You have some friends over and decide to remove the booster seat from the chair so you can all have a place to sit at the table. It comes off and (yikes!) the booster seat was hiding a mass of shriveled peas, bread crumbs, and mystery meats (I swear I cleaned under there yesterday!). Although the food can be wiped away, the terrible scratches cannot (I thought there were pads on that booster seat!!?). An embarassing experience, and not a safe way to dry meats. This has happened to me, and I'm sure I'm not alone.
The Kaboost Portable Chair Booster removes my two biggest complaints about booster seats: filthiness and destruction of my furniture. As a bonus, it also removes my little boy's biggest complaint: not sitting in a big chair like the rest of us.
The Kaboost stretches to fit almost any chair and can be flipped over to provide a higher or lower level of boost. It has rubber grips in all the right places, so it sticks to the chair even if you pick the chair up, and it doesn't damage my chair or my floor, and keeps my little guy safe. See a demo here.
The Kaboost is designed for children ages 20 months to 6 years. I love that Target.com points out that it can be used for "children up to 300 lbs." If you have a 300 lb. child, I would suggest you don't get this booster. Perhaps your child should be jogging in place as they eat instead.
I really like the Kaboost a lot. The only issue I have is the result of my vanity. The Kaboost makes one chair higher than the rest. In our kitchen, my little guy's chair is in a position in the room so its height difference isn't as noticeable. If it bothered me more, I would just buy another Kaboost for my 5 year old daughter and put them each at the heads of the table. I have read others complain that the rubber grips work a little too well and requires you to lift the whole chair when you want to move it. It's true. The solution? We don't move it. The chair stays just far enough away from the table for our 3 year old to slide in and out. He usually crosses his legs while he eats. It works for us, but I'm not sure how well that would work for a younger child to climb in on their own.
