VIDEO: Phil & Teds Lobster Portable Chair Review

Last Updated on

We’ve used the Phil & teds lobster chair since our daughter was 6 months old. Here’s what our experience has been with it.

Back when our daughter was born, we lived in a unit in the city. My husband and I looked at several high chairs and found some nice looking ones but found that most of them are just plain huge! Sure you can fold them and put them away but with our lack of cupboard space at the time we would’ve had to leave it in the middle of the kitchen all the time.

Here’s our Phil and Teds Lobster Review and Demonstration


Perfect for Families with Limited Space
We needed something smaller which we could easily put away and we wanted something we could ideally take with us camping. When we found the Phil & Teds Lobster chair we knew this would be perfect. My only concern at the time was to know how much weight it could handle and how sturdy it really was.

Very Safe:
I have to say I was quite impressed when started using it. It clamps on pretty much any table and once tightened it doesn’t move at all and is really safe. You just need to make sure the table you attach it to is sturdy. It does last for a while too. Our daughter sat in it up until she was 3 1/2 years old.

Easy To Clean:
Although you can’t remove the canvas to put in the washing machine, it’s still really easy to clean. All you need is to wipe it down with a damp cloth and a bit of soap if needed.

Great for Travel:
For travel, it’s really light and you can easily fit it into a carry-on bag or suitcase. We took it everywhere; to visit family, camping and to the restaurant. It so much better than having to use the sometimes filthy restaurant high-chairs!
