With 2 very young children, Holiday gatherings can be tricky, to say the least. Most of our family and friends don't have extra highchairs laying around, and let's face it: Highchairs don't fit very well into most vehicle trunks, especially when you'd need 2 of them! So trying to get my kids to sit nicely at the table while eating can be a job in itself. They always want to run around and share in the festivities, and this sometimes means that chocolate, sweet potatoes, or even cranberry sauce end up smeared where they shouldn't be....That means a HUGE case of Mommy Guilt, because I always feel awful if my littles make a mess in someone else's home.
Luckily, this year we won't have to worry. I have discovered the ultimate portable high chair solution, and I can fit it into my purse. Oh, did I mention it's washable, too?
So what is this great product that will take the insanity out of Holiday gatherings with little ones? The Svan Totseat! If you're familiar with Svan, you know that they are world renowned for their innovative, sleek and modern European designs. (I just love the look of their Signet Complete High Chair....Drools....)
The Totseat is the original portable, washable, and “squashable” seat. Made of fabric, The Totseat is designed to safely attach to all types of chairs. Adult chairs can be quickly transformed into the perfect seat for a baby or toddler.
Available in 6 colors with a variety of patterns, The Totseat eliminates the need to hunt down a highchair when traveling. The Totseat is ready to go in its own carry pouch which fits neatly into your diaper bag, purse or other carry bag.
Here are some of the features that make the Svan Totseat so unique:
- 3 adjustable height settings to fit almost every chair
- 2 unique options to secure to chair
- Fastens securely with quick clip (no knots)
- Lightweight and portable seat (storage bag included)
- Fits children 8-30 months
- 3-point adjustable safety harness
- Machine washable
- Cummerbund included for chairs with open backs

Our Review of the Svan Totseat :
We received the Svan Totseat in the cheerful, beautifully gender neutral Choc Chips print. It came packaged in a durable case, although you won't need to hang onto it...The Totseat comes with its own matching carrying pouch!
The carrying pouch is rather small, and the Totseat fits perfectly inside. This makes it ultra-portable, so secure seating is always on hand whether it be at a restaurant or at a friend or relative's home.
This product is super-versatile as well. Due to it's adjustable height settings, it is designed to fit on virtually any adult-sized chair. (Yes, even outdoor furniture!) It only takes a minute or so to attach the Totseat to a char, which definitely comes in handy while dealing with hungry, impatient little ones.
Here is my soon-to-be 3 year old, Xander, in the Totseat. If he looks distressed, it's because he didn't want to have to wait through pictures before eating his snacks. As a blogger's child, he knows that when the camera comes out, it's going to be a few minutes before he can do what he wants. This was the happiest photo I was able to get, believe it or not!
(As stated before, the Totseat is recommended for children ages 8-30 months. My youngest child, Xander, is actually almost 3 years old, so he is above the recommended age by just a couple of months. However, since his father and I are not tall people, he is rather small for his age, and the Totseat works fine for him.)
Despite my son's look of annoyance and impatience, I can assure you that the Svan Totseat has come in very handy. Once my kiddo has food in front of him, he is actually quite happy being in the Totseat. It appears to be very comfortable for him, and it doesn't really restrict movement while remaining secure. Xander has not been able to wiggle out, and doesn't really complain about being "strapped in".
Of course as a Mom, what I love the most is the fact that the Totseat is very compact, and won't take up much room in a purse or diaper bag. You can keep it on hand at all times, and always have a secure seating option at the ready. With the Holidays coming up, you'd better believe we'll be relying on the Totseat while visiting family and friends!
I would definitely recommend picking up this ingenious product before hitting the road for Holiday gatherings!
