Tripp Trapp® chair
A modern classic.
The Tripp Trapp® designer’s inspiration came from watching his own young son, Tor, struggle to find a comfortable position to sit in at their family table. Having grown out of his old-fashioned high-chair, but still far too small to sit on an adult’s chair, Tor was left dangling his legs and struggling to reach the table.
Tripp Trapp® Benefits
The chair that grows with the child.®
What do you do when your feet don’t reach the floor and you can’t shift your weight when you feel the need? Well, you can’t move the chair down to the ground, because then your elbows won’t reach the table. So how about moving the floor up to meet your feet? That’s what the Tripp Trapp® does, by providing a stable footrest that supports a child’s feet and allows it to sit at the correct height, its elbows inheight with the table, in comfort and security. Then there’s the problem of your upper body not being supported because the back rest is too far away. The Tripp Trapp® chair’s unique depth adjustability solves that one, meaning that no matter how big or small your baby, his or her feet and back can be perfectly supported. Not only does this chair grow with your child, it can adjust to custom fit your child’s body, enabling comfortable and natural ergonomic sitting.
Are you sitting comfortably?
But there are some things to bear in mind. Stokke® recommends limited use of any high chair when a child is very young. Yes, even the ergonomically designed Tripp Trapp®. Of course, later on the child can decide when to sit and when to walk around, but in the early days of a child’s life, parents need to be aware that until a baby can sit up without support – usually at about 6-9 months - it’s better off playing on a clean floor, on a play mat or even in a playpen.
Once babies can sit up unaided, they still should never really be seated for more than 10 to 15 minutes at a time - long enough to eat, not to sleep. Babies’ spines and muscle structures are at a delicate stage of development so their feet and backs should be properly supported at all times.
The Tripp Trapp® chair’s unique adjustability makes it possible to ensure your child is sitting with elbows at table height and feet supported, leaving room between the seat and the child’s calves. The legs should be supported at approximately 90 degrees. The back of the knees should for babies have about two fingers’ width clearance from the seat front to aid circulation. As the child grows, see to that approximately ¾ of their thigh is supported by the seat plate.

How to adjust your Tripp Trapp®
Seat and footrest placement
It is important to adjust the depth and height of the seat and footrest to fit the size of your child. The position of the seat and footrest should be checked as the child grows - at least once a year! The seat plate and the footrest must be supported by the full length of the grooves on the sides (not half way supported)
The seat is at the correct height when your child’s elbows are level with the table top.
DepthFor correct depth of the seat, position the child’s back against the backrest with the seat supporting ¾ of the thighs. For the child’s best comfort it is important that the seat depth is not too deep. Leave comfortable space between the front edge of the seat and back of the child’s knee. It is surprising how small a seat a 6-8 month-old baby needs! The seat plate should not protrude more than 4-5 cm in front of the side legs.
HeightThe footrest is at the correct height when the sole of the child’s foot can rest flat on the footrest, while the thighs are touching the seat.
DepthMake sure the forward edge of the footrest NEVER protudes beyond the front tip of the chair legs at floor level.
Wipe with a clean damp cloth, wipe off excess of water with a dry cloth. Moisture will leave cracks in stain. We do not recommend the use of any detergent or micro fibre cloth. Colours may change if the high chair is exposed to sunlight.
The chair is made of cultivated beech. The varnish contains no harmful substances, and the liberation of formaldehyde from the varnish complies with E1 requirements.
