I’ll be honest, when we found out we were having Zach one of the first things I thought about was all of the baby stuff we had to again. Ok, so I may have mentioned that a few 100 times in the past year. Seriously though, I didn’t want my house to looking like Babies R Us. Recently it’s become apparent that it was finally time to break down and get a highchair.
I started by going to the local baby store and quickly left. I just didn’t want a hugh piece of plastic sitting in my kitchen. ESPECIALLY after all the work we’ve been do redecorating.
This is where the story gets good. Stokke swooped in and saved the day! Here’s my DISCLOSURE, yes Stokke sent me 2 Tripp Trapp highchairs. I can hear you know, why 2? One for Zach, who is just a year and one for Ellie who is 6.
Because of the adjustable chair height and foot rest height both of my kids can use these chairs adults! There are so many things I love about these chairs!!
1. They maximum weight is something like 300 pounds, which means that I can sit in this chair as well. It great to have 2 extra back up chairs when company comes over.
2. I don’t have to keep repeating “Ellie sit on your bum”. Because the back of the chair is close and the foot rest is adjustable, she’s always the right height for the table and her back is supported.
3. So easy to clean! Honestly, aside from the try that I just wash off in the sink, everything else I just wipe down with a damp cloth.
4. The look! How adorable are these chairs! I don’t feel like my house is being taken over by kids furniture with these chair in the room. The Tripp Trapp comes in several colors, included the new aqua blue that I have and a new lava orange which I love as well.
5. I kinda feel a little cooler know that I have a piece of furniture that has also been displayed at MoMa
A few other little facts that I love…
There are schools in Japan that use these in the classroom. Because of their design, they encourage the kids to sit up straight and fidget less.
The Tripp Trapp has also been used in numerous autism treatments programs. Because it keeps legs and arms at 90 degrees, it helps reduce the amount of fidgeting.
Do I have to mention that it’s Norwegian? 😉
Again, a quick disclosure. Stokke was kind enough to send me both Tripp Trapps, but all opinions are my own.
