Cosatto Ooba Duck Egg Travel System - Initial Thoughts


A few weeks back I was privileged to be invited to the Cosatto SS15 Press Event at their HQ in Bolton (you can tea about my day here). Being a mummy to be, I was excited to have a sneak peek at their new designs as ranges and it was great to test out and have a go at the pushchairs before I decided on which one I wanted for bump. 

After much thought, and loads of deliberation, I just had to go for the Cosatto Ooba in Duck Egg. I mean, it just oozes style and prettiness, whilst being sturdy and so practical. 

The Cosatto Ooba is the cream of the crop when it comes to luxury pushchairs, and being a Cosatto, it means that it comes with everything you need for a pushchair and more. With a rain cover for each of the seat, carrycot and car seat units, footmuff and a coordinating changing bag, you literally are, ready to go with the Cosatto Ooba.


Ooba’s compact folding lightweight chassis and the 2-way multi-height handle means that using this pram is super easy and simple. The brake is on the handle so is easy to click on and off without having to search for it with your feet. Even the wheels are easy to clean as they are quick-release and so can be taken off for cleaning, as can the carrycot liner. It has a luxury leatherette fabric and exquisite tailoring which stands out from the crowd too.

I love the chassis of the pram. It is huge and sturdy, so durable and I know that my baby will be safe in the care of it. 
It's a bit bigger than other prams too which is great for my husband who usually struggles when it comes to pushing prams. He has a bad back and so cannot lean forward to push small prams. The fact that the handle on the Ooba rises so high means that he won't have a problem with pushing it.

I adore the Duck Egg design. The colour is boyish but still unisex enough to be suitable for a girl too. The leatherette fabric just gives it that elegant edge and the patterned inner ouzes style. 





So far I cannot fault the Cosatto Ooba Duck Egg Travel System. Not only does it come with everything you will need for travelling in style, but it is so robust and durable that I am putting my full trust in it to protect my baby whilst we are out in the big wide world. 

I cannot wait to push little bubs in this and show it off to the world and will be back in a few weeks with an update as to how we are getting on with using the pram and our overall opinion on it.
