Cosatto You 2 Twin Sis and Bro
Advantages: Looks great
Disadvantages: Too heavy, too narrow, rubbish wheels
I've read through the good reviews this pram has recieved and I felt I should put my tuppence worth in.
The very minute I saw someone pushing this gorgeous double pushchair around town I had to have it! I had a 1 year old daughter and was expecting a little boy - so the design of this pram was perfect. It was simply the novelty of having a pink and a blue side that attracted me, which I'm sure is the reason why everyone who buys this pram, wants it.
To be honest, the price is quite expensive for what it is - it's a very basic double pushchair - you are simply paying for the design.
2 storage baskets
3 handles (good for shopping bags, and baby changing bag)
Matching accessories come as standard (footmuffs, headrests, bottle bags)
This pushchair is really heavy, I know you'd expect a double pushchair to be heavier than normal, but it is heavier than normal double pushchairs - once folded it's really heavy to lift and carry, for example to put into a boot.
The inside of the hoods are light colours, which get easily stained. For example, when you fold up the pram - if the wheels are muddy/dirty, this will transfer directly onto the hood and is really hard to wash off.
The wheels are really basic, the rubber is thin - and they don't swivel, which makes manoeurving nigh on impossible. For example, when you cross the road and clamber up the kerb and onto the pavement, it is difficult to change direction, you have to practically physically lift the pram on narrow pavements.
Also, it comes with two footmuffs, and unless you have a twin girl and boy baby, you will be requiring this pushchair for a baby and an older child. Well, the footmuffs are deep/long enough for a baby but not really for older children, so one will be all snug and warm and the other will have to go without!
Last bad point, and the most important for me....each pram seat compartment is too narrow, my daughter is now 2years old and is a petite girl and she just looks squished up in the pram, I've since heard a lot of other mums complain about the same thing.
Anyway, my daughter is walking now, so we've ditched the double pushchair and have a single for my son with a buggy board for my daughter.
I'd consider wisely before purchasing this pram. Sure...it looks stylish, but it's not that practical, it's too heavy, too narrow and it's impossible to manoeurve.
Summary: I'd suggest road-testing prams in-store.
