Most Helpful Reviews for Phil & Teds Lobster Clip On Chair.

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – We love how compact this travel highchair is. We can put it in the basket of our stroller and whip it out as needed; it could probably even fit in a regular backpack or a very large diaper bag. The foldaway design is genius and we like the fact that it comes with/fits in its own small bag…. That said, the two downsides to this otherwise very nicely-designed product are:… (read more and buy it at
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – I had already purchased the Inglesina Fast Chair…. But we decided that we’d probably prefer a snap on table with a tray as our daughter enters the “messy-eating-by-herself” stage. Enter the P&T Lobster. The P&T looks more stylish, is sleek, and has some serious clamp-on ability — I certainly liked it better than the Inglesina. The only problem I had is that my daughter didn’t!… (read more and buy it at
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – After owning this for over a month I haven’t been able to get much use out of it. Like the other reviews said, it doesn’t work everywhere….It does have some upgrades over the Phil & Teds Metoo chair…. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … Using your own hook-on chair in a restaurant is so much nicer — baby is at table level and more secure than the standard restaurant high chair. The chair is very secure and attaches to most (but not all) tables. It’s easy to adjust and get baby in and out. The chair folds down small and has a carrying case. The quality of the product is great — this chair looks like it will last…. The only downside is that the tray doesn’t always stay put…. (read more and buy it at
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … Very portable and easy to set up. Great for sitting in booths and not having your little one out in the aisle, plus the low profile right up against the table allows your child to be eating with you right at the table. Only draw back is you need to have a table with a solid edge…. (read more and buy it at

What the Makers Say

  • Hygiene of genie. All your cleaning wishes granted. No need to subject your little angel to any more grubby restaurant highchairs! Junior will love dining out on Lobster. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will wipe right off the easy clean fabric. Or simply slide the seat out of the frame and handwash. Lobster genius.
  • Snug & secure.There’ll be no wriggling out of this one! Smaller children often have trouble sitting securely in most regular highchairs. The comfy padded shoulder straps and 5-point safety harness allow for wriggle room – not wriggle through!
  • Food tray.Catches spills, but not food fights. The wide, resilient food tray slides securely under the clamp grips, to protect the table surface from attack by food and colouring crayons. We’ve also included an illustrated tray insert of that cheeky lobster ‘Lobbie’. Check out the video to see more of his adventures!
