The name Stokke is synonymous with European style; their wooden high chairs can last a lifetime, as well as be passed down to future generations. Stokke’s high chairs feature high-quality materials, timeless style, and ergonomic designs which make them some of the most popular high chairs available today!
Stokke has been around since 1972 when they first released the Tripp Trapp. The Tripp Trapp is its most popular high chair and has won many awards over the years for being both functional and classically stylish.

Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair Overview
The Stokke Tripp Trapp is timeless, and has been a family-favorite since 1972 with more than 11 million chairs sold around the world. The Tripp Trapp wooden high chair has a number of color options, as well as cushion designs and accessories to make its style blend with yours – no matter where you put it.
The revolutionary, and iconic design solves a problem of comfortable seating for babies, toddlers, and children. The adjustable footplate ensures ergonomic and comfortable seating, allowing children to be part of “life around the table” and safe eating!
The Tripp Trapp grows with your baby with a height-adjustable seat and foot rest. The Newborn Set (sold separately) attaches to the chair to be used with newborns before converting the Tripp Trapp to a high chair with optional tray. When your child outgrows the high chair and no longer needs the harness, the baby set is removable and the Tripp Trapp is transformed into a regular wooden chair that can even support the weight of an adult.
Stokke Steps High Chair Overview
The Stokke Steps is similar to the Tripp Trapp in that it can grow with your child from newborn with a bouncer attachment, to high chair, to a regular chair that can even seat an adult!
The Steps Bouncer (sold separately) attaches to the Steps chair and can also be used independently as a bouncy seat on the floor. When your child is ready for a high chair, the Steps includes an adjustable footrest and an adjustable backrest that can support your baby through their toddler years. The Steps baby set and tray can easily be removed to convert the Steps into a chair that you can use for years to come.
Stokke Clikk High Chair Overview
The Stokke Clikk has a tool-free design that is lightweight, easy to clean, and even travel-friendly with an optional travel bag for those who travel a lot. The Clikk has a simple design with a small footprint, elegant Scandanavian styling, and color options to suit any taste.
The Clikk is aptly named as its pieces simply click together for easy assembly and disassembly. The high chair only weighs only 8 pounds. This perfect travel companion high chair is well-suited for baby through toddler years. Unlike the Tripp Trapp and Steps, the Clikk does not support newborns or children over the age of 3.
Stokke Tripp Trapp vs Steps vs Clikk Age & Weight Limits
- Stokke Clikk – approximately 6 months to around 3 years old
- Steps – Newborn (with Bouncer) to Adult (187 lbs max)
- Tripp Trapp – Newborn (with Newborn Set) to Adult (242 lbs max)
The Stokke Clikk is comparable to an average high chair’s useful lifespan: from approximately 6 months to around age 3 or when they outgrow it.
The Stokke Tripp Trapp and Stokke Steps can be used for newborns through adulthood which allows you to begin using the chairs earlier and continue using them for well beyond the high chair years! Adding either of these high chairs to your gift registry makes a lot of sense when you realize you can start using them right away with the right accessories.
Below, we’ll look at the Stokke Chairs for Newborns, in a Baby Configuration, and as just a Chair.
Stokke Newborn Set vs Stokke Steps Bouncer
The Stokke Steps and Tripp Trapp allow you to bring your newborn with you to the dining table (or anywhere around the house). Parents appreciate the added simplicity to their life by being able to attend to their baby’s every need without sacrificing a normal eating routine and family time around the table. The routine of having your baby at the table for every meal before they can even eat will make the transition to the high chair and dining table much easier and more familiar. The accessories necessary to use the chairs with newborns are the Newborn Set for the Tripp Trapp and the Steps Bouncer for the Steps.
- Tripp Trapp: Birth through 6 months with Tripp Trapp Newborn Set
- Steps: Birth through 6 months with Steps Bouncer
- Clikk: Cannot be used with newborns
The Newborn Set (sold separately for $149.99), attaches easily to the Tripp Trapp, but cannot be used as a standalone product like the Steps Bouncer.
- 5-point safety harness
- 2 positions with one-hand trigger for angle adjustment
- Includes toy arm
- Removable upholstery is machine washable
- Available in Grey with various cover options
The Steps Bouncer (sold separately for $199.99) can be used by itself on the floor, or easily attached to the Steps high chair. When used alone, the baby’s movements power the springing action to gently and naturally rock the baby, providing a similar sensation to being cradled by a parent.
- Multiple seating positions
- Can be used as a standalone bouncer
- Sturdy base to avoid sliding
- Folds flat for easy storage
- Includes removable baby insert, toy hanger, and shoulder pads on straps
- Available in a variety of colors and patterns including Grey, Clouds, Mountains, and more
Unlike the Tripp Trapp and Steps, the Stokke Clikk cannot be used until your baby can sit upright (approximately 6 months of age).
Parents should cease using the Bouncer and Newborn Set once a baby reaches around 6 months old, hits a weight threshold for the item or can sit unassisted.

Stokke High Chairs for Babies and Toddlers
The harnesses and restraints (known as a baby set) used by Stokke High Chairs all achieve the same goal of bringing your baby to the table for meal time by securing them with a harness around the shoulders and an easy-to-clean plastic restraint system that goes between the legs and around the waist.
The baby set and tray are a single piece that snaps into the chair for the Clikk.
Since both the Tripp Trapp and Steps can be purchased as a standalone chair – baby sets can be purchased individually. Stokke also has two bundled options available for both the Tripp Trapp and Steps:
- High Chair (chair with the baby set/harness)
- Complete(chair, baby set/harness, tray, and cushion)
The three high chairs from Stokke can be used from approximately 6 months to 3 years of age with the baby set and harness.
- Tripp Trapp: 6 months to approximately 3 years with baby set and harness
- Steps: 6 months to approximately 3 years with baby set and harness
- Clikk: 6 months to approximately 3 years with harness

Stokke Chairs for Toddlers, Children, and Adults
When your child has outgrown the high chair configuration, you can seamlessly transition them to a chair configuration with any of the Stokke high chairs. The chair configuration is still better suited to your child’s needs than a regular dining chair since it offers proper foot support with adjustable positions.
The Stokke Clikk can only be used until around the age of 3 (or 33 lbs). The Stokke Tripp Trapp and Steps can continue to be used past the age of 3 for the dining table, at a desk, in a play room, etc. They are both rated to hold the weight of a full grown adult with specific weight ratings listed in the list below.
- Tripp Trapp: 3 years to 242 pounds
- Steps: 3 years to 187 pounds
- Clikk: Suitable up to about 3 years or 33 pounds
