Awkward dinners have long been fodder for laughter on-screen. However, awkward dinners at home are less than ideal—ESPECIALLY when dealing with a nugget. No one likes a giant plastic chair in their house, and no one SHOULD have to like it. The trays are hard to clean, the crevices get food slime in them, and the footprint is big. No, the footprint is GIGANTIC. Add to this the fact that standard high chairs actually keep your child quite far away from the table and in an awkward postion for feeding, and your dinner just went to crap. Thankfully, Stokke is on top of it, Rose.
Stokke is a Norwegian-based company and all of their designs are based around child development and familial interaction. Created in 1972 (6 years before I was born!), the Tripp Trapp, I believe, best personifies what the company is about. According to the designer, Peter Opsvik:
“In 1972 the only sitting devices for children from the age of two onwards were special, low chairs, or ordinary chairs designed and intended for grown-ups. My objective was that one chair should seat persons of all sizes in a natural way at the same table. My hope was that this would make sitting at the table more enjoyable and make activities easier to perform there.”
The absolute genius of the Tripp Trapp, aside from it’s ease-of-use, is its ability to grow with your child. With an optional Baby Set, the Tripp Trapp is able to be used from 6 months until 300 pounds. Yes, you read that correctly. With a height and depth adjustable seat as well as adjustable foot support, the Tripp Trapp is an incredibly versatile chair that you will love for years. One of the greatest features of the TT is the foot rest: because it is fully adjustable, it will support your nugget’s posture and eliminate slouching. In fact, your nugg will sit longer because they feel supported, making dinner as glorious as it can possibly be.
Speaking of glorious, I currently use one for extra seating in my apartment. No joke. You can come visit. Well, maybe we can be Facebook friends first. Speaking of Facebook….
