Does anyone have one and rate it? I've got an awkward dining table that has a wooden trim/skirt below the table top and I'm struggling to find any high hairs that will allow me to push Isaac underneath (with or without a tray) If I take some photos and a couple of measurements would anyone be able to tell me if I can make it work?
My other alternative is getting an Antelop highchair and getting H to cut the legs down!

Yes we have one, well actually 2 now as Zoe is still using hers at almost 5 yrs old so we needed a second one for Orla. We also have the funny skirt / trim thing under the table and it has never been a problem - well apart from when Zoe grows and I've forgotten to adjust it so ram her knees in to the table, but that only happened once or twice ;-)
I honestly can't see how it wouldn't work because you simply adjust the seat height to suit the table height and then the footrest for the child.

Thanks JB I had a feeling you had one (well now two) I'm guessing you think they're well worth the money then? I've seen a couple of imitations during my research, would you go stokke for the guaranteed quality? And what about the tray you can get, useful when they're babies or a waste? Alternatively I'm now eying up the mountain buggy pod... But not sure about that.

I didn't look at the cheaper copies as I wanted the dark wood to match the table but it has definitely been worth the money. Yes, they are expensive but what other high chair will still be getting daily use at 5+ years old. It is great now for Zoe doing her homework as it means she can sit properly at the table rather than being up on her knees etc.
We did get the plastic tray that can attach on it (playtray, but isn't sold by stokke themselves) and while it had a limited time when it was useful it definitely was. Mainly when Zoe reached a point where she was refusing to eat it meant I was able to pop her in front on the TV which distracted her enough and she would then just happily eat away although meals did take longer. I would say it isn't essential but worth bookmarking the site for if you decide it would be useful.
I have seen this one and if I didn't already have a tripp trapp could have been tempted by this, although I am not sure it woudl fit as neatly out of the way (the TT tucks under the table almost completely)
