My name is Leyla and I am a Mum to two girls aged 3 years and the other 15 months. We spend a lot of our time outdoors. We love exploring new places and discovering new things. The girls love to be active and we are always busy doing something. Working full time during the week means we try to fit in as much as possible over the weekends. Looking forward to seeing how the Supa fits in with our busy life.
Our Cosatto Supa was delivered on a rather wet and cold Saturday morning. The box was bright and colourful and I, like the girls were eager to open up the box. I could manage to pick the box up myself as it was not too heavy.
I was worried that the pushchair may have got wet from all of the rain. How sometimes you open a box and the content is incredibly wet due to the outside environment, but this was not the case. The Cosatto Supa is very well packaged in order to protect against external environment and to keep safe during transit.
I was very impressed that everything is set up. There are no wheels to screw on or to lock into place, it is all done for you. There is everything included in the box, cup holder, cosy toes, rain cover and hood. The Supa is ready to go straight out of the box. The hood and cup holder simply click into place.
First impression are really good and am looking forward to trying out the Cosatto Supa
I was rather impressed at how well packed the Cosatto Supa is but yet how little waste there actually is. The box is recyclable but the amount thrown in the bin can fit into my hand. Good environmental impact. Well worth thinking about how much rubbish you need to get rid of after purchasing an item.
I took the Cosatto Supa shopping on Tuesday as I needed to try on some new clothes and was very pleasantly surprised to see that I could fit the Supa into a normal sized changing cubicle. This is great to know when I am out and about with the girls I can go and try on clothes.
The box which the Cosatto Supa comes in is a great size. Its the same length as the Supa folder but its just wide enough for my 3 year old to fit through. This makes it perfect for playing tunnels with. A great way to keep little ones entertained on the wet days.
The Cosatto Supa is very lightweight and easy to push. I had it set up in the hall ready to clean and my youngest climbed in so my eldest could push her around.

We went on holiday to Cornwall and took our Cosatto Supa with us. I was worried it might not perform well on Sandy surfaces, like previous pushchairs I have owned. My daughter had fallen asleep in the car so I decided to give it ago.
I found it difficult to push at first and then I remembered I could lock the two front wheels. This is really simple by just pushing the button down on either wheel to lock into place. I then found it really simple and easy to push on the sand, with little effort.
The window on the hood was great, I could keep having a look at my daughter to make sure she was ok. She discovered it was there too and kept having a look back.
The lie flat seat means that the Cosatto Supa is suitable from a newborn. It really is lie flat and a simple lever at the back of the chair enables you to select one of the 4 recline functions. My daughter slept very well in the supa.
The hood has a double fold. There is a zip which takes the hood from been a standard sized to extra long, providing extra shade when out on the beach for my daughter whilst she slept.
When she awoke I could easily adjust her seat so she was still on a slight angle and yet she could watch us on the beach whilst she woke up fully.
The Cosatto Supa is a perfect light weight stroller to take away on holiday and great for using on the beach.

The foam handles on the Cosatto Supa are lovely and soft and give a great grip making it easy to push over a variety surfaces.
The lie flat seat is great when your little one is over tired. I could lie it flat and push it round until she fell asleep. She would be secure and comfortable and sleep.
The seat has 4 positions. The main up right position is perfect for enjoying the sunshine, walking in the park and even enjoying an ice cream. A great comfy seat.
I have really loved having a good look at the Cosatto Supa this week. I love that there is branding to show that this is a Great British design. The Cosatto Branding is also very subtle but very clever in its layout.
I took the Supa shopping this week and not only was I impressed with the amount of shopping I could get in the very generous basket, but also the amount of shopping that fitted on the handles too.
My daughter really loves the handle on the right hand side. Although this is for carrying the Supa when it is folded, when unfolded it is her special handle for her to hold on to the pushchair and it keeps her safe.

No pictures this week as I have been away, but in my absence my Husband has used the Cosatto. He commented on how light weight and easy it was to push. I love that he took it out which shows how great it must be to use.

