At some point, every parent will own a stroller, carrier, and a high chair. Instead of just choosing your standard, functional baby gear, how about selecting products that also allow you to bond with your baby. Stokke®, a Norwegian company, designs premium, technologically advanced products for different stages of your child’s life that promote bonding and healthy development. That means products such as its game-changing high, parent-facing stroller that brings your baby closer to you, and ergonomic adjustable high chairs so your little one can join the family for mealtime at the table.
Stokke® will be at the 2017 Chicago Baby Show, on August 26 and 27, at Navy Pier, when the nation’s largest show for expectant and new families comes to Chicagoland. A family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler – from top products to trusted parenting experts – the Chicago Baby Show will welcome thousands of expectant and new parents from Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and beyond!
Tickets to the Chicago Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with a member of the Stokke® team, Allie Carvalho, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the Chicago Baby Show.
For someone unfamiliar with Stokke®, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Stokke® is an innovative Norwegian company offering a complete collection of premium products for children that reflect Scandinavian design at its best. Stokke®’s products promote bonding between parent and child and ensure healthy development for young children. For over eighty years, Stokke® has combined its love for design with the latest technology to make beautiful, thoughtfully designed products that not only grow with your family but bring you and your baby closer.
Tell us about Stokke®. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Founded in Ålesund Norway in 1932, Stokke® began as a manufacturer of high-quality furniture. The iconic Tripp Trapp® Chair was its first product for children, which launched in 1972. Since 2006, Stokke® has focused exclusively on designing premium children’s furniture and equipment within the highchair, stroller, baby carrier, home textiles, and nursery segments.
What are the most popular and newest products from Stokke®?
Stokke® is best known for its iconic Tripp Trapp chair, Xplory stroller, and Sleepi crib. Stokke® recently debuted the Xplory Black, which is its signature Xplory with an all-black chassis. Other new launches include new textiles and wooden leg colors for the Stokke® Steps System and the new Stokke® Scoot stroller configuration.
What sets Stokke® apart in the baby marketplace?
Stokke’s values remain deeply rooted in its Scandinavian heritage and commitment to craftsmanship and quality.
Stokke® revolutionized the stroller category with the launch of the Stokke® Xplory®: introducing the concept of higher, parent-facing seating to the industry. The first stroller of its kind, Stokke® Xplory® was a true game changer. The unique height-adjustability is designed to bring your baby close. Today, it is Stokke’s signature stroller.
The ingenious Tripp Trapp® Chair created by Norwegian designer Peter Opsvik did something completely new; it gave children an ergonomic seat of their own, one that would grow with them. This made it possible for children to comfortably join their family at the table for connection and bonding. Its timeless design remains as relevant and innovative today as it was over forty years ago.
What can parents expect from Stokke® at the Chicago Baby Show?
Parents can expect to experience a brand that offers their families an array of long-lasting, premium made products specifically designed to promote the parent-child connection.
