Tripp Trapp® High Chair for Life
We’ve long sung the praises of the Tripp Trapp ® High Chair here at Magic Beans. A favorite with our product experts, experienced parents, and new parents alike, it is one of our most popular high chairs without a doubt. But what’s all the hype about? What could possibly make a high chair so great? Let’s do a deep dive to discover why everyone is so excited about the Tripp Trapp ®!
One of our favorite features of the Tripp Trapp ® is its long lifetime and exceptional performance at every stage of your child’s development. Unlike most high chairs that you can only use starting at 6 months old up until your child is about 3 years old, it can start being used from the newborn stage through adulthood.
Suitable from birth with the addition of the Tripp Trapp ® Newborn Set, the Tripp Trapp ® allows you to bring your baby to the dining table during family mealtimes before they are transitioning to solid foods. You no longer have to put your child in a bouncer on the floor where they will breathe in dust or be bothered by the family dog during dinner time. Keeping your little one closer means more bonding time with them whether you’re making dinner, eating, or just spending time with the family. The Tripp Trapp ® Newborn Set even comes with a nifty toy hanger so your baby can keep themselves entertained with their favorite toy during mealtime! Once your baby is sitting up on their own, just remove the lounger and clip on the Tripp Trapp ® Baby Set that comes with the high chair and it’s ready to go!
One of the main features that sets the Tripp Trapp ® apart from other high chairs is its adjustability. It was designed to be fully adjustable for your child’s height to provide much needed support for dangling feet, as well as an appropriate seat depth. While these may seem like purely comfort upgrades, these adjustments have much more important implications for your child’s health and development as you transition them to solid foods.
Three seat depth options allow your child to use the curved backrest at any age, which supports proper spinal development as they grow. The five footrest heights provide continual support for dangling legs, preventing loss of circulation and decreasing restlessness. In turn your little one is able to stop fidgeting to try to get comfortable and focus on eating. Through comfort and ergonomics, the Tripp Trapp ® helps your child develop safe and healthy eating habits from an early age.
Although there is a removable dishwasher safe Stokke ® Tray, it is sold separately from the high chair because the chair was designed and intended for use pushed up to the table. Having your baby join you at the dinner table makes it easier for you to interact with them, keeping them focused on what they’re doing and keeping them from feeling isolated from the family meal. Observing the family eat helps the baby learn table etiquette and how to interact with food, encouraging good eating habits and preventing pickiness. However, when sitting at the table is not an option the high chair tray offers a secure surface for meals. Stokke ® has partnered with EZPZ™ to create the EZPZ™ Placemat for Stokke ® Tray, a suction mat specifically for the Stokke ® Tray.
From the time that your child stops using a high chair, they still have quite a lot of growing before they can sit comfortably in an adult chair. Their legs will still dangle and cut off circulation until much later in their childhood and therefore they will still benefit from the Tripp Trapp’s adjustable footrest.
Many high chairs are intended for short term use and will end up either being donated or disposed of on the curbside within just a few short years, but the Tripp Trapp ® is a high quality wooden high chair that will last a lifetime. After its time as a high chair is up, you can use it in the children’s playroom or at a desk when they do their homework.
Families have found this feature particularly helpful during the pandemic because many children are now learning from home and are spending hours at a time sitting at the table for lessons on Zoom. Since kids are spending more and more time sitting at home, it’s important to make sure that they are sitting ergonomically. The chair holds up to 300 pounds, so feel free to use it as long as you want, even as an adult!
There are hundreds of possible color combinations you can make with a Tripp Trapp ®, so you will be able to customize yours to match your dining room decor. The high chair comes in natural beech wood or painted colors as well as oakwashed colors that give you a more textured look. Tripp Trapp ® Cushions are also available (but not necessary) in different prints and colors for added comfort and style.
