Who doesn’t love a bit of retro?
Ra ra skirts, the Flumps and Pacers, just a snippet of little memory joggers from an era of playing out till sunset and 4 channels on the TV. Call me nostalgic, call me old, call me what you want but there are somethings from my childhood which will always make me smile. And space hoppers, who remembers space hoppers? I’m talking the bright orange faced ones; the 80’s child’s answer to a trampoline.
So naturally, when looking for a light weight stroller to see us through some day trips and a mini break, the Cosatto Supa Go Hoppit caught my eye. The fun and funky designs are the trademark of cosatto and Hoppit certainly raised a smile and stirred up a few conversations on a recent break in Center Parcs making me think that I’m not alone in my retro love.
But thats not all we found when transporting the lively one from A – B. With an train journey on the horizon, I was naturally a little apprehensive about managing a toddler, luggage and stroller while boarding and changing platforms.
But with my BabyMule changing bag safely on my back, rucksac style (couldn’t have done without that beauty on tis particular journey), reins as an added safety precaution and the auto click lock and side carry handle (which also doubles as a spot for the toddler to hold on to when wanting to walk.) it was a breeze.
But how did the Supa Go handle being out and about?
Well, pretty good actually. With the sun shining the extendable UPF50+ sunshade has been a godsend and when caught out in a shower minus the rain cover, it kept most of toddler dry bar his legs (which I covered with his coat so no drama there.
There’s also an adjustable leg rest which I tend to pop up when he naps as the back reclines really low giving a nice, comfortable sleeping position (and buying me a much needed opportunity to work during nap time!)
The Supa Go Added Extras
In fact, there’s so many little extra features of this stroller which you can adjust to your needs, only this morning I realised that the handles can be extended (I’m a shortie so haven’t needed them until the husband had to use it) and that the from t wheels can be locked into position which was really handy going over bumpy ground on our morning dog walk.
We’ve popped a liner in as I’m making a conscious effort to keep it in tip top condition and avoid suncream stains as per our previous, white splodged stroller and helps keep the toddler cool. But this is just an added luxury as the seat unit is nicely padded.
So thumbs up from the toddler and I for out and about strolling retro style, in all weathers. (And being comfortable enough for a well earned afternoon nap)
I was sent this pushchair for my honest review and received no monetary compensation. All words and photographs are entirely my own.
