quite handy


As you might have noticed Ross & I like to eat out and about. Now we have a kiddo who likes to be tucked up in bed by 8pm we enjoy going out for brunch instead of dinner! Lots of the places we go don't offer highchairs and thats cool by us as Tallulah has never really been that fond of them.  Though she is soooo wriggly that we have to take turns eating which means one of us ends up eating cold eggs...yum! Anyways, one of our favourite haunts doesn't have highchairs but we noticed this super cute couple who had this clever contraption which hooked onto any chair so their baby could sit at table with them. I sent Ross over to spy on the brand and when we got home we googled it and discovered it called the Handysitt and was made by those design-savvy DutchDanes! Anyways we priced them in Aus and they were over $100 and out of our budget but then I thought to try my old friend eBay and found one which was pick up only in PERTH...omg the eBay gods were looking out for me!

So I had a bidding war and won it for $24...omg I was jumping up and down in excitement...Tallulah thought I had gone loopy. Now I just hoped Tallulah liked it haha. Well, we took it out for a test run on the weekend and its super super! She loved it and Ross and I got to eat at the same time which is a nice change! I have to say its great to BYO high chair as you can keep it clean and there are no long legs that seem to always get in the way and seriously some of the communal highchairs are super gross and grotty! Yay for the Handysitt which at the moment its my new favourite baby item!

Ive never seen this before. What an awesome idea to have your own. :D

I have seen the state of some of the public high chair's, they are foul. I wouldn't put my girl in those!

Will definitely be keeping an eye out for one when Eve is bigger.

Looks like a rather useful contraption indeed!

Eeek I thought I already added a comment but it must not have submitted properly. Lily used one when she was in a cafe in London and I thought it was very cool too. You've convinced me to buy one for here though as I'm sick of using yucky communal ones and this one is so much more stylish ;-)
