Who Is a Portable High Chair Recommended For?

Perfect for Those on the Go and Those With Limited Space at Home

Perfect for Those on the Go and Those With Limited Space at Home
Portable high chairs create a seating environment for children as long as there's a table or an adult chair to attach them to. They provide a seating option for children even in places without kids' chairs, like parks, restaurants, and relatives' homes. They're easily storable due to being able to fold up.

Portable high chairs are ideal for those who don't want a floor-standing high chair taking up space or for those who won't use it frequently. Many might worry about the safety of attaching a portable high chair to a tall table, but if used correctly according to the instructions, the risk of falls and other accidents is minimal. We've compiled some key precautions below, so be sure to check them when using the chair.


  • Confirm that the table or adult chair you want to attach it to is compatible.
  • The recommended age is just a guideline, so always adhere to the weight limit.
  • Securely fasten it without any gaps and ensure it doesn't wobble.
  • Try not to take your eyes off the child when they are seated.

Especially when you're out and about, it's crucial to meticulously check the shape of the table and adult chairs you want to use. This ensures you won't find yourself unable to attach your child's portable high chair.

For models that attach to tables, cleaning the floor is a breeze without having to move any chairs. Especially noteworthy for those using robot vacuums, you won't have the hassle of them getting stuck on high chair legs, making daily chores a tad easier.

How to Choose a Portable High Chair - Buying Guide

Here are the points to keep in mind when choosing the best Portable High Chairs.

1

Choose Between Ones That Attach to Tables and Ones That Attach to Chairs

Consider the Table at Your Desired Location

Consider the Table at Your Desired Location

There are two main types of portable high chairs: those that attach to tables and those that affix to adult chairs. Choose the type that suits your needs best, depending on the table you wish to use. The kind that attaches to a table can't be fixed to tables with very thin or thick tops, hollow tops, round tables, or unstable tables. If you use these tables, be wary of opting for this type.


Portable high chairs that attach to adult chairs are commonly referred to as booster seats. They fit most adult chairs. However, if the chair has an oddly shaped backrest, it might not secure as well, so caution is essential. First, assess the table at your desired location and decide on the type that fits. After that, please refer to the guidelines below to find the perfect product for your needs.

Margaret Howd
Childcare Service ProviderMargaret Howd

Each portable high chair model has unique attachment methods and conditions. Before purchasing, ensure you read any safety precautions listed. Additionally, always read the instruction manual thoroughly when using the product for the first time.

2

Opt for Safety-Conscious Products

A 5-Point Harness Provides Secure Support for Your Child

A 5-Point Harness Provides Secure Support for Your Child

The straps that hold your child in come in two varieties: a five-point system covering both shoulders, hips, and the crotch, and a three-point system covering just the hips and crotch. For younger children who might not sit still, or those who tend to make sudden movements, a five-point harness is recommended for added security.


With the three-point system, there's a risk of more significant movements and possible escape, since the upper body isn't restrained. Even if your baby is calm during the early stages of being strapped in, they might become more active as they grow, perhaps even resisting sitting down. It's good to be prepared and opt for a five-point belt.

Products With Hidden Covers to Prevent Unbuckling Are Ideal

Products With Hidden Covers to Prevent Unbuckling Are Ideal

Upon purchasing some products, we noticed that some had covered buckles, while others didn't. Since kids often mimic adults, if the buckle isn't covered, there's a chance they might press the release button. Having a buckle cover ensures the child can't easily release it, reducing the risk of them suddenly becoming unstable.

3

Easy Attachments Make for Hassle-Free Outings

Quick Installation Is Preferable, Despite Most Seats Being Simple

Quick Installation Is Preferable, Despite Most Seats Being Simple

The high chairs that attach to tables that we tested fell into three categories based on their fixing method: those that use screws, those with lever clamps, and a type where you pull a strap from the back. While all were easy to attach, the quickest was the Chicco QuickSeat Hook-On Chair, which attaches by pulling a belt on the back. It's perfect for those looking for a hassle-free and swift setup.


As for the type that attaches to adult chairs, they primarily use belts around the backrest and seat, which is quite straightforward and doesn't feel cumbersome. There wasn't much variation in the ease of attachment among these products.

4

Focus on Compactness and Weight for Easy Portability

Dimensions Under 35 Inches When Folded and Weight Around 4 Pounds Make for Easy Carrying

Dimensions Under 35 Inches When Folded and Weight Around 4 Pounds Make for Easy Carrying

If you plan to use it frequently while out, you should prioritize compactness and lightness. Based on our portability tests, when products folded to their smallest size were a total cubic dimension of 35 inches or less and weighed less than four pounds, seven ounces, they were easiest to carry. Yet, measuring many products before buying isn't always feasible. If ease of portability is vital for you, refer to our product ranking for guidance.

Additional Storage Bags and Shoulder Straps Are Convenient

Additional Storage Bags and Shoulder Straps Are Convenient

If it comes with a dedicated bag or a shoulder strap, it'll be handy and much easier to carry, especially when on the move. Outings with children invariably mean lots of baggage, so it's wise to select something easy to carry.

