I showed a picture of my grand daughter – and the treasure chest that we built – well for her birthday she got a new baby (doll) called baby alive – man – its eats and poops….what else will they think of for these kids. I just call that plain messy…LOL. Anyhow – needed for the baby was a few items that she explained were very necessary for a baby – one of them being a high chair. So its grandpa’s job to build the high chair… (At least she did not ask for a potty). That would have been plain embarrassing. I saw a picture of a high chair but no measurement – so here is my attempt at a doll high chair….simple things for simple minds….
mine – not my grand daughter – at 4 she is like trying to keep up with the butt end of Hailey’s comet.. the chair is 27” tall and has a seat of 9” x 9.25” and width is about 11 inches.

this is WONDERFUL and far from Simple!! holey-moley.

The doll doesn’t leave much to the imagination, does it!!!

Magnificent chair and a treasure for many little ones to come. I can hear it now “Yes, my great-great-great-grandfather built this”.

Great chair! I love this sort of thing. I never got a chance to do this stuff for my daughter. My wife kept buying toys while I was in the half built stage. Very nice.

Nice high chair. I’m hoping to have one more grandchild before I go. All I gotta do is convince my daughter and her fiance’. jockmike

Misty – I wish I could tell you. I saw a full sized version of this and I just made it a lot smaller. I stated the size of the over all project, but as I no longer have the high chair (its about 200 miles from me) I can not even give you more measurements. One thing that I did have to do over, my grand daughter knocked over the high chair, she said the baby doll did it, and broke the tray. I rebuilt the tray but made it out of Baltic birch, which should not break.

Very cool chair, I like it. I will have to make a list of things to build and this may end up on that list.

WOW, Great project, she will treasure it for years and years.
