Our Analysis

The problem with most high chairs is that your baby will outgrow it. What we love about the Stokke Tripp Trapp is that it is a high quality high chair, that then converts to a very functional child's chair that can be used for many, many, years.

The optional Stokke Baby Set for the Tripp Trapp high chair provides additional support for babies and small children.

The Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair is a beautiful addition to anyone's home and provides a secure and sturdy option for seating a baby from 6 months of age and then into childhood. It grows with your child with its easy adjustments and can hold up to 300 pounds. Made of cultivated beechwood and available in an array of distinctive colors, the Stokke high chair is ergonomically designed with a footrest for comfort. There is also a five-point harness system for infants that works well with the high chair for children 3 years and younger, but when purchasing the high chair make sure to note whether or not the harness is included.

For babies, we recommend getting the optional Stokke Baby Set, which is sold separately from the high chair for $70. The Baby Set seat adds another level of support for babies and toddlers with its backrest and baby rail.

Once your baby has grown  you can then use the Stokke with the 5-point harness with a toddler. Later  remove the 5-point harness  adjust the seat and leg heights  and you can use it as a child's chair for years to come.
