Little Helper offer a range of brilliant kid-friendly furniture that help your child to get creative and have fun while staying safe. We were lucky enough to try out the FunPod – a multi-functional kitchen and craft safety stand that comes in a version that doubles up as a high-chair. The FunPod High-Chair is a pretty nifty piece of kit. Both Biggest and Littlest loved it and have been using several of its functions.
In addition, we are giving away a brilliant Magic Craft Bundle from Little Helper – just the thing to get your little ones imaginations and creative sides buzzing. Please see the Rafflecopter below for details as to how to enter the competition.
FunPod High-Chair Review
The brilliant thing about the FunPod High-Chair is that is is actually five products in one. It can be used as a safety stand in the kitchen, a conventional high-chair, a low chair, can be used with or without the tray AND it is entirely height adjustable. This means it can be used with bigger kids and babies alike from six months to five years. Biggest is getting the most use from using the pod to help in the kitchen. We made the delicious and simple Festive Gingerbread Recipe from Laura at Life with Baby Kicks and Biggest absolutely loved helping out in the FunPod –
For us, the extra stability and safety than the FunPod provides is invaluable. Biggest has delayed fine and gross motor skills relating to his autism and probable dyspraxia. This means he has poor balance and he finds climbing on to steps and maintaining balance very difficult. The FunPod removed this problem entirely and, as a result, he was able to enjoy baking with me for the first time. He did not become distressed or uncomfortable once. We spent a wonderful afternoon and I hope it is the first of many. I will certainly remember it for a long time.
Littlest is using the other functions of the chair more at the moment, though she has used the safety stand a few times too. She most enjoys using the stand alone low-level chair, as is enables her to colour and craft in different locations easily. The high-chair function is also great as the overall pod is so sturdy and secure.
The FunPod High-Chair is great. It’s well-made, sturdy, and all the functions work brilliantly. I would say there is only one real disadvantage, and that is the price. The high-chair version retails at £219.19. I agree, this is a lot. However, many stylish wooden high-chairs are priced similarly. In addition, the fact that the FunPod can be used from six months right up to five years, and the fact that it has several uses, means that you could get A LOT of use and value for money from the product. If you have two children who are a few years apart, you could conceivably use it for many years.
Little Helper also sell the FunPod without the high-chair attachment, in a range of colours, for the lower price of £117.99.
