The Oxo Sprout is part of the high chair
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, high chair
models like the Sprout are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Safety for each high chair was assessed by our testing, which is based on the voluntary safety standard, ASTM F404-10. Tests include evaluations of the restraint system, stability of the high chair, and static and dynamic load assessments as well as other tests.
Ease of use:
Ease of use is based on trained panelists' assessments of harness adjustment and use, folding and unfolding, removing and replacing the tray and tray insert (if any), adjusting seat back and height where applicable, removing and replacing the seat cover.

This is one of two high chairs I own and use. It is on the compact side, but very sold. It is contemporary in design. It can be used from baby to older child (4 year old), as the tray and crotch block are removable (but, not by the child). The base is made of wood and the seat and tray are made of tough plastic. This is one sturdy high chair, so if you're worried about topple, gravitate towards this one. <br /><br />The tray is easy to put on and take off with one hand. Note of caution, though, the tray is on the heavier side. If you drop it, it will likely land on your foot. And, that will HURT!

Our little one loves her sprout chair. When I was investigating high chairs, I wanted something that could potentially be a longer term investment for my money and would be attractive. The Sprout works on both counts. It is safe and easy to clean and looks great. Most of my friends with infants commented that they only used their high chairs for a limited time, but with the ability to convert to a booster seat, I am anticipating using this chair for the next several years.
