Update: Chicco 360 Degree Rotating Hook On Chair



A few weeks ago I raved about our Chicco 360 Degree Rotating Hook On Chair. The compact size is a great space-saver in our teeny tiny dinette. Since then, I’ve learned two pieces of information about this product.
Henry plays with an empty box while hanging out in his Chicco high chair.

One - I’ve been pronouncing the Chicco brand name all wrong. Apparently, it’s “KEY-ko”, not “CHEE-ko”.

Two - This sucker is a huge pain to clean.

I have been diligently wiping down the tray after every meal. I washed the fabric seat after Henry ate especially juicy foods. I even gathered all the crumbs that fell in the little space between the seat and the part of the chair that allows it to turn. After a few weeks I started seeing an occasional fruit fly around Henry’s high chair, so I wiped all the surfaces thoroughly with Lysol wipes to be sure it was spotless.

It turns out that no amount of cleaning the exterior of this chair will get it truly clean. After Henry’s spaghetti feast, I tried to scrub the tomato sauce out from between the seat and the turning mechanism. No matter how much I wiped up, more liquid kept appearing in the crevice. I wedged a butter knife under the edge of the seat and that’s when I discovered the hidden underbelly of this high chair.
Daddy takes apart the high chair so it can be cleaned.

Since this seat has both stationary and moveable components, bits of food get stuck between the two. We had to take the chair completely apart to get rid of all the muck. Nothing in the owner’s manual says anything about how to do this. Luckily, Daddy is handy with a screwdriver and was able to figure it out. Then, we put all the parts in the dishwasher for a complete cleaning and dried each piece to prevent any potential rust on the metal components.
Our high chair in pieces.

I still like the size and convenience of the Chicco rotating high chair, but disassembling it, piece-by-piece, is now a part of our weekly routine.

  1. We bought a used one recently and discovered the same thing before our baby even arrived. I took it apart but the two small curved plastic pieces. Can't remember how they go back in. I see it's been 4+ years, but any help would be appreciated.

  3. I'm sorry but I don't remember how they fit together.
