Babies come with a lot of gear, and while there are tons of decisions to make, I know I can always rely on Graco® (we have tons of items from when Red was little. The “bump” and I attended a little party last week to learn more about the Swivi Seat™ Highchair, which I took home and am readying for baby #2! Our host had the highchair all set up for a demo, hands-on exploration, and even a few attendees from the party “modeled” the product. The new Graco® Swivi Seat™ Highchair swivels 360 degrees not only to give baby an awesome view, but to allow baby to switch between caregivers and allow more versatile access during mealtimes and more.
While exploring the highchair, I discovered that there are two pads – a full cover seat cushion and a baby insert, which removes easily in one piece and allows for easy cleaning. Make sure to check out my video below for a full clip on how to clean and remove the seat cushions – it’s a snap! The foot rest easily slides out to be moved (unlike my old Graco highchair!) and the swivel feature is by far the neatest thing about the highchair. Simply lift the large “Graco” handle on either side of the chair, and rotate the secure seat. When the handle is not lifted, the seat locks every 90 degrees. If the handle is held up, you can have a continuous 360 degree turn while baby safely rides in the Graco Swivi Seat Highchair.
When you have a little baby, ease and accessibility are key. The 4 position full recline caters to the littlest of diners as well as larger toddlers, which are extremely comfortable (our eldest toddler “model” didn’t want to leave the chair at all!) The legrest props up to support a little baby’s legs, too! The ONE HAND tray removal is awesome! Hold baby with one arm and with a single hand, squeeze the lever under the tray to remove and slide out. For those messy, squirmy babies (mine included…), the five point harness in the seat clips in easily and the belts are machine washable. Along with all of these fantastic features, there’s also a stand-alone FOLD option and a seat height adjust (5 positions).
The only thing I’m really missing in this model are the wheels and brakes. I have a wide kitchen, with a master on the main. I love being able to bring baby with me as I scoot around the house, and when I’m cleaning and cooking, baby-wearing isn’t always an option. But, if you’re looking to give baby a view and allow versatile access between caregivers with the safety of a five point harness, this highchair really covers it all. Below is the video I mentioned earlier – it shows the Graco Swivi Seat Highchair in action, as well as a few cute “models” and vantage points I didn’t cover here. Take a peek, and be sure to leave me a comment!
