Best Non-Toxic Highchairs for Small Spaces 2020 – 3 Top Picks

February 13, 2020

As a parent of one and another on the way, I don’t have time to overthink every purchase. But some things are more important than others. When it comes to my little ones’ health and safety, I want good, bottom-line information to point me directly to my best options. Additionally, as time permits, I share this information with you lovely folks. Below are the top five non-toxic highchairs for small spaces on the market currently available that meet two simple criteria; they’re all good options where space is limited, and they are not harmful to your baby’s health.

The first few make it possible to scoot your mushed-pea-eater right up next to you at the table, if that’s what you’re after. Additionally, there are a couple solid budget-friendly alternatives in the list, as well as plenty of form, functionality, and flash at the high end.

Best Non-Toxic Highchairs for Small Spaces Under $800

Bloom Fresco Chrome High Chair

If you’re looking for a piece of furniture with shiny, stylish, and customizable design (including an optional “Snakeskin Black” seat cover!), this is your highchair. While the others (such as fisher price or Ikea antilop) cost considerably less, they aren’t non-toxic. Additionally, if bling is your thing, they’re no match for this cheeky little number.

What I love about it

  • Non-toxic materials and components
  • Easy to clean, removable parts
  • Adjustable seat positions
  • Can be used with tray or at table

Something to keep in mind

  • Requires additional “Starter Kit” (from around $100)

Additional Specs

  • BPA Free seats available in many colors
  • FDA food grade plastic and stainless steel construction
  • Complies with CPSIA and ASTM standards


 

Best Non-Toxic Highchairs for Small Spaces Under $350

 

Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair

The Tripp Trapp’s attractive, ergonomic design and durable construction establish it as a quality choice. Moreover, JPMA certification and the available 7-year extended warranty instill further confidence in Stokke’s commitment to delivering a reliable product.

What I love about it

  • Stable and comfortable design
  • Made of non-toxic, natural beech wood
  • Adjusts to fit infant sizes to adults
  • Accommodates child seated at dining table–no tray required

Something to keep in mind

  • 5 point harness strap design may be uncomfortable or difficult to adjust

Additional Specs

  • BPA Free
  • Seat and footplates adjust for height and depth
  • Optional baby seat available for added support


Best Non-Toxic Highchairs for Small Spaces Under $250

Keekaroo Height Right High Chair

With a couple caveats, this non-toxic highchair could be the best value for those who prioritize function over form. The thin finish has been reported to wear off, and the soft rubberwood may scratch or dent easily. But underneath these cosmetic details is a solid highchair with a 5-year standard warranty.

What I love about it

  • JPMA Certified
  • Tray and cloth cushion seat included
  • Adjustable seat and footplates (1-inch increments) with recline position
  • Designed to promote good posture and prevent fatigue
  • Anti-microbial “Infant Insert” available for increased comfort and style

Something to keep in mind

  • Tray design can make cleanup difficult

Additional Specs

  • Natural wood or mahogany colors available
  • Supports up to 250 lbs.
  • Plant-based lacquer finish
  • 1.5° tip-resistant seating angle


Conclusion

These are the best non-toxic highchairs for small spaces currently out there for their respective price ranges. However, do keep in mind that a few extra dollars spread out over the life of the product (and sometimes, as with my family, the lives of multiple kids) may be money well spent.

Hypoallergenic, environmentally friendly materials and construction ensure your baby’s health. Additionally, solid, ergonomically advanced designs keep kids safe and comfy and hold up to years of hard use.

It’s important to invest in quality when it comes to the products your little ones use every day. Select only germ-resistant, environmentally safe highchairs, bassinets, carriers, and other accessories for your baby that will last for years to come.

      Hi Rachel,
      I hadn’t really looked into it at the time of this article, but a quick bit of search makes it appear very promising, as it is made of good quality real wood which has been treated. Their website also provides the below information, which is very reassuring:

      Anti-microbial Heat Sterilization. Ensures a hygienic environment for your child.
      Eco-friendly. Cultivated beech wood has been carefully selected to keep the forests healthy and sustainably productive.
      Safety Standards. Beyond Junior Y Chair meets and complies with ASTM F404 & HR 4040 standards and contains no harmful substances, such as BPA, Phthalate, PVC.

      Hope this helps.
      Good luck with your search

    Dear Shobita,

    Thank you very much for all your lists and reviews! I appreciate your input. I have a question concerning the Summer Infant High Chair. How is it non toxic? I didn’t read anything about the wood or the fabric.

    Thank you!
