It was love at first sight. Sleek design. Green materials. Multiple functions. I'm talking about the Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair. I saw this chair at my neighbor's house and was instantly drawn to it because it isn't made of plastic! As I researched the chair, I was even more impressed.
Why I love the Tripp Trapp
This chair changes with growing baby from infancy to adult (holds up to 300 lbs. for a real big boy!) With adjustable foot rest and seat cushion, this chair ensures ergonomically correct positioning as your child grows Because this chair pulls up to your kitchen table (no table tray), it promotes socialization, family bonding and strong eye-hand coordination Made of cultivated beech, this chair is environmentally friendly when compared to plastic chairs Comes in many colors so you can match your home décor. No more high chair eye sores! Seven year warranty on wood parts A couple considerations
Cost. With a price tag north of $250, not including accessories, it's much more expensive than standard high chairs. But, this chair is a 3-in-1. It serves as a high chair, a booster chair and a child chair, not to mention that it morphs into an adult chair later on. Since this chair will be with my family indefinitely, I think of the Tripp Trapp as a piece of furniture and a long-term investment. And how sweet with this be... when Griffin is 10 years old and doesn't sit in mommy's lap much any more, I can see him sitting on his Tripp Trapp and remember those early days. No tray. One of the advantages of this chair is that it brings the baby to the table with your family rather than having her be isolated in her tower of plasticness. But this can be tricky when babies are first learning to eat and they are BEYOND messy. It's hard to enjoy her company when she's destroying your kitchen table and the floor below. To solve this temporary issue, we purchased a plastic tray that snaps onto the Tripp Tapp. While not ideal, I'll be one happy mama as I let Griffin explore and play to his heart's content on his tray rather than on our kitchen table. Soon enough, he'll be back at the table with us but this is a great interim "fix." There you have it, the Stokke Tripp Trapp. If you're in the market for a high chair, definitely check this chair out! It's good for baby, family, and environment. Pregnant?
