What do you get if you combine super sharp design, versatile seating and four wheels? The Cosatto Yo! Zowee of course!
Little Mr and I were recently sent the Cosatto Yo! Zowee to put through its paces and it’s been on quite an adventure. Not only has it hit the streets of Birmingham but the Zowee has been abroad with us on an airplane to Turkey and has sampled Turkish beach life.
First Impressions of the Cosatto Yo! Zowee
The Cosatto Yo! Zowee is striking. You can’t fail to miss it with its super monochrome pattern and eye catching bolt graphic. I love the shape of the pushchair and it’s really easy to push. The black aluminium chassis is lightweight at only 7kg so when your growing toddler is seated inside, it’s not too heavy to push at all.
The seat is a good size and has proved to be very comfortable for Little Mr. Once strapped in using the five point harness, he has happily sat in the pushchair whilst we’ve been shopping and even fell asleep in it on holiday. The seat has multiple position recline which is great but I do find the mechanism for moving the seat up and down a bit fussy. However the seat can be used from birth as the seat will lie flat.
What I love about the Yo!, apart from the design and it’s maneuverability, is how easy it is to put up and down. Thanks to a compact umbrella fold, the Yo! can be put up in under 10 seconds with no hassle and fuss and similarly, can be put down super fast too. The auto lock is easily released and when putting the Yo! down it locks into position well containing the pushchair in carry mode. using the in-built carry handle.
The basket on the Yo! is pretty standard and we’ve stored quite a number of items in there over the last month. It is easy to get into with the seat fully upright but if the seat was fully reclined you may struggle to get your stuff in and out.
The wheels on the Yo! Zowee are very durable (puncture proof tyres no less) and with the front lockable swivel wheels it really does go where you want it too. We used the pushchair on route to the airport whilst trailing our suitcases behind and we had no issues when we had to steer with one hand (obviously not advised but just an example of how easy it is to push!) The 2 pedal brake system are simple to use and work well.
The hood is great for fun in the sunshine as it provides UPF 50+ protection but I would love the hood to extend further down to shade the sun from precious faces but it does the job.
The Cosatto Yo! Zowee comes with a whole bundle of accessories including a cosytoes footmuff with its unique Kanga pouch for warming little hands (which we have yet to use due to the hot weather) which can be reversed and used as a Summer liner too, a brilliantly sized rain cover stored in its own matching pattern bag (which we have used to the unreliable British weather) and a matching changing bag which is a fantastic little extra.
I love how I can pick up the Yo! Zowee so easily, detach the front wheels and fold it up and place it in the boot of my car (5 door Corsa) Very few of the other pushchairs I have reviewed are that compact and easy to stow away.
The Cosatto Yo! Zowee is exclusive to Very and it priced at £279 (prices as of 2014).
Although you might think it’s a bit pricey for a stroller, it is easy to use, brilliant to push and fantastic to use on day trips and holidays. The included accessories totally justify the price as does the quality and reliability of the pushchair. We really enjoyed using it. Thanks Cosatto!
