Expert Review: The Keekaroo Height Right high chair offers an affordable solution for parents looking for a wooden high chair with ample comfort, adjustability and a long life of use. But be warned -- the Keekaroo takes a lot of assembly! Once its put together, the wooden frame is sturdy, sleek and can hold an infant from about 6 months of age up to a 250 lb. adult. Available in three packages (just the chair, with a fabric seat cover and tray, or with a tray and foam infant cushion), the Keekaroo is versatile and looks gorgeous in any kitchen. It has 14 slot options to adjust the seat and footrest as well as a BPA-free, latex-free, easy cleaning, peel- and tear-resistant seat cushion available in seven colors. The tray and corresponding cover are on the smaller side (17.5"x7"), but the cover is both dishwasher-safe and BPA-free.

Why we love it: long range of use; 14 levels of height and footrest adjustment; environmentally friendly wood and finish; affordable wood high chair; super padded infant insert

What we wish it had: shorter assembly time; slightly larger tray; one-handed tray removal

Great for: parents looking for am affordable wood high chair; a chair to grow with your child; a chair made in the U.S.A.

Bottom line: An affordable wood high chair that looks great and can grow with your child from infant to adulthood

Parent rating:

"The primary seat is a flat wooden board. There's also a cushioned infant seat attachment, which is suggested for children 6 months to 3 years. It looks comfortable, though my 2-year-old daughter preferred the normal seat."

"Adjusting the chair is easy in theory, but I struggled with it. The addition of the infant seat was difficult. The video on the manufacturer's website was helpful, but I felt like I needed extra hands. In the end I was able to get a good fit. If I had help, it would have been quicker."

"The chair is easy to clean but the straps don't easily come off -- they're screwed on. The tray has a cover that wipes clean very easily."

"The tray is a bit of a challenge to get on and off. Putting it in place requires two hands, and taking it off is even more awkward. It would be great if it was able to be removed with only one hand. The tray has a removable cover that is super easy to wipe clean -- definitely a plus. The tray is slender so it fits my kid's dishes but is too small for some adult dishes."

"I would suggest this chair for a family who is trying to teach their child to be independent. The chair is also good for someone who likes to keep their kitchen looking clean and doesn't want all of the bright colors that come with most baby gear. However, if you want it to stand out, you can get a brightly colored infant seat. We went got the chocolate color and it looks great!"
