So you need a high-chair...

Carolyn has a post about messy high chairs over on her blog. Here are a few thoughts on the matter.

Have you tried looking in the Dr. Seuss collection to see if the Calla chair is for sale? That seems to me to be the most likely place to find it.

On a more serious note, IKEA has some chairs that look a little like the first one you have listed, although I don't think they are high chairs. But even if you don't want to go for the egg carton look or the Seuss Baby look, you could check out IKEA's ugly, yet functional ANTILOP chair for just 19 dollars and you can even throw in an easily-washable plastic cushion that doubles as a flotation device for just 5 dollars more. You will note, though that it appears that a tray is an extra charge of 6 bucks. This brings your total up to 30. A little pricey, but still somewhat competitive with the 495 dollar urinal.

The last option is to phone up American Idol and see if you can strike a bargain for one of their stools. Otherwise you can go straight to the manufacturer and buy it. They call it the Al Bombo stool... somehow that name just seems appropriate. You will have to drive to Chicago to pick it up, but I'm sure there is
a county or two on the way that you've never been to. Call it a

Happy hunting!

Looks like the Antilop high chair with matching tray fits my needs for no frills and easy clean up. And you can't beat the price!

Obviously there's no way in heck I can afford the fancy high chairs I love, but they still look way cool!

I just have awesome taste. :-)
