lol i wondered what you meant by bee chair so googled it and have to say it did give me a giggle with the big bee on it, i assume its the same company who makes my sons standing frame as he has a giant monkey on the side of it! we're waiting on delivery of a squiggles http://www.leckey.com/template.asp?parent=96&pid=250 jacob has his fitting last week and its fantastic so if you get a choice i highly recommend it!
hope they manage to find you something you are happy with

hi ella,my son Scott has got a bee chair and they're really not that scary,if i can work it anyone can!
before that he just had a special chair,very simple upright or tilted,but with the extra support.hopefully you can find one that doesn't scare you!x

hi my sons first chair was a Jenx Bee chair i have to admit it that was a bit of a wake up call for me because it was such a solid piece of equipment! without it my son would not have had the support he needed and i doubt he would have learned to sit. he can now sit unaided, bearing in mind he had a sleep system to change his position in the night thats a mighty big achievement! early intervention is a good thing it will give your child the best chance to reach their full potential good luck with it. as the child grows there will be plenty of opportunity to choose nicer looking chairs.
I never thought it would happen to me.

We used to have a giraffe chair and personally I thought they were great, very kid friendly and not just boring bits of metal and wood everywhere.
Still, no matter what it looks like, if any disability equipment works, surely its worth a try!
