  • Tray
  • Top tray is dishwasher safe.

  • Other Considerations
  • Transitional chair from 6 months to 3 years or once child reaches 38 inches.
  • Assembling the chair could be difficult if an individual has limited hand function or trunk control having to bend down to pick up the legs to insert them in the chair; however, they clip in easily which could be doable with minimal effort.
  • No wheels.
