Tripp Trapp Chair - A modern classic.
The Tripp Trapp Chair, created in 1972 by the designer Peter Posvik, has never been bettered. In 1972 revoluiton was a afct. Back then no one had seen anything like the Tripp Trapp and almost 40 years later it is still unique: the only child's chair that can take you from baby to adult keeping you secure and comfortable all the way.
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 highchair, but still far too small to sit on an adult's chair, Tor was left dangling his legs and strugging to reach the table.
What do you do when your feet don't reach teh floor and you can't shift your weight when you feel the need? Well, you can't move teh chair down to the bround, 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.
We Know: you're busy. Everyone's busy. Life moves fast, and so do you. These days, we're always on the go. That's why shared meals and moments spent siting round atable are more important than ever. The Tripp Trapp is an ingenious baby chair designed to fit right into your table, bringing your baby rign into the heart of your family, allowing her or him to learn and develop right alongside you. And it is also the chair that grows with your child, meaning it can be used right into adulthood. The Tripp Trapp chair's intelligent, ergonomic design allows freedom of movement and encourages play and independence, while still making safety and security paramount.
Tripp Trapp adjusts to the size of your child, ensuring he or she is always at the perfect height to eat, play and interact, with his or her feet proplerly supported, at whatever age.
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 teh 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, the still should never really be seated for more than 10-15 minutes at a time - long enough to eat, not to sleep. Babie's spines and muscle structures are at a delicate state 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 y our 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 finters' width clearance from the seat front to aid circulation. As the child grows, see to that approximately 3/4 of theigh thigh is supported by the seat plate.
