Child in Hokus Pokus highchair at dining table

The best high chair in Australia

The best high chair in Australia has been here for around 40 years but has largely gone unnoticed. It actually comes from Sweden and has been made there since 1967. Originally a wooden highchair it was then made in plastic in the early 70’s – we didn’t see the wooden high chair in Australia……

You can find it in many homes across Northern Europe and the name is widely known. Many families pass it on through the generations because they just last! Find out more here.

This piece is not just a single use item though. It is a convertible piece that changes function extremely easily just by turning it over. Used as a baby chair and table in one turn, and as a rocking chair with steering wheel in another. It’s not just for babies or your toddler. The chair and table can be used until they can no longer fit in! The same with the highchair function – if it fits, it sits!

This is also extremely stylish! We have multiple colours available. The frame is available in 2 colours – Black and Marble White. And then there are a few different coloured seats to match your decor. These can also be changed at a later date with replacement parts available. This makes them one of the most trendy high chairs available in 2019.

Size is a big deciding factor in modern furniture. Whilst this is not a folding chair, it is a small, space saving high chair for babies. See some pictures on our Facebook page.

We use them ourself and believe they really are the best in Australia. You can find them online here. We are based in Melbourne, but can ship to Sydney, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia. We also ship overseas.

Hokus Pokus High Chair - Old Products

How long did your highchair last?

The age old question – do I buy a cheap highchair and hope it lasts or spend the money on quality (but also hope it lasts)?

We have it on good authority that in some cases a Hokus Pokus highchair can last for over 35 years!  Yes, you heard that right.
Hokus Pokus HighChair - Old ProductsAnd this is not just a highchair that has been put in a cupboard and forgotten.

Used almost daily by dozens of children in a family day care environment the two chairs pictured below have certainly been around the block a few times.

I grew up with a 3 in 1 Hokus Pokus and my parents still have it today – they bought it for my older brother.  It has been passed around through friends and family and has now made its way back home for the grandkids.

Hokus Pokus Highchair - Upright old green and brownHokus Pokus Highchair - Table and Chair  This has been re-upholstered once in its life because we couldn’t get new seats at the time.  Everything else on the chair is original.

Now, i don’t know about you, but I haven’t heard of any other high chairs that deliver this sort of performance. And given the price of some chairs and the functionality they don’t provide……… it’s not really value for money.

But the Hokus Pokus Highchair IS!

Since we started selling the Hókus Pókus Stóll (highchair) in Australia we have heard from plenty of people that grew up with these as children and now want them for their kids.  We also know of people that have an old one in storage and want to bring it back to its former glory.

Highchair - rocker, table oldHokus Pokus - blue rocker, table after fixing We had a friend in Melbourne find this gem out for hard rubbish last year and thought we might like to see it.  It sure was a doozy!  BUT, it only needed a few parts and it was back to like NEW again.  Sure the frame had signs of wear and tear on it, but with new seats, handlebar and strap it was good to go.  And we loved it with the new lime seats!  Great for any little Mr or Miss to get plenty of years more use out of.

In-fact our friend that found it has recently had another baby – a boy – to go with their 3 girls.  They were in need of something that fit in with their home and style.
This Hokus Pokus was just what they were looking for.

The Hokus Pokus was originally a wooden high chair but changed to plastic in the ’70s.  It is a great 3 in 1 highchair for your baby, toddler or even 5 year old…..  Strong, lightweight, versatile, high, low, rocker, steering wheel, combination, Swedish.  So many things going for it.

So how long will you get out of that $50 highchair?

Will it last an actual lifetime?  Maybe it’s worthwhile saving up for one that will.

You hear a lot of people say, “They don’t make them like that any more” about so many things – but not this one!  It’s still made in Sweden today.

*DISCLAIMER – we do not suggest that all Hokus Pokus highchairs will last this long.  We offer a 3 year warranty and life expectancy CAN vary with use and environment.
