The Svan High Chair's features include:
Beautiful design fits any home. The Svan High Chair has a timeless Swedish design and is offered in three wood finishes (natural, cherry, and whitewash) and three cushion colors - red, blue, and black (sold separately). The design fits into any home from contemporary to classical style and its compact size makes it also ideal for smaller kitchens or dining rooms.
The Svan High Chair's design benefits are particularly strong when used by a small child. The key features being the design of the seat, safety guard and tray.
The detachable tray enables the child to be seated anywhere to eat or play. The tray's lip keeps food and activities within reach, while the flat back edge of the tray makes it easy to clean. The tray easily snaps on and off and can be stored hanging off the safety guard.
Small Children need support to sit balanced and upright. The Svan Chair was designed so that the seat space provides optimal support for small children as they are developing upper body strength. This was accomplished through two unique design factors - a seat that can be easily adjusted in and out with a safety guard that can be fitted close to the child. Older children up to four years of age also can use the safety guard, providing additional safety for active kids.
The design of the safety guard provides unique support and safety. The high sides effectively prevent the child from sliding out of the seat by putting the legs together and slipping through a leg opening. The harness and safety guard together help prevent a child from standing up on the seat - a common and dangerous problem with many chairs. Unlike most other chairs, the L-shaped crotch bar effectively prevents the child from twisting and turning. In the Svan High Chair, the child's attention is directed forward making it a wonderful chair for focusing on activities or participating in the family meal.
In order to facilitate the lifting of the child in and out of the chair, the safety guard is designed to easily slide in and out. The position of the guard is adjusted with a wheel knob under the seat, which can be loosened and tightened with one hand. The guard is secured with a safety bolt so it will not become detached.
Adjustable to fit all ages (shown below without tray or safety guard):
The Svan High Chair adjusts to fit children from six months through adolescence with a unique adjustable design. The safety guard adjusts to support a child's body and the chair easily adapts to a child's individual needs for excellent back, seat and foot support. The versatility of this chair is amazing!
Light and easy to carry. The Svan High Chair is cleverly designed so that an adult can carry it without bumping your legs on the chair. Plus the chair can easily be carried with one hand using the opening in the backrest as a handle.
Easy to maintain. Parents love how easy it is to clean the Svan High Chair. The tray is designed to keep food and projects on the tray, yet clean off quickly. And the easily removable cushion which can be thrown in the laundry.
All wood construction. The natural, bentwood construction is a refreshing departure from plastic high chairs and booster seats that clutter a family's kitchen and dining room. The Svan High Chair blends with the most elegant home decor while providing a family-friendly, comfortable and safe seat for a child.
Family-oriented design. While a tray is provided, the purpose of the design is to enable a child to sit at the table with the family. With or without the safety guard, the chair can be pulled up to the table and the adjustable seat brings the child in line with the tabletop. Also, the footrest can be used as a step, which allows children from 2 years old and up to easily climb into the chair on their own. Children love the freedom this gives them & they have their own special seat at the table!
Meets or exceeds U.S. safety standards. The Svan Chair has been certified by JPMA for meeting their stringent safety standards for high chairs. This is the only fully adjustable high chair on the U.S. market to have this certification. And both models are certified!
