How we test

There is no Australian and New Zealand standard for portable seats, so we base our testing on some relevant parts of the AS/NZS 2195:1999 standard for high chairs, with a few other tests specific to portable seats.

Major failures include risk of a fall due to insufficient side and rear barriers, choking hazards from easily removed small pieces, insecure attachment to a chair or table and a harness that allows a child to stand up. Minor failures include less serious examples of major failure conditions, plus limb/finger entrapment hazards.

We also check the stability of the portable seat. If it fits to a table or chair, we check how securely it attaches and that it doesn’t move too much when pushed forwards or sideways. And if it can be used as a floor-seat, we check it doesn’t tip over.

We won’t recommend a portable seat if it has a major safety failure.
