Peg Perego Tatamia High Chair – not as great as we hoped :(

I have said it before and I will say it again, I love baby products that are multipurpose. The multifunction allows you to eliminate purchasing other products thereby reducing the plethora of baby products.

The Italian made Tatamia by Peg Perego is a multifunctional product that we wanted to love but there are too many faults that make it a tough buy. The Tatamia is more than just a high chair, it is also a baby recliner and a baby swing.

The Tatamia is a decent high chair but there are a few challenges with it. To unlock the wheels, you have to press and hold 2 buttons which can be a little difficult to do. The swing aspect is a manual pushed swing so it requires someone to push it to make it move. One huge benefit of a swing is to have a place for baby to sleep or rest and give parents a break. Finally there are lots of crevices where food gets stuck , making the high chair a pain to clean. Finally the lighter chair covers can stain.

I wish the Tatamia was better in so many ways because it has so much potential. The $399 sticker price does not make it worth it due to the faults. Sorry!
