How we rate baby high chairs

Our review compares baby high chairs on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which baby high chair they think is best!


Canstar Blue surveyed 269 Australians for their feedback on the baby high chair(s) they’ve purchased and used in the last three years. Note: survey respondents must also be the parent or guardian of at least one child under the age of six.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.


Respondents rate their satisfaction with their baby high chair brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a baby high chair brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Ease of use: the baby high chair is easy to set up and use, with sufficient instructions provided.
  • Comfort & support: the baby high chair provided enough back support and was perceivably comfortable for the baby to sit in (i.e. the baby could sit happily in it for a meal, etc.).
  • Design: the baby high chair was aesthetically pleasing, and functionally designed.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and performance of the baby high chair.
  • Durability: the baby high chair was sturdily constructed and had performed as expected given frequency of use.
  • Features & functionality: the baby high chair came with additional features to help protect or entertain the baby, (i.e. removable tray, etc.).

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  • IKEA
  • Kmart
  • Big W
