Eliza is at that in-between age, where she often wants to walk, but isn’t big enough to walk for long. This means that a stroller is perfect for us right now – lightweight, compact fold, and easy to pop Eliza in and out when she needs to rest her legs. The Cosatto Supa ticks all those boxes, and then some.
I actually wish we had discovered the Supa earlier, as it is suitable from birth, with a full, one hand recline and adjustable leg rest. It’s really lightweight, and has been easy to manoeuvre from the car to the pavement. The fold is pretty compact too – it’s a traditional umbrella fold, but must be slightly shorter than some as it actually fits lengthways in our boot instead of diagonal or widthways – bonus! There is an auto lock which activates upon folding, and the chassis will freestand for storage too.
One of the first things you notice about the Supa is the iconic Cosatto design. We have the Magic Unicorns colourway, and you can’t miss us! It’s bright, funky and very on trend with the current love of rainbows and unicorns. I particularly love all the little details, such as the rainbow clouds on the chest straps and the wheels.
One of the things I have always looked for in a pushchair is an adjustable handle height, but this is something you don’t often find with strollers. However, the Cosatto Supa does have adjustable handles. There is a small button at the base of the handle, and this allows them to be pulled up or down to suit you. I will say that the lowest setting is *just about* OK for me – if I was an inch or so shorter I would find the handles too high, even on the lowest setting.
Another real plus point is the size of the UPF50+ hood – it’s MASSIVE. There are 2 settings – with the hood zipped up, you have a standard sized hood providing cover that is perfect for everyday. Unzip the hood however, and you have a huge range of cover, extending down to cover most of the seat. This is ideal for really sunny days, and offers extra protection against wind and drizzle too.
Inside the hood is a multimedia gadget pocket with speaker, into which you can slot a tablet or iPad. Although this isn’t something we would use personally, I can see the value of this for times when you just need 5 minutes for a doctors appointment or to check in at the airport. Of course, you can also use this pocket for flash cards or photos – the options really are endless, and it does offer the opportunity for learning on the go.
The Supa package comes with a footmuff for the colder weather, which is reversible – so you can choose the design you fancy each day. It has a handy kangaroo pouch on the top to keep little hands warm, and the top can be zipped right off to leave a cosy liner for warmer days.
To take the footmuff and liner on and off, you need to remove the harness straps. This is done by threading in and out of the seat back, which is a little bit fiddly. This also allows you to adjust the harness height if required. The straps themselves are very adjustable, and at 2 years old Eliza still has plenty of growing room in these. They clip together easily, although sometimes the chest strap attachment slips off of the waist strap and you need to reconnect before fastening the harness.
There is a small footrest for older toddlers, which is at a great height for Eliza at the moment. The seat is really spacious, although it can be made more cosy for tiny babies by using the head hugger included in the pack. Pushing is a breeze because of the super light aluminium frame and lockable swivel wheels. We have trekked across pavements, grass and muddy lanes with relative ease, although gravel did slow us down. Locking the wheels does help with more challenging surfaces.
There is even a really good sized cup holder for refreshments on the go – winner 😉
Eliza loves the Cosatto Supa Magic Unicorns stroller, and is really keen to use it – which is a real help on those busy school run mornings when you just need to get going. She has plenty of growing room still, and I am confident this will last us until we no longer need a pushchair. I love the fact that this can be used from newborn right through to toddler age, and all the little added extras make it a great value option. The harness can be slightly niggly, and the handle height could do with a lower setting, but apart from that, this stroller is a real all rounder, and perfect for anyone who loves a bit of rainbows and unicorns in their life.
