Q: Does the Childrite Seat come with a table?

A: We used to make a table for the Childrite Seat but because of the low volume they had to be hand made out of wood and they were simply too expensive and the shipping cost was high due to size and weight. We recommend people find a handy carpenter in the family to make one or find a kid’s table that can work.  


Q: Does the Childrite Seat have buckles or straps to hold the child in?

A: We did not put a strap in the Childrite Seat as its purpose is to encourage children to lean how to use their torso and back muscles to sit independently. Like in special needs wheelchairs and other chairs the children are inclined to hang against or from the seatbelt and they do not do any work to strengthen their bodies.
