The OXO Tot Perch Foldable Booster Seat is a Booster type portable high chair. Like all booster type mobile baby high chairs it’s very easy to install.

OXO-Tot-Perch-booster-seat-reviewWhat makes this popular Amazon product, OXO Tot Perch Booster seat achieve almost 5 stars from mums who buys for their travelling toddler has a slick design. Just look at it! It’s like a designer baby booster chair that folds away neatly when not in use. I want one just because it looks so pretty! So posh! Does not look like a baby booster high chair at all! The price is affordable, easy to installeasy to keep clean just by wiping and a pretty design that is pleasant to the eye.

OXO-Tot-perch-portable-high-chair-reviewHowever, there are few disadvantages to this booster chair which have me choose the Benbat Yummigo booster seat over this one. The two big factors is that the OXO Perch Foldable Booster seat does not have a built-in carry strap for when I am travelling or to hook it onto my pram. Second factor, it does not have an in-built storage space like the Benbat Yummigo. For me, travelling around for 2 weeks in with a toddler, those things are important. Though, everyone has their own personal opinions so to help make your life decision on a great booster seat for your family, below are the pros and cons of this beautiful slick OXO Tot Perch Foldable Booster seat.

Note: With all types of portable high chairs, you have to supervise at all times. So this chair is no different except it fits on most chairs like most booster seats do.


OXO-Tot-easy-to-clean-seat-review✓ Easy to Clean – One of a few booster seats that is made entirely of non-porous fabric where it is made from a combination of plastic and synthetic leather so makes cleaning the seat so easy. You just wipe clean. For a deeper clean you can pull it apart to get into the hidden nooks.

 Not just a pretty face, also durable and sturdy – The OXO Tot seat does not look like a baby booster seat at all. The design is smooth and slick with nice colour choices. Very posh looking. The seat is also durable with soft cushion seat for ultra comfort and safety. Additionally, the bottom of the seat is non-slip to keep booster secure while perched on an adult chair.

OXO-Tot-Perch-folded-booster✓ Light weight and compact – The OXO Tot seat is easily folded away into a compact box when not in use. And it is made with light weight material making it easy to carry around.

Easy installation – Like all other booster seats, it is easy to install but what makes OXO Tot better than the others is the hard cover plastic back rest which does not need to be tied to the back of the chair to be held up. It can hold up by itself.

OXO-Tot-safety-straps-booster-reviewQuality safety straps – The OXO Tot safety straps are durable and can extend to much larger toddlers. Additionally, when not in use or when toddlers no longer need the straps, it can be tucked away neatly under the seat and not left hanging around loosely. Very clever!

OXO-Tot-easy-to-install-booster-review Very compatible with any chairs – like all booster seats, it is very compatible with all types of chairs. But what makes the OXO Tot even better is the non slip bottom and a hard cover back rest which allows the booster seat to be installed even without being attached by straps to a chair. Of course, this would be for much older kids that just need a boost and of course, at all times need to be supervised.


  Not suitable for child under 1 years old – In fact from the manufacturer at OXO Tot themselves, they only recommend for kids over 3 years old! Personally, the design is very similar to other booster seats, so I don’t see why you can’t use it like any other booster seats from age 1 when your toddler can sit up well. As long as, they don’t need side or back support so the toddler will need to be able to sit upright quite well.

  No internal storage – While travelling, the internal storage can be quite a bonus but the OXO Tot does not come with this feature. Though it makes it up with a soft comfortable cushioned seat.

  No in-built strap – The OXO Tot although folds flat does not come with any carry bag or in-built carry straps. So if you were travelling, you will need to either put it under a pram or put it into another bag that you are also carrying when travelling.

OXO-Tot-hidden-straps-portable-seat  Crumb Catcher – Not a huge deal as you can take it apart for cleaning but thought to mention this as some mums has raised this concern. The OXO Tot catches crumbs quite easily at the back between the cushion seat and the hard cover back due to its huge gap. However this can be easily solved by taking the seat apart and giving it a good wash given it is made of plastic.

OXO-Tot-Perch-portable-booster-seat-reviewIn summary, I think the OXO Tot Perch Foldable Booster is a fantastic booster seat for toddlers. The booster seat is just not a pretty face, it is very functional with good safety and comfort features as well. The only downfall of this seat is the lack of storage space and an in-built carry strap, which if you are travelling is quite important. Although all these factors can be overcome by taking an extra baby bag with you while travelling and you can own a OXO Tot Perch seat that looks pretty at home and when out and about.

