What is a "Trip Trap Stuhle"?????

Sorry for this really dumb sounding question, but if anyone has an idea what it is, will be much appreciated, as we asked what sort of present the parents wanted for their child`s christening event, and this is what was presented to us.

Try Ricardo - they have some for sale occasionally, although they still go for a high price, even second-hand.

It's a baby/infant chair.

Stokke is the brand and Trip Trap is the product within their range (if my own baby induced sleep deprived memory serves me correctly).

Apparently, very popular. All I can say is that it's a lucky baby if someone's buying that for them. From the tone of your post, I'm reading that you're not the parents of the aforementioned baby. They're not cheap. Mind you, neither are the chairs

Realizing again I am in Switzerland, would never have dared to ask even my family to buy me such an expensive gift.

Re: What is a "Trip Trap Stuhle"?????

They are fantastic chairs for kids - there is something about kids sitting at the dining table with their parents, rather than being sat in a plastic thing with a plastic tray . And the kids use it for a long time - my son just turned 6, and is still using his (we bought it when he was 6 months old).

You can get them cheaper on Ricardo, or even here on EF. I bought a second-hand Tripp Trapp for my little boy, from an EF guy for 100 Fr.

But if your budget is nowhere near that amount, then buy the noisiest toy you can find - that will teach the parents for making such "demands"

Re: What is a "Trip Trap Stuhle"?????

@smoky
a friend recently told me that when her children were small, she bought a no-name brand immitation Trip-Trap, and that someone else had given the family a used original one. She said the no-name was, in fact, much better.

The selling point of this concept is that the various levels of wood (the rungs of the ladder, as it were) can be combined to give a varying height seat as the baby grows and this item can be used for several years, i.e. for small children, too.

You might like to compare the functionality of the original and, for example, http://www.toysrus.ch/family/index.j...eEnabled=false

Funnily enough, I joked with my OH today that he needs to ask for a pay rise! I did not budget for birthday gifts for neighbours and kinski friends .

Re: What is a "Trip Trap Stuhle"?????

My guess is they want to buy a Tripp Trapp for their baby and would appreciate cash as a present to spend towards this chair.

Re: What is a "Trip Trap Stuhle"?????

tripp trapp chairs also come in a range of colours so I assume they want to choose it themselves.

I am a big fan of these chairs. We purchased one second-hand when we arrived in Switzerland and it is still used every day... Our son is now 7.5 years old...and I use it when I use my sewing machine and it's excellent... i think they are 'rated' to 120kg or something.... Not just a 'highchair'....that, and the one I have is beechwood colour and matches the rest of our dining room chairs...
