For months when we had our youngest in a traditional high chair, she would stare jealously during meal times over at her older brother who we had ensconced in a fun, new wooden adjustable high chair.
Soon brother wanted out into an adult seat (even if he needed to kneel to eat his food). But this opened up an opportunity for his sister and she’s seized the hot seat ever since.
So I understand the appeal of Stokke’s Tripp Trapp – the so-called "chair that grows with your child".
In theory, these well-designed and stylish kiddie seats can be adjusted to meet the needs of kids aged 6 months through to adulthood.
In reality, peer pressure will no doubt dictate that your Gastrokid wants to graduate to a "big person" seat sooner rather than later.
But that just means you’ll have a cool extra adult dining chair for all the family to use.
