Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair with a Cheap Trofast Storage Hack

Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair

Materials: Trofast Storage Box

It has been a bit of a losing struggle trying to stay on top of the new found clutter when our home welcomed our first child, Michael. He recently started sitting at the table with us and eating solids, and we soon found that our table was constantly occupied with toys, bibs, and other randomness. I was originally planning to install some simple rails for a Trofast storage box that I had lying around, but soon realized that it was a perfect fit for the pre-slotted rails in the chair. There are larger capacity Trofast boxes, but I think it could possibly flex out of the rails if they are overloaded. You can also purchase the additional finger hole lids to keep spills out of the boxes.

The Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair, while expensive as a new purchase, is quite affordable second hand and maintains its resale once your children outgrow it. It is also made from beech wood without much plastic which means that this is begging for more Ikea Hacks! You can have more fun with these chairs by color matching/contrasting the assortment of Trofast colors to the Stokke’s colors.

    This worked very well on our old tripptrapp (pre 2003), but not on the newer one.

    This hack did not work for me :-(
    The boxes are slightly too small and fall out of the ggrooves.

    This hack does not realy work on our Tripp Trapp. The box is slightly to small. I fixed it with some duct tape.
    Perhaps Ikea or Stokke changed dimensions.

    This is genius, I do have both a Stokke chair and a Trofast box!
