Last week we were invited to our local Kiddicare store for an afternoon of tea and treats with Stokke as they unveiled their latest new product, the Stokke Steps Chair.
After introductions from the lovely Jennie from Kiddicare, we were given a full demo of the all-in-one seating system, the Stokke Steps Chair. The chair can be adapted to use from birth right up until the teenage years. For newborns, the additional Steps Bouncer can be used to bring the little ones to the table so that the family can dine together from an early age. I really love this as we would have loved to have had Little Mr at the dining table with us when he was a nipper. Instead we put him in a bouncer on the floor but I always felt cruel for doing that and not having him up with us.
Chris had a very helpful assistant!
The chair can then be adapted for toddlers with the Steps Baby Set which lets toddlers sit supported and upright in the chair. There are two widths you can use so the chair will literally grow with the child and the 5 point harness makes it a real safe seat to use. Little Mr used the Steps Baby Set as he ate his lunch in the Kiddicare cafe and he appeared to be very comfortable.
Once the toddler gets big enough to sit unaided in the Steps chair, the Baby set can be removed and the chair can be used with an adjustable leg rest to suit the height of the child. The bouncer and cushion are both made with water repellent material which we saw in action, the water literally ran off the material, making it perfect for weaning and for when making the transition from beaker to cup. There’s also a tray that easily fits horizontally onto the Steps chair and is wipe clean.
Little Mr spent a good hour sitting in the Stokke Steps Chair eating his lunch. It was really easy to use and very easy to clean up afterwards. I liked how safe he looked in it and was impressed with how he could sit in it with the tray on to eat his lunch or to play on.
The Stokke Steps Chair would be ideal for those with newborns who are looking to buy a single highchair that can be adapted for the first ten years of their life. Initially the price of the set may deter people but if you consider how much use a highchair gets and how often you sit down as a family to eat, it really is a good investment. We had a great afternoon with both the Kiddicare and Stokke team and loved the new Stokke Steps Chair.

We finished off our afternoon tea with a slice of cake and a diet coke (a balanced diet?!) and Little Mr enjoyed a crawl about in the play area. No trip to Kiddicare is complete without perusing and purchasing from the Nutmeg clothes section and the Summer collection for boys is mega cool! Thanks for the invite Kiddicare, we had fun and the cake was delicious.
