A sea of snowflakes and slush didn’t stop bloggers and editors from venturing out to Gary’s Loft in New York City for an exclusive preview of Stokke’s latest innovation, the Stokke Steps, at a debut party hosted by Momtrends.

This all-in-one modular seating system, suitable from birth to approximately age ten, consists of several pieces that can be purchased separately to fit the growing needs of a child. The new Stokke Steps builds upon the same “grow with child philosophy” made famous by the Tripp Trapp, with a unique ability to bring baby to the family table from day one.
I had a chance to speak with Charlotte Addison, of Stokke, about the modular seating solution’s multifunctional components. The Bouncer (suitable from birth to 20 pounds) provides a gentle movement specifically designed to mimic the cradle of a parent’s arms. The seat provides multiple seating positions, a detachable toy hanger and a simple flat fold. It also securely brings baby to the table when attached to the Stokke Steps Chair.
The chair itself (available in beechwood or walnut) is a comfortable, ergonomic seat designed to accommodate the growing child. The curved backrest provides support and sideways protection, and the easy-to-adjust footrest allows the independent child to climb in and out of the chair on their own. The addition of the baby set transforms the Stokke Steps chair into a flexible highchair, suitable from six months, and the optional tray meets the needs of parents seeking a more traditional highchair with tray. Colorful cushions can also be added with the purchase of the baby cushion set if desired.
Although, the Stokke Steps is an investment, the pieces can be purchased on an as-needed basis, and some parents may not feel the need for all of the components. I personally love Stokke’s steadfast commitment to creating products specifically designed to strengthen the parent/child bond and outlast the baby/toddler years. Additionally, the stunning Scandinavian design of the Stokke Steps fits seamlessly into any home décor, and parents can rest assured that the Stokke brand provides their child with superior safety.
