I recently had the pleasure of attending the launch of Stokke’s first European standalone store. I’ve always lusted after their prams (hello middle age) and made my first Stokke purchase when we bought the Tripp Trapp. The Scandi brand are infamous for their well designed, well crafted products which stand the test of time. Yes, they may be towards the higher end of the price range but they’re designed to have flexibility meaning that they grow with your child.
Of course most people are likely to have discovered their highchairs (they’re the best you can buy in my opinion), but it wasn’t until I walked in to their store that I discovered they sell so many other things. Take for example their Flexi Bath! The concept is genius, not only folding flat for easy storage but making it perfect for travel (no more washing Bells in tiny sinks, poor love!).
It was great to try the products first hand allowing us to get a proper feel for them. We recently purchased the Newborn Set for the Tripp Trapp which has been invaluable with a toddler in the house (what is it with pokey fingers?!?) so we’re thinking of getting another Tripp Trapp for Bells as it would be even more perfect now that she’s becoming an independent lady… cue Beyoncé. Also on my wish list are their MyCarrier (Millie wants be held constantly so I’m hoping it will free my hands) and Sleepi which is a cot which cleverly transitions into a bed. I guess my bank manager will be hearing from me!
For now, Bells is obsessed with the bath toys that they kindly gave to her. Bathtime has become considerably longer and the floor considerably wetter but it’s worth it when you see how happy she is .
Massive thanks to the Stokke team, it was lovely to see you all… and of course any excuse to visit Westfields is a good one for me. If you fancy checking it out for yourself, it’s in the newest wing (just opened) if Westfields White City, London.
