Heavy Duty High Chair

When I initially came across Keekaroo’s made in the USA high chairs, I was biased towards the design. (They are very attractive, especially compared to the plastic jungle out there.)  I also knew that the impermeable seat cushion would be nice and easy to wipe down.  But it wasn’t until I had a toddler on… Continue reading Heavy Duty High Chair
