My child was sitting in a Stokke baby high chair eating, when he leaned forward and the high chair tipped over and he fell onto his face and had to be taken to the hospital. I've reported the incident to the manufacturer, but they don't seem to think it's an issue. I am an engineer and I can now see that the design has a flaw. The fulcrum is not far enough forward for robust usage, and can be easily avoided by installation of a very small foot extender. The company already ships foot extenders for the rear, since this apparently occurred backwards. They can just ship the same feet extenders forward as well.

Comment from Stokke LLC 1/10/2013
Stokke LLC takes product safety issues very seriously and thoroughly investigates any report made to us or the CPSC. In this instance, we have been in contact with the customer and, based on the information provided to date, have concluded that the reported incident was not the result of any defect in the Tripp Trapp® chair.

When used properly, the Tripp Trapp® chair is one of the safest chairs on the market - over 8 million have been sold worldwide since it was first launched in 1972 - and meets all applicable safety standards and regulations. The Tripp Trapp® chair has also passed all relevant and applicable safety tests performed by recognized testing institutions – including, but not limited to, the American standard for high chairs, ASTM F404-10 - and carries the seal of approval from JPMA.

CPSC does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or adequacy of the contents of the Publicly Available Consumer Product Safety Information Database on SaferProducts.gov, particularly with respect to information submitted by people outside of CPSC.
