we're a bit tight on money this year so I looked on craiglist for a reasonablly priced tripp trapp. I made the mistake of not asking when the chair was purchased thinking all tripp trapps are the same (stupid me!!). I didn't realize this until I got the chair home that it was made in 2004 (I wish the seller told me this), which means it won't fit the stokke baby set. I know it's my fault for not doing enough research but I'm so sad. I called Stokke who told me the only option I have is to purchase a new back plate + 2 rails + harness, which will come to $120, which is what I paid for the chair :(
I just want to cry right now. I did this to save money but it ended up costing me more. To make the matter worse, I already bought the baby set on sale which can't be returned.
Does any one have an older version of the Tripp Trapp that can provide some insight on some modifications I can do so I don't need to buy another highchair for my baby before she hits 18months? and to all the moms looking to buy a tripp trapp on craigslist to save a buck, make sure the chair is made after 2006! I just ruined my Christmas :(
