Discussion on the product/service

Can you describe your product/service to us?
Froc is a wooden high chair for toddlers and kids. It’s the most adjustable wooden high chair in the market. It’s designed for 6-month old toddlers, 10 year-old kids and everyone in between.

How did you get to an idea to start with this?
I researched the market and saw that most high chairs are based on 40 years old design and are impractical…That’s why we built a high chair which is more practical, adjustable and better suited for modern style of living.

What are your plans for the future?
Make the best high chair and the best selling high chair!
