Emma and a highchair

My chair project was about my old highchair and the tragedy that happened to tiny me in year 1982. When doing the research I found out that my higchair was the Finnish classic made from birch by an old Finnish company called Niemen Tehtaat. I also looked for various other highchairs in the Museum of Childhood and from internet. Most revarding part of my research was when my Finnish friend Elli visited and we got into a conversation about this particular highchair. She and her sister had the same one and even in same green colour. We both remembered excatly how the chair smelled and how its surface felt like. We also remembered dry bits of baby food stuck on it.
