The simple roll up feature of the Travel Chair with its own attached bag, (where there is room for baby wipes or a bib), make it a truly portable item.

GROSS MOTOR, SENSORY, and SELF-SUPPORTED PLAY

The following information is provided by one of our independent evaluation experts, a highly qualified and authoritative source as a sneak peek from his report findings. It will help you understand how the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair contributes to Gross Motor, Sensory, and Sell-Supported Play skill development.

Professor of Pediatrics & Health Sciences, MD, MPH

"The product provides an especially significant contribution to Gross Motor, Sensory, and Individual(self)-supportive skill development. My position on this is ascertained by the following:

The product puts a child in a position of independent thinking and sensory perception dependent upon their own sense exclusively (Individual 'Self'-Supportive Skill Development. The common response of action generally includes kicking, moving of arms (Gross Motor Skills), and feedback to the brain from sensations experienced - Vision, Touch, Hearing, Smell, and Taste (Sensory Skills). These development skills are a unique group which are part of the primary interactive building blocks, yet can easily be ignored or misunderstood in object association and benefit of use."

[ More information on this is available in the "Independent Evaluator Reports" section. ]




Simple, Comfortable and Safe

Moms are all too familiar with the challenges of handling an infant or young toddler when attending to shopping chores and other tasks to be done, especially if they have to contend with the blessing of the infant having siblings.

The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair can be used with many types shopping carts and all sorts of seats to provide a secure yet comfortable experience for a child. At the same time, a Mom is then enabled to attend to multiple tasks while her child is able to sit comfortably. Best of all, the travel chair is designed to be a one-size fits all solution.

As pointed out by one of our independent product evaluators, "It is of the highest priority that a caregiver understands that when they are using a portable chair device such as this, to use wisdom. A bad and uninformed judgment call in the selection of the product could become a costly error. Using a product which is not suitable and safe for the child could cause irreparable harm. That harm becomes a shadow which will follow the child to the last day of their life, unforgiving and never ceasing."

Professor of Pediatrics & Health Sciences, MD, MPH

"The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Chair is an exceptional portable infant utility product.  It is a lightweight alternative for seating an infant in a variety of environments seating for an infant is generally unavailable."

"While portability, ease of use, functionality and price-point are important desire, safety must remain as one of the most important things you consider when doing your buying.  "In all of the years of my study I could never emphasize this fact enough." 

"It is of the highest priority that a caregiver understands that when they are using a portable chair device such as this, to use wisdom. A bad and uninformed judgment call in the selection of the product could become a costly error. Using a product which is not suitable and safe for the child could cause irreparable harm. That harm becomes a shadow which will follow the child to the last day of their life, unforgiving and never ceasing."

"The chair design is a well balanced combination of safety, sensory stimulation, and functionality well defined. The chair's design structure is such that a child is well secured and safely so, with straps that have no apparent sign of potential slippage. The padding is sufficient to provide a comfortable experience for a child while also providing the opportunity for a number of developmental skills to be well stimulated."


Professor of Behavioral Biology


"The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Chair is a product which supports the foundational importance of an infant having support that will not impede their development being anything other than absolute. The manufacturer has done well in designing a product which will function not just a for a very limited infant age/weight group, but has also paid close attention to safety."

"This product allows an infant to be a part of family dining without major inconvenience, unlike a high chair which is appears to be safer, yet may not always be the case. The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Chair allows parents to be closer to the child while eating with a greater level of control of possible activity by the infant which might be disruptive."

"With the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Chair, the infant remains secure, preventing them from standing up. if capability is there. I would say that this chair is best recommended for infants and toddlers no greater than 28-30 lbs. with next to no possible risk of injury."

Based upon that fact we put every single product we evaluate at the mercy of consumers in a hands-on evaluation where anything goes. Shall we see how the "Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair" were seen with consumers?

Example of the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Chair in the carrying pouch.

The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair proved its worth in our spontaneous, hands-on consumer evaluation. It was rather amusing to see mothers so amazed how such a simple red or blue pouch they were given, could soon after, "morph into a product of their dreams" as one of the bystanders stated while he was watching the ladies evaluate the product.

