There were a few in the running in the end but none of them quite hit the spot somehow. They were either slightly too bulky, didn't come with the right extras or weren't exciting enough. I couldn't make up my mind.
|Love at first push!|
So, imagine my delight when the fabulously cool people from Cosatto came to the rescue by asking if we'd like to try out their Swift Lite Supa pushchair. The 'Little Monster' design was perfect for TC and I have to admit, I was in love with it before the box even arrived on our doorstep.
I've always loved the Cosatto brand. Their products are fresh, funky and fabulous - what's not to love about them?
We were off on a break to Tenby last week so it was the perfect time to really put the pushchair to the test...

Although we were only going away for a week we had a lot of luggage! Going away on a UK break always means packing for all seasons (although we seem to luck out by selecting the perfectly sunny first week of September!) but add to that a 5 month old baby and all the trimmings you have a boot full! We managed to fit 2 medium suitcases, a large holdall, a travel cot and the Swift Lite Supa into the car boot.

As I've said, the pushchair definitely lives up to it's name. As well as being really lightweight with a superb compact fold, the Swift Lite Supa is fabulous to push. It's really nippy and was a dream to use in and around Tenby. We negotiated hills, bends, cobbles and the beach and it was amazing. We even got a boat across to Caldey Island and the pushchair was lifted onto the boat complete with TC still in it, whereas other people who had larger heavy pushchairs had to remove their little ones and collapse theirs.
It also took our buggy board brilliantly so we were able to push MC and TC together, with ease. In fact, the Swift Lite Supa is actually easier to manoeuvre with the buggy board attached than our complete travel system.
So, all in all, the Cosatto Swift Lite Supa gets the thumbs up from our whole family. TC is just so happy in it. I've also done a brief vlog below (my first one...eek - maybe next time I do one I'll actually appear in it. A bit camera shy this week!) so you can see just some of the features I love about it.
