It wasn't long after Kaelyn's first birthday that we decided it was time to graduate her from a high chair to a booster seat. The high chair was great for a time, but there came a time when that big bulky seat and tray were not necessary. She was a big girl and learning to feed herself...so it was the perfect time for her join us right at the table for mealtime. We tried a couple of different booster seats over the past year and a half and found nothing that worked for us. They were either to low so she couldn't reach, or had too many cracks for food to get stuck in. Thankfully I recently came across the Mutsy Grow Up Seat and am SO happy I did!
Mutsy was founded in 1935 and is a name parents have grown to love and trust. Their mission is to meet the needs of today's modern and mobile parent by offering high quality baby transport products, as well as high chairs, booster seats and other innovative baby accessories that offer flexibility for all lifestyles.
I have browsed the Mutsy website many times and absolutely love the selection of products they offer. Their Grow Up toddler booster seat was especially intriguing to me...especially since I was beginning to feel as though there was no hope left in finding one that had everything we were looking for. I couldn't have been happier when I found out that Mutsy was going to send us a Mutsy Grow Up seat to review.
Before it arrived I wasn't sure what to expect. I really didn't know if this booster seat would be any better than the others we've tried. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong! This seat is wonderful!
The moment I took it out of the box I was already impressed. Not only is it very modern and attractive, but the seat is soft and comfortable which is something we had not found with other boosters we had tried in the past.
I hooked it to the chair and was very happy with the size as well. It's the perfect size for Kaelyn to sit at the table on an average grown-up chair. She can easily reach her utensils and set at the same level as everyone else. It's fantastic! I also like the harness which makes sure she is fastened in safely.
The fact that this chair can be used with children up to the age of 4 is great! That means we will get many more uses out of it. Having had the chance to use it several times already, I can tell you that this is the best quality booster seat we've tried. It's extremely durable and comfortable. Oh, and clean up couldn't be easier. There aren't any tricky cracks and creases for food to get forever stuck in. I love that part about it!
I would definitely recommend the Mutsy Grow Up Seat to anyone looking for a great booster seat! It comes in 6 vibrant colors: raspberry, apple, aqua, blueberry, mandarin, and nut.

In addition to the dinner tray features include a bumper bar, flexible seat reducer and a 5-point harness.
