What's in the box? Unpacking the Cosatto Giggle

My C-Section may have been cancelled for the 16th October but that day I had another delivery which helped to put the smile back on my face - it may not have been the baby I had been expecting that day however it was a special 'Treet' for my baby instead.

Cosatto are renowned for having colourful designed Nursery products, gone are the days of boring one colour designs with a Brand such as Cosatto each product is given it's own personality and that even extends to the box too.



Inside the box was the following:

* Chassis with 3 wheels which are easy to attach
* Carrycot - suitable from birth
* Seat  Unit - suitable from 6+ months
* Matching footmuff & changing bag (with changing mat & wet bag)
*Raincover
*Shopping basket
We also received a separate box containing the 'Treet' car seat which is available to buy separately and the car seat adaptors.

Setting it up:

Being over 39 weeks pregnant at the time I left the unpacking and setting up process to Emmy and Daddy who wasted no time in getting it all out - throwing aside the instructions in typical man fashion they started.


 


Emmy was adamant that the wheels were steering wheels and drove around the kitchen while Daddy finished unpacking.

Taking off all the wrapping was another fun game for Emmy.  She then helped Daddy to click the wheels into place, the 2 single wheels at the back of the chassis and the double wheel onto the front.




To unfold the chassis you need to unclasp the clip on the side, pull up the handle and press your foot on the brake bar and it unfolds very easily and quickly.
 
Folding it up again is just as easy - push in the safety button on the the right and pull the levers towards you.  The chassis then folds at the front and the handle drops downwards.  You can then fold the handle inwards to make it even smaller.
 

The basket is a large size, big enough for a few shopping bags or as Emmy has decided great space for her Dolly.

The Giggle 'Treet' has a lightweight aluminium chassis (6.1 kg) with matching Green accents to the frame which matches perfectly to the colour fabric of the seat unit, carrycot and car seat. 

The Carrycot and Seat Unit clip straight onto the frame quite easily and are removed by pressing in the small buttons on the side, this is a little difficult to do as the buttons are quite small however with practise it becomes easier.  The seat unit can be both parent and forward facing.

The brake is flip flop friendly and extremely easy to use and very effective.
 
Other features include: Compact fold, quick release removable wheels, lockable front wheels, adjustable handle height, carry handle on the carrycot with a gate opening mechanism, removable liner in the carrycot, firm mattress allowing use as an overnight sleeper if needed and a weather apron.  The seat unit has 3 recline positions, a removable bumper bar and toy loops in the hood, it also has pockets in the back for keys, phone or a snack if needed. Free 4 year guarantee.
 
The footmuff/liner is 4 way reversible meaning you can easily change the look of this pushchair with great ease.
 
The car seat is available separately and needs the adaptors to be able to use it and needs to be the Cosatto car set as at present it is the only car seat which is compatible with this pushchair. 
 
A great feature I have noticed is with the seat unit buckles, it is a standard 5 point harness however it closes seperately one side at a time - great for when I'm using with Emmy and she struggles shouting "I don't want to be strapped in!"
 
Now I'm more mobile I will be using each part of this 3 in 1 travel system and will let you know what I think.

  2. Thought you'd like to know that the Bugaboo coffee cup holder fits the chassis too with the largest clip. We have the Golightly edition and are loving it - so pleased I didn't go bugaboo now. I'd glady pay another £60 or so for some bigger wheels more suited to grass and rougher ground though. I'd quite like some clips to attach to a maxi-cosy too.

    Cheers
