Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair & Baby Set, Review and Giveaway!!!

 

Tripp Trapp®

I am so excited to tell you about this review and giveaway.  When I connected with Stokke a few months ago, and they suggested sending me 2 of their Tripp Trapp High Chairs to review, I was stoked.  We choose rich cherry for both chairs, but they are available in several stains and many bright colors.  When they were delivered we removed the pieces from the boxes and my husband easily assembled both chairs in very little time.  We were very impressed with the quality and beautiful finish on the wood.  The chairs are easy to adjust and when the little guys saw them they were so excited to give them a try.

Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair

I took a lot of time with this review, just about 2 months because it is hard to evaluate a product in a week or even 2.  I wanted to really give these chairs a thorough review and I am so glad that I took the time because I have so much insight on these chairs now that I would never have gathered from just spending a couple of weeks on the review.  We were sent the Baby Set which is for use with children 6-36 months.  It is so easy to attach and detach from the chair, no tools needed, and so even when your child outgrows it, it is a compact 2 pieces that you can keep in a closet and if you have company or friends who come over that have a younger child, you can just get it and put it on the chair in seconds.  It is easy to clean by just wiping it down and as an added bonus it is dishwasher safe.  There is also a harness strap system that is on the chair but it can be removed if you feel your child no longer needs it.  When it is removed the chair looks like a great piece of high-end furniture and it will not need to be put away when you child is ready to move on from a high chair because this chair will keep growing with your child, right up to adulthood and then be ready for the next generation.

One of the first things I noticed was that prior to the Stokke Tripp Trapp, my kids were using those Space Saver High Chairs, that sit on a regular chair (not the little booster but the full size with the big tray).  Anyway, we have a large eat in kitchen but those two high chairs were always in the way, I mean with the large tray they did not fit under the table and so the two of them were often put between the center island and the kitchen table when the kids were eating and after the would get pushed against one of the walls but they stood out like sore thumbs, especially having 2.  Since we have a large family and could not sacrifice two of our chairs from the table, to put the high chairs on we put them on our large matching counter stool height chairs. This made them as high as a high chair so they were even more awkward and so many times I just wanted to push those chairs right out the sliding doors onto the deck, to get them out-of-the-way.  After bringing the Tripp Trapp chairs in the kitchen we removed with relish those clumsy, awkward, large high chairs.  We were thrilled to now have 2 of 3 island counter chairs back and for the first day or so the kitchen appeared 5 times larger than usual.  There was so much empty space now between the island and the table that it kept amazing me every time I went in the kitchen.

 

The Tripp Trapps are able to slide right under the table and they are sleek even with the baby set attached.  In time we removed the baby set, because Luke liked to be able to get on and off the chair by himself.  He did great and they were so happy to have a place at the table like the big kids.  The high chairs had never let them get very close to the table no matter how close we pulled them, with the large tray in the way.  We found we did not use the harness straps and my husband easily removed them and the chairs looked great.  Since these chairs can accommodate adults up to 300 lbs they are able to be used by everyone.  In fact my 6 foot 4 inch cousin came to visit over the holidays and he immediately pulled out the Stokke Tripp Trapp and sat for about an hour talking with us around the table and then when we told him he was sitting in a “high chair” he laughed, and told us how much he really like them and how comfortable they were.  I find myself reaching for one all the time.  They are easy to move around and their height is perfect for so many tasks, like when I was decorating my son’s birthday cake.  they also make a great step stool for adults and kids and I can slide them right in front of the sink and they are the perfect height for my kids to reach everything and wash their hands.  Since having these chairs my kids do a lot of activities and crafts on the kitchen table.

I love the finish on these chairs and all I do is just wipe them down with the activated water in my activeion spray bottle and a towel and they clean up beautifully.  I know some people feel that these chairs are too expensive for a high chair, but they are so much more than a high chair.  When you consider that fact that some conventional high chairs can cost just as much and have to be retired when you child grows out of them and even if you do save them for your grandchildren, chances are they will be obsolete and out of style by that time.  With the Tripp Trapp you are buying a chair for a lifetime and then some.  With their beautiful styling they will look great for generation after generation and the quality ensures they will handle all the use you can dish out.  If you do the math and think of  all the years that you can and will use this chair, it makes it the best value for your money in the long run.

So do I have anything bad to say or anything I don’t like?  Honestly, no I don’t, I wish someone would have clued me in on these chairs long ago.  I am so happy with them, and can’t think of a thing I would change.  If you think you would miss a tray they have an available table top transparent tray with interchangeable templates that grow with your child.  Cushions are also available, but my opinion is these chairs are comfortable as is and are so easy to clean, that I really don’t think they are necessary.  I do like the idea of the table top trays because since I have messy eaters it is a great wipeable surface that can go right over my table linens and protect them while allowing the kids to be kids.  Also, they provide a nice surface for crafts, games and writing.  So to sum it up for you, we love these chairs!!!  I feel so blessed to have connected with such a wonderful company like Stokke, their support through all of this has been phenomenal, they have excellent customer service and they truly care about your satisfaction.

So now I am thrilled to let you know that Stokke is sponsoring a giveaway on Mommy Ramblings.  One lucky blog reader will win their color choice of the Stokke Tripp Trap High Chair (excluding signature collection) complete with the Baby Set (ARV $330).
