Stokke Tripp Trapp Review

Tripp Trapp from baby to adult

Quick overview

The Tripp Trapp® is designed to bring your baby into family life, by allowing them to join the dinner table from as early as birth.

It is highly flexible, offering adjustable depth and height through its seat base and footplates. Your child can sit comfortably in an ergonomic seating position up until approximately 36 months.

Bear in mind that it is necessary to use the Tripp Trapp® with the baby set and cushion accessories to provide the desired comfort for your baby (which are extra purchases). It is available in a wide variety of bright coloured woods, and offers a slick Scandinavian design, by Peter Opsvik.

Tripp Trapp First Impressions

This is an investment product- customers could see that this would be worth the extra cost due to the adjustment settings, and the hardwearing wooden material.

Parents often felt happy that they would be able to reuse their chair for future children, and that their baby would get a lot of use from it as they grow. The European beech wood provides a solid base, which can hold a hefty weight of up to 140 kg (that includes some rather heavy adults!)

What people like about about the Stokke Tripp Trapp

Parents love how this product enables their child to be a part of the family at dinner time. Children often don’t like highchairs, but this simple and stylish design means that they feel like they are in their own “grown-up” chair.

As your baby grows, they will be able to safely climb up onto the chair independently, helping with your child’s development both physically and mentally. Children can continue using it, with parents reminiscing that their children often completed other activities such as reading and drawing when using the chair- up until around the age of seven!

You can also rest assured when it comes to safety, as the coloured options use water-based, non-toxic paint. Additionally, it’s free from bisphenol, phthalates, and any other harmful products.

What to watch out for

Although most customers found it hard to fault the product, it is obviously on the higher-end scale of baby products. Many people found that it was overpriced, especially considering that you need to buy additional accessories for it to function as advertised.

A few customers found that the fittings on their product didn’t match up quite well enough, resulting in a wobble, and sometimes the chair can chip quite easily.

Hints and Tips

It is necessary to purchase additional accessories for the product to be fully workable. It is recommended to buy the Tripp Trapp® Baby Set, which includes the backrest, rail, and Tripp Trapp® Extended Glider.

Browse around for other accessories, such as cushions, harness, and tray. This way you can get the most out of the product, but just be aware that the cost will climb up! Make sure to check you are happy with the product on arrival and return it for an exchange if needed – there’s no point spending so much money to be dissatisfied when any of these issues could be remedied by replacing a faulty product.

Final verdict

Despite this being a very expensive product, the Tripp Trapp® is a chair for life, with many parents giving it a perfect full five stars. If you are dissatisfied with plastic highchairs, there is a lot to gain with this wooden option. It not only allows your baby to be part of the family table immediately but as the child grows, it encourages the independent use of the chair.

If you think you and your child would enjoy these benefits, close your eyes and don’t think about the cost – for years to come, it will be a much-loved part of your household. Moreover, it is available with a huge 7-year warranty for the wooden components, proving it to truly be for life, as it promises.
