Do any of you have a Babee Tenda feeding table?

Baby Bargains has a pretty low opinion of Babee Tenda products, and the company seems shady to me. They don't distribute products in stores, just through "safety seminars". I don't like the sales tactic.

I got roped into one of those "saftey seminars" during my pregnancy. The guy totally turned me off to them, even though they might be useful. He went on and on and on and on and on about how you could put your kid in the table and just walk away. And this one time when his kid was 6 weeks the sitter got sick, so she just lived in the table all weekend. And somehow I was supposed to be impressed?

I guess take my opinion of the table with a grain of salt, as I came for the fablous gifts (what a joke) and was trapped with Mr. "Dougie Houser had a feeding table if you buy one you're kid will be a dr. too" for 2 hrs.

I prefer the look and the idea behind the Trip Trapp. Completely different from what you're looking for, but take a look and consider it. A lot of women here use it.

We got roped in when we had our 1st baby in 1995. Iirc, the seat was wipe-down vinyl but it had fabric (cotton?) piping as trim and that got really gray and filthy looking. It also ended up costing hundreds of dollars and was sort of bulky and awkward to use. Run, don't walk, away!

a different view, if you're interested...

We have the table. WE LOVE IT!!!!! ya, it's a little bigger than your typical high chair. and it is pricey. but we looked at it as an investment. we never would even consider putting baby in it and walking away. but we have used it with 2 kids now. now that they are both out of that stage we used it for a while as their "station" in the kitchen (put snacks out for them that were readily available and they thought is was fun to eat dinner there). now it is used as their craft/activity table. so for the price, we have used it on a continuous basis for 4 1/2 years and still using it. and will continue to use it as our feeding/craft/snack table until we are done having kids and they are all too big to sit at it.

Actually, we have one and love it. It's incedibly stable and portable around the house. My six month old is content to sit in it and play with toys, look out the window, eat her food, etc... And I like that it can be used for more than just a feeding table as she gets older.

My mom had one that she used for all eight of her kids, and some of the grandkids. It lasted for more than 20 years in good shape. I checked it out because of that.

But thanks for all of your opinions!

IMO very shady sales tactics. They make you feel guilty and a bad parent if you don't spend $$$ on the table or the crib.

You can find them on e-bay if your really interested, though. BTW we don't have either.
