We’ve been the proud owners of our Giggle New Wave 3-in-1 travel system from Cosatto for almost two weeks now. I’ve been incredibly impressed so far, and wanted to share my first impressions with you all! A full, detailed review, and perhaps even a vlog (yikes!), will be coming soon, but for now here’s what we think after 10 days.
To begin with, and probably most importantly, it was super easy to put together! I am not always the most technically minded (nor patient) of people, but I managed to put the Giggle New Wave together in 15 minutes with Toddler distractions. Everything fitted together perfectly and the instructions made sense, which is always a good thing!
I was immediately impressed with the design of the Giggle New Wave – I talked about it in this post here (when I announced that we were Brand Buddies) – but it really is even more gorgeous in the flesh metal. The bright, vibrant colours are so much fun, and it’s a super stylish chariot for Busby to ride around in.
We’re always stopped when we’re out and about; we’ve had so many positive comments about the design, as well as hardcore Cosatto fans asking where they can buy the Giggle New Wave! My favourite comment so far has been “She could rule the world in a pram like that!” and I rather agree with the chap!
The New Wave isn’t just about looking super stylish! It’s got to be practical too, and I feel like so far it really is. I love everything about the frame; from the “3 wheel” style to the beautiful seat, which looks crazy comfortable to snooze in.
The seat height is another favourite feature of mine (and Busby’s!); it’s higher than any other pushchair we’ve used previously, and Busby loves being able to see the world from up there.
Unfortunately, the weather has been pretty shocking since our Giggle New Wave has arrived; we’ve been caught in a number of heavy showers, but it has meant that we’ve definitely put the raincover to the test! I don’t drive, so a decent raincover is really important to me as you can’t really hide on public transport until a shower stops like you can in a car!
I’ve been really impressed with the size of the raincover – it gives the pushchair total coverage and Busby has been nice and dry in there… I wish Cosatto would make one to cover parents too (perhaps a decorative, funky zorbing ball?)! I really love that the raincover’s trimmings match the tweedesque print on the pushchair. Although the raincover is a fantastic size for the pushchair, it does mean that it takes up quite a large amount of space in the shopping basket, which is a downside. However, I’d rather have a raincover that works over shopping basket space!
The Giggle New Wave is really fantastic to manoeuvre! It’s a super smooth ride, and easy to move around with one hand if you’re in the supermarket with a basket, or a coffee, in the other hand. This would also be a great feature for families with more than one child (or a child that likes to get out of their pushchair frequently) as you can push with one hand, and hold a little hand with the other, without the pushchair getting stuck. We walked all the way to the Post Office from our house like this the other day, which is not something I would have attempted previously!
We’ve fallen in love with the Cosatto Giggle New Wave, and are looking forward to our relationship blossoming over the coming weeks! If you’ve also fallen head over heels, you can buy the Giggle New Wave 3-in-1 Travel System on the Cosatto website.