I have been trying out the Cosytoes this week; as the weather has got colder this is definitely needed. I love that the whole thing is reversible meaning that you have a choice of designs. Also that it is included with the whole stroller at no extra cost. I found it very easy to attach to the main pushchair and easy to strap my daughter into. The whole thing is lovely and soft, it has a fleece lining and a space at the top for them to put their hands into, keeping little ones very snugly and warm.

I have had some really lovely experiences this week with the Cosatto.

I had a thought this week about some of the things I would really want to know about owning a push chair, what are some of the things I would want to know:
December the 4th 2013
Having a few issues this week with the brakes sticking. The brake is easy to apply and is situated by the back of each of the back wheels. For an unknown reason the left brake works fine, but the right brake you really have to hear to click to know it has been applied else it does not work.
December the 8th 2013
As a very busy family who like to be out and about, sometimes the extra things that put our mind at ease makes a huge difference. I really love that all Cosatto pushchairs come with a 4 year guarantee. This makes a difference to me and I know that my push chair is taken care of for the life I would want to use it for. That to me is extra service.
December the 12th 2013.
The brakes still have not improved. They work fine from one side, and apply a full hold but the other side you really have to make sure you listen for the click. I had a runaway push chair earlier in the week as I did not listen for the click. I am sure I will get used to it.
December the 16th 2013
It has been rather wet and windy meaning our walks and use of the Supa have been a little limited. I am finding the Cosy toes also more difficult to use. My daughters feet are right at the bottom, if she is asleep then I cannot fasten up the cosy toes for fear of waking her up. If she is awake she sits cross legged in order to fit in. There does not appear to be any give and so I really do struggle to zip it up at times. I do not think my 19 month old is particularly tall for her age.
December the 23rd 2013
As it becomes darker quicker a lot of our walking is done at night. I noticed the other night as we were out how hard it was to see other people and their pushchairs in the dark, yet the pattern on my Cosatto stood out. This was great when my husband had to come and find us, he managed to spot us on the path thanks to the design on the Supa. I really loved that we were not stood out in the rain with him looking for us.
December the 30th 2013
It has been a rather wet week here which has meant there has been lots and lots of mud when we have been walking. The Supa has certainly been put through its paces. It has handled very well through some tough sticky mud which has left me very impressed. Although we have come back incredibly muddy, the Supa has been very easy to clean up. Everything is wipe clean and I have even had the hose pipe on the wheels to get rid of all the loose dirt too. Good cleanability and overall good handling through some sticky mud!
Having an active outdoor lifestyle, it's important that the Supa would be light enough and sturdy enough to push one handed. I often need to hold my 3 year old's hand or pick her up if she's a little tired which means I have one hand to walk the dog and push the chair. Although not the easiest of pushchairs to push one handed, it is possible with slight corrections here and there. I think this is because there are two separate handles instead of one large one. The supa is lightweight though so easy to push round.

I have spent the past two weeks in bed as I have been very poorly. I have therefore not taken the Cosatto out and about and don't really have an update to write about. I am feeling a little more human today so fingers crossed can get out.
January the 26th 2014
I am still under the weather and not ventured out much.
As I have been poorly and not out and about I was a little worried I might forget either how to put the Supa together or how to fold and unfold. It was however second nature, I was able to attach the hood with ease and even remembered that I could choose which side the cup holder attaches to. Folding and unfolding was no problem either and I managed in high winds and bitter cold rain.
February the 10th 2014
Today I learnt a rather valuable lesson, if the Mud you are pushing the pushchair through reaches the bottom of the shopping basket you are more than likely going to get stuck. I did indeed get stuck! Its a good job the pushchair is light, even with my daughter in it, as there was no other way to get out of the mud than carry it.
February the 25th 2014
I've really enjoyed testing the Supa for the past six months. I loved how when the Supa arrived it was ready to go out of the box. There was no need to purchase anything extra as all cosy toes and rain covers where included. The Supa is light weight and easy to push and I found it incredibly useful that it was able to stand up when folded. It was a great advantage to me that I could fold and unfold with one hand. There is plenty of storage with the extra pockets which meant often I could go out without a bag, as nappies and wipes could be kept in the storage pockets. Overall this is an expectional pushchair that really has its own personality.
