Stokke high chairs: tested by real parents

Stokke high chairs: tested by real parents

by Stephanie Anthony |

Combining skandi style with functionality,Stokke produces timeless designs that can grow with your child. Covering a range of categories including car seats, bathtime and nursery furniture, in this article we'll be getting real parent reviews of their high chairs.

Here's what our testers thought of Stokke's three high chair products:

What were your first impressions of each of the highchairs when you received them?

Laura: I thought the Clikk looked very small and compact, I received it in white so it looked quite basic once set up. Both the Steps and Tripp Trapp took some time to set up as assembly was more complex but both looked very impressive once completed. All three fitted easily within my kitchen and didn’t take up a lot of space so that was a great first impression!

What did you like most about the Steps, CLIKK and Tripp Trapp highchairs?

Faye: The adaptability of the Tripp Trapp chair is excellent and I have to admit, I am really impressed with it. We love the way the highchair can be adapted, not only with the different accessories, but changing the height of the seat and footrest is brilliant. Our toddler told me that she "loves it" and to be honest, its very difficult to get her out of the chair now. We love that she is sat correctly and its really helping her posture. The curved style of the Steps chair is really good as we felt it was a good next step for our toddler, from a traditional high chair as she feels safe in it. This chair is at her grandparents house as she goes regularly and she loves her "big girls" chair. It is a nice piece of furniture for their house. The ability to take the Clikk high chair with you is excellent and we love the way it collapses and can fit in the carry bag. We'll be taking it with us when we go for weekends away in the UK. We do also really love the fact it can be popped in the dishwasher.

Is there a feature you would like to see on Steps, CLIKK and Tripp Trapp in the future?

Laura: For the Clikk, I understand there are 2 positions for the foot rest however it would be good if different levels were available so you could move the foot rest up or down as your baby grows. It would be great if there could be easier assembly for both the Steps and Tripp Trapp; due to some of the positions it was very difficult to use the Allen key to secure the screws, this made set up quite time-consuming for both.

Would you use the any of the highchairs again? If so, which and why?

Laura: I would definitely use all three again dependent on babies’ age. My little girl is 7 months so the Clikk was most suitable for our needs however when looking after my twin nieces who are older, the Steps and Tripp Trapp were definitely more suitable. I think if I was to have a newborn I would opt for either the Steps or Tripp Trapp as these are both comprehensive high chairs that really grow with your child so you don’t need to worry about changing high chairs as they grow up.

Faye: Yes we will be using them all for a variety of reasons but our favourite by far is the Tripp Trapp. In fact I think we are going to buy another of these so our children have one each. We were blown away by the flexibility of the high chair, including the brilliant newborn attachment which means our 4-month-old boy can be part of meal times, and the ability to change it into a chair for an adult is perfect. Its provided us with an additional chair!

Would you recommend the Steps, CLIKK and Tripp Trapp to others?

Faye: Yes I'd definitely recommend them all. I've already advised a few family members and friends of how awesome and well worth the money that the Tripp Trapp is. Depending on what the person wanted from their highchair, I would recommend the different others too.

Laura: Yes I would definitely recommend all three of these high chairs. I would recommend the Steps or Tripp Trapp to first time parents as it’s such an important purchase and Stokke have really thought of all your needs when it comes to a high chair so that stress is taken away.

Which of the three highchairs would you purchase and why?

Faye: The Tripp Trapp and we may purchase another! We absolutely love the way it adapts according to the height of your child. We do love the newborn seat too. Our baby can comfortably be a part of family meal times which is excellent. The only thing is I wish the cushions were waterproof/wipeable as we are potty training!
