Trippin and Trappin

Remember way back when Blondie Boy was not even 3 months old and he reviewed the Stokke Table Top? Well we were lucky enough to be able to try out the fabulous and functional Tripp Trapp that it is an accessory for now he is big enough!

The Tripp Trapp chair adapts to the size of your child - and the child always sits at the right height at the table with their feet supported at the same time. This ensures a perfect fit for children of all sizes allowing them to sit correctly and comfortably while interacting with the family at the dinner table. The no-tray design allows the Tripp Trapp to pull right up to the table to encourage communication. Blondie Boy seems to like his doesn't he?

We put the Tripp Trapp in our dining room and tested it out while we had his Grandma over for dinner. He seemed to love sitting at the table and certainly enjoyed playing the drums on the table. He was content for most of dinner, but towards the end twisted and wanted to get out of the chair, but he generally doesn't sit still long no matter where he is!

The chair is gorgeous and I love that it will last Blondie Boy as he grows into a bigger boy and even an adult. It is certainly stylish and does not look out of place in our dining room. It was easy for NotBlondeHusband to assemble and the baby set slotted in easily as well. The only drawback I see is it is not practical for feeding away from the table. I have to admit most of the time we feed Blondie Boy in the living room; I know we are bad, but I aspire to eat in the dining room more as he grows older. I love that he will be able to sit at the table with us for his first Thanksgiving!

The Tripp Trapp is available in 12 colours and you can find your nearest retailer by clicking here.

I am SO glad you reviewed this product, especially today. I was in the market to replace the one we registered for, and my husband asked why they couldn't pull up to the table. I read your review, did some research, and now its on my registry! Thanks!

So glad I could help! Make sure to register for the baby set and you can get all sorts of cute and funky cushions and other accessories like the Table Top, too!

We love ours, and have been using it since Finn was about 8 months. One of the best investments we made!
