Re: Stokke Tripp Trapp
I love our Stokkes (all 3 of them) and our learning tower. Those and our BOB stroller are the only overpriced baby items we own that I consider worth every single penny. My 8 year old still loves her Stokke.
I would probably go with the learning tower for a kid who doesn't want to sit. I think there is a smaller version that folds up. If you or someone in your family is handy you can make one.
