God(dess) Ben shows us the Stokke Tripp Trapp.

First Time In A High Chair!


A high chair is, in essence, a baby’s throne.
A place to issue orders from (More! No! Mmmm! Yuk! etc) and where punishments are dished out…
“your punishment, mummy, is to pick up my spoon every 10 seconds”.

So, really, it is only right that our little princes and princesses are given a suitable chair from which to reign.
The Tripp Trapp chair from Stokke fits the bill perfectly – the simple but classy design requires no folding (unlike some chairs that you need an engineering degree to figure out). It also comes in a number of different finishes so you can pick the one that best matches your dining furniture (or is that just me?)

(Note from Laura – when Stokke asked Ben to choose a colourway, he ever-so-politely said that Mrs Ben didn’t even need to look at the site to say she would really love a Tripp Trapp in cherry, pleasethankyou…)

What I particularly like about this design, and what is so different to the usual plastic cushioned monsters, is that as your child grows you can adjust both the seat and foot rest to grow with them – all the way from small baby to adult.
This gives great flexibility, and a much longer life than a normal high chair. It will also be perfect for that awkward period when a high chair is too small, but dining chairs aren’t high enough.
There’s a newborn set available for when your child is too young to sit unaided in the chair, and of course the cushions to choose… also a harness to stop them having ‘an adventure’.

I have to be honest – at first I was a little apprehensive about the lack of a tray on the chair.
But what it actually means is that you pull the chair right up to your dining table, and your baby is simply joins you for the meal.
Which is about as good as it gets (though we did very quickly buy something to put on the dining table to make cleaning up afterwards easier… and wished we seen the Table Top sooner!).

The Stokke TrippTrapp comes in a fabulous array of twelve colours, and tendless customising options – here, go play… Customise Your Stokke Tripp Trapp.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
