Children love interacting with the family and with today’s hectic lifestyle it is more important than ever to encourage special moments of togetherness. The Tripp Trapp enables your child to sit at the table at the same height as adults, allowing for maximum social contact and quality time together. The unique geometry of the Tripp Trapp means it can be positioned close to the dining table, allowing your child to share the table as opposed to using a separate high chair tray.
Proper support for your growing child: When children sit on adult chairs or in a traditional high chair, they often lose contact with the floor with their legs dangling in mid-air. This makes it difficult for them to move and interact around the table. They are also often too short to comfortably reach the table with their arms without having to raise their arms and shoulders. The revolutionary Tripp Trapp rectifies these problems by means of adjustments that allow the Tripp Trapp to perfectly fit your child whatever their age and height – from infancy throughout childhood - and promote natural posture along with a feeling of security and support.
Tripp Trapp Chair Accessories (sold separately):
Baby Set: The Tripp Trapp can be used from around 6-9 months - or when baby is able to sit up without help or support. At this young age and to around 3 years, you will need the Tripp Trapp Baby Set which consists of back support, rail and crotch strap, providing a cosy and safe seat for your child.
Cushion: Personalise the Tripp Trapp by adding cushions in different colours and designs. The cushion is soft and comfortable for your child.
Table Top: The perfect surface to experiment with drawing, painting and any other play that will help your child in their development.
Newborn Set: Fills the gap from birth to 6 months, providing your baby with a safe and comfortable place at the table with the rest of the family.
Please note: The v4 Tripp Trapp chairs have an attached harness. If you also wish to purchase the Tripp Trapp Baby Set and Tripp Trapp Cushion, please ensure you also purchase the v4 styles, as the v3 styles will not fit.
My 2 boys have a Tripp Trapp each and my oldest son who is now almost 7 still favours his over any other chair. The quality is exceptional and I really do think it addresses the issue of excluding youngsters from the social atmosphere of the dining table as they can feel much closer and part of the conversation when they are seated and using the table like adults, rather than having a high chair tray.

There are cheaper versions out there but I think this one is worth the extra cost as it as an x factor about it & the accessories (harness) look more secure & just nicer to look at than on the cheaper ones. I fine it hard to get it really clean, given the cost I'm reluctant to use anything too harsh on it in case it damages the wood.
Love this high chair. Well worth the money. It rated well in consumer nz tests. Does take some concentration to put together with all accessories but well worth it. My daughter loves sitting at the table.
