How do the two models of the Stokke® Care™ Changing Table differ and do current accessories fit the earlier model?The Stokke® Care™ Changing Table was originally introduced in 2001, followed in 2009 by the release of the current model. There are a few noteworthy differences between the models. The previous model had caster wheels which are not present on the current model, but the latter was fitted with additional textile storage baskets. The size differs somewhat, with the new model being somewhat narrower than the original one. Accessories for the original model Care™ are no longer available. The current mattress and storage baskets can be used on the 2001 model, but please note they do not present a perfect fit, leaving space on either side due to the difference in dimensions between the two models.
