40+ year old babychair



"Daddy says I look like I'm up to no good in this shot, but noo.... I'm innocent as usual"

Here's a photo of Elyssa sitting on a 40+ year old bamboo chair. And who has used this chair before? None other than her own daddy when he was a baby. If only there's a photo of her daddy sitting on the same chair.
.
Brought the chair from MIL's place last night. According to MIL, she bought the chair for hubby's eldest brother last time, and since then her 4 kids and 4 grandkids (plus kids she used to babysit and other kids in the extended family) have used the chair. And while it's not being used a chair, it can be turned around and used as a side-table. Wow, what a useful and long-lasting piece of furniture! It still looks good too.

I've a similar old babychair at my mum's house that was used by me 30 over yrs ago. It's now still in good condition. My girl used to sit on it when she was younger.

Really? Guess these chairs are made to last. My MIL said she tried to find another similiar one a few years back but the quality was not as good.

I was in this kind of chair before. Too bad can't locate it. Something which money cannot buy.
