Munchkin Travel Booster Seat

Best Portable Highchair for Airplane Travel

Why people love it
  • Fantastic to travel with, especially on planes
  • Easy to use and set up
  • Parents love the extra storage face

If this chair had shoulder straps, we would move it up the list in a heartbeat. 


Quality: Wow! Considering the high quality of this travel high chair, you would think you would pay a lot more. But you won't.

The design of this chair is rather unique. It has a reinforced inner shell for safety (and storage, but we'll get to that in a moment). And there are retractable legs for additional support. That with the super durable covering makes this Made in the USA product an incredible combo. 

Safety: You get three safety straps to affix this chair to a regular-sized chair; two underneath (one in front and one in back) plus one for the back of the chair. Your baby is secured with two side straps that slot into a larger (and more comfortable) center panel. While it can only hold children up to 50 pounds, you're going to feel comfortable using this chair until that point. 

Ease of cleaning: As with most products made from plastic, foam, and a covering fabric, this is designed to be wiped down with a damp cloth. It's not going to be as easy as some travel high chairs that are completely made of plastic, but no one seems to think it's terribly difficult to keep clean. (And, we doubt that all of those reviewer's children are neat and tidy at mealtimes.) 

Features: This portable booster seat has a lot of features. It's difficult to know where to start. It's design features a storage compartment that zips open under your child's legs. Keep cleaning cloths, bottles, or snacks tucked on the inside - or whatever makes your life easier. The back also folds forward to make this one of the most compact models available. 

With a weight under 3 pounds, it will feel almost like a miracle - especially as it doubles as storage. Retractable legs double as a safety feature plus a comfort for busy, growing children. If only this portable high chair had shoulder straps... we would insist ALL traveling parents get their hands on one of these. 

Price: At $46, this is one of the most fairly-priced baby accessories you're going to find. The features make it easy to fall in love with and it's just so darn convenient for certain types of travel - including airline and long car trips (for the frequent picnicking and restaurant stops - not the drive, of course.)
