If you are looking for a high chair that will last from newborn until your child is is tall enough for a regular dining room chair then Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair may be the one you are looking for. It is filled with features and accessories that will transform the chair as your child grows. The Stokke Tripp Trapp chair is beautifully designed and comes in a range of colours that will suite any home decor and look right at home at your dining room table.
The Newborn Set attaches to the Tripp Trapp Chair so that your newborn can join the rest of the family at table hight during meal times. It is also great for keeping bub off the floor away from animals and toddlers. It is lined with cosy material that is easily taken off and machine washable and also includes a 5 point harness for bub’s safety. This is also the perfect set for when you first start giving your little one solids as they are on an incline rather than sitting up straight.
Once bub reaches around 6 months old it is time to take off the Newborn Set and replace it with the Baby Set. This is a plastic insert that clips onto the Tripp Trapp Chair to ensure you little one is safe and secure sitting upright at the table with you.
There are also some other accessories that you can purchase that make the chair even more adaptable. The Tripp Trapp Cushion is machine washable and comes in a variety of colours and designs. It is easy to take on and off and adds a little extra comfort to the chair. You can also purchase the Tripp Trapp Tray which clips on to the chair so that it turns into a stand alone high chair.
The Stokke Table Top is also an excellent addition for your baby or toddler. It is a large plastic tray that uses suction cups to stick onto your dining room table. It is easy to wipe clean and gives your toddler a place to eat without getting food all over the table. My favourite thing about the Table Top accessory is that it comes with four different inserts. One with farm animals and another with sea creatures. These are perfect for my 15 month old as he is just learning to name the animals and make their sounds, it is great to be able to practice with him as he eats. For the older children there are letter and number inserts.
Once your child is out of the high chair stage the Tripp Trapp Chair still has many years of usability left in it. It is designed to grow with your child, you can adapt the seat and the footrest to ensure that they are at the right hight for the table with their feet supported. There is even the option of the 5 point harness to ensure that you child is strapped in safely. My 3 year old niece loves it as well and wants to sit in it instead of her little cousin… maybe I need two!
The thing I also love about the Tripp Trapp Chair is that children are able to use the footrest to climb up into the chair with ease giving them independence. I remember when I was little sitting up at the table and bearly being able to see over the top. This definitely made it harder to eat and join in with the conversation. I often used to stack cushions or bring a step ladder to the table and sit on that just so I could be higher up. If only the Tripp Trapp Chair was invented 30 years ago!
