View Full Version : Kinderzeat - Stokke Tripp Trapp babybar question

11-10-2003, 03:02 PM
I have a European Kinderzeat. My friend is thinking about buying one too, but we are not sure if the American Kinderzeats can be equipped with the babybar.

I attached a picture of mine in case you don't know what I am talking about.

By the way, our cover is from IKEA (under $10) and fits well.

The american version is not compatible with the bar as it has not been approved under US safety standards. I believe that you would acutally have to order from Europe. Here is some information from a previous thread about how to order the tripp trapp vs the kinderzeat.

I cut and paste this from a reply from Rachel (britchick)

"Hi there,well i have the UK version of this chair and the US version.The website that we ordered from does ship to the US if you are interested.The website is http://www.lullabys.co.uk/index.htm?tripp_trapp They have the special for 135 pounds that includes the chair,baby set(high back and bar and a cushion)I would recommend ordering the harness too,as they arent available in the us.Now i dont think you have to pay VAT for out of the EU orders.You can email them and ask them .When i did they were very helpful.My mum was coming over from the UK last month and she ordered from them and brought it with her on the plane.So my 6 year old has the US version and 2 year old uses the UK version(without the front bar)then when my now 4 week old is bigger he will use the UK version with baby set and 2 year old can go into the US version.and 6 year old will be out of luck,i guess-lol..I ordered the blueberry color for both and the Blue/grey geometric cushion from the uk for the UK seat.If you would like a side by side comparison,email me and i will take some pics for you.HTH RAchel"

It can be ordered from Lullaby UK. The cost of a tripp trapp w/ baby set up is ~$250 total delivered and it only takes 5-6 business days!

If you do a search under the around the house forum for kinderzeat you will see quite a few threads.

Not that i am aware of however i bought mine in Canada and it's the tripp trapp model.... although mine has a leather crotch strap for the baby bar as opposed to the nylon one you appear to have..no matter.

I bought it from a store called Jensons in London Ontario Canada, dunno whether they ship to the us but their info should be found on the stokke site.

You can find it in the kids section (somewhere in the same place with Ikea's highchairs).

It also comes in a maroon color. I think it was $ 6.95 but I could be wrong. It was definitely cheaper than the Stokke.
