REVIEW: Apramo Flippa Dining Booster Seat

We have been reviewing the Apramo Flippa Dining Booster Seat this week which has made a big difference to our mealtimes! We have been eating outside a lot over the last couple of months while we are enjoying the sunshine but our outdoor chairs aren’t really suitable for a toddler.

This is an excellent game for developing those all-important memory skills – all the family can benefit!
