I Heart Antilop.

So, after much feverish pondering for the better part of a month, Dean and I finally decided to simply *splurge* and purchase the Antilop highchair from IKEA this weekend. Well, Dean was actually working so I went with my friend Asami and her little one, Kai. But Dean was in on the decision as much was discussed beforehand.

Kai, who is nearly 18 months old has this chair and the rather spendy Stokke Tripp Trapp--and Asami simply swears by the IKEA bargain. If Asami's glowing recommendation wasn't enough to seal the deal, the review on Droolicious.com called "7 Days Of Highchairs", certainly was.

Once I recovered from pouting away my dreams at a Svan chair purchase, I must say, so far so good with the Antilop. Shelling out a whopping $25.00 ($19.99 + $5.00 for the tray) for simple modern efficiency that's easy to clean is enough for me to make the drive out to the valley on a sultry Saturday afternoon . . . anytime. And, our little foodie simply cannot get enough of it!

Glad to see you got the move all figured out! Sorry I didn't get you info sooner! :)

I was hoping you would fill us in on your IKEA purchase. I've been lusting after the Svan too, but I just can't pull the trigger. Toooo pricey! I'm going to IKEA this week! Thank you!

Hmm... you're making me rethink my whole Me Too arrangement (which isn't working all that well anyway).

I was just looking at this exact high chair last night and was thinking about going and getting one this week! Good to know that you like it! Thanks!

Is the Me Too one of the ones that attaches to the table?? If so, we seriously thought about those. But we already had to take the leaf out of the dining room table and didn't want to usurp more space by attaching a chair for Noey to it too.

We enjoy cooking, eating and entertaining and the dining room is already quickly becoming the "storage room for all furniture with no place to go because of baby" room.

The Antilop is small--even though it's a stand alone. AND easy to move and clean to boot!

oh geez... The Svan was definitely my top choice for when Fin needs a high chair but I just might get one of these first!!
