Cosatto 3Sixti Highchair – Review

Last month I was invited to Cosatto HQ to have a cheeky nose at all the most recent releases where I promptly fell in love with everything!  Well more specifically the Oh la la range – of course it appealed to my long standing adoration of a navy & red combo with stripes to boot!  The Yo! would be an ideal “car” pushchair for us.  I couldn’t help but swoon.

With weaning high on the agenda in our house I was also really drawn to the 3Sixti2 Highchair – Amy had been using a very basic highchair and I was really conscious of how unsupported she was.  She looked uncomfortable and it made feeding her tricky.  Immediately the 3Sixti looked like it would address so many of my issues with the current highchair and I was keen to try it out!

I was very excited when the 3Sixti highchair arrived and was keen to get it put together in time for lunch!  From opening the package to getting Amy sat in the highchair took less than 20 minutes!  Fitting it together is all pretty obvious however it’s well worth keeping the instructions to hand as you need to do it all in the right order for ease.

So what were my first thoughts on the Cosatto 3Sixti highchair?

* The base is really heavy – which is obviously super stable but it does mean you don’t want to be moving the highchair around too much

* The highest seat setting is just right for the tray to fit over our dining room table – without the tray it can be lowered to sit under the table like any other chair

* I love the removable inner tray – much easier to clean

* The harness fits easily so could be removed to wash

* The seat cover just slides on making it easier to lift and wipe underneath. the seat cover itself should also wipe clean easily

* The seat reclines to three positions which is ideal for feeding younger babies

* The fancy gas lift makes it really easy to get the highchair to just the right position (though I won’t be pointing out the foot button to Ben and Chloe)

* The pattern is gorgeous – so bright and cheerful and I love the apple details on the base!

And after a few weeks use . . .

* Amy is so much more comfortable in the 3Sixti highchair than the highchair we were using previously

* She’s fastened in safely with a full adjustable 5 point harness which is easy to fasten and undo. The shoulder straps come apart from the waist straps which initially irritated me but I actually love it now as it means no trying to bend her arms through the straps, I just pop them over her shoulders.

* There is a post between her legs as well as the harness which stops her from slipping down the seat

* The seat is nicely cushioned, I can put her in there with a toy while I make lunch and know that she’s comfortable and safe.  She is happy to sit in the 3Sixti highchair for quite a while unlike her old highchair which was very much an “in and out” job

* It’s pretty easy to clean – let’s face it all highchairs are a nightmare to clean in one way or another however al the plastic wipes clean easily and the fact that the seat cover isn’t fastened anywhere at the bottom makes it super easy to lift and clean under.  There are no fabric edges to get grubby with food either.

* The two part tray is easy to remove and wash in the sink (or even better the dishwasher!)

* The rounded base means its easy to get it close to the table – no sticky out legs in the way

* The gas lift means its very easy to get your little one to exactly the right height to sit at the table with you (or wherever else you might be sat!)

* Amazingly after noticing there was a button and being shown what it does, Ben and Chloe have left the pedal to raise and lower the seat alone which is a relief!

* The 3Sixti highchair comes with a 4 year guarantee so you should have no problems using it for more than one child! (Of course this helps to justify the investment!)

The 3Sixti is of course available from all good stockists

We love our 3Sixti highchair and really wouldn’t be without it now!

*We were sent the 3Sixti2 highchair free of charge for the purposes of review however all thoughts and opinions are my own*

    I love the design and how there aren't any legs sticking out. Wipe clean is a great plus point too! x

    This looks great, & such nice colours too! We've had a stokke high chair since bear was a dot- with a newborn adaption & then it adjusts continually. Their selling point is that it's a chair that lasts forever & even adults use them. We've been so happy with ours,

    We have never really researched any of our "big buys" and got the worst high chair EVER that I just hate and want to burn/melt!

    This one looks amazing though!

    I have never seen a high chair like this one, it looks amazing. So much better then the ones that were around when my kids were small and I love the bright cheery design too.

    The design and patterns are so cool. I love it when they have the bar between the legs, as Baby is Houdini and gets out of her straps, so at least she doesn't hit the deck x

    awww that's lovely, love the design and its so sleek and chic! looks and sounds like the perfect highchair! #TriedTested

    We're way past the highchair stage but this does look good #TriedTested

    What an interesting design for a highchair! No more stubbing toes on legs sticking out. It does rather resemble a hair dressing chair though!

  22. July 30, 2014 / 11:06 pm

    This does look cool – and I love the idea of the removable inner tray for cleaning. We're pretty happy with our £16 IKEA highchair too though!

    i love cosatto designs, would be nice if Cosatto had value products as well

  24. July 31, 2014 / 9:20 pm

    It looks wonderful, so colourful. It wouldn't have worked for us though. We have a tiny house and I needed to be able to fold the highchair up and put it out of the way when we weren't using it. It does look lovely though if you have the space.
