What are the bad points of the Chicco Polly High Chair?
It has a leg design that is really conducive to tripping a toddler over. Toddlers don’t have much motor control, as you’ll know if you’re a parent. When your tot starts walking, they’ll trip over most things. The Chicco high chair has four legs with a bar connecting each of the two front and back legs. This makes it pretty hazardous. The chair is also light in weight, so it will topple if tripped on.
It also has several nooks and crannies. This means that food can (and will!) slip down and get stuck. Obviously, this will have to be cleaned less it get mouldy. Unfortunately those same gaps mean that the Chicco high chair is quite difficult to clean. This is a negative that can’t be ignored.
Should I buy a Chicco Polly High Chair?
The Chicco Polly high chair is a great chair that’s affordable, durable and is comfortable for your child. However it does come with its downsides; it is difficult to clean, and yet cleaning it is necessary. Its lightweight, whilst handy for moving around, can be troublesome should it be toppled by your child. However, if you can overcome these difficulties, then the Chicco Polly high chair is an ideal high chair for babies.
