Cheapest Good-Looking High Chair
The Ikea Antilop high chair is cheeeaaaap, easy to clean, and actually looks totally fine in all but the fanciest and trendiest of dining rooms.
Things We Love
- So Cheap: Guys, it’s $17.99. For the whole chair. And only $5 more for the tray.
- Decent Looking: It’s not the best looking, but it’s definitely not hideous either. For families on a budget, the Ikea Antilop is a great decent-looking option.
- Easily Collapsible & Stackable: By taking off the legs, the Ikea Antilop can be stored in a closet and out of sight. Multiple assembled chairs can also stack on top of each other.
- Tableside Dining: When your kiddo gets a bit more coordinated with food, simply remove the tray and slide the chair up to the family dining table.
- Very Easy to Clean: Some parents even take the whole chair into the shower and/or hose it down outside after especially messy meals!
- A Great Second Chair: At $22.99, the Ikea Antilop is a great “second” high chair for grandma’s house, for keeping outdoors, or for storing in the closet for playdates.
Things We Don't Love As Much
- Large Footprint The angled legs tend to get in the way a bit, and the chair takes up a pretty sizable footprint.
- Doesn't Promote Self-Sufficiency: There is no easy way for self-sufficient toddlers to climb into or out of this high chair safely on their own, though resourceful climbers have found ways!
- No Footrest: Without a footrest, your kid's legs will always dangle down, which while not ergonomically ideal, doesn't really seem to bother kids anyway.
- None necessary, but you can customize your high chair with a silicone mat and/or seat cushion from Yeah Baby Goods.
