Cosatto Giggle - Travel System Review!

Oh gosh, let me start by the sheer awesomeness which is the Pixelate pattern, I LOVE it! The fresh bold in your face colourful design is amazing and is a proper head turner as I walk Bee down the street - it attracts comments and looks and I quite simply just love it!

We have been testing out the Giggle Travel System for quite a few weeks now and it's been with us out and about enough to tell you our thoughts!

First off its a beautiful designed pram with a huge hood which is great for shielding either the sun or wind out of baby's face - I love the fact that it has a variant of the design on the underside which makes it look funky!

It has a sturdy lap bar which is easy to remove and can be put through the cosy toes and we also thread toys on there to keep Bee entertained You can either take the bar fully off or release it one side whilst you take your little one out.

The harness straps come off easily for washing so its nice and convenient for general baby ickyness! though the crotch strap does come off a little too easy too and you do end up threading them back on alot.

The seat unit can recline in 4 different positions and is great for nap times as there is ample space inside with the generous hood. I found the buttons to recline a little stiff at first but I struggle with my Hypermobility so that could just be me!

The Giggle has a great foot rest which looks very comfortable with lots of room!

The shopping basket is huge and is one thing I really look for in a Pram- it ticks all the boxes for us and holds our changing back plus shopping.

The wheels are easy to push and the front is lockable for different terrains - where we live I tend to keep it on swivel mode as its easier.

The Giggle is very easy to push and feels lightweight and not bulky. I love that it has different positions for the handles, especially as my husband is a giant (6'3) and he finds a lot of other brand buggies hard to push with low bars.

I love that you can fold the Giggle down with the seat attached, which is something that's rare with other travel systems - although you need to make sure the seat unit is forward facing to do this.

I have relatively small boot to my car and i find the Giggle fits in perfect, it doesn't take up a huge amount of space and we can fit shopping bags around it which is handy.

Here Bee is forward facing sitting right up - he is a large 12 month old here (in 18-24 month clothes!) so you can see how comfortable looking it is.

I personally would recommend the Giggle Travel System, I wish I had had it when Bee was teeny so I could have used the carry cot too as it's all beautiful!
