What is a Tripp Trapp chair?

The Tripp Trapp chair is a customizable, long-lasting high chair made by Norwegian brand Stokke and is designed to grow with your child from infancy to their teen years and beyond.

In 1972, Stokke first launched the Tripp Trapp chair, though the company has been making high quality Scandinavian furniture for many years prior. Designed by Peter Opsvik, the revolutionary Tripp Trapp design is timeless, low-maintenance, and ergonomic, allowing your child to have a seat at the dining table with the family to foster development and connection.

What ages does the Tripp Trapp support?

Without any additions, the Tripp Trapp chair on its own can be used from around 3 years up to adulthood, with a weight capacity of 242 pounds. However, the most popular ways to purchase the Tripp Trapp are the Tripp Trapp High Chair and the Tripp Trapp High Chair Complete Bundle - the high chair mode includes a part called the Baby Set that helps support your child from 6 months up to 3 years of age with an attached adjustable harness, and the complete bundle includes the Baby Set, a dishwasher-safe tray, and seat cushion for extra comfort in select colors. Stokke prices the High Chair Complete Bundle at a slightly lower price than what you would pay when purchasing each item separately. You can also use the Tripp Trapp from birth with the addition of the Newborn Set to bring your child close to everyone at meal time - even before they're ready to sit upright or eat solid foods.

For additional comfort, Stokke makes cushions designed for each Tripp Trapp stage of development many of which have a variety of colors and patterns to choose from that Stokke regularly updates:

Why is the Tripp Trapp so popular?

There are many features in the Tripp Trapp that have helped it to become so well-loved. It has a contemporary yet classic design with the option to customize the chair color, cushion style and pattern to complement a variety of interior styles, the durable all-wood frame is long lasting (and includes a 7 year warranty against defects), and the many adjustments to the chair seat and footrest ensure your child is comfortable at every stage of development.

Although Stokke often changes the chair finish selection from season to season, one thing stays the same - you're sure to find a wood tone or paint color that complements the rest of your home or adds a splash of color! Most of the Tripp Trapp options are made with solid construction and European beech wood, with the option in select colors for Oak wood instead. This sturdy material will endure for years and can support adults up to 242 pounds, so you just might want a matching chair for yourself!

What advantages does the Tripp Trapp have over a traditional high chair?

Unlike a traditional high chair, which can often be bulky, made with many plastic components, or designed for more limited use (typically from 6 months to 3 years of age, and with limited weight capacities), the Tripp Trapp is built to last.

Although the high chair stage of the Tripp Trapp is quite standard, recommended from 6 months to 3 years with the baby set and harness attachment, its 242 pound weight capacity allows for your child to continue using this chair long after they outgrow the baby and toddler stage. The chair can also comfortably seat an older child or an adult thanks to the highly adjustable seat and foot rest:

Its frame is narrow at 18.1" wide, so will fit comfortably at the table with other seating. Since the baby seat is designed to reach standard table height, your child can comfortably sit right up to the table, without creating a barrier that many standard high chairs cause due to widely angled legs or tall tray positioning.

The all-wood frame is built to last and easy to adjust when needed. Most colors are made with beech, a strong and fine-grained wood that is popular for furniture making, and the beech models come in a variety of colors and stains that complement many interior styles. Stokke also makes the Tripp Trapp in Oak, which has a more distinctive grain and comes in three neutral finishes.
