I didn’t think it was possible to fall in love with a chair. Boy was I wrong. Words can not begin to explain my love for the Stokke Tripp Trapp, but of course I will try.
When I wrote my review on my Svan highchair I was asked how the two compared. To be honest, I wouldn’t even put them in the same category. Sure both grow with your child but they are so different in so many ways.
The Tripp Trapp is made of cultivated beech wood and come in a wide variety of colors to choose from. With that many colors it will match any homes color scheme, making it an excellent choice for any design conscious mom. I also love the fact that my kids can both have different color chairs to match their completely different personalities,
The modern and sleek design makes it so it not only fits into any home, but it is also extremely easy to clean. Which is a must! This has to be the easiest chair I have ever cleaned. There are no little weird cracks or holes to try and dig food out of, just wipe it down after a meal.
So how does it grow with your child?
Not only are the seat and footrest easily adjustable to your growing child- which is great for changing the height and depth to help natural posture and child development, but check out what else this awesome chair can do:
For Ages 0-6 Months:
Stokke sells a Newborn Set for the wee ones. There is a red indicator on the Newborn Set that will turn green when it is properly attached to the chair. It also has an detachable toy hanger.
Ages 6-36 Months:
They sell an attachable Baby Set, turning this modern seat into a high chair for babies. “The baby set consists of high back and rail supports. Your child can start using Tripp Trapp® with the Tripp Trapp® Baby Set™ when they are able to sit up unaided, usually around the age of 6-9 months. It can be used until your child is approximately 3 years, providing protected seating for your child. The baby set is available in the same colour range as the Tripp Trapp chair.” You can even get some beautiful, modern seat cushions to go with the Baby Set.
36 Months- Forever:
My husband and I have both sat in the chair and it is so comfortable and not once did we ever feel like we were going to break the chair. This is truly the chair that grows with your child. Even the assembling of the chairs were easy and that’s coming from someone who never puts anything together because I always get stuck and can’t figure it out. I got the chairs done in less than 10 minutes each AND they were assembled correctly! It was SUPER easy.
The only downfall for us is that we have a really tall dinner table. Luckily my 5 year old is tall enough so he can reach the table in his Tripp Trapp, but my youngest son can’t quite reach it yet, making eating a little hard with the Tripp Trapp since Stokke doesn’t make an eating tray for it. The good news is my son will keep growing making this the best chair for the future. If you have an average sized table, this chair will be perfect for your child from the start.
From the modern and sleek look to the ease of cleaning, this is a chair I would recommend to every parent.
