This week High Chairs enter the Babesta Ring to see who will emerge victorious from the seat sortie…

Let’s kick things off with THE NUNA ZAAZ!

Endurance tested from when your child can sit upright unaided up to 220lbs, this chair will certainly be in the game for a long time.  To compliment it’s endurance, the ZAAZ is flexibly designed to grow with your child.  A lift behind the footrest adjusts height and air foam cushions support bottoms of all sizes so you can customize the seat to any size, height, or amount of wiggles.  A three or five point anti-loop harness with quick release button allows for ultimate safety and peace of mind.  It’s no crevice design allows for easy cleaning and all plastic components are removable and dishwasher safe.  It’s made of high-quality, BPA-, PVC-, and DEHP-free and weighs in at 22.1lbs.

Moving around the ring, we meet THE BLOOM FRESCO!

Friday Face-Off: Let’s Bounce

BABYSITTER VS COCO GO

Clockwise from the left: Babysitter and Coco Bouncer

This week in the ring we introduce two of our favorite contenders for the Lightweight/Travel Bouncer Title.  Let’s meet the competitors, shall we?

IN THIS CORNER:  BLOOM’S COCO GO BOUNCER!

With three easy recline positions – fully flat, semi-upright, and fully upright – this bouncer with it’s two speed concealed vibration unit weighs in at 7.5lbs.  For families on the go, the Coco Go includes an easy travel bag.  The fabric components are machine washable, the wood elements are birch in three beautiful finishes, and the anti-skid base includes front and rear retractable feet.  Suitable for newborn to 20lbs, this bouncer is certainly a strong contender for the title.

IN THE OTHER CORNER: BABY BJORN’S BABYSITTER!

Whether for play, rest, or sleep, this bouncer transforms your child’s movements into a soothing rocking motion to refine balance and motor skills while keeping your hands free.  This bouncer is also ready to travel, easily folding into a compact travel position and weighing in at just 5lbs.  Developed in close collaboration with pediatricians, the Babysitter features an ergonomic design to properly support your child – from newborn up to about 2 years – and distribute their weight evenly.  The Babysitter is made of machine-washable, guaranteed child safe fabrics and the reversible fabrics and harness allow you to create several color schemes.

Now that you’ve been introduced to the competitors, LET THE GAMES BEGIN! (In the comments of course, let us know what you think!)
