Ikea Antilop Review Visuals
Okay, it’s pretty boring looking compared to other highchairs on the market. It’s plain white with grey metal legs but you can buy a pretty snazzy red and blue striped insert for smaller babies. But I must admit, I do find the simplicity of the design rather refreshing though, you hardly notice it sitting in your kitchen/living room/dining room. I like how it’s not covered in cushioning that can be a pain in the bum to clean too.
The Antilop seat itself is quite small compared to other highchairs on the market, but you’ll have no trouble fitting even your 3 year old in there.

Ikea Antilop Review
The Antilop is a small highchair but it does it’s job well. It’s so easy to clean compared to other highchairs on the market. There’s no fabric, no nooks and crannies to get food stuck in. The best part about cleaning the Antilop is that you can just shove this highchair in the shower and hose it down if you want. No fussing. This is the best feature for me, it’s just so easy to clean.
You will need the insert if you have a smaller baby in this highchair, the fact there’s no padding on the high back makes it easy for your small baby to bobble their little head around and smack it off the back a lot. Mine did anyway. The insert is an extra £6 or $6 and is basically an inflatable cushion with a zip on cover. The insert is easy to clean too as the cover comes off and can go in the wash, and while you’re waiting for it to dry, you can just use the inflatable cushion itself as it’s made of comfortable wipe-down plastic.
The actual shape of the seat is great too, as it requires your child to sit up straight when they eat rather than slouch, but they’re still comfy. Slouching when eating was something that really bugged me in bigger highchairs.
Unfortunately, the Antilop does not fold down. If you want to store it, you have to remove the legs and pack them and the seat away somewhere. It’s easier to keep it up all the time than it is to remove and re-attach 4 legs 6 times a day. The Antilop is small and inoffensive though, it doesn’t take up much room at all.
The Antilop ticks a lot of boxes for a lot of parents. It’s small, cheap, safe and fully functional. The main attraction of this highchair is it’s price though, it’s fantastic.
