The clear difference are customer preferences, features and accessories. Both highchairs encourage the family to sit together from birth. The clear differences are in features and accessories.
The Tripp Trapp® is a high chair that grows with the child, from birth to adulthood. The ergonomic design allowing the child to sit comfortably with the foot plate.
The Steps™ is an All-in-One seating system, that starts with a bouncer which can be used from birth, transcending into a Baby Set with a tray to a high chair that can be used until 10 years of age.
There are several advantages to the current Tripp Trapp® Baby Set made from recyclable plastic over the previous wooden design:
The current ® Baby Set is compatible with all Tripp Trapp® chairs produced after June 2006. Anything prior to that date is considered an older model (Kinderseat) which we no longer manufacture and are not compatible with any of our current accessories. This corresponds to serial numbers starting with 3 or higher. The serial number and production date are printed on the bottom of the right side leg.
If you are unable to make out this information on your Tripp Trapp® chair, you can also measure the gap between the two back rest pieces: prior to June 2006, this measured approx. 2.5 cm, while on chairs since June 2006 it is approx. 3.5 cm. Chairs produced before June 2006 are not compatible with the current ® Baby Set. Earlier models of the Baby Set, with wooden rail, are unfortunately no longer available.
For GS Mark (Tested Safety) certification, the Tripp Trapp® chair was tested according to various standards.
One of these is a standard called DIN 68 878, which is a quality norm for adult chairs.
This standard involves a dynamic test where 110 kg/ 242.5 lbs is placed on the seat, which is then tilted backwards 6000 times.
The Tripp Trapp® chair passes all the tests in that standard, which means a load of up to 110 kg/ 242.5 lbs can be safely placed on the chair.
