Nuna Zaaz Highchair - A Review

Baby B is now 7 months old and we are well on our way with weaning.
It is going surprisingly well so far, and as long as you time it right and he is not too hungry or tired, he will eat just about anything.  This includes stealing off anyone elses plate if they have carelessly left within arms reach.  Yesterday he stole a grape today and ate it whole.  I thought he might spit the skin out but no, all gone!

As with C, I have been doing a mixture of finger food and puree.  It worked well for C and while B seems happy I see no reason to change.

C has always used a small Mama and Papa's travel highchair which attaches to the dining chair.  This converts to a toddler booster seat once they get older.  DH was adamant he did not want a large cumbersome highchair cluttering up the dining room.
As B is such a big boy we decided to not to move C out of her seat, but instead buy B a new highchair.
I had a look through the Kiddicare Summer Sale last month and came across the Nuna Zaaz Highchair.

I was attracted to it initially because the legs did not splay out from the body, therefore taking up a smaller floor area than many highchairs and preventing a trip hazard.
Secondly, because it is designed to sit at the dining table.  Our dining set only has 5 chairs instead of the original 6 therefore having a highchair fit the empty space suited us perfectly.
Thirdly, the fact it changed into a toddler chair and then into an older child's chair meant that it solved our missing dining chair problems for the foreseeable future!

Further discussions with DH actually resulted in us purchasing 2 of these chairs!
One for C and one for B.
The little toddler booster could then go to my parents to use when we stayed there.

So here we are with 2 new Nuna Zaaz highchairs in Orange.

The Zaaz boasts the following key features:
  • customise the ZAAZ to any size, height or amount of wiggles
  • a hidden lift behind the footrest adjusts height easily and lets baby join in at the table
  • three or five point anti-loop harness, featuring quick click release button provides ultimate safety and peace of mind
  • unique air-foam cushion custom-fits each chair and pads both small and bigger bottoms
  • no-crevice design outwits crumbs and cleans up like a dream
  • removable plastic components are dishwasher safe
  • extraordinarily sleek leg base, chic colour options and smart look makes the ZAAZ feel like designer furniture
  • made of high quality materials and is bpa, pvc, and dehp free

We have customised our Zaaz for each of our children. B has it in full "baby"mode with a five point harness and the tray attached.
C has hers 2 stages on with both the tray and safety bar removed and only a 3 point harness.
Both are currently using the chair at its maximum height.
The removal of the safety bar on C's chair allows it to be tucked away neatly under the dining table when not in use just like a standard dining chair.

Occasionally if we have visitors and B is asleep I will transform his highchair into an adult seat for the duration of the meal.  The clear instruction manual that comes with the product makes this a quick and painless transformation.

The smooth "no crevice" design definitely helps the item stay clean and hygienic, and the tray is even dishwasher safe.  There is unfortunately one space where the safety bar attaches to the base which is a crumb magnet and actually quite hard to clean out.

We were concerned that the more vertical legs may make the highchair less stable however the product has enough weight to easily hold it in place.
I love the design of this highchair and although I am sure it was designed with modern minimalist kitchens in mind, it looks just as at home in our traditional dining room.

The RRP for this highchair is £180 which would have been a little out of our price range, especially as we ended up buying two, however purchasing this item in the sale made it much better value for money.  I would definately recommend this highchair to friends if it was within their budget and hope to be using ours for many years to come.
