We’ve been the proud owners of the beautiful Cosatto Wish 2-in-1 Travel System for three months now, and have definitely put it through its paces! It’s been on and off trains, in and out of car boots, pushed across the sandy beach, and has walked for MILES.
We are huge fans of Cosatto, and I’ve been so excited to share this review with you all!

The pushchair is beautiful! Oh my goodness! The print is so vibrant! The system was relatively easy to put together – although would recommend doing so without little people trying to climb on your lap…
The Basket. The basket is definitely my favourite thing about this pushchair. It’s HUGE! It has been amazing when we’ve been out for the whole day as everything can fit inside it. Very useful for our trip to London and for our beach picnics in Whitby.
I also love that the basket has a zipped pocket at the front, which has been so handy for putting everything from little shoes to buggy board seats in! The only thing that would make the basket even better would be if the zipped pocket was insulated for keeping water bottles cool on hot days… or prosecco during our picnics…!
Aesthetically beautiful. I wouldn’t expect anything else from Cosatto really, but the pushchair is gorgeous. The colours and print are perfectly unisex too. I love how vibrant it is, and we get so many lovely comments every time we leave the house.
Lightweight. The pushchair is so lightweight! This has been so handy for getting on and off trains, and even getting in and out of the house is less of a hassle (we have a step up to our porch).
Compact fold. The chassis of the Wish is a very compact fold. This has been handy for our trips down to Sussex from Yorkshire, as it doesn’t take up huge amounts of space in the car. It’s also great for storage, and fits in our porch nicely.
Comfy. Now the seat has properly moulded into a sitting position (see Seat below for more details) H-Bear loves it! He’ll happily sit in it for shopping trips, and it’s also the only pushchair he will sleep in now! It does seem so comfortable for snoozing in as, when tilted into lying down mode, the seat is quite deep and bed-like.
Canopy. The pushchair canopy extends wonderfully, and is fantastic on sunny days/during naptime! It also has the added bonus of a little sun visor and has 50+ UPF protection.
2-in-1 system. The 2-in-1 system is a great idea as there’s no need for a carrycot, which means you don’t have to find somewhere to store a carrycot once baby grows out of it, OR if they’re a reflux baby like H-Bear and can’t lie on their back. The Port 0+ car seat is compatible with the Wish, and with the use of adaptors, can be attached to the chassis very easily.
Height adjustable. A big plus for me is the height adjustable feature where, with the touch of a button, baby can be slid up the chassis to be closer to you. This is fantastic for bigger babies too, as means they can see more out of the pushchair – H-Bear loves to be in the higher mode.
Brake. I love the colour indicators on the brake! It’s such a useful feature to have when you’re horrifically sleep deprived and can’t remember whether you’ve locked the pushchair…!
Cosytoes included. As with a lot of Cosatto pushchairs, the cosytoes is included! It’s fully reversible too, and coordinates beautifully with the pushchair.
Raincover. The raincover is fantastic and very easy to work out – even in a sudden downpour! It’s big enough to use with the canopy completely down too, which is a winner in my books! It has a zip so you can open to chat to your little person when it stops raining; meaning you don’t have to take the whole thing off and pop a soggy rain cover in the basket. The trim coordinates with the pushchair too; a lovely added touch.
Changing bag. The Wish comes with a neat little (coordinating) changing bag, which contains a changing mat and wet pouch. It’s a great size for a grab and go bag – perfect for the school run!
Bumper bar. The fabric on the bumper bar is removable, which is wonderful as H-Bear likes to get his rather grubby from pushchair snacks and general adventure mess…!
Foam handle bar. I’m not a fan of a foam handle bar as find they get easily saturated in the rain. I really wish Cosatto would introduce a leatherette handle bar on their pushchairs as wet foam really is rather disgusting…
Seat. Because the seat also doubles up as a carrycot for the first stage of the travel system, the seat-part took a bit of time to mould into one that H-Bear could sit in without slipping out of. In fact, it took Busby sitting in the seat to get it into the desired position!
One-handed steer. Sadly, the Wish is not an easy one-handed steer, which isn’t great news when you’ve got more than one child and/or a caffeine addiction and need a hand free for crossing roads/takeaway coffee… I think suspension on the wheels might help this issue. The pushchair is definitely loosening up a bit now we’ve been using it for a few months, but the lack of suspension is a bit of a pain when you’re crossing the road and have to get up on a curb whilst holding your eldest’s hand!
There’s nothing ugly about this beautiful travel system.
Anything to add?
The Wish is not the ideal pushchair if you like long walks on difficult terrain, or live somewhere mostly cobbled (I struggled a bit in Lewes – especially when trying to hold Busby’s hand and push), but it is ideal for our urban usage.
It’s a fantastic pushchair if you use public transport a fair amount, live in a city, or have a small boot! The basket is amazing and there are lots of features I love about it. Nick is also a huge fan of the Wish, and he’s enjoyed pushing it around Whitby over the weekend.
The Wish costs £450 RRP (includes cosytoes, raincover, chest pads and changing bag) and the Port 0+ carseat costs £180 (which includes ISOFIX base). The prices also include the Cosatto 4 year guarantee. Find out more on the Cosatto website!
