Hugaboo Baby Floor Seat Review (Hugaboo)

Hugaboo Baby Floor Seat
What It Is

When you need to put down your baby, put her in the Hugaboo Floor Seat. This is more than just a soft place for baby to sit. Designed by a mom, this comfy seat gives baby 360 degrees of support, helping to stabilize the baby's back while she learns to sit up. It has an attached seat bottom to prevent the baby from sliding onto the floor. While baby is sitting in the Hugaboo, provide some floortime fun by attaching some of baby's favorite toys, sold separately, to the two included toy loops. 

The Hugaboo is available in a variety of colors and patterns, such as the yellow and blue one shown in our video review, and each is sold separately.

Why Is It Useful?

The Hugaboo is really one of the softest baby seats that we've seen and that coupled with its 360-degree support is definitely one of the main factors in why parents might choose to use the Hugaboo over other similar seats. It's easy to move the Hugaboo from room to room so that baby always has a comfortable place to sit and play. The toy attachment loops allow baby to play and work on sensory and motor skills, while also getting accustomed to sitting up. And because it can be used with babies up to 11 months, you might get more use out of it than you would with another type of baby floor seat.

There are a lot of seats out there aimed at helping baby learn to sit up. They all have their benefits, but really it comes down to what the parent feels most comfortable with putting their baby in.

Who It’s For

The Hugaboo Floor Seat is for babies from ages 3 months–11 months. A child must be able to support his or her own head before being placed in the Hugaboo. Adult supervision is required when a baby is sitting in the Hugaboo.

What To Be Aware Of

It's recommended that you spot clean the fabric cover of the Hugaboo, but it can be machine washed if you remove it from the Hugaboo. 

Only use the Hugaboo on the floor.

TTPM was not able to test out the Hugaboo with a real baby, so our review is based on prior experience with other baby floor seats. We did think that the snaps on the bottom were a little tricky to snap together after putting a baby in and before taking a baby out of the Hugaboo, so just be careful when doing that step.
