Stokke Steps Bouncer + Stokke Steps Chair = Stokke Steps
Our unique modular seating system adapts to your child, step by step. For your newborn, baby, toddler and youngster, Stokke® Steps™ is a comfortable, practical and functional way to give your child the perfect seat from day one. Scandinavian design and engineering ensures optimal ergonomics as well as quality and style.
Stokke Steps Bouncer
The Stokke Steps Bouncer offers baby a soft, cushioned seat with a supportive and soothing cradling motion. The newborn insert hugs baby, which makes her feel like she’s still in your arms – for the times when she can’t be. You’ll have to shower at some point and with the Stokke Steps Bouncer placed on the Stokke Steps Chair; you can bring your baby to the family table and be together when it’s most important.
We tested out the Steps Bouncer, with Quinn, with and without the infant insert and found it to be useable even with an older infant. In fact, he enjoyed the extra support and “hug” that the insert provides while he played along side me in the office. Because Quinn is older, he’s able to use his own body movements to bounce the seat – this discovery promotes strength and development by teaching him it’s possible to entertain himself. For added entertainment, visual stimulation and increased sensory stimulation, the detachable toy bar dangles any toy of your choice within reach of your child. Because the toy bar is flexible, it allows for baby (especially older babies) to discover cause and effect – when he pulls a toy to his mouth, it actually reaches his mouth!
While we found the newborn insert to be versatile and large enough to use with an older infant, there’s more to it than it just being an extra hug for baby.
The newborn insert has been developed together with Children`s Pediatric Physiotherapist Vibeke Smith Aulie to ensure that your newborn baby will be properly supported when placed in the Bouncer. When babies are young, their spines are still soft and developing. This means that until your baby is a bit older and stronger, their young spines should be stabilized while maintaining their slightly curved newborn posture while they relax. Use the newborn insert from birth to approximately 4 months to secure optimal ergonomic support for your newborn.
With 4 different seating positions, the Stokke Steps Bouncer grows with your child. By simply twisting the turnbuckle located under the seat, you can adjust the position of the Bouncer to better accommodate your child´s increasing weight.
Stokke Steps Chair
The Stokke Steps Chair is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Never mind that it’s esthetically pleasing to the eye – and your home decor – it comes with a wide range of accessories to enable it to transform and grow with your child.
The Baby Set attaches easily to the Stokke Steps Chair. It also detaches easily, making the chair versatile enough to use it with different children. We often have family and friends over for dinners and have to rearrange seating options. While we are able to use the Stokke Tripp Trapp (without the Tripp Trapp Baby Set attached) for anyone at a moments notice, the Stokke Steps Chair can literally be used for anyone in a matter of second. The Baby Set chair back has two positions to accommodate young children at different ages or sizes. When the Baby Set is removed (which takes one step), the system becomes a chair that can be used against the family table for an older child. The footrest easily adjusts up and down the frame with a twist of two knobs – one on each side.
With the simple addition of Stokke® Steps™ Baby Set, the Stokke® Steps™ Chair transforms into a highchair which can be used from about 6 months. Safe and comfortable, the ergonomically designed Baby Set ensures that your baby is seated correctly. Stokke Steps Baby Set Tray can be used together with the Baby Set.
Every surface on the Stokke Steps Chair is easy to clean. The tray accessory is a must for older infants in my opinion. The tray itself is large enough for playtime, mealtime and parent-child interaction before or after meals. It’s simple to remove – I’ve now mastered removing the tray with one hand, while holding Quinn on my hip.
The Stokke® Steps™ Baby Set Tray fits on the Baby Set. It simply slides onto the Baby Set rail for a no mess dinnertime or a personal play surface. The optional tray gives your baby a place of their own to eat, play and be independent. By removing the tray, your baby can be brought right to the table for fun with the rest of the family. The easy-wipe surface makes it a dream to clean.
The bouncer and highchair combination – made for each other, made for your growing child!
