Investing in a good high chair is essential for parents entering into the world of weaning and toddler meals.
The Stokke Tripp Trapp was the first of what’s now an ever-increasing clan of convertible wooden high chairs.
This highchair is not only an iconic and clever piece of furniture but one that promises to stand the test of time and grow with a family.
The design has remained virtually unchanged since its launch in 1972. It first came to the market after Norwegian designer Peter Opsvik, struggled to find a chair that would allow his two-year-old son to sit at the family table after outgrowing his highchair.
The chair is assembled and adjusted using an Allen key. Some nuts need to be left very loose until the end, to allow you to slide the seat and footplates in.
BOUNCE SAYS: It was so easy to put together. I didn’t event have to ready the instructions. Good quality furniture always fits together perfectly during construction and this was no exception.
The natural place for your newborn, the Newborn Set is designed to give your baby the interaction they love from birth. Cozy, comfortable and ergonomic, it lifts your newborn up your height at the table. This enables eye contact and a great opportunity to spend quality time together with whole family.
What’s special about a chair that grows with you? It stays with you. Made from high quality European beech wood, the iconic Tripp Trapp® chair is strong, stylish and durable. Fully adjustable, it provides a comfortable seat that can be used from the teen years well into adulthood. Did you know that it holds up to 110 kilos?
BOUNCE SAYS: We prefer our house to not like a play group so this beautiful piece of furniture fits right in with our adult style. Whats more it will last until our son is older and it can grow with him. We love the fact he has his own chair, its something that his old high chair couldn’t do and really is an investment.
Being made from solid wood, the chair is heavy and sturdy – it’s designed to hold the weight of an adult.
Having the chair flush with the table does mean the child can push themselves away from it, but the extended glider attachment for the feet is designed to stop the chair from tipping backwards when this happens.
BOUNCE SAYS: We are at the 8 month stage so our son has the baby set with a lovely lucky cushion set. Its easy to clean and the large tray fits right on top.
We love this high chair. It has everything you could possibly want or need in terms of a high chair, plus its a good looking piece of furniture. In terms of investment we have known these to stay in families for years, so its definitely a good investment. It comes in a range of colours to suit your style as do the accessories, we give the Tripp Trapp a big Bounce thumbs up!
