This thing is so worth it. The seats slide easily under the table, helping to minimize the space occupied by the set. I put my 11 month old in one seat and I flip the other one on its side so that it's a short, backless stool for me to sit in while I feed her at the table. The seats each have a shallow end and a deeper end, so you can adjust for the kids as they get bigger. Also, you can flip the whole table on its edge and make a desk with an area to display pictures, etc. for when baby gets older. This is just *really* smart design. I can see how it's going to be useful for years to come, and I'm so happy that there's no screws/bolts/assembly required, and it's not tacky looking at all. The sleek, modern design is great in our house.
