Our first outing with the Ooba was a washout.
It was one of those days, a rainbow day, filled with sunshine and showers.
I put Bea into the spacious carry cot and she concentrated hard on the pretty floral design on the inside of the hood while I busied myself getting us ready to meet the rest of the family at the park.
Granny and Aunty had been admiring the pretty pink pram and had commented that there would be lots of volunteers to push Baby in her pram.
So excited was I to show off Bea in her Kimono carriage that I forgot to remove the plastic from the immaculate white wheels.
I am glad now that the wrapping was overlooked.
It meant that after our first adventure the tyres were still bright white.
We stepped out of the door, breathing in the summer air
And then the heavens opened
As one dark cloud dumped it’s thunderous load on us
I whipped the raincover out from the shopping basket
Attached it quickly and easily to the carry cot
We had just got to the park and Daddy told us to turn round and go back
I was soaked, through all my layers of clothes to my skin
But Baby Bea was happy and dry
The Cosatto Kimono Ooba is a beautiful travel system
And the raincover as well as looking pretty
Is perfectly practical
Quick and easy to use and keeping baby completely dry
Even in the heaviest rainfall I have experienced for quite some time
I fell in love with the Cosatto Ooba many months ago
It was love at first sight and went on my wishlist for Baby 4
When I saw the Kimono design
I knew it was the perfect pattern
For our very precious Rainbow Baby Girl
The pink is a dreamy blossom pink
With a contrasting floral print
This is striking for adults to look at
And also engaging for babies
Who love to focus on contrasting patterns
As their eye sight develops in their earliest days
Bea loves watching the sunlight dance on the hood of her carry cot
It makes a magical pattern for her eyes to try and follow
The Ooba carry cot is spacious and seems comfortable
Bea sleeps well in the pram when out and about
And has had the occasional nap in the house in it too
We took the Ooba on holiday with us
People commented on how light the chassis was
And it is
This makes it great for lifting in and out of the car
The Ooba is easy to push and steer
Someone commented on the luxurious feel of the handle bar
Like the steering wheel in a very nice car
The Ooba is made to look striking and stylish
But it is practical and comfortable to use too
The Ooba does look great
And each time we have promenaded with it
I have felt heads turn as we walked past
The Cosatto Ooba Kimono is a pram that gets noticed!
It is also a travel system with great design
The height of the handle can be easily adjusted
And I love that the brake is on the handle
Making it easy to click on and off
The shopping basket is a good size
And easy to access from all angles
The Cosatto Ooba travel system is completed with
We have the isofix base which makes getting the seat in and out of the car a breeze
We brought Bea home from the hospital in this seat
And it did look like the seat was holding her close
Snuggled in the newborn babynest
Bea will be 4 weeks old tomorrow
We have mostly been at home
Making the most of newborn snuggles
And trying to find our way as a family of five (again)
As the weeks go on we will be getting out more and more
And I will be writing a full review of the Ooba here for you to read
You can also follow our #KimonoCapers over on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram
So far we are absolutely Ooba the moon
With our travel system
And feel very honoured that Bea was the very first Kimono baby in the UK
PS – We have now taken the plastic off the wheels, the Ooba Kimono is here to stay!
If you would like your baby to be a Kimono baby or an Ooba baby, you can find a list of stockists here
We have been given an Ooba Kimono Travel System free of charge as part of our work as a Cosatto Brand Buddy. All opinions are honest and my own.
