There is something about smart, innovative and easy to use children’s products that win me over instantly. If it makes life easier, a job quicker or task more simple my ears are pricked and the new Mountain Buggy pod certainly had me interested when I heard about it.
Everyone with children or even grandchildren will find at one point or another they will need a highchair for a little one. There a lots of great highchairs around that you can choose from but perhaps you live in an apartment or small home and space is at a premium (most highchairs have a large footprint, plus you don’t want to kick your toes every time!), perhaps you are short on storage space and need something more compact, perhaps you are on the road a lot and need the highchair to go with you and be lightweight and portable, or perhaps you just don’t want one of the large sized highchairs that are in store and want something with a more minimalist look and feel.
I love the idea of the pod. It is very compact, only 31 x 34 x 4cm when folded in its carry bag and weighs just under 1kg. If you saw it in its carry bag, you probably wouldn’t even realise it is a highchair at first. The size of the pod makes it ideal for traveling and popping in the suitcase. It is perfect for on the road, especially when there is no highchair or when they are dodgy looking highchairs that have left over food from the last child!.
The design simple makes it a cinch to use but it is still sturdy and safe, just as you would expect from anything that Mountain Buggy build. I will admit, it can be a bit scary when you think a highchair that doesn’t touch the ground will be holding your baby. But the pod is made from a strong aluminium frame and when Miss S is in it, the frame doesn’t even move in the slightest!
It is nice and comfy for her to sit in, taking a child up to 15kg, and the added safety clip gives you the extra security. It can also be cleaned fairly easy I found, as it is wipe friendly nylon type fabric. However it didn’t get too messy, as it positions little ones quite close to table, which I found helped reduce the mess.
It can be perfect for
- Trips to the park
- Trips to the coffee shop or diner
- Campervan/Caravan tables
- Cabin accommodation tables
- Traveling on the road
The pod is a great invention and very handy, but I think it is really important to check the table it will be used on first. It can’t go on glass tables and it can’t fit on a table that has the wooden frame under the edge (unless the frame is quite far under the table or it is an extension table ). We used it on the table in our house that has an extension on the end and gave us plenty of room to attach it. Lastly the table we used it on is very heavy and I think it is important to keep in mind the table you are going to put it on and if it can take the weight of the child and high chair once attached.
Overall I was really impressed with the Mountain Buggy pod and it is a great to have the option to be able to use a highchair anywhere and at anytime. Plus the space savings benefits speak for themselves! It get 5 stars!
Would you love to give the pod a go?
