You have quite a few options when it comes to buying a high chair.

Some can be used for a long time, from when your child is an infant…

…right up until before they’re a teenager.

My wife and I decided on this option when we purchased the Cosatto Waffle Strudel which can be used from 6 months until your child is around 12 years old.

Our daughter, Mia is almost 4 years old now and the chair is still going well.

A lot easier to clean now that she no longer needs the tray!

However, we did look at a couple of other options from some other leading brands, including Stokke and Lalo.

Like Cosatto, both these companies make some high quality high chairs which are well made and durable.

For this blog post, I’d compare two of their main products.

  • Lalo High Chair
  • Stokke Clikk High Chair

Both these high chairs are not long-term options, but they are perfectly fine until your child reaches around 3 years old.

Graco also have a couple of good options with their Blossom and DuoDiner high chairs.

Let’s start with a quick overview of what you should consider when buying a high chair.

What to Consider When Buying a High Chair

Safety is the main concern when buying a highchair. Look for options that include a five-point harness, which helps prevent your child from creating enough momentum when twisting around to tip the chair over.

The best highchairs are also easy to assemble and store. If you are choosing a non-folding highchair, look for a chair that you can assemble and disassemble without any tools.

If the chair has wheels, ensure that the wheels are lockable to keep the chair from rolling around when you step out of the room. A safer option is to look for chairs with stationary legs and no wheels.

Your child’s age and weight should not exceed the manufacturer’s recommendation. Most high chairs include a limit for the weight and a recommended age range. Typically, you should not use a high chair until your child is old enough to sit up on their own.

Along with safety features, consider the overall design of the chair. Highchairs can get messy quickly, and require cleaning after almost every meal. Chairs with fewer parts or features are often easier to clean, as you can quickly wipe down the surfaces after eating.

Comfort is also an issue if you want your child to enjoy their meals. Some highchairs may not come with a seat cushion, which can become a problem during long meals.

Let’s dig in and start looking at these two high chairs by Lalo and Stokke:

Detailed Comparison

Design

Winner: Lalo

The Lalo highchair and Stokke Clikk highchair are both versatile chairs that can provide extended use compared to standard highchairs. Both options come with a seat, a food tray, a cushion, a footrest, and a harness. However, the design of the Lalo chair provides greater functionality.

The Lalo highchair is a 2-in-1 piece of furniture that works as both a high chair and a play chair. It includes a set of highchair legs and a set of play chair legs, allowing you to switch between the two as your child grows.

Size

Winner: Lalo

Although both high chairs are similar in size, the legs of the Stokke Clikk high chair take up a little more space compared to the Lalo chair, which may be an issue in a small room.

Furthermore, when using the Lalo Chair as a play chair, the size becomes even smaller, at just 21 x 16 x 16 inches.

Weight

Winner: Stokke Clikk

Both chairs have similar weight, but the Stokke is slightly lighter. Both high chairs have a maximum weight limit of 33 pounds, designed for children between the ages of 6 months and 3 years.

Assembly

Winner: Stokke Clikk

Both the Lalo highchair and the Stokke Clikk highchair do not require tools for assembly. You simply click the chair legs into the seat and snap the other components into place.

Assembling either chair should only take a minute or two. However, some users have had trouble attaching the harness on the tray on the Lalo chair without using both hands.

Ease of Cleaning

Draw

These chairs feature smooth plastic materials and durable wooden legs that you can quickly wipe down after each meal. There are no crevices or cracks for food to get stuck in and the trays are dishwasher safe.

Comfort

Draw

The chairs have the same rounded design and come with cushions, providing a comfy spot for your little one to sit. The footrests are also adjustable, allowing the chair to grow with your child.

Price

Winner: Stokke Clikk

The suggested retail price for the Lalo chair is a little higher compared to the Stokke Clikk chair. However, when the Lalo chair is on sale, the prices are closely matched.

Bottom Line

OVERALL WINNER: Lalo High Chair (only just!)

This is a really hard call.

Both options are well-designed, sturdy and safe options for your child. I think if we were to compare them just as high chairs, then the Stokke Clikk would edge it. However, the functionality of the Lalo wins it for me.

Being able to use the Lalo as a play chair as well is an innovative design feature, and it means you can get more out of the product, than just using it as a high chair.

And it’s not that much more expensive than the Stokke Clikk overall.
