This is a beautiful highchair for my first grandchild. i wanted something that didn't look like junk and that could be used for many kids. This looks so nice in our home with all the dark wood that we have. it is well made. The pad is very nice and washable. The only problem we had was that directions for putting it together are inside the packaged pad which we didn't open until we were done. it would have been helpful to have so look for it when you get yours! Luckily my hubby is very handy and figured it out!
