10 Best Highchairs for Small Spaces

After testing dozens of the top highchairs (all of which can be found in’s latest Babble Best Highchairs feature), it was blatantly apparent that some highchairs are better on space than others. If you need a compact highchair — whether you’re short on space or you just don’t want a monstrous highchair in the corner of your kitchen — here are our 10 favorite picks:

  • Joovy Nook Highchair, $119.99 1 of 10
    Joovy Nook Highchair, $119.99
    This highchair won in our "best for spall spaces (budget)" category, and is also the perfect option for a part-time caregiver (like Grandma!). We love how it folds down like a beach chair, nice and compact.

  • Valco Baby Astro, $129.99 2 of 10
    Valco Baby Astro, $129.99
    This was a close runner-up to the Joovy Nook, and folds down just as compactly.

  • BabyBjorn Highchair, $300 3 of 10
    BabyBjorn Highchair, $300
    And if money isn't a factor (hi, gift registry!), this is the splurge version of a compact chair.
    See what surprised us, what we loved and what we didn't.
  • IKEA Antilop, $20 4 of 10
    IKEA Antilop, $20
    If we had to recommend ONE highchair for everyone, this would be it. It's ridiculously easy to clean, stackable, compact and — the best part? — 20 DOLLARS.

  • Mamas & Papas Go Eat, $179.99 5 of 10
    Mamas & Papas Go Eat, $179.99
    We're kind of obsessed with this one.
    See why.
  • Phil & Teds Lobster, $79.99 6 of 10
    Phil & Teds Lobster, $79.99
    When it comes to clip-on highchairs (which can be used full time, even for infants), this is our favorite.

  • Joovy Hook, $79.99 7 of 10
    Joovy Hook, $79.99
    A very close runner-up, which might actually be better for you than the Lobster.
    See if the Hook is right for you.
  • Maxi-Cosi Leila Highchair, $149.99 8 of 10
    Maxi-Cosi Leila Highchair, $149.99
    The type of highchair that a second-time mom would buy. Easy to clean, easy to store.

  • Bright Starts Ingenuity Highchair, $109 9 of 10
    Bright Starts Ingenuity Highchair, $109
    One-handed tray that swings open, an easier-to-clean fabric and height/recline/folding adjustability — at an affordable price.
    Buy your own.
  • Stokke Tripp Trapp, $250 – $380 10 of 10
    Stokke Tripp Trapp, $250 - $380
    This one is my personal favorite, which pulls right up to the table (even for babies!), making it a more compact option for tight spaces. And it eventually adjusts into an adult-size chair, making it a smart investment that you'll use forever.
