Being old school when it comes to baby/toddler gear items, I don't get too excited over most newer baby furnishings on the market these days. However, today I accidently stumbled across this newer style child booster seat for home use at mealtime and I haven't gotten this excited about a baby gear item in years! Most modern boosters I've seen have been little more than a square piece of hard plastic a-la fast food restaurants. Mutsy, however, has come out with a really nice one: Mutsy Grow Up Booster Seat -Apple Green- - eBay (item 270527945931 end time Feb-14-10 12:46:00 PST)
It has a nicely padded seat and backrest, safety straps (though no doubt way to short for a teen or small adult, and won't scratch up the chair it's sitting on. I could just imagine myself sitting in one of these comfy little booster seats and having a meal or snack. The seat dimensions on the Mutsy baby products site show it's large enough to fit my bottom with no tight squeezing needed. It would probably raise me up too uncomfortably high at the dinner table, but be just the right height at our kitchen lunch counter. Now to make some plans for getting one. And here I thought the days of cool baby/toddler gear items were long gone.
