Christa Reviews the Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair

posted in: Motherhood, Reviews | 2

I live in a tiny house – our eat-in kitchen is our dining room and it’s none too big. I think living in NYC during my early adulthood programmed my brain to like a cozy house. I mean, compared to a Brooklyn galley kitchen we are living large in ours… There is one downside to having a tiny house, however, and that is the fact that kids and babies will sometimes need furniture specific to their development levels. Like cribs, bouncy seats, and yes, high chairs.

Even way back when I was pregnant with my first the thought of putting some monstrous high chair in my kitchen was nightmarish.

According to Wikipedia, this high chair was was developed by the Norwegian furniture designer Peter Opsvik in 1972 after he couldn’t find a chair that would let his son, Tor, eat with the rest of the family.

What he created was adjustable and stable enough for little ones to climb onto themselves.



We have two:

The Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair is not cheap at $249.99 – I’ll grant you that. But when you consider that you can use it through infancy, into the toddler days, into the teen years (when it makes a great desk chair), and then into adulthood, it starts to look like a MUCH better buy. They’re great for small spaces, too. Plus, for the mamas who care about aesthetics, I have to say I think it is much nicer looking than the more common plastic and metal high chairs.

At our house? We think the Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair is worth every penny – even when you need two.

    My son is very happy using this seat. While my husband is quite confused how to use this chair at first. But, I really like and eventually he also loves this seat to help my son playing together at the dinner table. My child can follow along at dinner with this chair. He is very pleased with this chair. Also during the day time.
