These chairs are awesome!
September 25, 2013
I wasn't certain that these chairs would be as big of a help to us as they have been. I just knew that we had to try something and after reading tons of reviews, it seemed that these would be our best option.
We are using our two Tripp Trapp chairs for homeschool and at the dinner table. Eventually, we'll get two more so we don't have to take them back and forth. My oldest child (almost 6 years old and very tall) was always wiggling around in her chair at the dinner table and then getting up on her knees because she was sitting too low. Our middle daughter (4 years old and pretty tall also) was still having to use a booster seat at the table and felt like a baby because she couldn't manage to sit in a regular chair without the booster. We would spend a good portion of dinner getting our oldest to sit back down on her bottom or sit still (she tended to spill a lot of drinks and food). The Tripp Trapp chair has been so helpful. She is the perfect height at the table now and because her feet have somewhere to rest she doesn't try folding them up under her anymore. It's also really nice that both of the girls can get in and out of their chairs on their own. No more booster seat for our middle child either, which she LOVES! Dinner times are much more enjoyable now and they both love being at the right height to the table surface.
For homeschool they have been great, as well. Handwriting can be really hard to do at a normal table height for children and these chairs enable them to sit with proper posture, which has alleviated strain and frustration.
I've even thought of getting one for myself since I'm a shorter adult and my feet usually end up swinging instead of sitting flat on the floor.
Overall, we are really thrilled with ours and intend to keep them for a LONG time. Of course, getting them at such an awesome sale price made the decision even easier. :) THANK YOU, STOKKE!
