Totseat Ensure Edinburgh’s Sitting Comfortably

Totseat Ltd, creators of the multi-award winning washable squashable highchair is delighted to announce it will be sponsoring the Edinburgh International Book Festival for the third year running

This year, the beloved family brand is supporting the Children’s Programme with a new event called ‘Are you sitting comfortably’. 

Totseat’s event, which opens the festival every morning, provides a fantastic opportunity for families to join in with reading and rhymes from internationally acclaimed authors such as Vivien French, author of Oliver’s Fruit Salad.

With the business’s roots firmly in Edinburgh and a team that are passionate about the importance of reading from a young age, supporting this festival again was an easy decision for the brand.

The Edinburgh International Book Festival 2014 is taking place from the 9th – 25th August at Charlotte Square Gardens, in the heart of Edinburgh. The globally recognised event offers something for every age and every interest, bringing readers and writers together for inspiration, entertainment and discussion. Following customer feedback, the Totseat team have learnt that a lot of parents also love using their Totseat when reading with their children.

This is an exciting development and Totseat is looking forward to embracing this new function throughout the event. 

Rachel Jones, Founder of Totseat Ltd said: “The Totseat Are you sitting comfortable events are about opening children’s eyes and ears to the magic of a book – whether through stories, songs or just a few precious moments shared with family and friends. While in the main, the Totseat chair harness is used by families looking for an easier lunch, or mealtime, lots of people do use it for reading time – so there’ll certainly be some on offer in the Book Festival Tent!”

All the events are free although ticketed – so book yours now at
