Dick went to the "Biggest Baby Gadget Show" this week and he saw this interesting new piece of furniture. It's the Bloom Fresco Chrome High Chair. Known as the world's highest baby chair, it's a breakfast bar an adult might eat at sitting on a stool. There's a 3-position recline system; fully lie-flat newborn cradle, semi recline and upright seat. Easy up/down height adjustments allow baby to join the family at the dining table or the modern breakfast bar. So it should be usable starting from birth, all the way to school age (which they give as 8 years old). In cradle mode, a newborn baby is up from the ground where parents and baby are able to experience all important eye-to-eye contact. Other features include a removable click-in/click-out aluminum safety bar designed for use in all 3 recline positions. A 5 point safety harness with padded shoulder straps & Bloom smart buckle, childproof release. A super-sized, scratch resistant & anti-slip adjustable feeding tray & second smaller play tray made from FDA food grade plastic & stainless steel parts that are removable & dishwasher safe. A removable reinforced aluminum footrest with 3 adjustable height positions.
But wait, there's more! Large, scratch free wheels concealed in base for easy movement. Minimum weight recommendation is 5 pounds and the maximum is 79 pounds. After reading all that you know this innovative high chair is not inexpensive. It ranges from about $450 to $850 with all the bells and whistles. But if you can use it for eight years, even the most expensive model is just a bit above a $100 a year.
