What Stokke Tripp Trapp accessories do I need and when?
The Stokke Tripp Trapp is a sturdy, wooden chair suitable for your growing child. It is both practical, stylish and functional, but it is also a chair that will make your child feel part of the family from the very beginning. There are numerous accessories available for the Stokke Tripp Trapp, including a harness, cushion, tray and more. Which Stokke accessory do you need for which age? Here is a brief overview.
Baby from 0 to 6 months old - Newborn Set
The name says it all: the Stokke Newborn Set is best suited for newborn babies from 0 to six months old. If your child is still too young to sit up on his or her own, the Newborn Set is perfect for you, as it allows you to transform your Stokke Tripp Trapp into a baby chair in no time. It is actually a seat with a soft cushion that you can snap on top of the chair, adjustable in two different positions. The set also comes with a toy to play with, so your baby won't get bored. With the Newborn Set your baby is always close by, even when you are sitting at the table.
Baby from 6 to 36 months - Baby Set
Once your baby can sit independently on the floor, your child may also sit on the Stokke Tripp Trapp chair using the Baby Set. The Stokke Baby Set is a plastic insert with a back shelf and brace that you click directly into the Tripp Trapp. This gives you a small seat where your baby can sit safely and comfortably with you at the table.
You can also add a tray dining tray to this set. This turns your Stokke chair into a real high chair, with tabletop and all. This also allows you to use the Tripp Trapp chair for all meal times throughout the day, from breakfast to dinner and in between meals. To make the seat even softer for your baby, you can also find numerous cushions for the Baby Set in a variety of patterns, colors and materials. These are usually easy to change and machine wash.
When your baby tries to climb out - Harness
A baby's first year is full of magical moments: sitting up, crawling, standing for the first time - maybe your baby is even saying their first words or taking their first steps! But, the more your baby learns, the more they also push the limits. At some point, your child will also try to climb out of the chair. Should that start to happen, it's handy to clip your baby on with the harness in the Baby set. With these straps you can offer your baby additional safety. When you find that the Baby Set is getting small or your child is more comfortable on the chair itself, you can still use the harness for that extra security, or omit them altogether.
Child 1 - 99 years
Once your child can climb on and off the chair by himself, you can leave out the newborn set and baby set. From now on, you can lower the seat and foot boards as your child grows. Once you notice that the seat is too high for your child, you can easily lower the seat a bit. This way you can actually use the chair for the rest of your life, up to a maximum of 75 kg. And when a second (or third, or fourth) child comes along, just dust off the accessories again and put the shelves back up.
Do you have a kitchen island and want your son or daughter to join you as you cook or work in the kitchen? Then the BoosterMe booster chair is a suitable accessory for you. Normally, the Stokke chair is too low for a kitchen island, so children cannot sit nicely at the kitchen counter. But with the BoosterMe, you can raise your Stokke Tripp Trapp slightly higher, giving it more the height of a bar stool. This also allows your child to help with the cooking - or at least keep an eye on you! Take a look in our store to see what options there are.
