Why is the Tripp Trapp the Most Popular High Chair?

From blog posts to mom groups, when the question “What’s your favorite high chair?” comes up, a resounding winner is “the Tripp Trapp!” So what is it about the Tripp Trapp that people love?

It has a timeless design

The Tripp Trapp has been around since 1972, and remains largely unchanged from its initial concept. It has a unique design with a simplicity to it that works well with any décor.

Ergonomic high chair seating

The Tripp Trapp allows babies, toddlers, and children to sit upright and keep their legs bent at a 90 degree angle. A lot of high chairs lean back, don’t include a foot rest, or the tray can sit too high or low for your child to eat comfortably.

According to Newways Nutrition, “hips, knees, and feet [should be] all at 90 degrees to promote proper eating dynamics and allow your baby to get the most out of mealtimes.”

It seems very few other high chairs fit that bill today.

You don’t need a tray

With the Tripp Trapp, you can bring the high chair right to the table for your baby to eat. This is great to start a lifetime of good eating habits!

So many color and wood choices

There are few other high chairs on the market with as many color choices as the Tripp Trapp! There are currently 16 options for colors & type of wood.

Unlike many other high chair manufacturers, there are a number of neutral options that can blend in with the style and design of your own home rather than be bright and “kid-like”.

An eco-friendly option

Made entirely from wood and metal (the only plastic being the baby set and tray), the Tripp Trapp is one of the most eco-friendly high chairs you can buy. The wood is sustainably harvested in Europe and finished with non-toxic paints & stains.

Another reason is because the Tripp Trapp is able to be used for many years. A lot of less expensive and mostly plastic high chairs are only useful for a few years and often end up in landfills after that. In fact, the EPA estimates that 9 million tons of furniture end up in landfills every year! The Tripp Trapp is a durable high chair, toddler seat, children’s chair, and can even be kept around and used as an adult seat!