5

Opt for Easy-to-Clean Products Due to Frequent Use

Materials That Wipe Clean Easily Are Maintenance-Friendly

Materials That Wipe Clean Easily Are Maintenance-Friendly

Kids are messy, often dropping food and spilling drinks, so portable high chairs need frequent cleaning. Opt for a model that's low-maintenance. Products with plastic seat materials are particularly easy to clean, resisting stains even from spilled liquids.


On the other hand, seats made of polyester can be slightly harder to wipe clean and might stain easily from liquids or oils. Still, even polyester seats typically have removable covers that can be washed, so with regular care, any product can remain spotless.

Trays Prevent Table Messes and Reduce Cleanup Efforts

Trays Prevent Table Messes and Reduce Cleanup Efforts

It can take quite a while before children master their eating skills, and it's not unusual for the adult table to get messy. An attached tray can catch some of the mess, minimizing table mess. This is particularly handy in restaurants, making post-meal clean-ups easier and dining out less of a hassle. If ease of cleaning is your priority, consider a product with an included tray.

mybest's Top Choice! Comprehensive Safety Features With Smooth Installation

The Veeyoo Hook On Chair is designed to attach directly to a table. A particularly handy feature is the generously-sized pocket on the back of the seat, making it easy to store small items. Securing the chair is uncomplicated, and you only have to clamp it to the table's surface and twist the attachment part. The attachment component is robust and easy to grip, allowing for a secure fit with minimal effort.


One notable feature is its five-point harness, which covers both shoulders, both sides of the waist, and between the legs. This ensures your child is held securely in place. Additionally, it comes with a cover that hides the buckle, which minimizes the chance of your child unbuckling and slipping out. When folded, the portable high chair is impressively compact and lightweight, making it a breeze to transport. Plus, there's a dedicated bag attached to the underside of the seat for convenient storage.


On the downside, there's no included tray, and the seat material tends to retain stains, especially from oils, making it a bit challenging to clean. However, the seat cover is removable and can be thoroughly washed, which is definitely a plus. With its abundance of safety features, coupled with ease of portability and installation, this portable high chair is our top choice for use either at home or on the go.

Lightweight, Compact, and Easily Portable With Quick Setup

The Toogel Hook On Chair is a portable high chair that attaches directly to a table. The seat boasts a mesh pocket on the back, making it handy for stowing away small items. Attaching the chair couldn’t be simpler. All it takes is clamping it onto the table's edge and giving the flat-shaped attachment part a twist. Its user-friendly design ensures you can grip and tighten it with ease.


While its three-point harness might offer a bit less hold compared to some others, a cover hides the buckle, reducing the chances of your child unbuckling and climbing out. With its lightweight and compact design when folded, this chair is easy to transport. Additionally, it includes a storage bag, simplifying the storage process.


However, it doesn’t come with a tray, and the seat material can be tricky to clean, especially from oily stains. That said, the removable seat cover can be washed, so if it does get dirty, you can give it a thorough cleaning. Its portability and ease of installation make it an ideal choice for those who frequently dine out with their children. If you are often on the move, this could be a good high chair for you.

Easily Attaches for Immediate Use and Is Highly Portable

The Fast Table Chair from Inglesina is a hallmark product known for attaching directly to tables. It's a bestseller with a range of color options. The method of attachment is straightforward. All you have to do is simply clamp it to the table's edge and twist the fixing component. The thick, easy-to-hold fixing part offers a strong grip, making it simple to secure tightly.


While the chair uses a three-point harness, which might offer slightly less holding power, the inclusion of a cover to conceal the buckle ensures little worry about children unbuckling and escaping. When folded, the chair has a compact size and is relatively lightweight, providing hassle-free carrying. Additionally, a dedicated bag attached to the underside of the seat makes storage and transportation even more convenient.


On the downside, the chair lacks a tray, and the seat material can be challenging to clean, especially from oily stains that might lead to discoloration. However, the fact that you can remove and wash the seat cover offers a nice advantage when it comes to cleaning. With its easy installation and portability, this product is ideal for those who want a hassle-free setup in a short time.

Lightweight and Compact With Included Storage Bag and Easy Installation

The Pop 'n' Sit Portable Booster by Summer Infant Products is designed to attach to adult chairs. A handy mesh pocket on the back lets you store small items with ease. Securing the chair is easy. Wrap the straps around the backrest and seat of an adult chair, ensuring they are pulled tight to prevent any slack. The tray’s underside features a crotch guard to minimize sliding, yet the three-point harness appears to provide limited upper body support. This design might allow children to arch backward or make larger movements. Moreover, the absence of a cover over the buckle presents the possibility that a child might unbuckle themselves. 


It folds up quite compactly and is lightweight, making it easily portable. Plus, it comes with its own storage bag, which boosts its convenience factor. Even though it comes with a tray, the seat material can be a bit challenging to clean. Especially with oily spills, which can leave stains, it gives a sense of requiring some effort in maintenance.

