Stokke Tripp Trapp


In our opinion, the Stokke Tripp Trapp by far the best high chair on the market. It looks great, is comfy, grows with your child and is super easy to clean. Your baby sits right up to the table in it, which makes them feel like part of family mealtimes from day one.

The Tripp Trapp  a pricey bit of kit, but given that it’s almost guaranteed to see all your children through their various high chair phases, it actually represents good value for money. This versatility is made possible with a ‘newborn set’ and a ‘baby set’, which are sold separately. A Tripp Trapp always has and always will hold its value, so when you’re done with it you can sell it on. Or if you’re feeling like spreading the love, give it to a friend who will be grateful to you forever.

7 reasons to buy the Stokke Tripp Trapp

The Stokke Tripp Trapp is ergonomic, encouraging good posture at all ages. It’s amazing that this is a rarity for high chairs, but it is, with so many of them doing nothing to stop your baby ending up as a little unsupported lump.

There’s no tray or anything to stop the Tripp Trapp going right up to the table. This means your baby can sit right up there with everyone else, so they always feel part of any family meal rather being put in something that’s like a little baby annexe.

It’s a timelessly well-designed piece of furniture. It comes in a range of on-trend colours or just natural wood. Due to its Scandinavian design simplicity, it genuinely looks great around any table, rather than having to be folded up and put in a cupboard after bed time. The same can’t be said for your average plastic high chair – something like a Graco Teatime  or a Chicco Polly.

The Stokke Tripp Trapp will see your child through from newborn (if you buy the newborn set) to baby and toddler (with the baby set), then beyond.

It is incredibly durable, we know people who have owned Stokke Tripp Trapps since the 1970s. There are no breakable parts on it – you’d literally have to take a hammer to it (not recommended).

The simplicity of the Stokke Tripp Trapp’s design means it’s exceptionally easy to wipe clean. There are barely any fiddly bits for food to get stuck in so your baby won’t discover a 3-day old fluffy carrot down the side of it. The add ons are also machine washable.

It holds its value really well, so you’ll be able to sell it on for a good price when you’re done with it (or pass it on if you’re feeling generous).

2 reasons not to buy the Stokke Tripp Trapp

– The Stokke Tripp Trapp is at the pricier end of high chairs / baby furniture, but it lasts for years so this cost is pretty much evened out when your 6 year old is still using it.

– If you have a particularly agile / adventurous small person, he or she may be able to climb out. If this is the case you’ll need to buy the straps (which solve this problem).


The Stokke Tripp Trapp is one of those rare pieces of baby kit that you should just buy without thinking twice. It’s incredibly comfortable, it gets your baby right up to the table, it looks great and it’s totally versatile. If you’re put off by the price, think of it as a long term investment that you can sell on when you’re done with it. Now just pick your favourite colour and go for it!
