Comment:
Was really excited when this arrived after snatching a great deal at BBB;<br />Pros: Love that it comes assembled! Only had to push the wheels in<br />the seat is awesome.. so soft and luxurious. My 10 month old shakes her head a lot so, I thought this would provide a nice cushion for her head<br /><br />Cons: The tray is very LARGE. almost too big in my opinion. And it definitely requires 2 hands to pull off. One to hold the chair and another to pull out the tray<br />This seat in general was really BIG for my 10 month old. The tray came up to her arm pits and I felt like it was difficult for her to reach for food pieces when I put it on her tray. <br /><br />I returned it.

Comment:
I purchased mine used (for $75!) and took it apart to clean it. It can be easily disassembled with a screw driver, and nearly all of the screws have blunted ends as a safety feature. Based on the review that it is too large for a small baby, I purchased the booster cushion for $42.79 on Amazon (made by Peg-Perego, but costs $69.99 directly from them). I also purchased the activity tray for $23.94 (again, made by Peg-Perego but $49.99). Really a great purchase, I saved over $200 altogether by purchasing used and shopping around. It is incredibly sturdy and has a plethra of safety features. I bought it based on the CR ratings, but was not impressed with the retail price - though I certainly found a way around the heafty price tag!
