Easy Summer Travel Week pick: Phil & Teds Metoo travel high chair

Phil & Teds MetooOne of the greatest joys of travel is not having to cook, do dishes or feel the slightest bit insulted when one of my kids pushes something off their plate. Yes, I do love eating out, though I know all too well what can happen when I arrive at some funky little eatery for lunch and the few kids’ high chairs are already in use: Unrestrained toddler mayhem.

Thankfully, BYOHC, or bring-your-own-high-chair, isn’t as crazy as
it sounds, especially if you check out the Phil & Teds Metoo travel high chair.

It’s the perfect little folding high chair for those who can sit up on their own but are way too small and wiggly to sit in a grown-up chair comfortably. Attaching it doesn’t take a Masters in Engineering, but rather a few twists of the knobs which secures the sturdy aluminum frame to a tabletop or counter.

And though it’s a mere two pounds, the Metoo can hold kids up to 40 pounds but is still small enough to be tossed into the stroller storage basket when mealtime is over. And if your table looks anything like mine after a meal, you can beat a hasty exit before the waitstaff has a chance to see the aftermath. Just don’t forget the big tip. -Christina

    This isn’t new. I used this for my three girls 25 years ago, today I’ve it for my grandchildren. I don’t know how anyone can survive without it. germ free and folding convenience. They sit still because they’re just like you. I love this.

    Great Product! I don’t know why I didn’t buy one when my two were small…. I hated putting them in restaurant highchairs! Whould have also worked when visiting grandmas.

    This was one of my absolute favorite baby gear items we had. I LOVED this chair! It was so compact and light that it was perfect to take anywhere.

    I have one of these that I got for my daughter (who is now 4) and it was great. But now that I have an almost 2 year old son it is the ONLY way we can go out to eat! It is completely necessary or he will immediately climb out of the restaurant high chair. I love love love it. We bring it with us everywhere.
