On April 7, 2022, Stokke brand recalled a trendy highchair style called the Stokke Clikk (White) due to hazards associated with the chair. According to the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) “The white plastic seat can break, posing fall and injury hazards to children.” Hundreds of defective Clikk High Chairs were sold in the United States and Canada prior to the recall.
This incident, once again shows that baby product manufacturers place profits over safety. The design of the Stokke Clikk design was inherently dangerous because of its material and structure, yet it was placed on the market despite its danger.
Stokke was made famous by its Tripp Trapp high chair, which is as known for being as esthetically pleasing as it is durable and practical. The Clikk High Chair was an attempt at a less expensive model. At $179.00 the Clikk is significantly less expensive than the Tripp Trapp, but the price difference, in the end, displayed a lack of consideration for the safety and durability of the product.
