A special thanks to Eleanora's great Aunts and Uncles and Chris' cousins who gifted us many things, including our Stokke Tripp Trapp. We have adored it from the moment we read about its concept. In fact, we first discovered Stokke as a brand when looking for a travel system and then, well, kind of lost the ability to buy products from any other brand. This, however, is no negative thing, except that it will appear as if we put no thought into our purchases and simply looked for a label. Au contraire... We just love Stokke. In fact, I could be a Stokke saleswoman by now because we are so bought into their vision and calculated engineering. For me, I love their ability to make practical objects emotionally capturing. Chris? Well, at 6ft 5, he is simply won over by the fact that their products are made with average to taller people in mind, having baby at your height for greater communication with them and to save you from bending over so much during the day!
Stokke is a Norwegian company who now specialise in baby products from strollers to nursery furniture and home textiles. Their basic concept is to enhance the bond between baby and parent, child and caregiver. I hesitate to write too much on this at the risk of sounding cheesy and ruining their beautiful thoughts so please refer to http://www.stokke.com and read or watch their videos to learn more.
For now, I wanted to share a few snaps of little E enjoying and discovering safely seated in her Tripp Trapp Newborn Set. The great thing about this for us is that she is waist level with me and can watch everything going on whilst I cook dinner, wash dishes and potter about the kitchen, rather than being near the floor in some seat or bouncer where no only would she be much further from eye contact, she'd be right in our dog Jozy's loveable licking zone.
(We are excited to change in the next month or so to the full Tripp Trapp high chair and remove the Newborn Set. )
