Stokke Tripp Trapp Review

There is lots of excitement in the Jones household, because our new Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair arrived the other day from Back in Action and we are loving it!!



We already have the Xplory and the Sleepi so you could say we are Stokke converts. If you have been following my blog you will know that we were undecided between the Stokke and the Bloom high chairs. Well we came to a compromise with me getting to chose the colour scheme. The Tripp trapp comes in a huge variety of colours, but I felt the white went best with our decor. To make the chair a little more fun, I went for the Purple baby seat and the purple tails cushion. The Tails cushion is soooo cute, it has a little animal design in pink and purple shades AND it is also water repellant, which we love!!!




I put the chair together myself. It wasn't complicated taking me about thirty minutes or so. I just wish that someone had told me before not to tighten the screws until the end because I ended up losening them time and time again while I added the chair back and the footrests etc.



This high chair doesn't come with a tray, so the great thing about this is that little E gets to sit at the dining table with us which she absolutely loves. Instead I ordered the Table Top, which is like a transparent tray that attaches very firmly to the dining table with little suckers. It comes with four different templates that you can change around easily. We also bought the harness although I haven't used this yet. You can just about see the tray below



All in all I am super happy that Mr Jones convinced me to chose this high chair over the Bloom one. It is really teeny and takes up hardly any room in our already packed flat. Like most Stokke products it is rather cleverly designed to grow with your baby. As your child gets older, you can remove the baby seat, lower the foot rests etc. So although initially the Tripp Trapp seems on the expensive side, you can actually justify this by the years of use you will get out of it compared to other brands.

  1. This is absolutely the best high chair. We are still using it as a chair for GG and she is 7. This or the Svan are the best around

  4. We love our Tripp Trapp we got sent and have been using the newborn seat loads to include baby in mealtimes. She seems to love being part of it all too! I almost bought one way back when I had my eldest and for some reason got sucked in by all the gadgets on other high chairs. I really wish I hadn't as I never used half of the gimmicks on them and they took up so much room in our dining room and were really heavy. I would now recommend the Tripp Tapp all the way! love it! Should have gone with my gut first time round! x

    1. They're brilliant aren't they, we'll definitely be buying another one for Baby Jones 2.0! I love how they grown with the child and with so much baby paraphernalia around the house, it's nice that this actually blends in with the rest of our furniture!

  5. How do you find the white? I am looking at getting one that fits with our house but I think the white is best, but I'm worried about it getting dirty very easy and scuff marks.
