Valco Astro-nomic giveaway

astro-high-chair-graphite-valco-baby-ast9920-fValco Baby has just introduced the right high chair at the right price at the right time. The Astro High Chair is a simple, lightweight, folding high chair that’s an amazing value at $150.

A little while ago, we had a visit from Shalom New, the head of Valco Baby in the USA. He brought his only sample of the Astro to our offices. Our demonstration started when Shalom walked in with a slim black bag slung over his shoulder. “Aren’t you here to show us a high chair?” we asked. Turned out, the high chair was in the bag.  We were impressed.

Once the chair was unfolded, we saw that the Astro is a full-featured high chair in a very tidy package.  The seat is large and comfortable, with a leatherette cushion that wipes clean. There’s a five-point harness, a slightly adjustable footrest and a deep, dishwasher-safe tray. The chair can accommodate children up to 44 pounds, and my little seven-month-old seemed to fit just fine when he tried it out.

With the wallet-friendly price and the super-duper fold, you sacrifice a few bells and whistles. The seat does not recline, nor is it height-adjustable. But depending on your needs, these might be a small price to pay. The Astro comes in four colors – ivory, graphite, chocolate and aqua.

What’s that? You say you want a giveaway? I love giveaways, and fortunately, so does Shalom. You can be one of the first to own an Astro high chair. Simply leave a comment on this post between now and March 23rd at midnight EST. We will draw a winner on March 24th. Good luck!

  5. We love our Valco stroller and this looks like an other great Valco product.

  6. Sounds great for apartment living. We never got a highchair for our 2 year old because we did not have the space.

  7. This looks like a great highchair! I love the design and the fact that it can be folded compactly.

  8. Perfect for when the grandbabies visit!

  9. Very cool. A big step up from IKEA, but not in price.

  10. Would love this for our apartment! Looks like it will actually fit!

  11. I would love this for my new modern kitchen!

  12. This sounds perfect for urban-dwellers with limited space!

  13. I’d love to have this! My daughter is just about to the age where she’ll be using a high chair… :)

  14. I would love this!!!

  15. wow! so slim and sleek! and just in time, i must agree! we were about to shell out for a fancy pants one, and this is so much nicer!

  16. Just the perfect thing for everyone (including me) who lives in a small space and keeps searching for compact baby gear.

  17. we were going to buy one of these bad boys this week! winning it would be even better!

  18. We love Magic Beans! We are a military family away from home for a year. This would be awesome!

  19. OOh, we need a high chair. I love this site!

  20. Magic Beans & Shalom,
    This high chair is PERFECT for our nine month son! We have been looking for a portable high chair that is easy to pack up and take to grammy’s.
    I hope that we are chosen to be the lucky owners.

  21. This high chair would be awesome to have for my new son. It is so cute and practical.

  22. Baby #2 on the way would love to win in the Astro-nomic Giveaway!

  23. this would look great in our kitchen! thanks for the chance to win!

  24. I’ve had some really “good” high chairs in the past made by top manufacturers and found them annoyingly large and unwieldy. This one, however, seems just right for our family. Can’t wait to check it out in person!

  25. Very practical and stylish

  26. I always trust your picks and would love to win this highchair for our 8-month old.

  27. Wow that looks and sounds really amazing! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  28. I love this highchair. It is much cooler than the one my wife wanted to buy. I really need to get chair for my son that is not the typical baby highchair. This is the coolest seat ever!!

  29. If it works for your seven month old, it works for us! Love you picks and your store. This chair looks great.

  30. This highchair would be perfect for my small house, and my budget! I like the styling and think the compact fold is great. Thanks!!

  31. I was considering an inexpensive highchair from ikea, but saw this one and really liked it much more, just wasn’t sure if it was in the budget. Winning it sure would be nice! What I thought it had over the ikea chair was comfort (padded seat), the slim design without legs that stick far out beyond the chair (taking up space, and tripping people!), the super fold for storing away, and looks. Thanks for carrying this chair Magic Beans.

  32. Thanks Magic Beans for choosing to stock this great chair. I would love to win one for my grandkids!

  33. What a great high chair it would make life easier in our small apartment,

  34. This high chair looks wonderful! We live in a VERY small apartment our with 2 kids (Micah is 5 months), 2 border collies, a cockatoo, and salt water fish on our land until we build a house in the next year. It also looks sturdy so our 3 year old would be less likely to tip it over. We have been looking at cheaper ones but they don’t look to be very comfortable and seem to be less stable. I REALLY hope we win this one!!
