Introducing the Cosatto ooba (Review)
As you probably all know, last week I received a very exciting delivery. Okay, not as exciting as my baby’s arrival (which has yet to happen)… but close! I am lucky enough to be trying out the brand new Cosatto ooba. Although I don’t have my little bundle to really put it through it’s paces yet, I know many of my readers are really interested in finding out a bit more so I’ve been busy today filming and getting to grips with how it works. Before you watch this though, please bare in mind that everything is at least a trillion times more difficult when you are heavily pregnant… and it was very windy so you might not be able to hear me in parts… WOO! Can you tell it’s my first “vlog”… that’s what the cool kids call it right? What I am trying to say is, be gentle on my little Manc self.
– Chassis, carrycot and seat unit
– Cosy Toes with reversible zip off liner
– Coordinating changing bag with changing mat and messy bag
– Patterned raincovers for pushchair seat and carrycot
– Spacious storage basket
– Hold car seat adaptors (Hold car seat sold separately)
– Hold – Group 0+ Infant Car Seat (comes with separate rain cover)
So what do I think so far?..
– The colours and prints are beyond any other pushchair I have seen before. I love Cosatto for their creativity and I applaud them for never shying away from making bold choices. I fell in love with the ooba as soon as I saw it, months ago over on Me, the Man & the baby’s blog and I have to say, it looks even better in real life than it does on even the highest res picture. There is something ooba special about it… I can imagine it will be turning heads this summer.
– The dual direction handle makes flipping between forward and rear facing an absolute doddle and I can see that coming in handy when changing between walks in the park and feeding time at the coffee shops. It means I can move the handle out of the way within just a few seconds.
– It’s not the lightest of pushchairs and can feel a bit cumbersome when assembling it into the different travel systems.
– Although I can see why some may like the fact the break button is activated using your hand, I find it a bit fiddly and prefer to have a foot break.
– Don’t get me wrong, I love the patterned rain covers but there is a different one to fit the seat unit, pram and the car seat. So, if you have the car seat too then that’s 3 different rain covers to carry with you and they do tend to take up a bit of room.
– The price. This one is debatable really as it is built to be a premium pushchair so the price reflects the materials that have been used to put it together and you can really see and feel the quality. The question is, would I pay £800 for it? and we personally couldn’t justify spending that amount in our current situation. But if you have the money and you are looking for a something with the ‘wow’ factor then this is definitely the pram for you!
