Hisita

contoured injection molded polypropolene. weighs 4.5 pounds My 19 month old daughter made use of regular chairs and booster seat while on a holiday trip. I caught her twice in mid-air tumbling backward standing on a regular chair and twice she slid under the table sitting in a booster seat. A year later we launched the Hisita (high-seat-tah) Its available on the net and is locally in small stores. Young mothers finding it difficult to relate to it.

I am proud of this invention and my daughter used it till she became 7 years old. It gave her the right height and easy access to a regular chair. She sat just like her big brother starting at the age of 19 months. Ergonomic experts had raving remarks about it. see www.taylordergo.com As an inventor I am disappointed that the consumer does not respond favorable for reasons I failed to understand unfortunately.

As a mother of 4 children 18, 16, 14 and 3, I would have never put them in a raised chair. My booster seats were extremely secure to the chairs so as not to wiggle and the children were belted into the booster seats. Children shouldn't be left alone in any booster seat to where they end up dangling from them. That's a pretty good indication that they are to young. Raising a regular chair puts them at risk of falling from a greater height, when they shouldn't be on a chair at all at 19 months.Most people take their highchair, remove the tray and push them up to the table if they want to sit like that. This is what I do for my 3 year old.This way they are still safe and the highchair table is replaced with the dinner table.I hope this helps you better understand the way most parents think when it comes to the safety of their children. In my opinion this product is  unsafe for small children.

Sorry

Thankfully, Hisita is the perfect booster chair / highchair!

I have to say that I own one of these for my 2 year old and he has been using it for sometime now. I heard about it from day cares around the Toronto area when my son began pushing against the table unexpectedly. After he nearly toppled the chair we did what your suggesting, we moved him away from the table.

Now think about this as a child or an adult. If I treated you unequally and forcibly separated you from your family and friends while they enjoyed a meal and conversed, that would be extremely rude and inconsiderate. My child, yours and everyone else’s has the same emotions that we do and what your suggest prompts unhappiness at the table.

This being said, I would never endanger my child for any amount of small comforts such as being apart of the family for meal time. Luckily, if you know think for a minute you can see that this product is failsafe. It uses the best safety system available... physics! An unbreakable law!

Unless the child can move a greater mass beyond the outer-most edge of the Hisita's base, the chair cannot be tipped. Try this with a box or tower for that matter. It's an ingenious application of a simple law of displacement!

Try it with an open mind and you will be pleasantly surprised.
