I have a hot new product from Stokke® to share with you all today. A brand new blue Tripp Trapp®.
For those of you out there that don't know what a Tripp Trapp® is - where have you been? This iconic product was launched 37 years ago back in 1972 and since then it has clocked up nearly 7 million sales around the world.
When DinoBoy was born it was the one thing that I dreamt about day and night. I wanted one so bad that it hurt but I couldn't justify to myself spending over £100 on a highchair so in my ignorance I bought myself one of those convertible cube things. I hated it. DinoBoy hated it and it didn't take me long to purchase highchair number 2. This time I went for some hideously big Mamas & Papas creation. I hated this too. It was so big that it took over our small kitchen and it had so many places for food to get trapped that it was a nightmare to clean.
So when I was pregnant again with ModelGirl the following year, I threw caution to the wind and finally handed over my cash and came home with my Tripp Trapp®.
I fell instantly in love with it. Lets face it - how could you not? So when ModelGirl was born I went out and bought another one and then number 3 when FunnyGirl came along.
As a highchair the Tripp Trapp® is great. I love that it sits up close to the table and that we can all share our mealtimes together. But it's when your little ones are at that in between stage - too big for a highchair - but too small for an adult chair that the Tripp Trapp® really comes into it's own.
Our dining table really is the hub of house and I don't think that would be the case if the children weren't comfortable whilst sitting there. I always sit on one myself - if there isn't a small child to fight with and I will continue to for years to come.
What a false economy it was for me when DinoBoy was born. I ended spending twice as much on the first two chairs that have now been ditched somewhere along the way. But what of our nearly 9 year old Tripp Trapp®?
It's still going strong and has years full of life ahead of it. It really is a design classic that offers you great value for money.
I was very conservative back then and went for the natural colour. There are now 12 different colours in the range and and I wouldn't like to have to choose which one is my favorite. The grey maybe, or the new blue, but the green is pretty hot too - and the girls love the pink..... Oh decisions, decisions!