Going over our feedback forms and videotapes, it appears that the one thing that rose to the top in capturing the attention of the consumers the most was the simplicity and functionality combined.

At the public mall in Burbank, Ca, and other locations we brought all of the products for hands-on evaluation, the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair garnered the best in response level and popularity.

In our reviewing of the consumer hands-on feedback forms which the participants filled out, there was no room for doubt that the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair was one of the most innovative products we had available for the consumers to experience. The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair passed this segment of our evaluation quite smoothly.

The Featured Category Ratings for this Product Evaluation Summary are listed below.




COMFORT: Rating Level - [5]

The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair was a champion for comfort in this category.  Every baby and toddler we ran through using the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair was happy as can be and demonstrated no sign of discomfort whether in a shopping basket or on a chair.  The padding was undoubtedly in the right measure to be used to provide comfort without driving the price point up.

The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair pulls a perfect score of [5] Five Stars in this evaluation category for Comfort.


COST BENEFIT: Rating Level - [5]

Cost Benefit was a category which was not exactly easily determined. In the case of the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair, we combined our own rating scores with the responses from the consumers in our spontaneous hands-on evaluation. We then looked at the retail price point, looked at the comparison of all information put together and came up with our final decision.  The results were quite clear that the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair pulled a perfect score of score of [5] stars in the category for Cost Benefit.


DURABILITY: Rating Level - [5]

The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair did quite well in this category for Durability.  Just as with most other products we can launder, the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair endured 30 washings followed each time by a drying at various temperature levels times with sand stones to simulate wear and tear.

If a product passes OUR testing, it is almost an absolute guarantee it will be able to handle the worst demands it may be put through with consumers. Once again, we are more than sure that special extra we do in our evaluations by washing products so many times or other strenuous tests performed gives consumers a warm and fuzzy feeling that they are getting what they are paying for...especially if it has The Toy Man Seal of Approval on it.

The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair received a perfect score of [5] Five Stars in this category for Durability.



EASE OF USE: Rating Level - [5]

Ease of use is a term which is so simply demonstrated in a product evaluation. The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair proved its rating in this category was well earned. After going through the ropes with over 27 different mothers and babies or small toddlers, they all were of like feeling, the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair truly defined the term "Ease of Use". 

All of the mothers made it so very clear of how simple it was to make use of the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair in all environments it was subjected to. The Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair pulls a perfect score of [5] Stars in the category for Ease of Use.


MARKETABILITY: Rating Level - [5]

The marketability of a product is a very strong factor in its potential success and the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair demonstrated it was pulling plenty its share in MARKETABILITY. We put the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair through the same strict evaluation standards as always, if not even more so.  Child safety is of the utmost importance to us.  In combining our consumer surveys, spontaneous hands-on evaluation, going over the independent evaluators reports, and reviewing the video tapes,  it was clear to see without hesitation that the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair rose to the challenge in this category for MARKETABILITY with a perfect score of [5] Stars.


VISUAL APPEAL: Rating Level - [3]

The visual appeal category was the toughest one of all for us.  We seldom like to see any score less than [4] stars, yest no product can be perfect.  We could have selected another category score which was higher to feature rather than this but we prefer to keep it real here in our summaries.  In this instance, seeing an "average" score reminds our readers to look at the entire picture, not just one category.

From the standpoint of every woman who saw the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair as well as everyone else in the evaluation process, it was determined through various evaluation procedures we use, that the VISUAL appeal was average.  In essence, it means that the product still looks great, yet there is nothing in the category of visual appeal to pull a WOW! out of a person.  It is simple, average visual appeal, yet combined with all other category evaluation results, a knockout product.

The product is designed primarily for use by women thus the scoring had to put priority on the results from the women. The men were not ignored, it a matter of majority rule. A far greater volume of women participated and provided feedback than men by a VERY large margin. In their collective opinion, from the packaging to the product itself, the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair was average as far as women were concerned.

We awarded the Snazzy Baby Deluxe Travel Chair an average score of [3] Stars in this category for Visual Appeal.
