We got this high chair as a gift with our first child, and it surprisingly lasted for all three of our babies. Its pretty big and bulky, the seat originally reclined (but broke after the first year), it has a tray insert that can be put in the dishwasher (but we just washed it by hand). It has brakes on the four wheels, but they don't seem to be quite solid enough. Its an ok high chair that does its job, but probably would never choose it in the first place. Sturdiness Its sturdy enough, but the breaks could be better on it. My four year old can glide it around the kitchen with her brother sitting in it. The reclining chair is always falling back, and its hard to keep the baby upright. I don't feel its unsafe, but its definitely not sturdy after the first year. Design The idea of a reclining feeding position seemed neat, but its not really useful. There have been rare occasions where my child has fallen asleep while sitting in the high chair, and we have reclined the seat. But I would prefer a different chair that was more solid. Safety It does its job, standard seat for the baby. There is a seat belt around the child, and there is a special locking mechanism for the tray. There have been a few times where the tray hasn't clicked completely in place, and my child has been able to kick the tray off and food has flown all over the ground, but it usually works fine. Ease of Cleaning You can take off the entire seat part and just throw it into the washing machine to clean. The tray is pretty standard, I just hand wash. There is a place between the top and bottom of the seat, where food likes to get stuck. You can get it out for the most part though, its just annoying sometimes.
