“ Brand: Cosatto / Type: Twin Stroller „
This buggy is most blokes worst nightmare.....pink, pink, pink and more pink! When I found out I was expecting a girl for the second time round, my husband couldn't tell me we needed a neutral buggy anymore.
Originally I wanted to buy a buggy which had one seat infront of the other, but when I saw the exact buggy I originally wanted being pushed by two other women I changed my mind. They looked like they were driving a bus, it was that long. One woman couldn't open doors with them as her arms wouldn't stretch long enough to do so.
I absolutely love pink, so when I had another think about which buggy I wanted, this one jumped out at me straight away. I did see others which were cheaper-but I didn't like them half as much. I wasn't so keen on the wheels at first, as I was used to pushing a three wheel buggy which had big, sturdy wheels, but with only a couple of months left till my baby arrived I decided to give it a go.
Besides the fact that pink is my favourite colour, I liked the fact that the buggy came complete with free head huggers, chest pads, insulated bottle carriers and cosy toes (with kangaroo pouch and a zip-off fleece liner). Some of these items cost a lot of money when you're buying them on their own-but I wanted to make sure my babies were nice and snug.
Another reason I chose this buggy is that it is from birth. Some of the other double buggies which I looked at, the youngest child 'had to' sit in a certain place. Anyone who has young children knows that children can be awkward at the best of times. I can guarantee that if I tell my eldest to sit at the front, she will have a tantrum, just because she can. The Cosatto You2 Little Tweeters Twin Stroller is perfect, as both of my girls can sit side by side and play together and see what the other is doing. It makes my life a hell of a lot easier.
The tweet tweet buggy also comes with a raincover-bit of a pain to put on when you're in a rush, but it does fit well. It has an easy umbrella fold, lockable swivel front wheels, and three recline positions, which are easy to adjust. This buggy has two decent sized storage baskets underneath, and it has three handles to make it easier to manouvre (though I tend to buy half the shops-and use it to carry all my shopping bags!
One of the things which impressed me so much about this buggy is that it came with a four year guarantee-but don't make the same mistake as I did and leave it in the box until a couple of weeks before the baby was due. In order for the guarantee to be valid, you have to register your details within 28 days of purchase. I did still get a years guarantee from Argos but 4 years would have been a lot better.
We have now had this buggy for ten months. We had to send it back to Cosatto as the wheels were sticking-but I think that was more to do with the fact that I ran over a bucket handle which somebody had chucked on the ground, and it got caught in the wheels. We also had a slight issue that the brake kept coming off. Even though it was my fault they still sent a courier to collect it-who arrived when they said it would, and the buggy was returned on exactly the same day they said it would. It's come back with a fresh handle, they have lubricated the wheels and tightened some bolts up. It is a lot stiffer to put up, but the wheels are working perfectly now. The customer service has been fantastic from Cosatto-and the buggy equally as good.
We purchased this buggy for £229 from Argos, as it was in the sale. It currently retails for £279 from Argos-although I have seen it a lot cheaper online. As with anything, you just need to look around.
I would recommend this buggy to anyone. Although we did have the problem with the brake, they were quick to fix it. I love the fact that the buggy fits into almost any shop, without the girls having limited space to move about. Fantastic buy
