I was given this European High Chair to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel in exchange for my honest review. The opinions below are my own.
Practical and Beautiful
Let me start by saying that there are really too many positives to list in a single review when it comes to the Cybex LEMO Chair. The low profile design is sleek looking in our kitchen area. It does not stand out like the stereotypical bulky baby gear, and there are plenty of unique color options to suit your individual taste. The comfort inlay on the LEMO appears durable and easily withstood a thorough wiping after an especially messy meal. I also found that the chair’s snack tray removed quickly for easy cleaning at the sink.
The wheeled back legs on the LEMO are a nice touch and provide excellent maneuverability, making this seat perfect for tight spaces. Built in rubber non-scratch pads on the front feet are a lifesaver for wood floors, especially if you have children who are furniture movers (looking at you, Zella). This seat also provides for better posture with a fully adjustable seat height, depth, and footrest height. Penn sat up far straighter in the LEMO than when compared to his old high chair.
Not Just for Babies
I love the versatility this seat gives our family. We have used the LEMO as an extra chair for an adult at our formal dining table. We have also utilized the LEMO as the primary high chair for our youngest (15 months). Zella is very well supported in the high chair when it is pulled up to the kitchen table. Perhaps the best part about the LEMO is the actual adjusting process. This is truly the most smooth gliding and easiest adjusting high chair out there. Both the footrest and seat that are completely customizable for babies all the way up to adults.
Only a Slight Downside
The Cybex LEMO Chair is excellent, but not perfect. Although there are very few bolts and tools to mess with when putting together the chair, the instructions for the LEMO left a bit to be desired and led us on an IKEA style adventure game of Pictionary. The baby set can also be difficult to install and remove. Strangely enough, the baby set *must* be removed in order to take off both pieces of the comfort inlay, which is a bit of a hassle if you need more than a quick wipe down of the fabric.
Some may complain about the smaller snack tray, but what it lacks in space it makes up for in its’ compact design and unobtrusive footprint. Like I mentioned before, this chair is really designed to work great in smaller spaces.
(I did find that despite trying to adjust it, the snack tray tilts ever so slightly forward.)
Shopaholic and Babies Approval
If you are looking for a high chair that blends in seamlessly with transitional decor and will grow with your child from age 0 to 99, you can not go wrong with the Cybex LEMO Chair.
