how simple and quickly it wiped clean.
We can not say enough good things about the infant insert piece, which promises to be peel and tear resistant, and found it amazingly durable just as the company promised (we really did try to puncture it with a fork, and couldn't manage to make a dent). As an added bonus, this chair is JPMA Certified to the highest safety standards to give you even more peace of mind.
Ease of Set Up
Unfortunately, this is where it took a big hit in scoring, earning only a 3 of 10. It was one of our most difficult chairs to put together, along with the Fisher-Price Rainforest Healthy Care. It took us the longest to assemble this chair out of all of them: a whopping 32 minutes. Although the instructions were pretty clear, they just were not that intuitive, and we found it was much easier to put together the Stokke Tripp Trapp, which is similar in design.
Footprint and Portability
This chair is best suited for those families who would like a versatile high chair that can double as a piece of furniture and not look like another piece of baby equipment. Even with the infant insert and tray attached, we still didn't get that bulky high chair vibe from it. Keep in mind that this chair will not accommodate your infant, as the baby must be at least 6 months old to be secured in the chair's 3-point harness. There are no shoulder straps with this seat, but when the infant insert is removed, the harness remains so you can secure your older toddler during meal times.
Given the fact that the Height Right, along with the Stokke Tripp Trapp, can hold up to 250 pounds, your investment in this chair will no doubt go a long way.
