Kitchen booster seat

So it's time for ds to move from the high chair to a booster seat. I really don't want a plastic booster seat. I would love a wooden one but all the ones I have found have zero reviews. I went through so many boosters with dd. I just want one good one. Suggestions? Experience?

My kids have never used a booster seat.
I have a friend who had a wooden toy company, I could give you their contact info and you could see about having them make you one?

Have you seen the tall wooden youth chairs from IKEA?  They're taller than a regular chair, so they'd work instead of putting a booster on top of a regular chair...

i just took the tray off my high chair and slid the chair up to the table. it worked till my DD was ready to sit in a really chair or at least kneel in one. i dont know how yours work but that might be an option instead of buying a booster seat.

We went straight froma high hair to a regular chair. We actually switched when we had trouble keeping dd sitting in her high chair to eat - she preferred to stand. We let her stand on a normal chair. As she got taller, she knelt. Now she's sitting. What are the return policies like on the wooden booster seats? If its an easy return, I'd be tempted to buy, and really check out the construction and quality once I got it home.

I have only seen them online so I would have to check the website.

I use a plastic one (my kids go straight to that, no high chair). If you are worried about it breaking, it is very solid and has been through three kiddos and will make it through a fourth easily. I have never seen a wooden one.

After seeing the movie bagless we have been really trying to stop using plastic.