Munchkin BRICA GoBoost Travel Seat Review

First year on the go booster

munchkin-brica-booster-seatThe Munchkin BRICA GoBoost Travel Seat is a Booster type portable high chair. It’s almost identical to my favourite and my best pick Benbat Yummigo. The only difference between the two in terms of functionality is the access to storage space, the size of the storage space and type of fabric material used. Other than that, works the same way.

This portable booster seat is a popular Amazon products achieving almost 5 stars from mums who buys for their travelling toddler. This is no surprise given the affordable price point, ease of installation, ease of cleaning, storage compartment that can be accessed while baby is seated and a built-in carry strap too. It ticks the boxes for most mums looking for a portable, compact and functional baby booster seat for travelling.

munchkin-brica-portable-seatThe price tag is just a little cheaper than the Benbat Yummigo. If you are looking for a booster type seat, more affordable than the Benbat Yummigo with similar features light weight, easy to carry and easy to install, the Munchkin BRICA GoBoost Travel Seat might be the one for you. Everyone has their own personal needs and wants so I have summarised the pros and cons below to help make your decision easier.

Note: With all types of portable high chairs, you have to supervise at all times. So this chair is no different except it fits on most chairs.


munchkin-brica-storage✓ Clever Design – Compact box-type design that is ultra portable as a travel booster seat with a strong and stable internal frame. Comes with built-in straps and Bonus storage inside the seat so double up as storage and seat.

 Bonus storage – The bonus storage can be accessed while the seat is in use (yay!) with the toddler sitting on it. However the storage space is smaller than the Benbat Yummigo.

munchkin-brica-non-slip-base✓ Increased safety – Only seen on the Munchkin BRICA GoBoost, the Xtra-Grip™ traction pads provide a no-slip grip on chairs for increased stability

Portable and Light weight – Made of light weight fabric and internal structures so keeps booster seat light weight to carry with an in-built strap for increased portability.

✓ Easy to keep clean – Made of waterproof and easy to wipe fabric throughout so keeps booster seat easy to keep clean.

 Very compatible with any chairs that can be attached to. Similar to the Benbat Yummigo, after a while I become more adventurous and start using the booster on any chairs like bench type or stools even though I can’t strap the back of the seat but if you stay close to your child, you can make it work and stay safe! Just know your child’s ability and personality if this can work for you.


  Not suitable for child under 1 years old – As a booster, they don’t come with side or back support so the toddler will need to be able to sit upright quite well. Although there is a small section of side support in the Munchkin BRICA GoBoost, it is not full side support.

munchkin-brica-carry-case  Does not fold down flat so can seem bulky. The booster seat stays the same size “as is.”

  Belt harness does not hold toddler tightly in place like the car-seat which keeps the toddler safely bolted in. It is really to create resistance so the child does not feel they can run away. This works well for me as it stopped my little toddler from walking across seats and chairs had I not strap him down lightly with the booster straps. There has been reviews by Mums that the T-straps on the Munchkin BRICA are a bit short for the bigger toddlers or when they reach age 3.

  Small storage compartment – As mentioned above, although there is a bonus storage compartment, it is not that big compared to the Yummigo Benbat. So you would really need to weigh up the two boosters as to whether an internal storage is important for you if you are to do away with another baby carry bag during the day while travelling.

Munchkin-BRICA-mobile-booster-seat  Fabric parts are not removable – Although the whole booster seat is made of fabric that is easy to wipe down and somewhat waterproof, it does not beat pure plastic that can just be wiped down and not absorb any liquid. It will still absorb liquid and this can’t be washes out except to just give it a wipe.

  Back flap does not hold up itself. Has to be strapped onto back of the chair to hold it up. Although I have used it on chairs without having the back flap strapped on like using it on a bench or stool type seat and it still worked for me. 

munchkin-brica-carry-strapsIn summary, this is a great portable baby booster seat for travelling where it ticks the more important factors or sturdiness, bonus storage, ease of installation and ease of cleaning. The features are on-par with the Benbat Yummigo and it is also more affordable. No wonder it is a popular product with good reviews in Amazon. But on a personal level, I still prefer the Yummigo Benbat for its bigger storage space as I can do away with an extra baby carry bag during the day when I am travelling. And being made of plastic in most parts of the booster seat, I can easily wipe clean with wet wipes compared to the Munchkin BRICA which is still a fabric type material but waterproof. But if you don’t mind the smaller compartment space and a cheaper price tag, the Munchkin BRICA is the way to go.