Easy, Quick Cleaning and Smooth Installation

Artsana Of America's Chicco Pocket Snack Booster Seat is designed to attach to adult chairs. As the child grows, the seat height can be adjusted in three stages to accommodate their size. Securing it is not a challenge; just wrap the straps around the backrest and seat of an adult chair. However, ensure to pull them tight to avoid any slack. While the underside of the tray does come with a crotch guard to prevent sliding, the three-point harness might provide limited upper body support. This makes it seem like children could move around quite a bit. Another concern is the absence of a cover for the buckle, leading to worries that a child might unbuckle themselves.


When folded, it's a bit on the bulkier side, and it weighs over four pounds, so those frequently on the move might find it cumbersome. That being said, it comes with a carry strap, which could come in handy for short distances, like from the car to a restaurant. Made of plastic, the seat is easy to clean. It's resistant to oil stains, making maintenance effortless. Plus, with the included tray, clean-up after mealtime is also less of a hassle.

Light and Compact for Easy Carrying but Lacking in Safety Features

Hiccapop's OmniBoost Travel Booster Seat is designed to secure onto adult chairs. A notable feature of this seat is its inclusion of detachable stabilizers, which ensure stability when the seat is placed on the ground, and are particularly useful when on the go. Fixing it onto a chair is intuitive. You just wrap the straps around the chair's backrest and seat, then ensure the straps are pulled tight to achieve a snug fit. 


The seat employs a three-point harness, potentially allowing for more movement from smaller children. Additionally, the absence of a cover over the buckle necessitates close monitoring to prevent the child from unbuckling themselves. On the upside, the chair's foldable, compact design and lightweight nature make it easy to carry around. Additionally, the inclusion of a storage bag is a convenient bonus. Regarding the seat material, it can be somewhat challenging to clean, particularly with oil stains. However, the material is removable and washable, which is a significant advantage. Additionally, the chair includes a tray, reducing cleanup time after meals.

Easily Portable but Challenging to Maintain

Dreambaby's Grab 'n' Go Booster Seat is designed to attach to adult chairs. A handy feature is the storage space in the seat's backrest, perfect for stashing away small items. Securing the portable high chair is not a challenge. All you need to do is wrap the straps around the backrest and seat of the adult chair. Just make sure to pull them tight to ensure they don’t come loose. However, the three-point harness might not provide the best upper body support, so kids could potentially move around quite a bit. Furthermore, there's a risk kids might unbuckle themselves since there aren't covers hiding the two buckles.


On the plus side, its lightweight design and impressively compact size when folded make it both easy to carry and store. It also comes with a shoulder strap, which makes transportation simple. But there's a downside, as it doesn’t come with a tray, and the seat material can be somewhat challenging to clean. Oil stains might leave marks, making regular maintenance essential.

Easy to Clean, but Straps Don't Offer the Most Secure Hold

Summer Infant Products' Deluxe Comfort Folding Booster Seat is a convenient portable high chair that securely straps onto an adult chair. A key feature is the ability to adjust the seat height in two easy steps to accommodate the needs of a growing child. Setting it up is uncomplicated. Simply wrap the straps around the chair's backrest and seat and give them a pull to ensure everything is snug and secure. The seat employs a three-point harness, which may allow for more movement from children. Additionally, the lack of a cover for the buckle should be noted, especially if the child is adept at freeing themselves.


However, a positive aspect is that when folded, this booster seat becomes extremely compact and lightweight, potentially making it an excellent choice for those constantly on the move. Regarding its composition, the seat is constructed from plastic, a material known for facilitating swift clean-ups. Oily stains are notably less challenging to tackle. Additionally, the inclusion of a tray is certain to simplify the post-meal cleaning process.

Quick Attachment Is a Benefit, but It's Heavy

Artsana Of America's QuickSeat Hook-On Chair attaches directly to tables and comes equipped with a carry strap for ease of transportation. Setting it up is clear-cut. You simply clamp it onto the table's edge and pull the belt on the chair's back to secure it in place. In our tests, we found it could be quickly attached and held firmly to the table. The chair features a three-point harness, which may provide less restraint for the upper body, so children might find it easier to lean back or make big movements. The lack of a cover for the buckle could be viewed as a downside, too.


When folded, it's on the larger side, and weighing in at nine and a half pounds, it's also heavy. This might not be the top choice for those who frequently take it on the go. While it does come with a tray, the seat material is somewhat difficult to clean, especially when it comes to oily stains. This is another aspect to consider when choosing the right seat for your needs.

Convenient, Quick Attachment but a Challenge to Carry Around

Artsana Of America's Chicco FastLock 360 Hook-On Chair is designed to attach to tables and has the unique feature that the seat rotates a full 360 degrees. The installation process is quite simple: simply clamp it onto the table's edge and give the lever a few squeezes. We found that it could be secured firmly in no time, making it an ideal choice for those who appreciate a hassle-free setup. However, with its three-point harness, the restraint for the upper body might be a bit limited, making it easier for children to lean back or make larger movements. The absence of a cover for the buckle could be seen as a downside as well.


When it comes to portability, the chair does fold, but it's somewhat bulky. Weighing in at around nine pounds, it might not be the most convenient to carry around casually. On the plus side, the seat is crafted from a material that's easy to clean. Additionally, it comes with a tray, further simplifying the cleaning process and enhancing its overall usability.
