Our Weekend In Pictures + Cosatto Giggle Review (Moonwood) – John Lewis Exclusive


A super image heavy 'our weekend in pictures' this week so do click below to read what we got up to!




We had a very chilled out Sunday which involved a short stroll to one of our favourite local breakfast spots. I love our neighbourhood, it might not be the prettiest and in fact we had to skip one of the small parks we were walking too because (as we explained to Wilf) a man was feeling poorly in it (read necking 20/20 at 10am in the morning) but actually I think you can find beauty in most places. I'm always on the look out for exposed brick, brightly coloured doors and a good 'ol bicycle shot. Thankfully our neighbourhood has that in the bucket load...

We were sent the Cosatto Moonwood Giggle as part of our ambassador program with them to test out. As you may know we already have the Ooba and love it so I was interested in seeing what the Giggle would be like.

As always I'm a big fan of Cosatto's designs and they surely win the prize for the brightest and funkiest pushchairs on the market. Did I just say 'funkiest'? I think it's safe to say I'm a mum if I'm using words like that right? ;) Aaanyway..the Giggle arrived last week and we've tried it out on a few occasions now.

First impressions are it's a very light pushchair and super easy to fold down, something we don't have to do a huge amount as we don't drive but good to know in times when we have to on occasion (busy bus etc). I really panicked with folding down the first pushchair I owned and would usually just wait for another bus or train rather than try and work it out so it's certainly a big selling point to find one that is so easy to pack away.

Another feature which is really important to me is that pushchairs are able to be parent facing. I love that Cosatto really keeps this in mind and the Giggle do this with ease which is brilliant.

The Giggle is one of the most light weight pushchairs I've tested which is brilliant but I occasionally found the going up and down curbs a little tricky and one you have to make sure you are facing properly before you push over them (if that makes any sense!).

Cosatto do really make brilliant pushchairs and the Giggle is a travel system too so comes with pram attachment that can be used from birth. The Giggle is available in a bunch of different patterns although the Moonwood we are testing here is exclusive to John Lewis. The Giggle has also won the best travel system for under £500.

The Moonwood Giggle is a John Lewis Exclusive and is available with a Car Seat and choice of Isofix Base or Hold Base (Car Seat and Base sold separately). The Giggle includes co-ordinating Changing Bag, Cosy Toes and Raincover.

The fox outfit Wilf is wearing is from Wild Things Dresses*. You may remember I bought him the shark outfit a few weeks back and they saw my pictures and were kind enough to send him this fox as a gift! It was even more lovely that I mentioned Wilf's middle name (Cadno meaning fox in Welsh) and the package was addressed to Master Cadno :)

My dress is from Eucalyptus (a gift from Tom) and my Jellies are from JuJu.

Hope you had the loveliest of weekends too..oh and did I mention, we got engaged on Friday! I'm be sure to share details with you soon! ;) xx

When you say ' quirky' that's when you will know it's all over ;) Wilf looks so big all of a sudden.

Michelle Ordever said...

Love Wilf's outfit and yellow really suits you! Such a summery outfit! x

Jen Walshaw said...

I adore W's outfit. I want one to fit me. I think that parent facing is really important and when the boys were smaller it was really hard to find anything parent facing. I am glad that things have improved

I like the Art Smocks

Ness said...

I like a pushchairs you can turn both ways. My son used to like to see both me and my daughter on the way to school but liked being turned around when we went to the shops (for grabbing things purposes!)

kathrynsharman said...

I think your neighbourhood looks really cheery and something about your dress that makes it feel almost like the photos were taken in the sixties, except with a really modern pushchair (I nearly wrote 'wacky' then - there's no hope for me).

LOVE that fox outfit! Pushchair looks cool, but those days are behind me now, still occasionally use my umbrella one for long walks, but Syd is 3 soon so that will become less and less over the next few months.

I have always been a fan of areas that are not perfect, that have interesting people and a creative and mixed outlook - they are so much more interesting that the more expensive parts of town. Love all of these photos and how stylish is that Cosatto giggle - on my must have list if we have another one :)
