Valco 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!
