What are the pros and cons of a Tripp Trapp high chair?

As with any baby-product review, you’ll need to consider the pros and cons before making a purchase or deciding to rent the Tripp Trapp:

Pros:

  • Design: The stand-out minimalist design of the Tripp Trapp high chair is a big part of its appeal. Aesthetically pleasing and simple enough to blend well into any home’s design scheme, it’s a piece of baby furniture you won’t mind having around.
  • Adjustability: The Tripp Trapp high chair’s depth- and height-adjustable seat and footplate make it easy to keep up with baby’s changing needs. From day one (with the newborn seat accessory), you can have baby at table height with the rest of the family during mealtime, and, as your little one ages from newborn to baby to toddler, the chair adjusts to fit them accordingly.
  • Long-lasting: Because of the chair’s sturdy construction and durable materials plus its ability to grow with your child, you will get a lot of use out of your Tripp Trapp high chair.

Cons:

  • Cost: There’s no way around the fact that the Tripp Trapp high chair is pricey. Basic high chairs can be purchased for far less, and some parents do opt to go that route. 
  • Tray is hard to clean: Many of our parents have complained about how hard it is to clean the underside of the tray. It’s honeycomb design means lots of food gets stuck in the ridges and can be a pain to scrub off.
