Today was a day for muffins, coffee and visits with family. But even when lugging around all my baby gear to make my toddler’s and newborn’s visit comfortable (you know exactly what I mean: diaper bag, playpen, sound machine, wrap, the list goes on…) bringing Annaliese’s standing highchair is not an option when we are visiting family.
Other than being one of my best baby paraphernalia travel hacks yet, I loved how it brings your little one to the table. I always feel when she is in a high chair she is kind of excluded so this feels so much more sociable. Okay, that can be a little bit difficult when she wants to throw the salt and pepper around but handy when all she wants to do is eat from my plate – despite the fact it’s the same as her food. Don’t all babies do this, or is it only ours?
It is the perfect size for taking around backpacking or any other travel ventures. So definitely fits in with my pre-requisites on all baby items of being light-weight, compact and comfortable.
"The biggest plus side of this portable highchair is that it only weighs 2.2lbs and folds nicely into a compact flat carry tote that can be tossed in your stroller basket, placed in a large diaper bag or carried using the provided handles. Once removed from the tote the only set-up needed is securing it to a table using the screw on clamps. It’s incredibly sturdy in its build and I have no concerns what so ever when my toddler is in it provided it’s attached to an appropriate surface. The frame is made of solid aluminum and the clamps are covered in thick non-slip rubber so the chair will not move once in place."
Our pod portable high chair was awarded silver in the Best Travel High Chair Awards by Nursery Trader, 2013!
"It is a very robust and sturdy construction as you would expect from Mountain Buggy - and is built to last. It is very easy to fold and you can do so in a jiffy - and is attached to the table by solid aluminium clamps. It's a strong piece of kit that does everything that you expect it would, allowing your little one to eat at the table with you where ever you are."

"Where, when, how to keep the process somewhat tidy has often been a challenge for me, but luckily, the Mountain Buggy POD has made this much more convenient.
Despite the incredibly easy manner in which it is able to connect to any table, its sturdiness and ability to stably hold my child is astonishing. Prior to getting the POD, I had used the standard highchair and even those highchairs you strap onto a pre-existing chair, but neither were as stable especially with a growing, active, mobile child, and they both took up unnecessary space."
"The Mountain Buggy pod is a portable highchair that not only has the looks but is also fitted with lots of clever features just like you’d expect from a Mountain Buggy product. The innovative design of the pod highchair is perfect for busy parents on the go who don’t want to lug around a bulky highchair. Simply click the pod onto table tops and benches to create an instant child seat, whether you are inside or outside."
" As Mountain Buggy products tend to be, this is a well thought-out, robust product.It comes with a little travel bag which is really useful for popping bibs / wipes etc into (as well as the pod, of course!). Great for leaving it in the car with a spare bib and a couple of wipes… all ready to roll!..."
"It’s about relevance; it’s about convenience; it’s about offering a choice – a choice of a practical product that bears all the hallmarks of the Mountain Buggy brand. pod is a great and hygienic product that is designed for eating out – ready to use at your convenience."
"There is something about smart, innovative and easy to use children’s products that win me over instantly. If it makes life easier, a job quicker or a task more simple my ears are pricked, and the new Mountain Buggy pod certainly had me interested when I heard about it."
