Review: The First Years Mickey Mouse Feeding & Activity Seat

If you and your babe are a Disney lover, then this seat is a great pick. The First Years Mickey Mouse Helping Hands Feeding and Activity Seat, available at Walmart, is a cute, compact feeding seat.

When it arrived in the mail, Zekie couldn’t wait to get it out of the box, even though he doesn’t need it (though it has a weight limit of 50 lbs, so he definitely still fits in the limits). You are not supposed to use this chair on the floor, but I had a hard time keeping Zekie and Harbor off of it while I unpacked it and put it together. It took maybe five minutes to snap the back on and attach the straps, and then we attached it to a chair to give it a try.

The seat has two straps, one that attaches around the back of a chair and one that attaches under the chair seat, and then you pull them to tighten them around the chair. We have wider kitchen chairs and we still had plenty of room to make it bigger so I think this seat will fit on a large variety of chairs.

There is a tray that you can attach at different levels depending on the size of your kiddo or you can leave it completely off and scoot the chair all the way up to your table. I think the trays are easier to clean off the caked on food then my kitchen table so we used the tray. The tray comes with its own accessories as well. A Mickey hand cup holder and a rollerball can be snapped on or off the tray and 2 suction cup toys are also included. We’ve never had great luck with suction cup dinnerware or toys and this wasn’t any different. Harbor easily plucked the two toys off the tray after playing with them for a minute and promptly threw them on the floor.

They may have a better chance with a younger child, but they definitely won’t last long on a tray for anyone older than a year. This isn’t a make or break for me, since the toys aren’t why I would be buying the seat anyway and Harbor did still play with the toys even when they weren’t attached.

The back of the seat has a small storage slot for you to store a bib or the toys. I think this could be even better if it could be made big enough to hold the tray when not in use too.

I think this would be perfect for anyone that has a small kitchen and doesn’t want a large highchair. It’s easy to clean and quick to set up. Also, I think this will be great for us to have around when we have friends with little ones visiting and we need an extra seat for them.
