Frequently Asked Questions

We provide answers to the most commonly asked questions about highchairs and in particular The Enzi Chair. If you have a question which is not in this section, please feel free to contact us.

The single best feature of the Enzi Chair is its tremendous versatility. It can be used as a traditional high chair with a tray, but remove the tray and even a toddler can be seated up to the table for a meal with the family. Later on, the safety guardrail can be removed so your child can step up into the youth chair on their own and seat themselves at the table. It eventually becomes a full-size chair which we commonly refer to as the Homework Chair.  Best of all, the style of the Enzi Chair is never compromised throughout all of these stages.

Firstly, the Enzi Chair is the only adjustable chair in the market that is locally manufactured (proudly South African!). Having the chair manufactured locally has meant we’ve been able to customise it exactly for our market here in South Africa. For instance, the tray and the guard rail have been modified to ensure enough space between backrest and tray, accommodating babies of all sizes.

The chair also features the innovative swing tray and guard rail to further enhance the child’s stability and protection.  The swing functionality of the tray – clicks in place when in use and can be swung back when not in use proves to be quite a space saver.

Enzi Chair is also the tallest highchair on the market, this means it supports the pre-teen’s back so there is no over-arching as is the case with shorter chairs

Lastly, most conventional chairs claim they are adjustable – but can’t be adjusted beyond 3 yrs.  Enzi Chair is fully adjustable (seat and footrest) and outgrown at 10 – 12 yrs.  This means you don’t have to score the market again when your child starts school. Enzi Chair continues to provide much needed postural support throughout your child’s early schooling (primary) years.

The Allen key is necessary as a safety precaution. By using a key, you reduce the chance that a sibling or other person might adjust the chair in an unsafe manner or while it is in use with a child in place.

Children benefit from sitting on the Enzi chair until they are 10 – 12 years of age. The primary benefit is that the adjustable foot support grows with them until their feet can reach the floor and this typically happens around 10 to 12 years of age.

You know your child’s abilities better than anyone. The signs that your child may be ready to sit in the Enzi Chair without the baby accessories are:

  • As stated above – that you are comfortable in their ability to do it;
  • Shows interest in climbing into the chair;
  • Can climb on & off stairs – this is the same process they will engage to climb on and off the chair;
  • They are aware of height;
  • They are over 2 years of age.

We use water-based stains that are formaldehyde free (non-toxic).

Yes it does. The safety harness is part of the Cushion Set that comes with the Enzi Baby Chair as well as the Toddler Chair. We recommend use of the safety harness until the child is 2 years of age.

Your chair hardware may loosen up after assembly. This is a result of use and the natural materials maturing. Please be sure to tighten your hardware about a month after initial assembly. It is recommended that you check for looseness periodically and fasten accordingly.

Hardware may also loosen when the chair is transported so be sure to check and fasten.

You can use a damp cloth with mild soap or other cleanser that is suitable for wood furniture. Treat the wood finish as you would any other piece of wooden furniture in your home. Never submerge it in water and always dry thoroughly after cleaning and spills.

The Enzi Cushion is hand washable. It also can be washed in the delicate cycle of your washing machine.

The Enzi Chair is designed to be a solid piece of furniture in your home. It’s not the type of chair you want to transport from one place to another back and forth. However, should a need arise, its compact design can be transported in the car. It can be stored upside down without the tray in a regular car seat or in the boot - if spacious.  If you do transport the chair this way, be sure to check and tighten the hardware before use to make sure nothing became loose in transit.

However, you can disassemble the chair, pack it and set it up.  This is not something you want to do often unless the situation calls for it, for instance, in the case of a permanent move, it is wise to flat pack it instead of moving with it fully assembled.

The Enzi Chair is designed to sit up to the height of an average dining table, typically 85cms high. This allows the adult to sit on a regular chair to feed a young child and for the child to sit right up to the table with the family. The Enzi Chair is not designed to sit up to a countertop or bar-height table.

Most children start eating solid foods around 4-7 months of age. It is important that your child is seated upright to eat, not in a reclined position.

We are not the experts though in this area and it is best to consult with your pediatrician.

The Enzi Chair is designed to provide upright support for children who are able to sit up on their own to eat. A child should be able to sit on the floor unaided before they are introduced to a feeding chair – this is marked by the onset of weaning and typically happens around 6 months of age.
