You will have to forgive the number of baby related posts that I have been writing and will continue to write for the foreseeable future. I have babies and baby products on the brain constantly!
A couple of weeks ago I made a trip up to the RDS to the Pregnancy and Baby Fair. The fair was packed with all sorts of baby paraphernalia, from swish designer nappy bags to baby clothes made from eucalyptus! My favourite and most coveted baby item on show was the Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair. In fact I fell in love with everything in the Stokke display.
We have a small house with very little storage, so when choosing baby products they need to blend in with our decor because they will be in view rather than stored away. As mentioned in previous posts, I tend to like everything in our house to match or work well together. Unfortunately baby products in general can be quite ugly in design with lots of yucky plastic parts and garish colours. So I was delighted to finally find products that are nicely designed, practical and made from good quality materials.
The Tripp Trapp is available in lots of different colours and with a choice of accessories to compliment your colour choice. The most attractive feature of the Tripp Trapp is that unlike other baby products, it grows with your baby, no need to put it in the attic after a few months. It can even be used by grown ups! It truly is a design classic and has been around since 1972, this year marks the 40th anniversary of this clever design.
On the Stokke website you can customise your Tripp Trapp by picking the chair colour and coordinating cushions etc. This is the version that would fit wonderfully in our kitchen…
So now that I know they are out there hiding, I am on the hunt for other nicely designed baby bits and bobs, any suggestions?
