    Phil & Teds Me Too High Chair

    Anyone have one? How do you like it? Pros/cons?

    I'd like something to use on the picnic table at the lake for DS. Would this fit the bill? Someone is selling one in a mama swap group that I'm a part of for $15, good deal?

    Re: Phil & Teds Me Too High Chair

    I've had one since 2008 & has been our main high chair for DD1 until DD2 needed it. It's been great for us & we take it traveling all the time since it's tiny. They retail new for $50, so $15 is an awesome deal!

    I wanted to get one of these but the owner of a local baby boutique that carries P&T told me they were recalled.

    Yes, they were due to the small rubberized pieces on the underside of the hooks coming off & slipping. Mine fell off a couple years ago & I never got the "fix"
    But I've also never had a problem & really tighten the heck out of it so there's no chance it would slip anyway. I've had a 30 pound child in it without the original rubber or the fix & never ever had it close to slipping.

    Thanks. She seemed to think they were no longer available but that doesn't seem to be the case from what I'm reading online.

    We have had one since 2007/2008 and love it. It works great and would be perfect for a picnic table

    I'm glad you mentioned this. Thank you! I never think to check recalls on things The repair kit is still available on the P&T website so I think I will give it a try. I asked the seller if she'd take $10 for it given the recall.

    FWIW - the recall kit is a rubber sleeve that fits over the arms to make it stick better. Personally, I don't think it does anything. My BFF got the recall kit & used it twice & then ditched it, using the Me Too without any rubber bits like I do. She also had the slipping issue that the recall was for. Again, I *personally* think it's just a matter of tightening - don't think the rubbery bits do much of anything other than giving a false sense of security. Much like using shelf-liner under a car seat install, KWIM?
