There’s nothing we love more then a well made quality travel system, so when first taking a look at the Cosatto Ooba we knew it was going to be fabulous. It comes with everything ranging from a changing bag to car seat adaptors; it’s great if you’re looking to find everything you want in one package.
Available in a variety of gorgeous colours a prints, the fabrics are covered in leatherette material so you can both feel and see the quality. With each colour having it’s own personally print on the inside the Ooba really is built to be different and we love it!
The great thing about Cosatto is that they bundle everything you’ll need to get going in one package. The Cosatto Ooba is no different and includes:
There is an under seat storage basket also included which is easily accessible from all sides of the chassis, no matter what unit you have attached and also a mesh pocket on the back of the seat unit for extra storage space. A 4 year free guarantee also comes with any Cosatto product when registered within 28 days in the UK and Ireland, which is more than any other brand we’ve seen!
Suitable from birth (and for occasional overnight sleeping), the carrycot easily attaches on and off of the Ooba chassis. The UPF 50+ sun canopy which covers the carrycot can be either taken down or left up, depending if you’re child needs shade or not. The apron which covers the carrycot is easily removed and covered in leatherette material so is very sturdy and stylish.
There is a carry handle located on the top of the hood which comes is great for when manoeuvring the carrycot on and off the chassis. The lie-flat bed is perfect for newborns and the inside liner is washable for any mishaps. We love the fact that this buggy is suitable from birth with the option of removing the carrycot to not wake baby when returning home. Everything is zip on and off so it’s extremely easy to make sure that every part is on securely.
The seat unit is suitable from the ages of 6 months upwards, and holds up to 15kg (approximately the average weight of a 3 year old). There is an easy one-handed 4 position recline, and the calf support is also adjustable if you need to put it up when the child is sleeping. The seat can be interchanged between either rear or forward-facing, depending on what you prefer; or even better the handle bars can be flipped over (duo-directional) so you don’t even have to move the seat unit!
The 5-point safety harness is well padded and has height adjustable shoulder straps, so greatly accommodates for both the lower and higher aged child. The bumper bar is removable, so is good for getting your child in or out easily. The UPF 50+ sun canopy on the seat unit has toy loops built into it so you’re child can never get bored.
The lightweight aluminium chassis has all-round suspension which gives a smoother ride, over everyday terrain. There is the option (which we love) of being able to “flip” the handle bars over therefore reversing which wheels are at the front; enabling tougher ground to be tackled more easily.
The handlebar itself is covered in more leatherette material and gave no signs of wearing down any time soon, this handle bar was built to provide comfort and to last. We love it as it didn’t give any of the usual aches and pains when on longer walks.
The front wheels are lockable-swivel wheels, so are great for when going on longer walks. The brake is located on the adjustable handle bar (ranging from 38 – 42 inches), in which is a simple lever that you pull up to stop the buggy.
The fold is a two step operation, in which whatever seat or carrycot unit you have on the chassis has to firstly be removed. Once removed, with the taking down of the handle bars and the pull up of a strap the chassis folds in your hand.
It has a standing folded position it is ideal for storing it away.
The Cosatto Hold 0+ Car Seat has an adjustable sun canopy, 5-point harness, fits both front and rear vehicle seats and comes with a free head-hugger, raincover, tummy and chest pads. The great thing about this car seat range is the fact that they are available in lots of colours/patterns. If you’re wanting a matching car seat then you can, or you can get one in a completely different colour that can still attach to the Ooba chassis. With the car seat either the Belted or ISOfix Car Seat Base will be needed when putting the car seat into a vehicle.
