You might remember seeing our pram from this post when we took Mabli out for the first time to our local park at three weeks old. Wilf was so excited in his role of official pram pusher, it was so sweet to see his little face as he reached up to the handle and stomped along in the rain with it.
It was actually our first real outing as I'd been trying to recover at home and rest and relax over the Christmas period so I wanted to wait a few weeks and spend a bit more time with the pram before posting a review. If you've not heard of these designs they are the Wonder by Cosatto and come in three different patterns, the Hepburn (which we have) the Bon Bon and the Kew. They have only created 500 in each pattern so are limited edition designs launched at the start of this year.
The first thing I should say about this pram is it's quite honestly the most beautiful pram I've ever seen. You literally cannot walk down the street without people commenting on how it looks or asking questions about it. Much to Tom's amusement I think as he doesn't get quite so excited about pram designs ;)
I really love the retro design and the scandinavian feel to it. In fact during our recent visit to Copenhagen we saw lots of these types of pram (although not in quite so nice patterns) and you would often see toddlers in them sitting up rather than moving onto seats like we do in this country.
Although we are only using the pram attachment at the moment it also comes with a car seat attachment and also a seat for when your child is a bit older (which can be fitted both forward facing and parent facing). So it is a full travel system, it also comes with:
Coordinating couture style bag with changing kit. Attachable to hanging points on the chassis handle.
Coordinating and fully adjustable lined parasol.
Cosy Toes lined with padded sumptuous knit for ultimate comfort - ribbed (Kew), bouclé (Hepburn), cable (Bonbon).
Chest & tummy pads for plush security.
Specially tailored raincover with each mode.
The pram is fixed wheel which does take a little getting used to but the suspension is really bouncy and so movement feels easy. Plus the baby loves being bounced in it to send her to sleep! We also tend to park it up in our dining room and place her in it whilst we are eating dinner, she loves the black and white patterns on the inside of the hood which was an added bonus!
The only thing I would say we have struggled with is public transport and fitting ourselves into small cafes. Where we live the coffee shops tend to be quite tiny and lacking much space so there are ones we've had to avoid do to the size of this model. Equally city living and public transport is made a bit trickier, as we don't drive we do rely heavily on both the inner city train and the local buses and so if they are busy it's meant we haven't been able to get the pram onto them which has been tricky. We've tended to decide whether we'll use the sling or the pram depending on what we have planned that day.
This is the third Cosatto model we've tried out and we've loved working with the brand, their designs and patterns are always so fun and unique. You can see our Ooba review (which we loved!) here and our Giggle review here.
You can also see my pregnancy diary written on their blog here if you fancy it!
