Kaboost Chair for Toddlers


Here is a cool gadget that makes a sturdy and safe highchair (without the tray) out of an ordinary, four legged, kitchen or dining room chair.

Little ones can sit right at the table with Grandma and Grandpa without Mommy or Daddy having to haul along the highchair.

At $39.99 it's a reasonable alternative to a high chair or booster seat.
And at 3.5 lbs. it can easily stash in the car or closet until needed.

I am heading up a community service project for CORA (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse) right now.
CORA provides a safe house in San Mateo, CA, for abused women and their of several on the Peninsula.
CORA people are life savers who need to turn on a dime to offer aid in emergencies.
Women and their children come fleeing trauma and in fear for their lives.
They need to be nurtured and kept safe while they recover and get on their feet.

Some designer friends and I are redoing the third floor apartment and this looks like an ideal solution to the problem of having to store a highchair until you need it.
We have come up with all kinds of creative and flexible interior design solutions to deal with the problems CORA volunteers and staff have with not knowing who, or how, the next person who calls is going to need to be helped.

This is another solution I will have to propose.
