* I received the Stokke Tripp Trapp® Chair to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*
There comes a point where your little boy or girl simply outgrows their high chair, but they are still too small to sit in an adult sized chair at the table. So we buy booster seats and pretty much try anything we can come up with to get them to a comfortable position to get them acquainted with eating at the table like a “big boy/girl.” Sound familiar?
Well Stokke, the brand of those amazing strollers, has a great solution that will grow with your child as they do. The Tripp Trapp® is an ingenious baby chair designed to fit right into your table, bringing your baby right into the heart of your family, allowing her or him to learn and develop right alongside you. And it is also the chair that grows with your child, meaning it can be used right into adulthood. The Tripp Trapp® chair’s intelligent, ergonomic design allows freedom of movement and encourages play and independence, while still making safety and security paramount.
The Tripp Trapp® chair’s unique adjustability makes it possible to ensure your child is sitting with elbows at table height and feet supported, leaving room between the seat and the child’s calves. The legs should be supported at approximately 90 degrees. The back of the knees should for babies have about two fingers’ width clearance from the seat front to aid circulation. As the child grows, see to that approximately ¾ of their thigh is supported by the seat plate.
The Tripp Trapp chair is completely customizable: you pick your wood color, cushions and accessories (like trays, harnesses, and extended gliders) to suit your child’s needs. At first my oldest son made a funny little face at chair at the table (it IS a unique looking chair after all), but when I showed him how it was made for him, he immediately plopped himself down for dinner. It’s been love ever since and he loves the fact that he has his own “special” chair!
