I know these are quite expensive items . I did quite a bit of research on both and they get the most fantastic reviews.. I love both my Stokke Xplory pram and tripp trapp high chair. First of all you will not come across many people in your town, village with one and you usually get alot of inquisitive looks. I love the fact that I am looking directly into my babies face and don't have to kill my back bending over the pram(i'm 5'11) tall. I bought the aditional footmuff and parasol just to show off to my friends. The tripp trapp is great because the missing crumbs and food debri that normally get trapped in the lining of traditional plastic seated highchairs is a constant battle to keep clean. With the tripp trap it looks minamist and is easy to clean and will adapt as your child grows.
