Bugaboo Giraffe High Chair : First Look - Full Review
Coming to America Spring/Summer of 2023
Magic Beans is excited to announce the brand new Bugaboo Giraffe high chair. The Bugaboo Giraffe high chair is a first for Bugaboo, most widely known for their parent-favorite strollers like the Bugaboo Fox 3 and Bugaboo Donkey 5. The Bugaboo Giraffe high chair is brilliantly designed with a focus on compact functionality instead of the over-engineered mechanics of way too many other luxury high chairs. It’s a perfect amalgam of comfortable, functional, and easy to clean…and it’s awesome!
The Bugaboo Giraffe has a total of five stages beginning as a newborn rocker all the way to a full size dining chair (with a whopping 220 lbs weight max). While a few brands have high chair’s offering the same longevity, none of them are as effortless to use. The Bugaboo Giraffe adjusts between its five configurations with simple snap-on, snap-off components; and the light touch of a button adjusts the seat height and leg rest positions in one second. No tools, no partial disassemblies, no difficult trays only made to appease American sensibilities.
What comes with the five Bugaboo Giraffe high chair configurations?
The Bugaboo Giraffe has three high chair setups. (Stages 3, 4, 5)
Bugaboo hasn’t detailed how they’ll package the Bugaboo Giraffe and its five configurations but we expect that it will be packaged differently country to country. For the American Bugaboo Giraffe we’re guessing it will be sold in two setups, like their strollers are: one-box completes and customizable separates.
Here’s what you’ll need if you buy the 6+ month Bugaboo Giraffe high chair in America:
- Wood high chair frame and hardware
- Bio-based plastic baby set
A couple well designed expansions will get you extra two configurations designed for those delicate newborn months…
The Bugaboo Giraffe Newborn Set (0-6 months) is a portable, reclined seat that snaps onto the Bugaboo Giraffe high chair frame. This keeps your newborn close to you and away from the ground. What you’re getting with the Bugaboo Giraffe Newborn Set is really a package that keeps you off the floor, saving your neck, back, and knees a lot of trouble. For people recovering from birth, grandparents, and those with chronic pain this is a game changer. (Stage 2)
The Bugaboo Giraffe Newborn Set also snaps into the Bugaboo Giraffe Rocker (0-6 months), This beechwood frame calms the baby and buys you some time to take care of yourself. And the combination of the Bugaboo Giraffe Newborn Set and the Bugaboo Giraffe Rocker is so lightweight, you can carry it around the house as you work, cook, watch TV. (Stage 1)
The Bugaboo Giraffe Baby Set supports the smallest eaters
Most highchair seats are a “one size fits all” setup that leaves the younger children slouching to the side or “suspended” on a seat way too large for them. The Bugaboo Giraffe Baby Set removes this issue completely. Its Bio-based plastic frame locks onto the Bugaboo Giraffe’s wooden frame, narrowing the seat into a more appropriate and supportive space for babies and toddlers. Later on the Bugaboo Giraffe Baby Set pops off and into storage so your big kid can use the Bugaboo Giraffe as a normal dining chair until they leave for college (220 lb. weight max!).
Bugaboo’s commitment to environmentally friendly, sustainable materials
The Bugaboo Giraffe is a conscientious, good choice. It’s one of the very few highchairs made in Europe, and with sustainable FSC certified beechwood and Bio-based plastics.
Love note to Bugaboo: Bugaboo products have some of the longest lifespans in all of baby gear. Seeing a 10 year old Bugaboo stroller on its third family and 9th child is completely normal. Instead of flooding the world with baby gear that needs trashing and replacing after its third child, Bugaboo designs their baby products to last longer than you could ever need it to. Longer product lifespan leads to a smaller ecological footprint…simply by selling high quality.
Bugaboo Giraffe Release Dates
The Bugaboo Giraffe will be released in the U.K. this fall in 2022, with the rest of Europe following soon after. Here in America, it’s going to be a while, probably in the spring or summer of 2023.

While the Bugaboo Giraffe won’t hold your baby’s hands out of the way while you airplane in peas, it does almost everything else you need in a highchair. It’s sturdy, easy to use and clean, lasts forever, and it looks great. We can’t wait for you to see it!
