Review; Munchkin Travel Booster Seat

Lindam (the UK’s leading safety brand) have just merged with Californian brand Munchkin and have brought 60 of their products to the UK. Munchkin are a well known American brand, renowned for their quality and affordability. We were very kindly sent a booster seat to review.

The Munchkin booster seat is great for traveling as it has a handy storage compartment for cutlery. Keeping a spare set in there has actually proved invaluable, as when we went on holiday recently the cottage that we stayed in didn’t have any childrens cutlery. You can also chuck it over your shoulder and go, as it looks just like a bag.

We were really impressed with this booster seat, it’s light has a stray which makes it easy to sling over your shoulder and the funky fabric design is easy to keep clean. At £19.99 It represents excellent value for money. It can be secured to all types of chairs using a simple strap system and appears to be quite hard wearing (from our experience on holiday anyhow). If you are looking for a booster seat Munchkin are really worth checking out. Currently, you can purchase the range of Munchkin products in Wilkinson and Asda.

As a small caveat to this, I would say that if you are considering buying a booster seat instead of a highchair for daily use at your dining room table I would take a very good look at your table. We have found that we can’t use any booster seat on a regular basis at our table, simply because there is a lip of wood underneath the surface of the table running around the edge. If you put a booster seat on the chair there is no space for little legs between the booster and the table!

    We have one of those fabric ones and the fact it doesn't have a booster bit is a real downside (of course now having got the fabric one I can't justify a new booster… meh)

    I've just bought one of these, I already had a First Years one with the inflatable bottom and the Munchkin one is so much better and sturdier and the little compartment is an added bonus too. a brilliant product!
